My diverter is giving me a problem today. Due to space and project limitations, my tractor has sat outside for the summer. That's probably the cause of my problem.
Long story short - the diverter isn't diverting! Engine off, I can push the button and I can hear the solenoids click so I know I have power to them. I unplugged both of them and tried them individually. The "inside" (towards the tractor) solenoid makes a loud, positive click. The "outside" solenoid clicks, but it's a lot less "positive". I also swapped the power wires and got the same results. So, I'm 99% sure that I"m getting power to both of them.
When I push the button and "curl back", the bucket will only move back a little bit and then stop. If I let off the button, the bucket will curl back the rest of the way. When I push the button and "curl down" (pushing FEL lever away from the operator's station), I get no bucket movement at all.
There's pressure in at least one of the diverter lines. After I do the above, sometimes I can push the button and see the lines "shake" a bit due to the pressure.
I've already taken the grapple lines off and cleaned the fittings. No change. I also swapped from my grapple to my tree puller and I'm getting the same issues.
Anything else to try? What is going to need replaced? Are the solenoids "user serviceable"? Hopefully I don't need to buy a complete new diverter block.
