I'm about ready to burn it all to the ground.

The new filters I bought for the reservoir are 5.1" high. I can't even fit two of them in my res let alone 3. GREAT! Nelson 84220A and Wix 57196 both. I can fit one, and it's taller than the single original one that was in there, whose number I cannot read.

The 3 filters in the reservoir are part number 57317 on mine, which seems to be a tad taller than your part number. As Randy says, wonder if you have a different reservoir, since that means mine is at about 16 inches tall and you say you can't even get 2 filters in there. Might explain why you only found one in there.

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.

I would suspect they forgot the plate if the holes are there, but who knows.

Can you find anything on the reservoir? Mine had a tag under all the grime.
Mine is a donaldson reservoir.

There is a part number cast in the underside of the lid that I wrote down. There might be another part number somewhere. It appears that it's supposed to have two of the filters that it current has 1 of if you ask me. The element in there is about 4" high but larger diameter.

The can resembles the old luberfiner thing I tossed a couple years ago. Looks like the same make.

Randy - I think it's original, fits perfectly and the brackets are all factory-looking.

BTW the motor, fan, and bracketry are back in. I'm taking the valve off shortly to see what's up. The hydraulic guy here has every o-ring known to man, too.

Am I crazy to spin the giant nut off the bottom of the fan bypass valve and see what's up in there? Does it come open on both ends? Trying to get it off now...

Wish I could help, but sounds like yours is different than mine. Mine was working so I did not mess with it, other than cleaning it up outside. Sound like you are getting close to getting things back together which is good.

I was going to replace the whole hydraulic reservoir and relocate it behind the tag axle to free up more space to get to the engine. Just did not have time before WOG to do the extra work of figuring things out. I am still not past getting rid of that round reservoir and going with a square one behind the tag. I was going to just get a spin on external filter to replace the internal filters in the reservoir, since its only really filtering for the power steering on mine.

Andy,do you have the air piloted fan control valve?
I have seen the air control part go bad and pump air into the hydraulic system and blow seals.

Jeff - I like your idea, my res has seen better days.

Randy - I don't have the air piloted. Pix shortly, but it's plain old 12v. The thing that moves inside was sticking, the orings were very shot.
