SOURCE: bucket goes up but wont come down

sounds like check valve is stuck, could have some trash in your lines, check manuel and remove check valve and flush hydraulic lines. also accuator cylinder may be out, that would be at the lever, may not be letting the oil return

SOURCE: The hydraulic steel line on my 2010C bucket loader

Like other hydraulic systems, there is probably a procedure for bleeding the lines after loss of most of the fluid. You may still have air trapped in the system and once it works its way to the cylinder, the cylinder is working with air instead of fluid and the air compresses instead of doing work.

How do you bleed the hydraulics on a Bobcat 751 skid steer loader?

Hi Joseph:
Usually hydraulic components will "self clear" any air in the system just by trying to cycle through the functions a few times.
Have to ask the question............
Did you remove and replace the hoses one at a time, or did you take them all off at the same time?
The reason I ask is............ Could there be a remote possibility that any of the hose onnection locations were switched?

Machine was switched off at end of shift and key handed in as per procedure. machine was found this morning with bucket in down position with front wheels raised.

You have a ghost! or someone playing a prank. or someone trying to nick it, started it, pressed the wrong lever and lost their bottle.
Most of these keys can be replicated with a screw driver or even a nail so they are not very secure.

I have a bobcat s175 the bucket will not stay tilted up it slowly goes back down

Most likely a control valve is leaking. If it just comes down over a long period of time that is not unusual. Most all loader buckets will slowly drop when parked in raised position.

Which is the best way to remove a 1990 toyota hi-ace van engine thru the top or drop it down ?

Try to lift up the whole bucket seats from the drivers side towards the right. Use the back seatbelt to hang the bucket seats. The engine is right inside the front row seats. That is where you can remove the engine thru drop it down..
