The hydraulic hose from the pump to the PTO on my new old Ingersoll 7020 just developed a major pin hole leak. Question is, do I have to drain the whole system in order to replace the hose or is there a way to just relieve the pressure and remove the hose without everything draining out all over the place? Thanks, Ed

Based on where it is in the system, you'll end up draining everything.

Water and oil seek the lowest spot, because the oil tank is the highest point the oil always wants to drain down hill. If you have plugs for where the hose connects you can stop the flow. But any open connection will leak, dribble, etc

The none running pump will not stop 100,% of the oil it will dribble
