TEST OR INSPECTION
5. HYDRAULIC SYSTEM OIL TOO HOT (Cont).
Check circuit relief valves pressure setting (page 3-624).
a. If pressure setting is not 2550 to 2950 psi, adjust (page
b. If pressure setting is 2550 to 2950 psi, perform flowmeter test
(page 3-627). If flowmeter tests are not acceptable, and problem
was in a loader circuit, refer to Malfunction 1 or 2 (page
2-123). If problem was in loader section of hydraulic pump,
replace hydraulic pump (page 3-612).
