I have a D17 Series III with the single remote and "Transport Valve".
The 3 pt hitch works fine (doesn't drop when loaded).
Problem is that I decided to borrow my buddy's New Holland haybine to cut my hay... I can only hook up one hose, so I tried them both until I got the one that would lift it - the problem is it won't lift it far enough - the cylinder isn't even half way extended and the skid shoes on the haybine drag on the ground, so I don't want to take it on the road.
I tried rotating the "transport valve" below the remote outlet, but that didn't seem to do anything - it acts the same with the valve screwed all the way in or out... I don't think this is normal, but it's the first time I'm trying to use the remote, so I'm not sure.
The other thing is my buddy has a JD 620 & uses pioneer ends on the hoses for his JD, but the guts of the remote on my D17 has a nipple on it, so can I use the same ends he uses or do I need to use an end with a nipple on it too?
I read the other posts about the hose from the 3pt hitch lift cylinder leaking, but my levels are all pretty steady, so I'm not sure that is my problem, that's why I'm thinking it could be related to the transport valve.
