I am losing pressure on the tilt function on my Bobcat 743

Customer Question

I am losing pressure on the tilt function on my Bobcat 743 skid steer. Press down on the pedal and it will tilt up but will slowly start going down on its own. It seems to be getting worse now as the tilting up function is slowing down. I tried changing the seals on the ram but did not help. Cannot find any hydraulic leaks anywhere.
