Gain access to the quick coupler valve group (1) located at the upper left side of the articulated hitch. Install tooling (A) on test port (2).
Start the engine and warm the hydraulic oil to a normal operating temperature of approximately 49 to 65°C (120 to 150°F).
Run the engine at high idle.
Operate the quick coupler.
Record the maximum pressure obtained on tooling (A) for the "EXTEND" mode of quick coupler operation. Note: Test port (2) is only for the "EXTEND" pressure.
Reduce the engine speed to low idle.
Turn the engine key switch to the OFF position.
Release the hydraulic pressure. Refer to the Service Manual module Testing and Adjusting, "System Pressure - Release".
If the pressure reading is correct, proceed to step 11. Refer to Table 1 for the pressure setting appropriate to the coupler installed. If the pressure reading is not correct, adjust the quick coupler pressure reducing valve. In order
