Ford 2000 (1963) Hydraulics Problem

My Ford 2000 has a 5-10 minute delay with the hydraulics mechanism. Sometimes it does not work at all. Any ideas on what the problem might be and a possible fix?

Thank You.

Could be a weak pump
Have you checked the hydraulic fluid level? is it clean? no water mixed in?

I recently had problems with the hydraulics on my 1953 NAA. I never did find the smoking gun although I disassembled and cleaned the selectrol valve and changed out the fluid. Mine works fine now

You might also try bleeding the system. I'm not familiar with your tractor but there should be threaded bung on the pump, remove it and insert a fitting along with a hose and see how well it pumps into a container. Make sure your full up on hydraulic fluid first.

Be sure to check the fluid level with all the attachments "at rest". It could be something as simple as low fluid. My '55 640 hates cold wx. It really has to wait on the engine to warm up the fluid before it decides to work.
