Hydraulics

Brad Hobbs The hydraulics on my 8n don't want to work when the temperature gets below 30. Checked the fluid and it is a milky color. It this an indication of moisture getting in the system? Any suggestions?
Thanks

Bob G Moisture in system? sure sounds like it. Time to drain and flush. some use the lighter ford spec fluid instead of the 90 wt gear oil.
mark sr For what it's worth, the hydraulics on my NAA have to warm up before they will work when it's that cold. Once warm they work like normal.

I agree with Bob it sounds like there is moisture in your system .... if there's enough water it could be freezing and blocking the fluid flow.
