@953 nut , @WVHillbilly520H , @ebinmaine , @squonk, and anybody else with a hydro...

Please take a look at these 2 videos...tell me what you think.

In one video you can hear a squeal, and the other sounds a little quieter.

The quieter video is after I had ran the hydraulic cylinder through a few cycles.

Does these noises seem normal...air needs to work its way out ?

Guess maybe that whine is normal when the cylinder reaches the end of its stroke ?

 

Sounds just like my 2 unmolested ones.

Just the pressure relief valve in your valve body doing its job.         :handgestures-thumbupleft:

Thanks for the reassurance. It made the same noise(only louder) before I went through the hydraulic system.

I guess it was fussing at me because that little (8/32nds) screw and washer that holds the retainer cap was missing.

One more thing...

I will now watch and check for any leaks over the next few weeks. I have heard that I may get a little seepage at the swivels on the flexible hydraulic lines. (I replaced the flexible lines)Have any of you had this occur ? ( I don't want seepage if I don't have to have seepage )

Sounds normal to me, you are just maxing out the pressure when the cylinder hits the stops.  Hopefully you have the screw under the cap set correctly.

Thanks @lynnmor , I didn't really mess with that screw...just lightly turned it with my fingers a smidge to see if it moved, then put it back where it was. Should be okay. I was surfing YouTube yesterday and seen a young man with a Wheel Horse that wouldn't lift his rototiller on the back.

He just grabbed a 7/32nds allen wrench and cranked it in 2 turns. Hopefully he doesn't end up wrecking his transmission.

I was under the impression that the screw/ pressure had to be adjusted with the use of gauges (if I understand the Eaton manual correctly).

But his tractor did lift the tiller after his "adjustment"... guess time will tell as far as possible transmission damage...

@lynnmor I didn't tag you in the post with the videos because you had mentioned something about videos buffering on your phone or computer/ maybe weak signal ?????? And they're aggravating...

Anyways, I'm glad you watched and gave your thoughts... I am getting well acquainted with my 520H.

At home I use a laptop 95% of the time, it is only when I am away that I run into problems with the phone.  Currently I have the "cellular update failed" problem once again.  It is just Apples way of jamming the blasted thing to sell a new one.  Yes, I followed all their nonsense advice before and there is no real way to make it work over time, its pay up or shut up.

They make the same noise in the UK too!

 

From your videos, you are making a beautiful job of your rebuild.

 

I like your double arm rock shaft, that would seem to be an excellent development, I'm now thinking about stripping mine down and welding a second arm on. It's always a good idea to support any sort of trunnion or pin under twisting tension on both sides so that it's a straight pull. (I built a kit car many years ago which ate clutch cables until I realised why...). I think the same goes for the down pressure bar. With the double arm rock shaft, a single down pressure member would be fine provided the pin through the blade is supported both sides, either with a fork on the bar or a double arm on the blade. Alternatively a single arm rock shaft and a double down pressure bar bolted through top and bottom would also work.

 

A down pressure bar never occurred to me for my blade, but I think it is an excellent idea. We buy a lot of road chippings for the stable yard and pushing them around with my C175 was no easy task...I am sure a down pressure bar would have made a major difference.

 

Now have a JCB 3cx for that job so it' no longer much of an issue!

Thanks @Damien Walker...the more I do, the more I want to do. I am going to leave the original paint as much as possible. The parts in red that need paint I am doing on Rustoleum Regal Red.

I am actually surprised at how good of shape it is in. It was sitting outside when I bought it in 2017. Put it in the storage building until about Oct. 2020.

Since then I have replaced carb, new coil, fuel filter, oil, oil filter, plugs, hydraulic oil, hydraulic filter, fuel line, fuel pump, fuel pet cock, fuse block, hour meter, new battery, new battery box,  rear tire, two front tires, front wheel bearings and seals, powder coated all 4 rims and hub caps, adjusted valves, painted muffler after patching 2 holes, rebuilt hydraulic control valve and hydraulic cylinder, rewired charging circuit, rewired ignition circuit, cleaned all wire terminals and applied dielectric grease, painted foot rests and redone the foot tread pads, all gauge light bulbs, painted front grille Rustoleum Satin Black, new bushings on motion lever and hydraulic lever shafts, resealed intake manifold...

Man talk about getting off topic...you said " beautiful job", and off I went...

Sorry guys...
