Leak, leak, leak....

My clark c500 leaks every fluid I put in 'er. I let the Hydraulic fliud go too long, and now the mast won't go down past 6.5 feet. I refilled the reservoir, to no avail. How do I "bleed" it? If...that's what I need to do...

id call a forklift shop and have it fixed since thats a very dangerous repair if it lets go while your foolin with it

also check to see if the load backrest is hanging up on the top of the mast (if its bent)

sounds to me like you have a mechanical problem,you dont add fluid to bring it down,by the way,if your over full it will come out of the breather cap,does it clunk when you get to the lowered point? check for binding,mike
