Had a fluid leak that I traced to the loader. In trying to get to the hose where I think leak is, I disconnected the hydraulics from tractor/loader. I also took off the piston piece that lifts the bucket.
kubota dealer built me a new hose (about 12 inches long).
I reassembled everything and reconnected hydraulic lines.
moved boom up and down and three point hitch.
also added UDT fluid.
Bucket will not swivel back and forth at all.
Any suggestions at what might be going on?

Hoses not connected right would be my guess.

Thanks to Dan, I rechecked the connections I had disconnected when I was trying to figure original leak out. Dumb me didn’t get 2 of the quick disconnects connected properly. I’m back in business now.
thanks for the help!!!
