Ok so if it ain't the cap plugged I will tear the cylinder apart and reseal it. Change fluid and filter and ad some lucas,just as a precaution. Thanks guys. I will update when I find something new out.

It's always nice to see what is inside there. Most likely the cylinder, but you never know!

Along with all the other bits and pieces, there is also an o-ring between the piston and the rod.

 

Do a little judicious cleanup of the base end of the cylinder. The piston comes out there, not the head end. Remove the base end fitting before trying to push out the plug.

 

Who put the Eaton in a MF1655? The Snappers came with Eatons, the MF's came with Sundstrands.

So I was grading the driveway today and when it started loosing lifting power,i unscrewed the filler cap. No gush of air this time,and no change in operation. So I guess I will be rebuilding this cylinder.

Well I swapped out the cylinder from another tractor that is known good. And no change. So I guess it must be the valve that's bad.

I think I might have a spare block or 2 on in a bin. If not, I hope I can find a good used one cheap too.
