Frank, it may be low on fluid or you may have water in the system freezing up in the colder temperatures. I would recommend a drain, flush and re-fill with fresh hydraulic fluid such as hy-tran or similar.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Frank - Also, if you are looking for the "tank", I think you'll find that the hyg's use the transmission for the reserve. Plug should be on rear of transmission, 3/8" drive. Most likely you have water in there.

Frank - you may also want to verify your serial number. 185's were only produced from 74 thru 76 so a 57 - 185 lo-boy is not possible.

If it is indeed a number series lo-boy, the oil reservoir is the tranny / differential housing.
