4600 hydraulics

While using the loader on my 4600, I blew the line that controls the lift. After replacing the line, the bucket won't hardly lift. While trying to lift, the engine strains and it lifts very slowly. All other hydraulics work fine, the bucket tilts and the rear arms. Do I need to bleak the air somehow?

I don't know if this means anything, but previously the control lever would trip when the bucket either bottomed out or would be under heavy loads. On mine, the loader works when the control lever is pushed back. If I tilt the bucket and it reachs the closed position, the control lever will trip to the middle position, which controls the rear hydraulics.

My first thought was that the hydraulic level is low, but I don't think I lost much fluid and the other hydraulics work. I changed all fluids this Spring and put in the recommended amounts. I see in the manual that there should be a fill plug by the park brake, but I don't have a square plug on mine and all other nuts look the same and don't appear to be fill plugs. Can anyone tell me how to check the hydraulic level?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks

If you use the quick couplers at the rear of the tractor, this is the problem. I have a 1978 4600 with a 772QT loader, and I have the same problem. Work the hydraulic valve real slow back and forth and this should help. The oil seems to lock up the quick coupler, especially in cold weather. As far as the level of the hydraulic oil, mine does not have the oil plug as described in the operator's manual. Seems to be some kind of generic problem with this series. Best, drain oil, refill with 34 quarts and measure the oil level at the filler plug.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. 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]
