The 3 pt hitch has been working great these last few snow storms with my snow blower. Today though it would only raise after lever was pushed all the way down and raised all the way up. the 3 pt hitch goes all the up but slowly lowers. Am I looking at a pump rebuild and if so how tricky is it? Thanks in advance,

Could be the oil is cold and thick. Did it work better after running and warming up?

At 2 degrees it is cold and thick. I usually let her warm up for about 10 minutes before using on these cold Maine mornings. I will change oil this spring as it appears to be the color of caramel syrup.

Caramel color is probably water in your oil.

Some good insurance for next season would be to change the oil in the rear end .

If it lifts the blower then it"s probably not the pump. It"s most likely a sticking control valve. Before you pull the pump, take off the right had side plate and WITH THE ENGINE NOT RUNNING, reach into the oil and find the control valve stem and move it fore and aft. It should easily move about an inch from back to front.
