Pretty cold here Rich, lower 30's. Harold, I reluctantly stood on the arms and raised and lowered the control lever and nothing happened. They have moved some though because the chains are looser. Chris and Jesse, When I bought the tractor the lift arms flopped back down after raising w/o the tractor running so I guess that rules out rockshaft binding. So I'm left with Bruce's diagnosis which is a stuck exhaust valve. Bruce, I won't do it halfway, so dropping the pump is in my near future. I suppose after I remove the bolts after the tractor is jacked up I'll just use a floor jack as a buddy to lower it. Thank you for all the replies. The good news out of this is the pump lift cylinder appears to be sealing well. This continues to be a learning experience which is why I enjoy old tractors. Gerard

As Harold said, it's not a major project. I make it an overnight job because I like to soak the pump. I tried a floor jack once, but it's easier for me to just lay on my back & pull it out.

I agree, it is easier for me just get underneath and remove having a small wood block so it doesn't fall on concrete,When lifting it back in,push up hold it with one hand and place 2 bolts loosely in, crawl out put lever in slot.

I agree that you can get it out and in without a jack. (And I am a upper body weakling.)

Call me if you have any problems. I've done a couple of these. Can be done easily on a Saturday. No gasket sealer on the bottom gasket. Get a big bucket to drain the oil before you remove the PTO shaft. Good time to look at that seal.
