Unusual 3600 remote problem

Son was sowing oats to-day with our 3600 and a 510 IH drill. He noticed that the remote lift ram on the drill would kick out before it's full travel and sometimes on retracting too. What the heck could cause this? Definately a new one for me! BTW it's a 21/2"x8" cylinder that we've used on this drill since news.All fluids at correct level.

Just so I understand what you are saying here,
You are using the detent on the remote handle?
Pull (or push) the handle till it hits the detent and it will automatically pop off the detent when the cylinder hits the end of the stroke?
What happens when he hits the handle again?
Will the cylinder finish it's full stroke?
I'm pretty sure the detent works off of pressure - ie, when it begins to build too much pressure it will pop off. My snow plow and hyd top link work that way.
Could whatever the cylinder is moving be binding real bad so that the remote thinks it has reached the end of the stroke?
Or maybe the detent ball is worn out and no longer holding properly?
Also, some remotes are adjustable from detent to non detent.
Maybe that screw is set half way between the two functions?
Just a couple of things to think about.
Beyond that I have no answers.

Thanks UD. These remotes are original equipment and we've never had a problem before. Drill is working well as we changed tractors and his DB990 runs the cylinder well (he's actually drilling soys as I type). Guess we'll have to dig deeper when seeding is finally over (we're a month behind in pretty well all of Ontario)
Thanks for some pointers,much appreciated.

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]
