Question about H.D. Hudson 2g Yard N Garden Sprayer

1 Answer

Immediate pressure loss

I pump to full pressure and it holds. Immediately after operating the spray lever pressure is completely lost via air (no fluid) passage through the spray nozzle. Pressure is lost in less than two seconds. All connections are tight and appear to be sealed.

    have you used this before and it worked? I am just trying to help I do not expect anything in return, but it should have a peice plastic pipe inside the bottle that runds from the hose to the bottom of it, If it is leaking where it connects, or if it is missing that is what would happen. Hope this helps you out, If not God bless you and good luck :)

Your dip tube inside the tank has come loose or has a leak near the top. instead of fluid being pushed up the dip tube into the wand hose the air in the tank is just escaping. You will have to remove the wand hose and figure out where the leak is and fix the dip tube.

Husqvarna 4623 zero turn mower will not move

Maintanance - How to purge Hydraulic drive system Published 01/13/2010 11:56 AM ' Updated 06/02/2015 02:52 PM
How do I purge the hydraulic system?
Hydrostatic transmissions use oil, under pressure, to provide movement for the tractor. The fluid is pressurized with a pump inside the transmission. If any air is in the fluid, the pump will try to pressurize air. This condition is known as cavitation, and is detrimental to the pump since it allows the pump top operate dry. When the pump cavitates it is not pressurizing any fluid, so the transmission is not able to provide the movement needed.
If your mower is new, or has been stored for a long period (longer than 2 months) the transmission needs to be purged before use. Also, if you experience loss of drive, or slower response, then the transmission should be purged first.
The following procedure will remove trapped air inside the transmission(s).
Step 1- Place the rear of the mower safely onto jackstands on a level surface with engine off and parking brake set.

Step 2- Disengage transmission by placing freewheel control, located at the back of the frame, in the freewheeling position.

2a- Mowers with seperate pumps and wheel motors the freewheel is activated by turnign the bypass valves, one on each pump, two full turns.
The oil resevoir needs to be filled to the specifications listed in the owners manual before starting the purge procedure.
Step 3- Sitting in the operators seat(riders), start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to slow position. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.
Step 4-Move motion control levers to full forward position and hold for five (5) seconds. Move levers to full reverse position and hold for five (5) seconds. Repeat this procedure three (3) times.

NOTE: During this procedure there may be some movement of the drive wheels, but they are not under load. The air is being removed from hydraulic drive system.

Step 5-Move motion control levers to neutral (N) position. Shutoff engine and set parking brake. Check and add oil as needed for units with an oil resevoir.

Step 6-Engage transmission by placing freewheel control into driving position, or by closing the bypass valves on the pumps.
Step 7-Sitting in the operators seat, start engine. After the engine is running, move throttle control to full speed. With motion control levers in neutral (N) position, slowly disengage clutch/brake pedal.

Step 8-Slowly move motion control levers forward, after the tractor moves approximately five (5) feet, slowly move motion control levers to reverse position.
After the mower moves approximately five (5) feet return the motion control levers to the neutral (N) position. Repeat this procedure with the motion control levers three (3) times.

Step 9-Your mower is now purged and now ready for normal operation.For further information or assistance, we recommend contacting your lo

I have a 1997 Ford Escort, and it will start but immediately cut off. You can hear the fuel pump turn on when you start it. What could be the problem?

Hello awlashun,

Try spraying starting fluid into the air box if it starts it's a good possibility that the fuel pump is bad.

If you have a fuel pressure gauge check the pressure it should be 35-45 psi.

Sprayer drips instead of spraying

Pressure test: pump it several times then open the cylinder (like you were going to pour in more solution): was there a noticeable pressure release? If not, then your problem is in the pump assembly. Examine the end (the end which goes into the tank) flapper valve. While the pump is out of the tank, pump it a few times. Do you see/hear the flapper move with inflowing air? If not, herein lies your problem. Put a few drops of oil down the assembly where the pump slides up/down. Work the pump a few times. If this does not solve the problem, try to dissamble the pump mechanism and MAYBE you will be able to replace faulty intern parts/gasket. If you DO have internal pressure in the tank, yet no spraying action: disassemble all parts coming after the pump. Hose, off/on switch/lever, spray tip. Yes, it will completely disassemble. Inspect/clean everything/blow out the spray tip or use a thin needle to clean the tip. While you have everything apart, use "silicon plumbers' grease" and generously lube all of the o-rings: this will afford a very good seal and prevent pressure loss. You can buy the plumbers' grease at the big box stores or plumbing supply places. Good luck.

Won't hold air & pump up/

I loss pressure, read the manual, took the slide out and saw that the o-ring was crimped out of shape, thus the loss of seal and no pressure! Popped it back to position and it spray is now powerful as day 1...patience is rewarded!

GX 08 spray gun problem

drain your system of pressure. remove your air cap and nozzle from the gun. slowly increase fluid pressure till it comes out of gun. this will clean out debri from gun. reduce pressure so you don't wast anymore fluid.
clean nozzle properly / completely
clean aircap. properly / completely
inspect needle tip for abnormal wear.
if cleaned properly you will find your gun works much better.

Crosman 766 wont hold air areadly oiled the seal

Try raising the pump lever and douse the inside with Barricade or Remington spray oil, then slowly pump it halfway or until you hear the air loss, do this several times or "rinse and repeat" until it keeps it's seal. Another good idea is to do this every couple months, leak or not!

Loss of braking ability

What most likely happened is when the strut was replaced the brake line/hose was open to be removed from strut. when ever the brake lines are open the entire braking system needs to be bleed. This can be done by pumping brake pedal and holding in the down position and with a 10mm wrench opening int brake caliper bleeder screws and letting the air out of the system. Repeat this until the only a stream of pure brake fluid is seen coming out of caliper. Make sure to keep brake reservoir full at all time. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA

2000 chevy silverado ran out of gas completely. we put in 5 gallons but the truck will not start. is there a reset button?

Can you hear the fuel pump run when you initially turn the key to on, I think they only run for about 5 seconds if the engine doesn't start immediately.
I think you have a fuel line full of air, but there is the chance you may have damaged the pump, because these are cooled by the fuel running thru them.

Don't know how deep you want to get, but there is a "shrader valve" on the fuel rail on the front right side (looks like a tire valve stem cap). Should be under the VORTEC shroud. You could hold this open, (like letting air out of a tire) while someone turned your ignition to on until fuel comes out. Once you see fuel, cranking it normally should be able to start the truck after one or two tries.
That should bleed the air out of the line quickly. Be very careful as you are dealing with flammible gasoline. Hold a rag over it so you don't get sprayed.
A fire extinguisher nearby would not hurt.
