low pressure

Postby Garland Terry » Fri Jun 06, 2008 10:31 pm

Okay where can I get a gauge to check the hydraulic pressure on a 154. I have fixed part of my problem by replaceing the control valve with one from Bates inc. I can control the up and down and the belly cylinder doesent creep out any more but Now the lift will only go up with the motor wound up all the way!! and the 3 point will colapse a couple of inches when I put my weight on it. somebody help me please. If I don't get this thing going my bride is going to run me off. :censored:

Hardware store in the plumbing section. Look for a guage that reads at least 1500 lbs psi. Guages come in a number of thread sizes - so take the plug with you when you pick up a guage. They are not very expensive -- Last one with 1/4" pipe threads cost me just under $13-.
I have an excuse. CRS.
