    First make sure the pump is turning in the right direction.
    Make sure the RPM's are where they should be.
    I used a pump off of a dump truck and the RPM's where OK.
    If you are using a two stage pump the speed will need to be much faster.

    This sounds dumb but make sure you have enough hydro fluid in the system. And to check if it's pumping crack a line on your cylinder.
