Do you have to bleed the hydraulics of the mechanical kind after you replace a hose or have it open for other reasons?If so,how and where do you bleed them?

You should not have to bleed the system. You will have to make sure the hydraulic reservior topped off so the pump will not run without oil. After installing the hose, start the engine and run it slow at first. Then cycle the valves in the hydraulic system to push the air out of the system. Once that is done, you should be able to go back to normal operation.
