Customer Question

Good morning, I have a jcb 2006 model 506c and the lever that changes the wheel function is stuck. My wheels are not in a straight alignment and the function is in all wheel turn. Should I try to force the lever to front wheel steer? I am afraid that I will break the lever. Thanks, herman

Do not force it! This should be a hydraulic valve, with a spool that has to move, to locate the ports. On the bottom of the valve, opposite the lever end, will be a cover. This cover is where the return spring and washers are located. Remove the cover and see if it is rusted up or the spring is broken. I think this is why the valve is stuck.

I see a second question opened, Please reply to this one! Did you get to check the valve?
