I need a little help adjusting the stop on the hydraulic unit. I have the instructions from the servicman's handbook right in front of me. First it tells me I need a pressure guage (one that reads high pressures) for making the adjustment. Well, I know many of you have rebuilt your hydraulics with much success. Do each of you have a pressure guage? If not, how did you adjust the stop?
Here is a little background information. My first Cub was a 1951 which I used for mowing grass and plowing snow in the winter. The motor in it is running on borrowed time, just plain tired. I not could afford the downtime for a rebuild, so I bought a 1963 to take over the chores.
On my 51 the snow blade (54A) worked perfectly. In the up position there was plenty of ground clearance. When installed on my 63, in the up position, the blade barely comes off the ground. The previous owner(s) of the 63 didn't know what they were doing when it came to some of the repairs that were done and I'm certain that this is the case with the stop on the hydraulic unit. The way I see it, the stop will ultimately control the position of the rockshaft which in turn will have an effect how high the plow blade is raised. I just want to verify that stop is properly set.
Any help/suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
