I'm no expert on hydraulics but I have taken a class on the subject and repaired a few tractors over the years.

My first guess would be to look at a loss of prime. If you can find the place to add hyd. fluid to the pump, I'd try that first. If there is air in the system, it will not work properly or even at all.

Yup, I've gone through the first couple of steps of the service manual. I pulled the plug on the lower right front and started the tractor. No fluid. I tried the air pressure in the dip stick hole trick - still no fluid coming out at the pump. I'm about to pull the lift cover but the problem is that mine isn't what the book shows due to the FEL control on top. It says to pull it and then replce the smaller Section A back on top of the pressure tube before starting. Mine is all one cover.....
But, I'm also 70 miles from where I live and can't get back here till next weekend - hence the reason I had to get it in the shed. I'm going to get some pictures and then pull the lift cover - new territory for me.
Maybe it was that Regular Leaded gas :wink:
