i have a leyland 154 and it seems like the 3 point hitch isnt holding pressure i went down to my buddys house last night to get his rock rake and when i went to pick it up it wouldnt even move it so i took the tractor back up the house and i was messing around with it i stood on the hitch and it wouldnt even pick me up they will raise up with out any weight on but i could push them down with no problem ive got to get this figured out out fast since we are going to start brush hogging and put some food plots in real soon

it is either a valve with a bad seal or the cylinder has an internal leak that isnt allowing it to build much pressure i would start by checking the hydraulic fluid level to be sure that it is full low fliud can cause all sorts of problems on a hydraulic system if fluid level is good then i would suggest rebuilding the valve assembly since that is the next cheapest thing to fix haviny a hyd. cylinder rebuilt is not real cheap unless you can do it your self.

no i think it is the valve but im not sure if you hold the lever up then the bucket will work but if it down or in the middle it doesnt work so it seeems like when that lever is up it sending fluid to the bucket but if its not up then it must just be returning it back to the tank im asuming but i was told that a log splitter vale will work but i just ahve to find one with the same size nipples i dont know im kinda at a loss so im just gonna replace that because that seems to be the problem

Like amf1414 said, If the valve is working. Then the cylinder is bypassing fluid. If it has an internal lift cylinder, it could be a bad "O" ring.
