I just got this unit from a neighbor. He does not know much about it so he is no help. It has a freeman loader on it running off the factory hydraulics using the little pump on the right front side of the motor. The loader lifts up and down but does not have down pressure. I have not tryed to lift a bucket of dirt, which I need to try. The pressure line from the pump to the rear tractor hydraulics has a tee with a valve so you can use the loader when closed or the three point when open. The three point lifts slow and the engine rpm has to be half or better.If I stand on the three point it will not lift. I do weigh 230 lb? Could the oil be by passing thru the loader valve, returning to pump? Maybe I need anothr valve on the return side of the ldr valve? Or might my hyd pump be weak?? Sorry to be so long winded!!

The tractor has a open center hyd. The pic. of the valve shows it to be plumbed wrong. The oil should flow thru from side to side. The big plug on the out side should have the return hose attached to it. The return from the valve should power the 3pt. The ball valve is used to shut only when removing loader from tractor to keep oil from flowing out of system. The oil flow should start at the pressure line elbow to the left side of the valve thru valve out right side to the line to hyd. system.

i'm with rrlund here in that your transmission and rear-end is your reservoir and those two hydraulic lines that run from the pump should both go into a round canister with two bolts on the side facing the driver that is where your filter and magnet should be i think i would remove that tank on the fender plus it probably gets very hot with the exhaust right there not good if none of this is correct i am also lost

Have you taken the filter screen out and cleaned it? They don't have a replaceable filter. That big tube along the lower right side of the motor,take the plate off the end and pull that screen out.
I have to tell you,the remotes on my 1365 are slower than I'd like them to be. I've run my haybine with it and I'm not impressed with the speed. I don't think you'll ever get gangbuster speed from the loader off that pump. They made a pump that goes in the rear of the tractor for that. It's the one I showed you in the picture a few posts back.

I did remove the screen on the hydrauloics and washed it. M y screen is just under the left side of the seat. I was told some models used the tranny/rear end for a reservor. My reservore is small, self contained sits on top of the rear housing. An extra small tank was added to increase storage for the loader needs. I don't mind the slow part but if I stand on the arms it will not lift my weight?

Are you sure about that reservoir being on top under the seat? It should be in the entire trans and rear end. You fill it with that plug just ahead of and to the left of the shift that shows in your picture. If that's not it,I'm lost.

On my 1250 as J.W. said the tranny is not the reservoir. The reservoir is right under the seat. I think it calls for 3 1/2 quarts of ATF oil in the book. The book also says if you are using a loader it is recomended to add an auxilliary hydraulic tank.
