So I just removed the blower from my 1025r, and put the loader on for the first time in 4 months.
I had a bear of a time with the lift/lower blue and red connectors as it was pretty cold when I took it off and today was a warm day.
I tried pushing the connectors against a piece of metal, but the nipples wouldn't budge and I ended up having to squeeze them in with a pair of channel locks. I tried taking the. Weight off the part stand, shifting the loader around with a 2x4, trying to relieve the pressure on the cylinders but no dice. Finally was able to squeeze in the nipple and let out a quick burst of fluid with the channel locks.
Doesn't appear that any physical damage was done to the connectors as a result of this, so that's good.
However now the loader seems slow. It may just be me as I haven't used it for 4 months, but what's The lift cycle time on the H120? Curl and dump seem fine. Tried various engine speeds but it just seems slower then I remember. It's about 5ish seconds from ground to top.
