I've found many answers on this forum, but am now stuck.

I have a 1982 Farmall 284. During the arctic cold this winter my hydraulic pump cracked. I had it fixed and reinstalled it.

I drained almost 5 gallons of milky oil from the transmission and filled it with HyTran. It says it should take 3.4 gallons but even after I filled it with 5 gallons there is no oil making it to the hydraulc filter or pump. I have no power to my hydraulic system.

Does this thing actually take more than 5 gallons?

More than five gallons? Probably not. I'm thinking the newly repaired pump isn't picking up it's prime more than likely. Have you tried
loosening the output line at the pump, backing it off a few turns and starting it up for a few seconds? Sometimes that needs to be done to let
the pump vent and prime. If that doesn't work you could try removing one (or both) fittings from the pump and squirting some oil into the pump ports
as far as you can get it to help make sure the gears are wet. Sometime that helps. Also give the suction line hose connectors another look and
maybe a few more turns on the hose clamps.

Thank you. I'll try that.

Does the pup "pull" fluid in? I only ask because with the tractor runnin I can remove the hydraulic filter and it doesn't even drip.

Oil level is below pump level in most all cases with engine mounted pumps, so removing the filter with engine running is counterproductive.
The object is to reduce if not eliminate suction leaks, not introduce them. No drip here indicates the pump hasn't pulled any oil up yet.
Dry gears don't always produce much vacuum.

Appreciate the feedback. I took the inlet connection off and while tractor is running, the pump gears are spinning. I filled the pump cavity with Hy Tran, reconnected everything and no change. No suction. Theres not much to the pump but I can take apart and see if something is wrong in there still.
