Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

Yes the 3 point will stay up if I close the stop valve.
"If you turn your diverter valve toward the 3 point and raise your 3 point to a certain level will it maintain that level"? Yes Sir as long as I keep the diverter valve to the 3 point side.

Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

I don't thank so. I still believe the problem lies in the rocker shaft Or Main valve whichever you want to call it. Again the old original one "almost" works leaks down very slowly (3-4 minutes). but the one from hoye leaks down in about 10 secounds. that tells me that the new one from Hoy...

Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

Update: Talked to Winston (Thanks for putting up with me) and after much discussion he said I should take a pressure reading straight off the Hyd pump. So I bought the adapter from Hoy and took a hose, placed a T with a pressure gauge and a ball valve and line that would return back to the sump, and...

Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

No sir, the 1100 lbs is with the stop valve open and raising the tiller with 2200RPM on the motor. When I backed off to 1500 RPMs the pressure of course dropped to around 800 lbs and the tiller slowly dropped. I believe the relief valve is suppose to release at 2200 lbs and aprox 1500RPM. If I shut ...

Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

Winston:
I finally put a pressure gauge on today. I got 1100 LBs of pressure, but not sure if that is pump pressure or relief valve pressure. I thank it is relief valve pressure.
I placed the gauge on the side of the stop valve assembly (photo)

Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

Ok Here is where I am at NOW. Received the new Control valve and it works, (Yippie) the first new one Had to be bad. but wait there is more. It will pick up the tiller all the way, but I have to almost redline it to get it there and as soon as I back-off the RPMs even slightly, the tiller starts to ...

Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

No all relief valves are not in control valve.
I believe I have check them all to the best of my abilities.
I may stop at Northern Tools tomorrow and pick up a pressure gauge and check that as well.
Valve is scheduled to be here Monday afternoon. Will keep informed.

Re: 3 point hitch won't lift much

I appreciate all thoughts. Yes I tore it down and measured the ball, 5/16in. Replaced with a new ball. Replaced the hydraulic control valve with a new one from Hoye. Now It won't even lift me. put the old one back on and it would lift me again. Put the new one BACk on and still would not lift me, so...
