 B7800 Puked!!

Got my engine oil and filter changed out at the 50 hour service interval so I decided to change the two transmission/hydro filters. Swapped out the left side filter with no probs, lost a few drops of fluid. I expected this. But when it came time for the right side, watch out. I got the filter off and fluid gushed out everywhere. I couldn't believe it. By the time I got the new filter on, I lost over a gallon of fluid. I know because the gallon that I filled it back up with was not enough. Back to the parts store tomorrow for another gallon. Was there a trick to doing this filter swap? Newbie here so go easy. Smile

Will the strainer gush out fluid when I go to clean it? Also, will I have to bleed the hydrolics now that I have almost swapped out half the fluid? Any tips or hints would be much appreciated. Thanks very much!!

You will always get some fluid coming out when you just swap out the filters. You need to be sure the loader (if you have one) and the rear hitch are relaxed. It helps but not 100%. I'm from the old school that if you are going to change the filters - change the oil while you are at it. This was started because of enviromental concerns. UDT, although it isn't dirt cheap, is a cheap insurance policy if you plan on keeping your machine. My suggestion, which will probably be over ridden, is to change the fluid and filters especially if you plan on keeping the machine. When you drain the fluid prior to taking the filters off you get less mess.

As far as bleeding, be sure you are topped off and run the machine through a few cycles. Loader first then check it and top off if needed. Then run the transmission lightly and check and top off. This is pretty much it. One other suggestion is to fill the filters, if they are right side up, with UDT then screw them on. I do this with all my filters, transmission and engine oil.

Good luck.

Fluid will also drain from the strainer if it is removed without draining the hydro oil. The strainer is sitting in the reservoir, so expect rapid draining.

The power steering circuit is the best way to bleed the hydraulic circuit. Turn the wheel a few times all the way to the left and right. This effectively bleeds the system.
Always change the oil when you change the filters.

Doesn't changing the transmission fluid also change the powering steering fluid?
Is their a PS Filter in addition to the Trans. filter?

Is the B 7800 the only with 2 trans filters?
