I don't know if I need it or not yet, just checking around. If it was cheap/easy I'd just buy one and replace it.

I can't get the suction hose off the bottom of the reservoir. It looks like a pipe thread on it, is that right? Or is it one of those goofy pipe thread/taper things and the nut on the res spins? Too late to figure it out tonight.

FYI getting the fan motor out requires simply (hahaha) removing the res completely and removing the bolts from the angle iron bracket that holds the fan motor to the chassis. Then you can slide the whole mess out of the shroud or just angle it over a bit to get wrenches on it.

so that valve will stick--


Rick in Forth worth posted a long time ago to drill out the office bigger so if the valve sticks..it will bypass enuf that it wouldn't blow fan motor.


also if your return hose is not flowing right..it can build back pressure on motor
i found one Hyd Can that had not had clear flow from return on the can..the hole was not drilled out complete from factory and once repaired--good to go my old 94 WB



Chaps information is the facts..used them on a bus this spring

Here is the hydraulic diagram for an 83:

Thanks Jeff,

That pdf has now been added to the WOG database.

I'm searching for Rick's info on that, haven't found it yet.

Now that I think about it I remember a few times on the drive down here that when the fan kicked *off* I felt a "jerk" from the engine. I need to get that valve apart.

I also need to get that huge line off the reservoir, any hints there? I think it's a pipe thread and doesn't want to come off!

I have seen many of the reservoirs with a elded bottom.
The weight of the hoses and a side load on the hoses or a big guy with a long wrench has cracked the bottoms.
Andy,feel free to head over here if you need help.

I'm marooned here, I have to get that res all the way out and the only hose I can't get off of it is the large one that feed the pump on the engine.

The drawing that Jeff posted shows a swivel fitting so be sure you’re trying to turn the nut the right way.

So here is what mine looked like when I was putting it back together:

The big lines both had an adapter in the bottom to go from npt to jic. The one with the t is a swivel fitting, the other line feeding the pump is just a 90 degree jic fitting. I had to use a backer wrench to keep the fitting in the reservoir from spinning while breaking the line loose. Much easier if you can pull the reservoir out to get to these lines.

I have conquered the line on the reservoir, it and the motor are out! There is no plate on the motor, but there are tapped holes for one. My old motor is here and it has the plate.

Jeff - I looked up your thread and studied the pix, but your setup is slightly different, and you have a different model reservoir as well. Mine has the giant hole in the middle with a t-handled expansion plug on it for filling. The supply line to the pump has pipe threads on both ends with the taper inside. The 90 degree elbow on the bottom of the res has a nut and I just needed to turn it the other direction. I figured it out last night and put the wrench on today and it just popped right off, no hassle.
