JD 425 Blade hookup/cruise control problems

Brad I am tring to hook up the 4 way hydraulic blade. this is a 2000 year tractor. The top lever moves the deck, thru the valve body. However, the bottom lever is rigid at the valve connection site. I need to get couplers for it, and the shut-off valve to the deck, but cannot get the raise/float/lower lever to move.
Also, the cruise control does not work, and cannot see how or what it should be connected to beneth the tractor

BJHS3 Brad -

The lower lever on the JD425 is prone to freeze-up because of non-use. It usually can be freed up with penetrating oil applied at the valve body and a careful and judicious application of force. Once you have freed it up, just exercise the lever a couple of times when you start the tractor.
