Zetor 6211 No 3PL Lift But Power Steering Works

Hey everyone, I've got a 6211 I've been repeatedly tinkering with but having no luck.

There is no hydraulic pressure to the 3PL ram. Power steering works fine. There is oil getting back there but no oil is coming from the high pressure hose leading to the ram. I was running the tractor for a number of months after the high pressure hose burst. Hoping the hydraulic pump isn't damaged. Does anyone know how to prime the 3PL ram on the 6211? Really frustrating problem. I am assuming it is pressurised by the hydraulic pump at the front left side? If anyone can point me in the right direction that would really help. Seems like it is just needing to be primed but I have no idea how to do it. Tried parking it up and down hill with no luck. Maybe I should change out all the oil?

Thanks everyone. Can provide more information at your request.
 
Had that model where I work, we used it for snow removal. lost hyd on it one year replaced filter, no go, took it inside for a few days to see if water had got in system and froze, still nothing. finally loosened the hydraulic line coming from the pump got some air, foamy oil, and then some oil tightened the line back up and the three point worked like it should after that.

Thanks for taking the time to reply Handyman. Are you talking about the lines right at the pump at the front left of the tractor? Or the lines underneath the seat? I may try loosening the line coming from the pump again today and see if I have any luck. Here are a couple photos to help illustrate things:

I probably should know more about the tractor I own. I'm not too bad with engines, but just a bit lost with this hydraulic issue. The 6211 has just the 1 pump right? Sorry for the trouble, I just have a fence to build and need the hydraulics working!

right at the pump, it seems to lose its prime and needs to be bled once in a while.
