8N Slow 3 point drop

Tim Elam Lift raises fine, but extremely slow to drop blade to ground. Any help would be appreciated.
TomG Simplest explanation is that a flow control valve is nearly closed. I don't know 8N's, but many tractors have a knob below the seat that adjusts the rate of drop.
Pat Birschbach I had a similar problem but it was when it gets colder outside. The pump for the hydraulics is right at the bottom of the housing, or right next to the drain plug. Water will settle to the bottom of the fluid. What I found on mine is when water gets in there and starts to freeze is prevent the flow of fluid. I see similar results when I don't change the fluid very often (every couple of years). It could also be sluge in the fuild which affects the flow. Try changing the fluid if you have not done that in awhile.
