    Does anyone know how many quarts of hydraulic fluid an e-60 pump takes? Thank you

    Just doing a rebuild-around 1 1/2. You have to measure from the top though.

    E60 Pump Fluid Measurement

    Also keep in mind that you may not just be filling the power unit itself. You may be also filling the angle rams and hoses. Make sure you fill the pump, bleed the rams by loosening the fittings at the ram and working the plow back and forth, up and down. This will get the air out of the system. Check the fluid level in the power unit again. By the way, if you bought a rebuilt unit, make sure you flush the unit with hydro-flush before adding any fluid. Most reputable rebuild companies drain all fluid and flush with Naptha before shipment. Naptha will remain in the system until flushed. Naptha does not compress at the same rate as hydraulic fluid.

    the pump itself holds 44 oz/1 quart and a half pint, the cylinders hold 16 ounces for a whopping total of 1.9 quarts, buy 3 bottles and use 2 and keep the third for when you blow a hydro hose and have to refill
