I have the strangest issue. Been running a big heavy box scraper behind my Massey 35 for the past week. Yesterday I had this issue where the blade lowers really slow. Usually if I lower the 3pt arm lever the attachment falls straight to the ground (and falls hard). Now if the scraper falls down slowwww - like 5 seconds to get down and if I push the quadrant lever all the way down it seems like it stops the lowering...if I push the quadrant lever down but leave about an inch before bottoming out the arms slowly lower. On the up side I have to pull the quadrant lever all the way up to get it to move up. The pump is a new replacement pump installed not too many hours ago and the arms dumped down and came back up much nicer until 2 days ago. What did I break on the tractor by banging that box blade around!?

As Dieseltech has said, this is quite normal as you move the control
lever into the Response quadrant. This moves the control valve
towards the neutral position thereby slowing the flow of oil. If you
think that you may have damaged something it would be wise to
check the operation of the control valve assy where the top link is
attached. Make sure that it is free and not stuck in or out. It does
sound a little like you may have damaged(bent) one of the linkage
frames inside the hydraulic cover.

What do you think I bent? The arms that come down from the quadrant and actuate the pump or something under the seat?
