Ok this morning i switched the lines over to the other spools.

I have the same identical problem.

I still cant picture how a bad packing on the piston would allow the cylinder to still have down pressure ,seems it would bypass in both direction.

Now to see if theres a relief valve at the lift end of each cylinder.

My other thought is what if a hose to one of the cylinders was internally restricting oil.

Would the other cylinder still try to lift the loader or would it be mechanically

I know the hose to the lift side of the right cylinder is only a few years old but the other is probably original or at most pretty old.

I cant see a valve any where on the lift side unless it built inside the cylinders somehow

I suppose that if one line were plugged, the other would try to lift, but it would face some suction pressure as the other cylinder would be creating a vacuum where fluid (or air from the rod packing) were not available. Here are my latest thoughts:
1. Try very hard to listen for any fluid movement or even a twitch in the hoses at the cylinders when you try to lift. Maybe crack a hose at the cylinder on the pressure side for lift. I think you will get something.
2. The pressure may not be enough to lift, even though you can get downpressure. Your main pressure relief valve is presumably a pilot operated relief, and there is a procedure for adjusting that. I made a tool for mine and adjusted it up. If you don't have a diagram, I could send you the page from my IH TD340 hydraulics manual, probably slightly newer than your machine.
3. There could be a problem with a check valve in the valve body, either blocking flow or somehow relieving pressure through another circuit.
4. The pump could be too weak to lift.

Ill do some further testing.

I am going to drill and tap a pipe plug for a gauge and pressure test the original lift port now that I can access it easily

This will tell me whats going on with hopefully the pump and valve.

Is funny there is no reaction in the cylinders or hoses on the lift stroke.

I would still inspect those poppet check valves in the top of the valve body, at least if it's like mine. That could explain the noise you're getting in the valve.

The check valves are very simple and under hex plugs in the top of my valve, perpendicular to the axis of each spool. These are separate from the relief valve. I could send you a schematic of mine if you would like. Just send me your Email address. Mine is open.
