    The other day, I was getting pretty substaintial pump chattering (sounded like the pump was cavitating or there was air in the system) on the last lawn of the day.

    That night I unscrewed the hydro tank cap and looked to see what the oil level was. I looked inside and all I see is a screen inside. So I grab my owners manual (what a disappointment by the way) to see what the level is supposed to be. They say: "Fluid level should be 1" from top of reservoir"

    Is that 1" from the bottom of the screen?

    Or 1" from the top lip where the cap seals?

    Mine, like I said is just barely getting the bottom of the screen wet.

    Is that level 1" too high, or 1" too low?

    The fluid should just be at the bottom of the screen, this is normal.
