1971 Massey 165

Larry Rhoads Found Hydralic crankcase at PTO full of sludge. It was suggested that I fill the case with 5 gallons of Diesel fuel and run at full speed for about 3 miles, then drain and repeat until fuel looks clean when drained. Is this a goood idea?
Alan Lewis It will work BUT . Do not put the hydraulic system into constant pumping (relief valve blowing off)this will vaporise the diesel and it may go bang.Dont drive it leave it stand the transmisssion swirl should mix it up but you may have to do this several times.
It might not clean the hydraulic pump filter adequatly.
Is it water? or years of over greasing the hydraulic cross shaft.
