WD45 lift arms raise before loader

My uncle has a WD45 with a loader on it. He says that the lift arms have to come all the way to the top before the loader will raise. Is there any way to adjust this to feed the loader first or better yet, not raise the lift arms at all?

we use to raise the arms up, then had a chain with a S clip to hold one up so it would not settle. ran that way forever.

Would a transport valve help in this situation? I'm not sure if it has one.

Really not much of an issue. No, you cannot tie them down, but you could tie them up. They get pressure first, before the remote valve. Once raised, and using the loader, they pretty much stay there on their own as long as you are using the loader continuously. You could put a shutoff valve in each line to the cylinders, but really ot an issue.

The pressurized oil will take the path of least resistance. Since the lift arms are lighter than the loader, they take the oil first. Only thing you could do is tie the arms down or take loose their hoses and plug their ports. Or maybe you could plumb some gate valves into the lift arm lines.

you could tie the arms UP, or remove them if they're in the way, but keep the shaft in the "raised" position.

or you could plumb in a selctor valve; but finding one that would be rated for 3500 or more might be a problem.

Today's Featured Article - Madison's County - by Anthony West. Philip Madison has been a good friend of mine for quite some time. He has patiently suffered my incessant chit chat on the subject of tractors for longer than I care to remember, and on many occasions he has put himself out, dropped what ever it was he was doing, to come and lend a hand cranking handles, or loading a find onto a trailer. Although he himself has never actually owned or restored a tractor, he was always enthusiastic and always around helping with other peoples projects. ... [Read Article]
