Hello! Let's see if we can can work together to get to the root of your question!

Once a Monitrol, always a monitrol! Sorry. Can't be converted. You have what kind of problems? Is this all hydraulic type, or is this newer electric version with switches on pedal and solenoids on transmission? Hydrauic type below.

last time i had it working it would only move in one direction, it is the all hydraulic type

the foot valve has few parts in it, just springs and check balls. Do you have a local Hyster dealer that you could take valve in and have them go through it? New check balls and springs might be all you need.
