    I have a western unimount. Last night the elbow broke on the hydraulic line where the line connects in the pump. I have replaced the elbow. I did lose fluid when this happened. The motor will make a sound when I go to lift but nothing is moving. I took the plug out of the top of the motor and hydro fluid ran out. I am wondering how I can get this thing going again? Suggestions???????

    You put air into the system by running it low on fluid and thats why fluid came out when you took the fill plug off. You need to remove the vent plug also, which is on the right front corner of the pump if your standing in front of it. Will be a allen wrench plug. With the blade on the ground, fill until fluid comes out the vent hole, put plugs back in and ANGLE the blade left and right without raising it. Repeat the fill process and angle the balde again before raising. May take a little time to work the air out of the system.
