Enough that the filter was pretty much clogged up and as for the last change? Good question, I'm thinking with 1300 hrs it probably never had a change. More than likely the maintenance I'm doing now is the most it's ever had.Hydraulics as a general rule are not known for making fine metal shaving unless you have something failing. How much metal did you have? Just some or a LOT? How many hours since the last change?
Other than this how you gettin along?
Sounds like Parts Man has the answer to your metal since it is a common sump. I would take the advise and use a magnet check to see if it is aluminum or not just to comfort the mind.Enough that the filter was pretty much clogged up and as for the last change?

I'm doing not too bad aside from waking up 3,4 or 5 times a night with major pain in my shoulder, feels like little green men attempting to tear it out of the joint. Got a few weird things I figure have to do with nerve problems to talk to my doc about when I get back from vacation. Victoria to Port Angeles and beyond on Tues morn. Not going to take a chance of ruining my first real vacation with the wife in about 7 years. It's actually kind of our honeymoon so to speak. But never mind me, how you getting along? Things getting a little better. If your smarter than me you'll heal up just fine.
And Parts Man. Thanks for that, makes me feel a little better.
Sad to say we all know em', know I do, the ones that think nothing about servicing and maintaining their tractors. I guess they figure it ain't the same as running down the road at high speed so they don't need the care, just run it till it drops then gripe that it broke down. :fing20: I would bet GOOD money the neighbor across the road has the same oil in his Massey, plus what he has had to add to top it off, that came in it.as far as I know.. it had the original oil and filters on it when i worked on it for him that day... :hide:
