  • '53 hydraulics
  • so here in New England we just has THE BIG BLIZZARD of 2017 (what a joke more rain than anything) i put the rear blade on my Jubilee and it wouldn't lift the three point to save its life. oil level seemed to be fine, it wasnt that cold that the oil would be to thick. I have had it running in colder weather with no issue. any thoughts?

  • The oil probably got thick and you lost prime. I have not worked on one in a while. Seems like there is a screw you remove and introduce oil to the pump. Try letting the tractor warm up beforehand.

  • I have experienced that same problem. A friend who spent 30 years working on Ford tractors suggested pulling dip stick and blow compressed air into that area with the tractor running. It worked. I have done it several times in the past. Try it.

  • Just a word of caution about blowing compressed air into your hydraulic system like that and that is, depending on how well your air compressor is, if it doesn't have a dryer and filters to eliminate precipitation, you may end up introducing water into the system. Air compressors generate a lot of water.

  • NAA hydraulic pumps are notorious for losing prime. Do you have the vane or piston pump? You can find troubleshooting information for the piston pump here:

  • it is not the original pump, i can tell you that. I tried it yesterday and it worked, looking at the dip stick in the day light the fluid was a little cloudy. So i am thinking i may have a little water in there, not sure how that would have happened though. when the weather gets a little nicer i plan on changing all fluids and the rear right hub and seals.
