i have a WD and the hydraulics on both the remote cylinder and the snap coupler lift operate very slow almost like it is low on oil or has air in the system. anyone here know any reason why they work slow and not so smooth? it was like this during the heat of summer and the cold of winter. the oil level is as it should be with the recommended weight of oil. thanks for the help.

The pump on your tractor has four pistons that run on a lobed shaft much like a cam shaft. If one or more of the pistons are stuck or not pumping for some reason it will act like you describe.

Travis, check the travel of the linkage from the quadrant to the pump. If you don't have full travel, the result will be as you explained. Raise the lever and then grab the rod and see if you can raise is some more. Tom

Is the rate of flow screw adjusted out correctly?

Today's Featured Article - A 1937 John Deere Unstuck - by Gary Hickman. Here is my story of how I got the pistons out of a 1937 JD B that the engine had been stuck for about 14 years: About 12 years ago my Dad gave me one of the tractors I ran as I was growing up on our farm in central Nebraska. The engine on this tractor, a 1937 John Deere "B", had been stuck for 2 years before he gave it to me. This last spring (1999) I hauled the tractor to our 2 acre lot in St. Libory Nebraska where it joined my antique machinery collection, at that time a 1929 Caterpillar T ... [Read Article]
