Mechanic: Curtis B., Technician replied 5 years ago

With military units, they can have odd parts. Look for quick connects on the boom/bucket functions, that could be reversed or not on the right connection. Not able to lower boom is sign that the oil is not returning to the reservoir, and the float bypasses oil from one side of cylinder to the other. The bucket not to curl is likey the same issue, oil has to return to tank, or the cylinder is locked. Oil has to leave one end of cylinder, for the other end to get oil, and let the piston move internally.
