Any one have any advice on where to start looking on my tractors hydraulic circuit. It's a case 224, 1987. Had to pull the motor out for a re-re-rebuild and just got it back in. Got evrything put back together and leveled the deck. Started the motor up and moved the travel control lever in reverse and nothing. Tried forward and the same thing. Then tried the deck lift and that worked fine. Checked the linkage to the travel control valve and everything appears correct and working. The tractor was traveling fine prior to pulling the motor and having it sit for about two weeks. Nothing was touched with the linkage or hydraulic system while the motor was R&R'ed.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Tim

Try shifting the trans-axle from neutral to either the HI or LO range. I've found that the tractor moves much better with the lever in one of these positions.

Don't feel bad. It has happened to most of us. That is how we know what to check. :sidelaugh

Tim, look at the bright side. At least you didn't shift into neutral at the top of a hill.
