I just purchased a 1958 ford 821. I have all the manuals but they dont tell me how to prime the piston type hydraulic pump, only the vane type. Could someone explain how to prime it ? Thank You...Ben

There is a pipe type plug on the top of the pump. You simply pour some hyd oil in that hole to prime the pump

Hope you are having a good experience with your "new" Ford. What do you plan to use it for? If you can, post a photo. -Will

Thank you Old for the info, I'm going to prime the pump this morning and hope the 3 point hitch will work. Will I plan on using the ford for plow days and just a toy to play with, I also plan on getting a back blade to push snow. I'll try to post pictures later...Ben

Looks pretty good. I love the x01 Fords. Looks like you put in a new starter and converted to 12V. That definitely helps cold starting. Let us know how the pump priming turns out. -Will

Additionally, if you have bubbles in the fluid, hiccuping or slow lifting sort of thing, remove that plug and spin the engine over till solid fluid comes out.....no bubbles.
