4 Questions About An Hb112 Hydro
Posted October 30, 2012 - 03:45 PM
Question 1: Can I safely add any of the many types of Dexron (I thru IV)?
Question 2: Am I better off draining the system, changing the filter and filling with Dexron VI?
Question 3: Can I use a WIX51467 or Napa 1467 filter?
Question 4: I know the hoses are 1/2" I.D. & 3/4" O.D. but do I need to go with hydraulic hosing or is there an simpler alternative?

Thank you 1031d. I'd all but given up hope of a reply. I topped up the reservoir with Dexron 4 in order to find the leak. Not a happy time. It seems to be leaking from the pump pivot O Rings (top of the unit where the forward/reverse speed lever connects), and from the motor shaft seal. You don't happen to have working part numbers for a seal replacement kit?
I used the WIX filter. I got new hoses from my auto parts store as automotive transmission cooler hose. When I serviced my 3212H last I drained, flushed with clean oil, drained and refilled with a new filter using Dextron 4. I know that in cars #2 and #4 don't always agree and foam and form sludge.
