    New holland 8340 hydraulic system air bleed

    They never need bleeding, if they have air in system something is wrong, when fitting any new filters that are upright fuel, engine oil, or hyd then fill filters before fitting i even put oil in horizontal ones the reason being more so if on suction side, pumps can be dry until oil gets there.

    Rubic cube, could be weak selector rod spring or more likely synchro worn, spring done from top off cab on but box out if not, can leave cab on which is what i did if farm job, special tool to lock top of box or one can be made, without it you will be lucky to get all gears when top put on.
