    I have an old Western Isamatic Lift Control, Mark IIIA. Problem seems to have started after a lower angle hose disconnected. Now, the pump runs, but no power to lift or angle.
    I have checked; pump fluid, pump motor, and the pump shaft and gears appear ok. Also cleaned pump filter. What now? Thanks for any ideas. :help:

    did you refill it with the lift arm up if so you have an air bubble not letting the pump suck up oil, its a pain in the ass and the pump will run but have no fluid coming out

    make sure your cables are ajusted right, take your quick couples off and see if it shoots anything out, if its all foamy then an airlock is your problem

    wait a minute scratch that, you fill the base on western so it cant be that
    id check cable adjustment first
