48' 8n, lever about halfway up in the position control setting, it slowly raises alllllll the way. I can go up faster by going all the way up on the control lever. If i want the blade to stay a set like 6" off the ground, its impossible. The lever and arms dont act how they should and essentially feel like a bucket/forklift fork stick... Theres a middle deadzone the blade almost stays still, but any higher it creeps all the way up, any lower drops down all the way over a few minutes.

Maybe ive got the draft/position valve backwards in my head, but its vertical and this happens. I put it forward to the horizontal position and it acts very similar but feels strange and really floaty (im pretty sure thats draft, correct me if im wrong)

Most likely, the cam follower pin has worn through or nearly so.

Verify that the draft/position lever is in position control. if position control does not allow set position, remove the lift cover, replace the cam follower pin, and readjust the draft and position control
linkages. Will need a jig to do this properly.

Of course, you will want to renew the lift piston O ring and back up washer (Hint: Use the newer neoprene one-piece O ring/back-up washer.) If your tractor still has the three ring piston with steel rings,
most folks replace it with the NAA style piston.
