    I have a friend with a Dingo that got water in the hydraulic tank. It uses 15W40 oil. We changed the oil and fixed the seal where the water got in, but I was wondering how many times he should change it again to flush out the lines and pistons. It holds about ten gallons, so finding the balance between saving the pump and spending $200 per oil change would be ideal.

    I would change it once again if the seal fix holds.

    If you can: drain it out into metal container, no lid. Use drum heater or something (no open flames is best-duh) and Heat to 195 and the water will instantly separate from the oil. Pump off the oil from a few inches above the bottom to not get the water.

    You'll waste almost no oil and be good to go.
