If you have lift up, and turn off tractor , will the three point drift down quickly?

I takes about 5 minutes to drift down
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 11 months ago

Has the piston on the internal lift cylinder been resealed? If piston leaks, and it seems to be leaking, or it would hold position, would let three point cycle up and down, as oil leaves and then is replaced in the cylinder. I would reseal the cylinder, and check all the valves and springs at the same tie, s yo do all the possible items while lift cover is off.
