    Default 553 of doom

    First. Thank you for helping with the diagran for rebuilding cylinders. I rebuilt both lifts but couldn't get the head off the tilt so i subbed it out. Anyway lifts are working great. Husband gets in it today. Gets foot happy and now the tilt is stuck out, bucket ia hanging off and tilt wont go in. Any ideas?

    Check the quick couplers, one might not be engaged fully stopping flow of hydraulics.

    ON the hoses at the hose ends that connect to the tractor. There will be four. Just disconnect and reconnect each one. If one was not fully connected it will not allow hydraulic flow. Very common problem.

    They be under/near the right foot rest or at the back of the tractor.

    Did that on the 2 that connect to the tilt cylinder. Both had fluid. 1 was quite airy. Almost like a shaken can of coke. So i disconnected the bucket. Used a come along and pushed the tilt cylinder in. Re attached bucket and back in the game. Until he ran it out of fuel and now to figure out how to prime it. Yay. Thanks for the hint tho.
