i have ym180 tractor that has not been run for several years because hyd lift would not work got running cleaned the hyd screen & replaced the filter . now lift will go up when you start engine and will not go down goes up when started even when the lever is in down position will go down if you remove the valve under the seat black knob

I would thing something in the control valve is stuck if all external linkage is working and intact.

I just worked on the same issue with mine. I took the control valve off and pulled it all apart there was a small piece of metal that we defend it open. I assume the metal got there when my pump seized.
