    Going to drain the hydraulic tank and change out a couple of hoses and filters. What is the process for bleeding air out?

    No special procedure that I'm aware of.

    For all Takeuchi machines, Use 41 mm wrench ( I have a 41 mm striking wrench, a long huge 41mm open wrench and a 41 mm socket) to add more hydraulic fluid. Let idle for ten min to bleed, then extend all hydraulic cylinders.

    I bent a 24" breaker bar with a iron pipe over it, trying to get the 41mm fill cap off. Went and got a heavy duty 1/2" impact gun. Hopefully that will work.

    Gave up on the top cap.! No way its coming off. I've tried a 41mm 6 point socket and 4' breaker bar, 1200lb impact gun, heat, etc.... Won't even budge. I guess I'll just fill it through the breather. IT'S NOT COMING OFF!

    C'mon...I've been there.
    1-5/8" box wrench with another on the open side or 3/4" ratchet with 4' cheater. It's the jolt that breaks them free.

    Did someone prank you? It shouldn't be that hard.

    Weird. Do you see any gap between the bolt and round tank part?

    I guess i could try a impact chisel, but then the top of the cap nut would be FUBAR! I think I’m spending to much effort on it and should just take the breather off to fill it… HAHA

    Assuming the factory didn't install a welded plug, I'd try heating the round boss that the bolt threads into, and then hit it with an impact or breaker bar.
