    Default Re: IH B414 FEL, Bucket curl won't go one direction

    I haven't shifted the hoses yet, but I will today when I get out of work.

    If the cyl piston lock nut did come off, wouldn't I not have full power to curl down? I can curl down with full power still, just won't curl up and won't hold when the lever is neutral.

    No on the full power thing, you are going to have leakage.

    You might have some movement if the rod is centered in the piston.

    If the nut did come off, you should be able to move the bucket up and down by hand.

    If everything was working good, the spool would lock the bucket in place.

    Well, you were right. The nut on the left cylinder was broken into 4 pieces. I first swapped the hoses, but I still couldn't get much up-travel.

    The piston was stuck at the top of the travel of the cylinder. I was able to pull it off, run down to Tractor Supply and pick up a 3/4-10 nut which fit on there perfectly. The original was a thin castle nut, not sure why. The threads got a little skewed from the nut pieces but it wasn't too bad.

    Just tossed it back together and put the plow back on. Lot less creep now than before, I think that nut has been loose for a while. Just in time too, all of MA has been under a driving ban since 4:00pm statewide (even on my dirt road) and NH's started at 6:00pm. Now I'm ready for the 34" or so of snow headed our way!

    Thanks again JJ, you have been a big help.

    Did you Loctite the nut with red or blue?
