Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

With you hand make sure the control valve is moving at the pump...

If not use a pry bar to make it move.... It may be all you need...

I have had one to stick closed after I spent mega bucks rebuild'n the hydraulics after a pry'n it open its never stuck again....

Unless it continues to stick are if you want a challenge leave IT BE THAT IS IF YOU GET IT TO LOWER I have had some mean ones but always won...... Even cold if you push on the lift arms it should lower... Fore go the jack it will only be in your way (if you go their).... Car ramps will be your friend....

When I remove a pump I either jack the tractor up and put it on stands or the way I like to do it izz drive the rear wheels up on car ramps, block the wheels then roll under it and remove the pump no jack needed. You will git a little fluid on ya. When you raise the tractor up that gives you the leverage needed to handle the pump. If you do not jack it up then it’s a fight cuzz you kin not git in the rite position to handle the pump. I usually install the top cover and then install the pump, front of the pump goes up and in over the ears of the PTO support and then the rear of the pump goes up add a bolt or 2 at the front of the pump and use one hand to guide the position lever in and push up on the rear and install a bolt in the rear. I have also got good at install’in the lift cover by myself and it does not really make much difference how I install the parts cept its E-Zee’er on my back to install the lift cover first then the pump “8N ONLY”

Its not bad to install the cover last,,,, install the floor boards,,, set the lift cover on the rear of the tractor,,, straddle the center of the tractor and set the lift cover down “tip use 2 line up studs in the front 2 holes to keep the gasket in place and align the cover’’’ Now that the cover is on stand at the rear and lift up the back of the cover and align the position control rod to the pump,,, set the cover down and nail it….

DO Not stand at the rear of the tractor when check’n for hydraulic operation,,,, a spin’n PTO takes on all comers
