If it's just the Hydro lift having issues I'll bet it's not the control valve. It's most likely the "O Ring" on the piston in the push/pull cylinder. Just my two cents... Best of luck...

What problems were you having when you took it into shop for repairs? Surely they did not take from April to Sept to find something wrong with lift system? I sent you an e-mail with a valve on E-Bay. I think it is high priced. If that is truly all that is wrong I may have a spare one.

Hmmm.... Well, I can't seem to find 171949. YOU need to get to a 'Bearing house' to match up the Orings. Is the sping broken? Dave Hutchins has had good luck making sure the quick change work (freely). I would tend to agree! The belt tensioner needs to come off every now & again to be serviced (grease the pivot bearing). Any other hydraulic issues? When was the last fluid/filter change on it??

You can match up the O-rings at a bearing supply or hydraulic supply house. I'm a little confused (as others are) about what your real problem is. It seems to be painfully obvious that the shop isn't trying to repair it or unaware of the full dealer network and how to find the correct parts. They simply may not have an older mechanic who's familiar with this machine. This being said, if you do have some problems w/ the machine that they cannot resolve. Go pick it up so someone else more qualified can have a crack at it. I wouldn't have any problem paying for replacement parts, but I'd have serious issues with them sticking you with a high labor bill considering the amount of time they've had it and still not completed the repair. If you have a problem in the valve, such as the centering spring, and washer, and some O-roings, all these can be swapped out of a good valve. I dought you have both spools in the valve bad, so the problem most likely has damage on the spool most used. Ie the one for the rear/deck lift. Anyway, these parts are the same on the single spool valves found on the early 616/4040 powermaxes, and the spring and washer should/could be the same off of the lift valves from any of the 700/7000-900/9000 series tractors w/ hydro lift. Bottom line is the parts even used, can be found. I have a single spool lift valve extra. You can change most anything on these tractors even if your not a master mechanic. With the help from this sight and a little problem solveing, I'm sure we can help you with anything you might need. PM me if I can help, or e-mail me.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
