Hurth 630A

My Hurth 630a gearbox filled with sea water and lost all pressure whilst under load. I have stripped it down and reassembled. now, when started it builds pressure (21 bar) and then, with a wooshing noise, it loses pressure completely (in neutral) after about 30 sec of running. i have changed the control block and the syptoms are still the same.
Anyone have any ideas?

I didn’t see anything helpful, but here’s an Owner’s Manual. Could it be a plugged filtre?
