The tilt on my th63 only works one way is there a valve I

Customer Question

The tilt on my th63 only works one way is there a valve I need to check as sometimes it does work. The relay is clicking when the button is depressed. The lines all come to a valve at the back between the diff and the counterweight. I am assuming this is receiving hydraulic pressure when the button is pressed which diverts the boom extension oil to tilt.
What is your suggestion?

Yes, a solenoid valve changes the control from extend to tilt.

The main hydraulic valve is mounted beside the engine under the hood.

This valve is located at the rear of the engine frame below the radiator.

It has four plastic hoses that connect to the main valve.

It is often damaged when operating in heavy debris or deep mud.

Check the harness connectors too for corrosion if you work in a wet area.
