If you can find a place the hose couplings are close and reasonable to get at, you could swap the boom hoses to the dipper or bucket hose (if one of those doesn't seem to drift). If the boom holds then it would be the valve. If it still drifts down it is likely the cylinder.

It would appear you will be out of luck if there is a problem with the valve. As long as it works your chains are likely the best fix to hold it up. That is not an uncommon thing to see chains securing outrigger, boom, etc., on old hoes.

 Re: boom cylinder will not hold when up, have to chain it in reply to Jim.ME, 01-12-2020 11:09:17  
Thank you for the advice. I very much appreciate your willingness to share information. The chain idea was given to me by a case mechanic at one of the case industrial equipment dealers. Thought about removing the cylinder and taking it to Skagit Hydraulics for testing. Do You have older equipment like me or is your equipment newer? We sold the small farm, 10 acres plus buildings, that has been in our family for 100 years. just unable to care for the property anymore. I used the case a lot on this property.
