I think Dave is right. As hydraolic fluid get hot it well expand. (Overflowing tank if its too full)

I hope its this simple.:)

I am very jealous of that haul. Nice score. Everything looks to be in great original condition. The loader looks awesome on the '68 Super 12.

:thanku:thx everyone, I did fill it up. when it was on the ss15 and never ran it long enough to get it hot. the ss15 vary low comp. smokes bad and just has no power. I got this super 12 it was like new but owner said the ignition was bad and had it all in a box. i bought with the plow and trailer gave him 500.00cash. put it all back together yea no spark. got a new spark plug fired right up.:bananapow clean the carb, and it been running great for 2-mouth.so I put a add on cl. wanted sears tractor attachment.. I got a call man said I got one of those tractor with a loader and a few attachment. long story short we agree 1000.00 cash takes all got ss15. loader, rotto tiller, cannon, v-plow and home made brush bucket. now the super 12 was bought new and was kept inside all its life. it has the original sears ties on it and no crack.:thThumbsU thx's for the help everyone I plan to use it all day tomorrow so I guess it will stop leaking when oil level get right ?

Should do. How much oil does the reservoir hold? You should fill it with all cylinders fully retracted and leave at least 10% of the volume for expansion.

Ummm. There are 12 pins in that loader. If it's squeaking, that's where to look. Hydraulic systems are well lubed and rarely squeak unless failure is imminent.

Use it for an hour or so. The rust will wear off and it will quit squeaking. If it doesn't, a squirt of oil on each of the 12 pins will cure it.

If the oil level is too low, the cylinders will not move smoothly and the pump will get noisy until it can pull in some more oil.

Measure the the post length, width, and height. Subtract 1/4" from each dimension, calculate the volume in cu-in, and divide by 231. The answer is the theoretical number of gallons in the post. Subtract 10% from that and the result is approximately how much oil it should have in it with the cylinders retracted.

Bleed air by exercising the cylinders. A minimum of 2 full stroke cycles, out and in, will purge most of the air. Any air that is left will get purged with a few minutes of use. I usually cycle my system 3 or 4 times after a cylinder or hose change before putting it to work, but I work can mine a lot harder with my heavier GT than you can work yours.
