AC 5050

Les Lane I recently acquired an Allis Chalmers 5050 and cannot get the 3 point hitch adjusted so that it does not oscillate up and down. I have changed the fluids, cleaned the filter, tried adjusting the sensitivity adjustment, etc. As the 3 point on the tractor had not been in use for a few years before I got it, I assume it may be old and crusty but the fluids I drained were pretty clean. Any ideas? I do have all the factory manuals and have tried everything mentioned except pulling the housing and reconditioning the whole thing.
Mark Piston that lift three point has a leak and will raise normally till desired level is reached then it will "hickup" at that position. It is caused by an internal oil leak at piston.
Les Lane Hi Mark!
Thanks for the information. Is that a big job to replace/rebuild the lift assembly or piston/ring/seal? I've never had one of these apart but am willing to give it a shot if it doesn't require removing real axle assy or something major and heavy. Do you have an idea what a repair facility would would be looking at in hours to fix it? The tractor is of no use to me as it is and I have too much invested in it not to fix it so I'm between a rock and a hard spot here.
