John Deere MT Hydraulics

Larry Gents,
I've recently purchased a 1952 MT but the hydraulics don't work. I suspect the first thing to check is the fluid level but I don't know where to do that. Any advice would be appreciated

Bob G Hyd tank should be just in front of your tight foot. Don't think it has a dipstick just fill with hyd fluid (10 wt hyd oil)
Monte Martin Between your legs behind the powertrol is a cap this is where you put the hydraulic fluid in and behind the seat is a pitcock open it and when oil starts running out your hydraulic fluid is full.
Monte Martin Has anyone ever installed a Hydraulic control valve on a MT? I am in process of doing this but haven't quite accomplished it yet. I Teed off pressure line to control valve, I have oil at valve but not pressure. Am looking for advise if someone has accomplished this.
