    We just put a gauge in the lift cylinder hose, yes it should be 1750lbs, turn the screw in, through the hole closest to the truck and the lowest on the RHS, until it hits 1750lbs, or about 2 1/2 turns from fully tight.

    Can't turn screw in from steel&alum being in the weather for 5+ years. Know the pump sounds like it's cavitating and it's not low on fluid any other idea's

    Did this just happen all of a sudden? Sounds like the pickup tube may have fallen out of the pump. Very common on the Ultra's..

    Just soak the heck out of it with kroil and let it sit. Then try moving it.
