When Casey came over I showed him the Power King 2418 w/fel and mention that it wasn't picking too well anymore , it wouldn't lift the back of the JD 318 and he suggested checking the relief setting. He was correct ! After checking with a gauge it was around 800psi when it should have been set at 1250 psi, taking off the acorn nut and screwing in the adjuster to spec's it's working great ! Here's how the gauge was "T" into the line. Something to watch is some hydraulic pipe fittings don't have the bevel on the inside to seat the swivel pipe adapter correctly . The picture is a little hard to see the difference .P5240164.jpg

That looks a lot better Al, glad I was able to help you sort out the shortcoming. Now you will be able to blow out weak lines sooner, as well as iffy seals lol. But good news is you can finally adjust the seat on that Deere!!

Glad to hear it's lifting right again!

Good call Casey!
