1256 remotes

When we use the remotes on the 1256, you have to be very easy and move the lever very little to let anything hooked to it down or it will lock the cylinder.  Only way to  unlock it is to raise it back just a little and try to go down again.  My help said something about it last year with the rake, and I forgot about it till I hooked the disk to it yesterday.  I tried the other remote and its the same way.  Is something out of adjustment  in the valve?  No problems raising up.  This is the only tractor we got that does this.

Do you have the factory check blocks on the hydraulic remote outlets of your 1256?  Basically it's the block that I have circled here.  It's a check valve to keep the remotes from seeping by & allowing the hydraulics on a implement to settle.  They can have a way of making operation of hydraulic cylinders on equipment rather jerky.  We removed them from my good 1256 because they interfered with the raising and lowering of our corn planter.

I thank its setup just like this, Ill look tomorrow to make sure.  Lines come down and have couplings, not like the couplings on the right side of your picture.

My blocks looks just like what you have circled with the lines going from the block back up under the seat, on both sides.  I can take the one on the right loose from the lines, but the one on the left has the lines made directly in the back.  Can i take the check valve out of the block or will it have to be completely changed?

The check valve keeps it from settling. I'm 90 percent sure your problem is the couplers checking. The double acting checks bother with planters and drills with markers. For those applications there is an alternating check valve.

Get rid of the check valve blocks completely all they do is restrict oil flow I took them all off my 656 you won't miss them

I changed the female couplers on the left side, it solved my problem. Will get a set for the other side when i get a chance. Thanks for the help.
