The oil level is fine, and is there any way to rule out one problem or the other?

yes, systematic diagnostics.

now, back to larry's first question.. do you have any sort of diverter or remote valve fed off the top cover of your hyds cover. including power beyond 'sandwich' plates.

if not, then time to see if you have oil at the pump head by removing the plug in the top/front of the pump with engine off and run her over / crank.. if oil comes out.. stop.. put plug in, then remove plug under seat in 3x5 option cover and do same test.

if oil there.. then stop, plump in a 3000 psi gauge into that hole.. chain a lift arm tothe axle, and start tractor and run 3pt lever up ( if you have remotes you can also pressurize a remote with a hyd gauge in the lift port.. etc..

post back what she makes.

at this same time I'd hav ethe fill plug out and using a strong led flashlight and a mirror , look in to see massive oil spray / squirting going on from anywhere inthe top side.... especially if the psi made on the gauge is lower than 2100 psi..

also note if running the lift up whiule chained labors the engine any.

ps.. if it has a proofmeter.. is it working?

post back

The tractor doesnt have any remotes, and when I initially started the tractor to mow I raised the deck, everything was fine,got to the area to be mowed and lowered the deck and everything was fine. Within 10 minutes I had to cross the driveway with the mower turning went to raise the deck and nothing.
I will pull the plugs and see if oil comes out and check the psi as well and report back, but it is weird that it just all of a sudden happened.

if you have depth limit chains holding the deck at cutting height .. then it's also possible the unlaoding valve has simply stuck as well...
