Farmall 560 hydraulic problem
|Jim||My Dad's 560 loader works, but the bucket bleeds down constantly and was wondering what might be the probable cause. I can not find any visible leaks and was wondering if there might be a seal that needs replacing in the hydraulics somewhere?
|Leon||Sounds like worn out cylinder packings. If you have quick disconnects pick the bucket up and disconnect them, if the loader still goes down then it's definitely your cylinder packings.
|Hugh MacKay||Jim: I agree with Leon, if disconnecting the hoses stops the problem then it has to be control valve on tractor. Having said that, 98% of the time it will be in the cylinders.
|Jim||The loader has 2 cylinders so I was suspecting it might be something else. How likely is it that both cylinders are bad?
|Hugh MacKay||Jim: Oil is going to flow the easiest course. You really have to check both cylinders to be sure. The bypass leak could be equal in each cylinder, or it could all be happening in one cylinder.
