    When I disconnect wheel motor for replacement, do I need to bleed lines before running again. I'm going to assume that hydro fluid will leak out from lines and most of the fluid will be lost. If they do need bleeding how do you do it....
    I'm gunna give it a try over the next few weeks. Going to re-tighten everything and fill hydrolic fluid. See how much it leaks and try to pin point the source of the leak before replacing wheel motor.

    Any advice would be help full...thanks

    Yes, I am pretty sure you would have too. Just follow the directions in the owners manual. I have done it once.
