I need to remove my lift cover for repairs. The lift will not go down. I must be missing something. I have a 67 5000 without loadmaster. I have the center link and both lift arm disconnected. I have the 14 bolt around the top of the lift cover out. But the cover wont come off. What am I missing? I have a IT manual (FO-42) and that all it tells you. The left side is loose but the right side won't move. I dont want to force it until I'm sure nothing else is holding it. I also have the left and right side covers off and the pump out.

Did you get the bolt that is hard to see on the right side. don't recall how many there are but there is one that is hard to see just ahead of the lift arms.

As long as you got the bolt under the right side crank arm you should be OK to force it at the draft link with a bar. They generally hang a bit on the pump supply nipple...

Also... have you made sure that the ASC valve on the right side is pushed in? If it's not that WILL hold the arms up....

As Rod says....
I might add that the hydraulic filter has to carefully be wormed out without bunging it up. Can cause hang up....but not 'stuck' like the one bolt or ASC. Same for going back in....don't squash the filter. Just takes a bit of gentle maneuvering as you raise or lower the hoist.

thanks all. I missed the bolt under the lift arm. Once it was out came apart easily.

I've seen people glue those gaskets on with aviation sealer. I had one come off so hard it shook the ceiling (supporting the overhead hoist) when it popped loose.
