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.
