Yes any small leak can cause a pressure drop and yes that leak can have bubbles in it as it has just dropped pressure.

Now try hooking a cylinder up and see if it works. ;)

How did you go with the aux connectors? Any further news or progress?

I have the identical tractor to you :) fel and rops and all, yours is just mint though. It's so nice to know I'm not the only one left in the world with this grey type.

Kinda looks like it got dropped out a plane, without a chute...:D:D
Lol yes i see what you mean about the damage to the front... top?? how?

anyway i was just trawling the net for details for pics of the tiller i have and i saw that this model tiller had a hydraulic ram... then looked over at the tractor and saw it was a 1600. Then that reminded me of this post Boned as its using the connectors for a ram from the same plugs as ours. Thought it may be of use to you to see that it can be of use in a tipper ram situation if you hadnt gotten a tester on it yet to save you the trouble of testing it.

I just now jumped on my 1600 and it seems i can feel the lines separately pressurise when I push/pull on the lever as well. Keen on doing the same tipper trailer idea as well one day now i know how easy its gonna be.

Interesting thread as I have similar issues trying to fit auxiliary hydraulics to the rear of my old L245. I have the same proem in that I know no think about hydraulics so have been struggling to get anywhere.
My main problem is not having any existing pipes or connectors to plug into etc. I have been to my nearest hydraulics supplier with photos of various bits connected to the tractors hydraulics so was impressed when the man came back to me with three couplings that should connect together then screw into the valve under the seat where the fast/slow screw/valve is. He said all I needed to do was screw the connector into where there's a blanking plug/bolt (nice & simple) only the connector thread was wrong size so haven't been able to try if this the correct place I should be tapping into the tractor.
Woodman sent me a PDF copy of a manual but not understanding hydraulics & with the pictures being of poor quality (not wolf mans fault) I'm still no nearer getting this sorted. Reading this thread has given me the insentive to have anouther go at getting it sorted as I desperately need to get auxiliary hydraulics to power various implements before the spring gets here & everything starts growing & needs cutting etc. I've benn told by someone on here I need to get some sort of adaptor plate that fits on the hydraulic valve or what ever it's called on left side of transmition housing / rear axle but have been unable to locate anything even similar. Does this part have a name I can put into google ?? Does anyone know where would supply this part?? Has anyone done this to there L245 or similar ?? Any help or tips welcomed as I have no idea what to do at the moment.
Thanks & hope someone can help me. Stu.

Stu, there is a thread on that plate your asking about. I don't remember who was asking, or what tractor he had.

I have an L305 with that box on it and I uploaded some pictures of it for him. Wolfman, I'm pretty sure gave the Kubota part number for it.

If you can't find it, let me know by PM and I'll do some looking.

Ok,

I also have the same tractor B1600DT with the same fittings.

If I read this correctly, I should get a 1/8 bsp adapter to whatever fits the standard european hydraulic connectors to get this used ?
