first check if the control lever is avtivating the spool valve. then i would crack the hydraulic lines loose a little where they go in the cylinder. then operate the swing controls and watch where the fluid comes out of the lines. just nudge the controls, you dont want to spray oil everywhere. that way you can see if you are getting flow to the cylinder itself. is the motor straining when you try and swing the bucket?? could be the cylinder is frozen. if you got fluid at both lines, last resort would be to disconnect the lines at the cylinder and use a come along to swing the bucket and see where the fluid comes out. then hook the lines up accordingly.

no, the motor isnt straining. it will move a little one direction & when i pull the lever for the other direction i can swing it by hand.

i will do what you suggested & see what happens.
thanks for the response.

I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
