If you have pressure at the bucket cylinders, you either have the bucket cylinders hosed wrong, or you have a cylinder problem. Look a the bucket lines and be sure the cylinders are plumbed base to base and rod end to rod end. The lines tee, and if you have one hose hooked to the base and other hooked to the rod end of cylinder, it will not move. If hoses are correct, find pressure hose when you work the lever in one direction, and remove the opposite hose on a cylinder, then pressure up the system again in same direction as before, if oil comes from the open cylinder, the cylinder is bad, if it comes out of the removed hose, the opposite cylinder is bad.
