    Hey guys,

    I recently flushed all the fluids out of a 1999 Walker, including the hydro oil. If you're familiar with Walkers, they have two cups on each hyrdo unit. I've used the machine approx 2 hours since the oil has been changed in the hydro motors. The oil in one motor is clear and clean, the way it should be after two hours of use. The other motor's oil is dark, not as dark as motor oil, but close. The best comparison would be like a 'tea' color. Like the color of a cup of tea, or bottle of dark iced tea.

    What could this mean? Should i drain the oil again in the motor?
