Everything works except the bucket, and the bucket pedal is not locked? Is bucket full travel either way? Are you getting fluid to the cylinders? If either bucket cylinder has internal leakage, it affects both cylinders. Maybe bad cylinder or bent or broken bucket cylinder rod?

It makes no noise or feel of pressure when stepping on pedals no signs of leaky cyl or bent shafts
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

take line loose at bucket cylinder and see if oil is flowing when pedal is pushed. Any leak would be internal and would not show as external leak.

If the foot pedal is moving the valve spool, the fluid should be going to the cylinders. Very little to go wrong with a control valve, other than the lock solenoid.

Hydraulic pump s the small pump on the rear of the drive pumps. See if there is flow at the pump outlet? If not flow, pull pump and check drive and pump. May be broken or stripped.

Ok Curtis I took the output line loose at the pump & there is no fluid or pressure, I also took the big line loose, not sure if its the feed line, its a metal pipe with a 90 then has a rubber hose with a clamp its comes out of the side of the pump, the output comes out of the top of the pump, then theres a small hyd hose thats attaches to the bottom of the pump & goes to the steering pump closest to the engine, didnt take that one loose,
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

Big line is the suction hose. Was it full of fluid? At this point, have you removed the pump and checked it?

Ask Your Own Construction and Road Equipment Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
No it wasn't full of fluid. No i havent removed it yet, i guess its time to pull it & check it
Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 2 years ago

I would! 2 bolts!
