    HELP! 2305 3pt Wont Lift

    So just dropped the loader and backhoe which worked fine so I could put the mower deck on. I reinstalled the three point but cannot get it to lift. Yes I reconnected the single hydraulic line in the back so the fluid cycles through the system. When trying to raise the 3pt the tractor does get stressed but nothing happens. I checked the site glass and didn't see any hydraulic fluid so I figured it was just low and changed it along with the filter. Tried again once site glass was a 3/4 and still nothing.

    At the end of last year I was trying to get the arms for the deck to stay up and was playing with the deck height and also what I believe is the rock shaft knob which controls the speed of the 3 pt. I'm thinking that the rock shaft might be stripped in the closed position. Has anyone ever dealt with this being stripped out and have a fix?

    Any other suggestions of something I could have missed?

    Thanks everyone, this is painful and I can't have any tractor time.

    Unplug that Power Beyond hose, clean the couplers, and reconnect it again.

    Did you check the power beyond connections more than once? I've had several times where I could have sworn they were connected good. Re-tried and yep, they weren't making all the way.

    Power beyond isnít fully seated. Sometimes it seems to lock but in fact isnít.

    I ain't the brightest guy on the internet, but isn't there a valve knob under the seat that controls how fast the 3pt. arms drop? Did it get turned all the way "off"?

    Solved

    Got home cleaned and reseated the power beyond hose, still same deal. Took off the seat and black cover plate that sits over the speed/lock out 3pt knob. The speed/lock out control was stuck in the locked position and spinning freely. A roll pin was missing that connected the two rods together. I'm thinking the original owner must have did something or it came from the factory missing. There was a C clip over the whole so it's impossible for it to fall out. I installed a heavy duty cotter pin which should hold it solid. Now it's working like it should, thanks for the replys.

    Now on to the next issue, deck height knob spins freely when the deck is all the way up. I think this may have got damaged by the old owner also going to take a better look at it this weekend. I'll add another thread if I need help.
