Just bought a 2006 foton ft404 4x4 with a koyer front end loader with quick connect hoses. I took off the loader to plow in a few tight spots Reconnected the loader and I'm not getting the tilt as fast as before. No leaks anywhere but I feel there's air somewhere. Any advice oh wise ones?

When removing a loader, before you detach the quick disconnects, you need to shut off the engine and move the loader control lever through all its positions to take the pressure out of the system. If you don't do that it will be close to impossible to reattach the quick connects. ....
