    Talking ford 3000 with desperate lift

    im paul from ireland im new to this forum.I have a ford with a real bad lift, its very jerky sometimes, and if you rev it sometimes it will lift less, also if you bring the handle up in stages it will lift better, but if you pull the handle up quick it wont lift well at all. i was thinking of rebuilding the pump cant see the differ between these two rebuild kits only the word MINOR or MAJOR, will the 2 kits fit the pump i refer to? is there much work in rebuilding a pump?
    the lins to the kits
    eBay.ie: FORD 3000 4000 4110 HYDRAULIC PUMP KIT. FHPK600-5 (item 150565419813 end time 20-Mar-11 20:26:51 GMT)

    also getting a lift cover kit and a filter

    i find lift worse in the cold, pipes going to pump seem sound. the pump on it used to be serious what do you think is up?

    I think ,you are going in the right direction ,but to fast....
    1- Did you check the oil level
    2- How old is the oil
    3- Did you check o replace the hydraulic filters I have 2 of them in 2000 Diesel

    Hope that helps

    My hydraulic professor in college used to say 90% of 3 pt hydraulic problems is really a linkage problem.

    Sorta sounds like some linkages in the lift cover are worn or binding.

    Do you have factory specified fluid for your climate, and filter? Any air bubbles in the fluid?

    Have you checked pump pressure?

    When I works, I works hard. When I sits and thinks, I goes to sleep.

    Git er done.

    i'd look under the lift cover, after checking oil, before I even glanced over at the PUMP.
