    So here is the case, Couple days ago had no lift, This truck sits out in the cold.
    Put it in the shop to check it over, after it warmed up lift was fine. So we flushed the oil thinking water. That seemed to work. Until today, was working, then stopped. Motor is getting power, everything seems to be the same case as it was the first time. It's in the shop now warming up to test the theory.

    Likely going to flush it again, and hope. Any other suggestions would be nice. Also it came with ATF in it. Considering putting hydraulic in it. this a bad idea for any reason?

    So 20 mintues in the shop and it works again, As far as I figure, first flush must not have gotten all the water out. or it's to cold for the atf to flow well. Was thinking of puting the fisher blue oil in. same as the plows
