Don, I don't profess to be a hydraulic expert, but usually when you have a sudden pressure drop (not complete loss) it means the pressure release valve, or pressure regulator, either gauled, or has debris causing the cup/piston to hang open. This happens with power steering pumps on cars...same principle. If it was seals or something worn, it would in theory, have been a gradual loss of hydro power.

Ken, you may be onto something. Thing is, what if it has never produced proper pressure???

I have in the past, thought it should have more power, and just dismissed it all, thinking it is just old technology.

Anyway, I ran the next set of tests.

This test involves running the engine at maximum RPM (2200 RPM ish...Can't tell exactly, the pointer end of the tach needle broke off some time ago!)
With the revs up, you raise the loader arms and try to roll back at the same time.

If it does both at the same time, it indicates an issue with the main pressure control valve.

But it acted differently. I'd be raising it, and observing 680 psi pressure then when I then also tried to roll the bucket back, the loader would stop rising, and the bucket would curl back until it hit the stops, then the loader would continue to rise.

The loader will not rise to full height any longer.

Maybe he can drag SqD down there next to it so they can keep each other company?

Let me see if I can guess at the punch list:

1) Turret ring on top suitable for most common crew served weapons (with pintle, and spall shield) and CROWS system
2) Custom trailer with cartridge based MICLIC system (5 charges) for quickly clearing firebreaks (and minefields)
3) Commo shelf with both military and COTS communications systems to cover the spectrum from FM thru Satellite
4) Computer system with GPS add-on and wi-fi for navigation and mobile updates on RMTWS
5) Performance add-ons to improve the vehicle's horsepower to sufficient levels that it can push dirt at 45mph, minimum
6) Custom cab that is bullet proof up to .50 BMG, and mine resistant
7) Custom seating with 5 point harness, and with shock absorbing mounts that will absorb the G-load typical with IED/Mine strikes
8) Custom radio with loud speakers to blare out Ride of the Valkyries and warn any Hajis to avoid you like the plague (doubles as mobile platform to spread the word during spiritual retreats)
9) Armored hydraulic lines capable of surviving nuclear detonation (or 48 hours constant abuse by BigD)
10) Primary, secondary, and tertiary hydraulic pump set-ups to ensure constant operations (or 48 hours constant abuse by BigD)
11) Anti-missile system
12) Reactive armor

That's just off the top of my head. LOL

I also thought 48 hours was generous.
But I like the list!

Doesn?t our military already make bulletproof dozers.   I am pretty sure I have seen photos.  Just buy a surplus one of those

Chief, I tried to quote, but accidentally deleted your post:

"You guys are hard on me, I'm off to my safe space..."

I was going to say you take as much time as you need there little snowflake, but no I just have to say, "my bad".

Prime time use would have been that conflict called Vietnam. You could have lined up a couple thousand side by side & just pushed being that country is so narrow.....
