332 Hydraulic Detent/Float position

1377 Views 5 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Tracs
I've noticed on my 1987 332, that when the inside lever is in the Detent/Float position sometimes it will pop out. What part of the system keeps it in detent? the levers or the spool valve itself? Can it be rebuilt so its tight and stays put?

Spool valve is normally the culprit, sometimes cleaning the pistons solves this.
Would a worn out detent/float position have any connection to the front lift/lower cylinder bleeding down quickly as well as my problem with down pressure being applied when using the outer lever? I am starting to think so.
Sorry, I just noticed you have a 332. Me so dumb. I don't know how to delete my post.

Cleaning the detent hardware may help. If not you may need a detent kit (John Deere Detent Kit AM143325). I put a kit in mine a two years ago and it works better than when new.

The price went way up since I did mine at a cost of $111.00. Maybe tariffs??
LOL only $450 from my dealer.
