I often use this site as a resource for how to's and don'ts and I can't find the answer to this one. It's a strange one. My left curl supply line blew out the the other day. Thankfully I had my shades on and still have my eyesight, but I got soaked none the less. Anyways, I replaced the line this morning and all was working well. I cycled the bucket about twenty times to work the air out and everything seemed in order. However, later this afternoon after brush hogging and moving some stuff around, the down curl function is messing up. If I feather down lightly the bucket goes to full extend (which is normal). Under full down (stick far right), it goes down like it normally should, then extends down until I feather back to about half way ish.
Retract (up) works just fine. Curl down works under light feather, but moves up as soon as I go far right on the stick. I can hear the engine strain a little as it's curling down. No strain when retracting the pistons in full up at any speed.
So, what the heck is going on here? Is it air in the system from the line I had just replaced? I never had this problem before and it's got me scratching my head. Weird part is, it was all working fine initially, then a few hours of work later, it's acting up.....
Added: Also once I replaced the line, I washed the crap out of it to get all the oil off it with a regular garden hose and soapy water. Made sure I didn't directly blast any electronics or anything. Not sure if this has anything to do with it, but I figured I'd add it in. To me this sounds like a hydro problem and nothing electrical was wrong after the initial wash.
Thanks in advance for any and all replies.
