New to the site, I have a 1975 JD 401-C Backhoe and I am experancing problems with the hydraulics,mainly the stearing and the loader. Some times I get a clattering noise upfront. and then the loader bucket will shutter or the steering wheel will shake and sorta freeze up.
Checked the hyd oil level at the cap on the right side kinda under the seat,and all is showing full. is the pump up front getting ready to go out ? or needs rebuilt? adjusted?
anyone have a clue?
My local JD dealer says that they are not a construction dealer and cant help.
