After I got the 1655 White running and drive it was on to the hydraulic lift. Could only get the cylinder to move one way. Switched the lines at the valve that run to the cylinder and it work the opposite direction. Motor pull down a little when it hit the end of the stroke both ways. Figured the valve was bad. Put a different valve on and now the cylinder won't move at all. Motor pulls down when the control is move in either direction. This valve is off a JD garden tractor but is a 2 way valve. The in and out on this valve is opposite of the original. I have it hooked up so the line from the pump goes to the IN and the OUT goes to the filter. Diagram don't show which way the oil flows. Do I have it hooked up backwards?
Called my local tractor mechanic this afternoon and from the way it was action it sounded to him like it was reversed on the hoses. Switch the in and out hoses and it works like a charm. Now I can move forward and build a couple arms for the 3 point and will have it going.
