was wondering where the hydro level should be in the hydro tank, if i look inside the opening there is some sort of ring extending downward with 2 small holes drilled in it.........thanks

In the center between the two holes is the correct level, their tanks pull oil from the top so you fill to the bottom hole and leave the top hole(vent) exposed. I guess the idea was so they did not pull heavy sediment through the system.

Mowermedic77 is right. The other reason for the top draw is in case of a leak. Bottom mounted fittings could drain the reservoir w/o you knowing and kill lawns (depending what fluid is being used). -same reason for top draw fuel tanks that many people use.
