I have attempted to install a hydraulic top link on my 231 but, I cannot get the cylinder (fitted with check valves) to operate in both directions. Extends only even when I swap lines.

My MF is fitted with the TS300 diverter valve, two lines exiting the TS300, a control valve (Metro) on the RH fender with two QD lines at the RH rear. It appears that I need some additional hydraulics of some sort.

I have heard terms like "Power Beyond" (whatever that is) and other stuff like closed center (or is it open center) and other mysterious nomenclature that evades me.

So, can someone advise what is needed to get the cylinder to operate in both directions?

If you swapped the hoses and it only extends I'm going to guess one of the checkvalves is fauty, will it work with the checkvalves removed?
