The main relief valve is adjusted by shims. # 4. It is on the incoming pressure side of the backhoe control valve. Remove shims to lower the pressure.
I do not see your reply - please try again
Item number 4 is shims that have to be removed to lower the pressure. This is the incoming end of the backhoe control valve.
Where is this located - on the backhoe itself?
Yes, it is located where the backhoe levers attach on the backhoe valve.
That worked - thankyou!
I have clicked on accept your answer, but nothing happens. Did you get paid?
no, it still shows open.
