Subject: Leveling Jacks

I just bought a very nice 78 FC but the leveling jacks won't operate. I get 2 green lights on the dash when I switch on the leveling system master but that's it. When I move the levers there is no sound. I have tried it with the key on, key in accesory, engine running, air up, etc. Also I don't know where the fluid tank and motor are located. Previous owner said they were working a month ago so I assume it is something simple. Is there a low oil level cut off? Thanks for you help in advance.

Sounds simplistic but are you sure that the leveling master switch on the dash is on?

I should have read your message more carefully, I see that you had the master switch on. The leveling system motor/hydalic pump is located under/behind the step. It looks like a starter motor. The leveling levers when pushed outboard supply voltage to a solonoid under the step that supplies high current 12 v to the motor.
