    Default Intermittent lift problem

    We had some bad hydraulic hoses on the FEL that had to be replaced, and after replacing the hoses, the 3-point lift doesn't want to lift. Working on it yesterday, we turned the lift speed control knobs a few times, and eventually the lift went up and down once, then stopped raising again. Further fiddling with the knob eventually got the lift to raise one more time, then it would raise again.

    Also, I'm not sure if it makes any difference or not, but I am able to lift up on the 3-point arms and they move freely. I couldn't remember if they were supposed to be movable by hand or not.

    I am trying to find a copy of the service manual I had a few years ago, but I had a computer crash and am not having any luck finding it yet.

    Most likely air in the system.
    You can lift the 3pth by hand.

    How would we purge air from the 3-point lift?

    Well, if there's air in the system causing the 3-point not to lift, how do I get it out?
