convertible pump/motor assembly

hi

i have a 94 olds cutlass supreme convertible.

the top cylinders broke and the top won't raise and lower. i have ordered new cylinders and i think i can put them in (i took out the old ones), but i don't know how to put hydraulic fluid in the pump motor.

does anyone have experience with this can tell me how to do it?

thanks

Best bet to guide you is a $25 Alldata.com subscription or a factory OEM manual if autolibrary.org below turns up nothing.

Robert.... Look the pump over real good. If you see a rubber plug carefully remove it and check that before adding fluid. Most times this is how it is done. Be sure to put the CORRECT fluid when you are ready to do so.

Some also have screw plug that requires a hex driver to remove.

thanks for the info but i still have the question: how do i add the fluid??

do i remove the pump assembly and fill it by hand or do i put one of the lines in a can a fluid and push the electric button and fill it that way?

any assistance is appreciated.

the service manual says nothing.

alldata i have not joined so they haven't told me anything.

cyberpro shows a diagram of a pump that i don't have so it doesn't help all that much.

that is why i am trying to see if anyone has ever dealt with this personally and they can tell me but i do appreciate the links to other info as well.

The GM Fisher Body and Chassis manual say nothing? I don't think so...........................

Those books are very detailed . Which service manual are you using?

Also, you have to purchase a $25.00 Alldata.com subscription to get the information, the site is not free.

Worth every penny as is the service manual! .

the manual i am using is not original to the vehicle. i bought it from autozone and it is based on a tear-down, rebuild.

do you know how to get an original?

and also the question still applies, does anyone have any direct experience with this model or similar?

thanks for the info

Helminc.com for a new original GM manual.

Dan Bower ([email protected]), Dan Klein [email protected] or Dave Maserik on Ebay (Seller Davesbooks).

I have dealt with all three guys and all three have been more than fair and reasonable.
