Most hydro problems on a cub stem from a plugged filter, I recommend changing the fluid and filter before you go any further. The fact that the hydro works but the lift doesn't is also a sign that the filter is plugged. if you have a Napa near by the Napa gold # is fil1410 and the wix # is 51410, those are both hydraulic filters. Don't run an oil filter on it as it likely won't function correctly.

When you do the fluid change its important to take the rear cover off the rearend, the ih hytrans traps moisture which leads to a jelly like substance on the bottom of the rearend which I've seen up to an inch thick and is most likely the cause of the plugged filter.

I'll say this cause i know you like bolens i just sold all my large frames for this 1512. I paid 1500 for the tractor running needing a lot of work came with a newer 50" deck and cat 0 3 point. i have about 700 into it right now in repairs.

 

Comparing this to my 1886 i sold. I prefer the 1512 the cat 0 hitch has a lot more adjust ability in it and you can't beat the pur of the little 3 cylinder kubota. i also prefer the smaller size as the 1886 was way to big for my lawn anyways.

I do like my Bolens tractors, all 5 of them.  I tried one large frame and that was enough for me.  That S14 Wisconsin simply would not run or generate any spark.  Lot most of my hair messing with it.  Going to like this Cub when I am done with it as it should bring a decent price.  Wish it had a 3 point but it don't.

Definitely plan on a fluid and filter change to start with.  I use Baldwin filters for everything and have had real good luck with them.  Lot of that Ag people in this area use them on all their tractors, etc.  It is specifically a hydraulic filter.  Oil will be Northland Hi-Tran.

Thanks for the advise.
