My JD 5103's 3 pt. hitch will only lift about 4" loaded or empty. I can, however, fully lift the hitch with the draft control lever.
I have been told the valve may be stuck. Is there any way to check/free the lift valve?

I have used the draft control on numerous occasions.
This problem just came up a few weeks ago after the tractor had sat for a mouth or two.
The lift lever will only lift the 3 pt. hitch arms a few inches. in order to get ground clearance for an implement the draft control lever must be raised almost to the top position. ....
