Ok guys..had a leak at the junction for the Bucket Cylinders. I took both Hard Lines/Rubber apart. Cleaned/Cleared etc...and put back tight. Now Bucket doesnt curl. The lift goes up and down, but no curl. The SCV is sketchy you have to tweak handles so the lift will work properly....even after going through and changing orings to dealer bought replacements.
I am assuming air. Have worked every Hydro part every which way numerous times to try and work air out. Bucket right now is facing all the way down. It twitches but like it hits a lock after an inch or so. I even tried to push it past the point with the Mrs. Pulling lever back. I could push further than it would itself, but right back down.
Loosening connections on bucket cylinder on both sides have pressure...

"Maybe I hooked them up backwards?" Well doesnt work either way you swap lines on front. So...brings me to the Diagram. If i am reading this correct. The Lift Cylinders are plumbed cylinder to cylinder and rod to rod...the bucket however shows me that they cris-cross?? I dont know Hydros, but is that correct or should they be cylinder to cylinder and rod to rod as well. Regardless bucket wont curl either way..

All fluids have been changed, new filters etc...all clear...

Any ideas?

More than likely your quick connects aren’t fully seated. Remove them, clean, and re-insert. :good2:

The bucket cylinder hose diagram is wrong.

No quick cons...screw in hoses throughout. Need to get some though!!

I agree that the diagram in the Manual is wrong..just wanted to make sure.

What else.

Is it possible you have one side reversed?

One is trying to go out while the other is trying to go in...resulting in

What you have there.


You'd only know if they were unhooked from the bucket which is a pita.

on my 70a loader....the hoses from the curl cylinders...top hoses of both hook to the same Hard line.
Same with the bottom hoses...both hook to "That" same hardline.

If you had it all apart it would be easy to hook hoses to the wrong spot as they would easily reach the way its plumbed.

If possible post some pics of the area you were working on...loader lines/hoses

Well!...HaHaHa...when all else fails, start from square! Exactly as the Duke said. I had my wires crossed...what a Dumbo! Had the Bucket rod and the Lift Cylinder hoses swapped at the SCV.

Working like a New one now...

Lesson Learned...again...its usually the Simple Things!

"If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you ever tried!"...now how to Delete this Thread haha..

Thanks Guys! Not a lot of info out there in writing anymore on this Old Deere!
