that? What are you, some kind of a drama queen? This is a tractor
website, not one for nuclear physics. I'll go somewhere else to ask
my questions. Grow up, a$$hole....[/quote:eba3c96131]
oil??? Are you the same person (Dave314) that asked the original questions? Why did you change your handle from Dave 314 to oil? That's just adding to the confusion if you did. If you (oil) are not the same person as the original Dave314, then stop posting as if you are.
Now Dave314 posted this:

This is what Larry was asking you to be more clear about. Correct routing of hydraulic fluid in a loader is a very exacting thing, so you need to be more clear how you describe what changes you made.
Your statement about switching the 2 hoses appears to mean that you removed both ends of both hoses and just swap the positions of the 2 hoses, which will not actually change anything about the way the fluid flows. Did you mean to say that you disconnected one end of each hose and swapped their positions? This would make more sense as this would reverse the flow from the original configuration.
So let's get a more detailed description of your loader setup.
Do you have 2 hydraulic cylinders, one on each side, that provide the lift for the arms, or just 1? These are called the lift cylinders. If the loader has arms on both sides, they generally have 2 lift cylinders, but there are "one armed" loaders that only have a single lift cylinder.
Do the lift cylinders each have 2 hydraulic lines going to them, or just 1 hydraulic line each? If there are 2 lines going to each cylinder, then they are double acting, meaning that the hydraulics provides power to both lift and lower the arms. If they only have one line going to them, then that is called single acting, and the hydraulics only provide power to lift the arms, while gravity provides the power to lower the arms. Whether you have single or double acting cylinders will help us to try to figure out what is going wrong, as we are not there in person and we can only guess what's going on if we don't have the full picture..
Do you have 1 or 2 (or possibly none) hydraulic cylinders that control the curling/dumping of the bucket? These are called the bucket cylinders. If it has none, and instead uses a manual cable or lever to dump the bucket, then that's called a trip bucket.
Do the bucket cylinders have 1 or 2 hydraulic lines going to each one? (that is if your loader actually has any bucket cylinders)
Also, we still don't know if the loader is being run off the tractor's internal hydraulics or if it has a separate front mounted pump with a separate reservoir. If you don't know, could you please provide some pictures so that we can try to determine this for you?
Please answer these questions as clearly as you can and then we will probably have more questions once we know exactly what kind of loader setup you have. Your answer doesn't have to be "sophisticated", just clearly stated so that nothing is ambiguous or left for us to guess at. This post was edited by Sean in PA at 18:12:55 01/12/13.
