Place a suitable container under the tank to collect the fluid FOR Forest King Log Splitter. Make sure it is big enough for the fluid in the container to be good; the fluid is not good on the ground. Disconnect the suction hose from the bottom of the tank.
Carefully remove the inlet filter and clean it with osmotic oil. The hydraulic oil is discharged into a suitable container. The tank capacity is 3 gallons and the capacity of the entire hydraulic system is about 4.7 gallons, making it a large container. Afterwards, reinstall cylinders, hoses, pumps and filters. Screw the hose to 50-60 in-lbs.
Use the dipstick to check the hydraulic oil level. Be careful not to overfill. Tighten the dipstick and tighten until the top of the thread is flush with the top of the pipe. Remember to first disconnect the spark plug and then pull the recoil starter. Hold it and tear it about 10 times. Reconnect the spark plug and start the engine. If you need help, follow the instructions in the Engine Operation Manual.
Use the control handle to engage the wedge - to the furthest position on the beam. Then retract the wedge to the staring position. If necessary, refill the fuel tank in the range marked on the dipstick. Continue 12 times to help remove any trapped air from the system.
A lot of liquid will be sucked into cylinders and hoses. That's why you want to refill the tank to prevent damage to the hydraulic pump.
When the system builds heat and fluid expands, some of the fluid may overflow from the exhaust plug. This is how the distributor balances its level. This is why you do not want to operate the hydraulic shunt separator without proper liquid in the tank. When checking the fluid, be sure to tighten the dipstick until the top of the thread is flush with the top of the pipe. Only second-hand hydraulic and engine oils can be disposed of at approved recycling centers. Contaminants in the fluid may damage the hydraulic components, which is why in the maintenance of fuel tanks, hydraulic pumps or valves, always use kerosene flushing tanks and hoses.
