Dexta 3 point hitch is lifting to high, it's binding, why?

My Fordson Dexta's three point hitch hesitates to lift from a cold start but lifts after 30 sec - 1 min. It also when the lift lever is pulled all the way up lifts the 3point hitch to the point which I feel is to high, the lift arms are flexing from being pulled up to high. There is also a point at which the pump puts a load on the engine near the top end of the lift, I push the lever down slightly which causes the load on engine to go a way and also the flex out of the lift arms. I think it must be a setting or set screw that should be adjustable but I'm at a loss

Any suggestions? Thanks

You have 2 choices. The procedures to adjust the height requires the arms and lift top pulled. Procedures are found on the Fordson webpage.

Second choice is to install a stop in the lift control which limits your height.

The other symtom, 30 seconds to lift sounds live fluid viscosity or level. I'd check level first.
