Just to clarify... I have not taken anything in the hyd system apart. All I did was clean out the reservoir of years of sludge and added new oil after reinstalling the trans. In doing some additional troubleshooting I think air is getting into the system because looking in the fill hole with the engine running the oil looks foamy. Also with the fill plug installed I forced air into the dipstick tube with the lift lever in the full up position and the system not lifting it immediately lifted the 3 pt. Hope this makes sense and might help to diagnose the problem.

Originally I rebuild the transmission. When I had the tractor separated I cleaned out the hyd reservoir. I didn't take anything apart in the hyd system. Obviously you have to drain everything and take the tubes off to separate the tractor. After putting everything back together I refilled everything with new oil. The tractor sat for three years and I don't remember how well the 3 pt worked before. Anyway now I'm thinking the O rings on the hyd tubes might be the problem. However there is not even the slightest bit of an oil leak anywhere. But there seems to be air in the system from someplace.
