    Anyone have any sugestions on how to get rid of water in the hydrolic system of my tractor and impliments? I have already done a recent fluid and filter change, but I cant fully get rid of the milky oil.
    Thanks, M-:cry:

    Hey Mike,
    I'm not 100% sure ,but I think you have to keep changing it till it's not milky anymore.
    Use cheap oil till it's clear,then put in whatever you use.

    Oil change is like 9 gal/ ,Could get expensive! I was hoping that someone knew of an inline water seperator or some sort of fluid perhaps that would bond to the water. Alchol? IDK?
    Thanks M-

    Sometimes when you don't get the oil hot enough it won't burn off the condensation

    Grandview- I believe it origionated from the quick connects on the hoe, Dont know how I would get it any hotter to evaperate condensation?
    BTW - I grew up and worked near your neck of the woods, still have family in Depew, Bflo, N.T. and Amherst.- I wish I had your market to work in.

    yup dump it and refill,get oil good and warm,repeat until oil is free from water.
    sometimes at work we will put cardboard over the radiator/oil cooler to get the temp up .
