Re: 420 blade no raising clear up

my jd440ic had similar problem, found out it was the cylinder cups, took 1 to shop, they redid it to the tune of almost $300..had them give me extra gasket, cup sets...that cost me $50 and i did other one myself. make sure hydraulic fluid not milky, if is use sea foam in it.
