|jono||Good morning, I am hoping for some advice please. My lift would not stay up for more than a few seconds, and now it will not even raise. Some research told me that the most common problems are bad piston rings/worn cylinder, bad pressure relief valve or maybe a blown top cover gasket. I have removed all and inspected. Other than some minor scoring on the piston and cylinder, I don't see a problem there...and the pressure relief valve looks OK (plunger and spring)Not sure about the top gasket...
Can I trust this visual inspection or should I just replace all? Or should I be looking for something else?
|Jim L||Hello jono, welcome to the N series tractor forum. You didn't say what tractor you have, but I would think that a top cover gasket leak would show fluid leaking out. I have to assume you have checked the fluid level. Try removing the inspection plate, the one with the dip stick and see if you can see anything going on in there. Look for fluid spraying from something. Parts can be expensive. It's best to try to pin it down before you start throwing parts at it.
