Ford 1720 hydraulic bleeding

1720 owner I changed hydraulic/transmission oil and filter on my 1720 (1993...900 hrs) I bought it a year or so ago...not sure when it was done last.

I have 2 problems....I have lots of air in the system (front loader was completely empty of fluid) nothing is working...and getting a white foamy substance when I do bleed the air. (almost like water in the oil)

What is the best way to bleed the air? (Ny brother suggests leaving a fitting open and letting it self bleed???)

What is the white substance...water?

What did I do wrong...(I did not fill the filter with all these problems from that)

1720 owner Fixed it...

Yes...the White stuff was water in the oil. don't have to fill the filter

Problem??...for 1720 model... 1993 was a split year production (at July 31/93)

Hydraulic Filters for the post August models don't match the pre July models. (The filters fit...and tighten down...but the O rings don't match)
