I have a 1958 d17 series 1 that will only lift about 700 lbswith the rear 3 point. It was leaking hydro fluid into the rear end so I had it split and the line going from the pump to the cylinder was bad, had it replaced and the new seals in the cylinder put in. Did not increase lift power so I had the pump removed and it had a broken roller. Sent pump off and got it rebuilt and put back in. Got the tractor back today and it will still only lift about 700 lbs. Anyone have any suggestions on what else I do.

What are you lifting and what are you lifting it with. My D-17 lifts 1500# round bales with no problem.

Nothing wrong with your hydraulics. Those tractors had a poor system from the beginning.

Have you checked the relief valve for trash? It could be held open.
