How to add brake fluid international 574
It has hydraulic brakes, you will have to bleed the brakes. There is a bleeder screw on top of each rear axle, and it looks like a grease zerk.
This procedure will require a clean bucket and 1/4, 3/8 or 5/16 inch clear tubing that will fit over bleeder screw nipple.
To bleed the brakes run the tractor until the Hytran hydraulic fluid reaches operating temperature.
Run engine at fast idle 1400-1600 RPM, block rear wheels.
With tubing connected to nipple on bleed screw and other end in clean bucket, loosen bleed screw and let hydraulic fluid drain until you are air bubble free, then close bleed screw. Repeat on other brake. Do not pump brakes while bleeding.
Check and if needed, Top off the hydraulic fluid with clean fluid, make sure transmission fluid level is full or over full. Also check for leaks at the bottom of dash and along the top of transmission cover. The brake lines run from under battery box along the top of transmission and then go to the rear axles.
You might have to repeat the bleeding process to get all the air out of the lines, if the bleeding works but only lasts a few days then it probably has leaking seals in brake pistons.
