Does the Backhoe operate off the Rear Remote? or does it have hoses going from the back to the right middle of the tractor?
if it has hoses are they male and female? if so couple them together, this will continue the flow loop.
The backhoe does not operate off the rear remote. It has hoses that run to the right middle of the tractor. I think one hose is male and the other female.
The hoses are attached to the backhoe permanently. When I unhitch the backhoe they stay with it, not the tractor. The hoses on the backhoe plug into quick connects. So my earlier response to you was incorrect - the hoses cannot be male and female if they both plug into a quick connect.
What is the Model number of the Backhoe?
I think I have it. click here to see pictures of how the hydraulics should have been hooked up.
on the bottom picture the line Ref 7 goes to a coupler ref 6 , this should have been where you unhooked.
ref 6 needs to connect at Ref 14 on the block on side of tractor.
I think you are probably correct in your diagnosis. I am trying to go from memory (the backhoe is in a shed across the road for the winter and the tractor is in my garage so I am trying to remember what it looked like assembled 2 months ago - I have not had the tractor very long so I am not all that accustomed to it). I am having trouble trying to picture in my mind whether there is a line 7 equivalent on my tractor/backhoe.
The backhoe is model # XXXXX It is a well known brand but it escapes me at the moment (the memory is not working as well at 58 as it used to at 28).
