The lever on the right of the seat that controls the hydraulic valve is my guess.
When I bought mine it had a FEL that requires the lever to be held down so the pump will send fluid to the FEL controls. I hold it down with the back of my right calf & use the FEL. When I let it go, it flips back to the central position & then I can use the three point linkage
NOTE - the linkage doesn't work if that lever is held down.

I also use a backhoe off the rear linkage & use the rear remotes to activate this. To achieve that I have to hold the hydraulic valve lever UP (I hold it up with a bungee) & then use the backhoe controls. If this lever slips out of the bungee, the backhoe stops working, but the rear linkage WILL work.

So - I would carefully check the operation of your hydraulic valve, because this needs to be in the "neutral" position to allow the linkage to work: up or down & its no go.

I have a hazy recollection reading somewhere about reversing a washer on this hydraulic valve to alter the operation from single acting to double acting remotes, but since mine works OK I have never attended to it. My hydraulic valve seems to operate as a three way splitter: down for FEL, neutral for linkage & up for backhoe.
