Is the filter you are refering to the one in the reservoir? Or is
there another one? The plastic filter in the reservoir has a couple of
vertical slits along its length which seem to defeat the purpose. I couldn't
figure out how this could possibly trap anything reliably.
Also, how do you flush the system? When I replaced the pressure accumulator,
I drained the reservoir and filled it with new fluid. Is there a procedure
for getting all the old fluid out of the rack and the pump?
