Been there done that. Put some hydraulic fluid in a plastic squeeze bottle with a flip top. BINGO. I had the CHB that you see for 25 years.

Depends on what fluid reservoir you have. Usually just unscrew the top of the reservoir, top the fluid up to the fill mark (no higher). Close the reservoir, pop a bycycle pump on to the threaded nipple on top of the reservoir and pump the pressure to the recommended PSI - found on the reservoir. This is usually somewhere between 20-30 PSI.
