If you can operate both separately then you have a selector valve. If you can do one and then do both depending on the valve position then you have a lockout valve. The selector valve diverts all pressure depending on the valve position. I lockout valve just blocks the flow to one cylinder. It sounds to me like you have a lockout plumbed to the belly cylinder to stop its operation when using the 3 point. If I were you, I would change that around to lock the 3 point instead. That way you can lift an implement and lock it to allow you to use the belly cylinder independently.

I have figured it out I can do the belly mower without the 3 point lowering. I honestly think it had sat so long that it took a bit of running for it to work the valve loose.
I do have a question, How hot does the rear hydraulic hose typically get when mowing? I felt mine today after mowing and it felt rather hot. . . I just had it looped around without a rear implement.
It mowed great. The previous owner painted the engine and it smokes a little after it's hot I can't wait for it all the be burnt off. . . I don't think they used the appropriate "heat" paint.....
All in all a good week got the mower running / tilling / mowing. . .
I still need a steering wheel the one I have is falling apart and turns my hands black when using it. . .
Looking for a 10" Plow as well :)
Good night everyone! Hope everyone has a great week!!
