    Most common reason is internal cylinder seal leaks. The next is the joystick valve having loose tolerances and allowing spool bypass. Finally, any external leak of a hose fitting or quick connect will allow tiny movement, but this is normally not the case for any large movement. The number 1 cause is internal cylinder seals with slow leakage. Since the lift and curl cylinders are in parallel, only one has to leak to effect both. One "bad apple" spoils the whole bunch.

    Did some road side sicklebar mowing to day. But first I had to put the shoe back on the mower. Last time I used it I broke a mounting ear off the shoe and had to get the ear welded back on.
    It was an Indian Summer day, in the 70's I think. Probably won't get many more of those for a while.

    It is a 7' Superior/First Choice Model 394 w/ hydraulic lift kit. I bought it from Ken Sweet in 2004 way before I knew anything about TBN.

    A couple of minutes of digging with the backhoe and I had uncovered this very old plow. It was upside down with the driven wheel showing. It appears to be horse drawn with one wheel providing power to the control handles. Anyone know anything more about this antique?

    Anyway, its now sitting as a monument on my driveway to the hardy souls that use to work this land.
    It looks like an IH Little Genius #8, but I'm not knowledgeable enough on those old jewels to be sure; it could just a easy be a John Deere #44, or some other altogether. It would have been tractor pulled.
    Here's links to a couple of examples:
    Yesterday's Tractors - Implement Photos
    and
    Yesterday's Tractors - Implement Photos

    I was working today on one of near that vintage, an IH 4-disc tiller I got to use with my H. I've got it to where I can plow ok, but when I adjust it far enough over for the furrow wheel on the tractor and plow both ride in the furrow the drive wheel on the plow isn't pulling straight. The drive wheel and the furrow wheel are toed-in way too much. And I'm begining to think the problem is with the tail wheel, at least partly.
    I can't believe anybody has ever figured out how one of these things work; if you don't have somebody who knows how to show you you're stuck. I'm going to work on it a few more days and then ask the old guy I got it from to help.
    Good luck, Wm

    Well I didnt do it today, but this is the last seat time I had. It took me 2 full 10 hour days to dig this pond with my new LS P7010C. It started out to be a small koi pond, but I guess they can grow to be big Koi now.
