 430 fel only raises halfway

I have a 4310 with a 430 fel and the other day I was brush mowing a field for my uncle. I loaded up the tractor and brought it home and went to put it in the garage and the FEL wouldn't raise past halfway. it goes up too a point and then stops. checked the obvios ; hoses, lines, float pos,and it won't pick the front tires up. the 3-point works fine and the bucket curls.

Cub125; You mention you were mowing brush, perhaps you've checked this, but look under the right floorboard where the joy stick mechanisim moves the hydraulic valve spools to be sure a stick or something hasn't jammed in there and has something blocked. Another thought is to be sure the hydraulic couplers just ahead of your right foot are fully connected. Frank.

BINGO! we have a winner. One of the coupler's in front of my right foot was not fully connected. It was only out about a 1/8 of an inch. What a load off my mind. I have 62 hours on it and I thought I messed it up. Ijust purchased all my fluids and filters for my 50 hour service.
