Loader / hydraulic problem

Hi folks,
I'm new to the forum and have been looking for an answer to my problem.
I have recently bought a 1982 DB1190. I bought her to take some work off aMF35 3 cylinder which I am going to restore in slow time.
The 1190 came fitted with a front end loader which went up and down as it should, she has been laid up in the shed for about a month and now won't shift either way, this includes the bucket ram.
I'm looking for ideas of where the hydraulic setting should be for the loader to work.
All suggestions gratefully accepted.

Is the loader operated by a separate valvebank or is it operated by to the tractor fitted double acting valves? If the loader has its own hydraulic valvebank, the oil from the tractor is probaly taken from the 3-way valve. If so, flick the 3-way valve to position 2 (if the oil supply is from the lower plug on the 3-way valve) or to position 1 if the oil supply is taken from the upper plug on the 3-way valve. Then select tcu and pull the main hydraulic lever fully back against the spring force and lock the lever in this position. If this does not help, you may have a leaking by-pass valve. Please note that if the by-pass valve is leaking you also have a problem with the 3-point hitch.

Ok I found it, found the lever to the left of the seat for the three way valve, one happy teddy here. My only excuse is she is a bit more complicated than the little 35 :roll: :wink:
Thanks for the idea
