I have been going through everything on this tractor since the beginning of last summer and hopefully replacing the hydraulic hoses today is all I will need to do for awhile. Old ones were 32 years old and hard as a rock and one was leaking. I changed around the hose on the lift cylinder to where when I pull back on the lever my 3pt goes down and pushing forward it raises and it works fine. While I was doing hydraulic hoses I went ahead and changed all the rubber hoses on the transaxle. I replaced the trans level gauge tube and glass with a piece of tycon fuel line that is light yellow and see through so I could see the fluid level as soon as it came out the reservoir. Thanks for all the good advice that I received from all of ya'll before I completed this phase.
