Project Steps

Things to know about working with hydraulics:

Thread tape is necessary between each connection unless otherwise stated.

Always wrap thread tape clockwise when facing the threaded portion.

Always keep the end caps on hoses and fittings until you need to take them off. They need to stay protected inside.

Attach all of the fittings and the 2 hoses to the Tee, except the small swivel.

Tighten the tee assembly into the correct port (see the photo)

Install the swivel and tighten the small hose to it.

The swivel doesn’t need thread tape.

Put the other 36″ hose into the remaining port on the motor.
