Hello and thank you for helping out. I'm not sure what info is relevant, so I'll include all I can think of regarding a lift problem I'm having with an 8N that I just bought. The arms raise and lower fine without an implement attached. With one attached though, they don't raise at all or only slightly at the end of the touch control range. Adjusting the plate on the side of the tractor below the seat made only a slight difference. The fluid was milky and has been changed using the 90W mineral type. The new fluid shows a slight sign of water and some air bubbles. This improved while the tractor sat for a few days. There is a small, steady, drip from the cylinder above. Changing the fluid didn't make a difference in performance. I removed the bolt holding the two halves of the quadrant together so the touch lever could be moved past the normal range. If the lever is moved an inch or so past the bracket, the implement will raise and hold while I stand on it. It seems it may be a worn linkage or part causing this. Is there some other testing I can do to determine the cause? Thank you!
