  • hyd lift
  • 1948 8n,just started it up, runs good. Sumps cleaned,flushed with diesel, new hyd oil.
    I raised the touch control lever & the lift arms went all the way up "smoothly". Lowered the touch control lever & the lift arms did not move, with lots of pressure on them. I believe I have a major problem. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.Thanks

  • You don't have to drop or drain to repair the valve.

  • Thanks Rustyal, I will remove the valve without dropping the pump.
