Won't move up or down ?? Was working good this week with no signs of problem. Any ideas ?? Noel.

Fluid is where it should be on dip stick. 540 shaft is turning.

Is the arm you move to use the hydraulics still bolted tight where it goes into the housing? 

 

Have the hydraulics been slow or "weak" recently?

Sounds like your mechanical linkage under the top cover came undone.
You can remove the side cover and look inside for something obvious.
Run it with the side cover off and look inside for leaks.

Is it up and won't go down?
Or down and won't go up?

Linkage is tight. Down , won't go up. Then it sometimes goes up even with lever in down position. And with the engine running faster than idle. Then when it's on idle it goes back down slowly and doesn't matter where the handle is.

Hello Noel, maybe this can help you - it's for the TE20. Never looked into the manual so I don't know, what's written in it...

I'd say your going to have to take the lift cover off to figure out what's wrong.
Post back with any progress!

The stem broke in the control valve. So then it falls apart and is useless. Have to take the pump out the bottom of tractor, slide in the new control valve and put the pump back in. Not easy to work at through the side covers to hook it up to the forks.
Don't really know way it broke. New one works good but don't know for how long. If it fails soon then will have to look further in to it. Noel
