catmastertech :

Hello, this is caused by blown resolver seals.

catmastertech :

If you reseal the loader valve, it will cure this issue.

catmastertech :

If time and cost are a problem, just replace the resolver seals on the second seats.

catmastertech :

Remove the right rear wheel and you will see four access holes to the seats.

catmastertech :

Each seat has a seal and a loose check ball for the resolver. Be careful not to loose the ball, it is about the size of a BB.

catmastertech :

I usually order new seats and balls if the machine has high hours on it.

catmastertech :

If your has low hours (below 4000) just replace the seal and it will be fine.

catmastertech :

The older machines have a screwdriver slot were as newer versions have allen hex sockets.

catmastertech :

To loosen the seat, strike it with a punch and hammer firsts. It will be much easier to remove.

catmastertech :

If you find you valve has the screwdriver slot, you may need a chisel to get it loose. That may require removing the loader valve to better access the seat.
