Hydraulic Jacks

If you put too much fluid in the Hyd. Jack reservoir, will that cause a problem? I put some ATF in the "tank' but got it a little too full--do I need to take some out or will it be O.K. as is?
Thanks

Should be fine as long as you filled it up with the jacks up I would probably extend and retract the jacks at least once with the cap loose or off. That would expell any excessive ATF.

Fluid should only be added when jacks are fully retracted. This is when the reservoir is full.

Personally I would take some out - I would not risk the situation where the reservoir can not hold all the extra fluid. A way to do this could be to take out the screw that covers the "fluid pilot hole" at the end of the tank. Again, this will only drain out when the jacks are fully retracted.

On mine, the fluid has to be at the top or I get the, Beeb-beeb alarm, that my jacks are down. You could always take the Wife's turkey baster and remove some fluid.
