Machtech relief valves
I recently put two new Machtech stainless automatic relief valves in my 782. They are beautiful to look at, a joy to hold, and the tractor is silky smooth in forward, reverse, and up & down for the first time since I've owned it.

Mark's customer service is beyond great. I had a problem & he helped me get it fixed. I always expected a little roughness in a 35 year old machine, but after installing his valves the old 782 is as good as anything on the market.

Can't recommend Mark or Machtech enough!

Same here. Remanufactured my valves quickly and at a great price. Good as new!

I had the relief valves done on my 982 by him, I am very happy with the product and turn over times. I got my relief valves back, they work flawlessly and half the price of the cheapest new ones I found.

He has a pair of mine as I type from my BIL's 1450. Sent 'em in last week and hope to have 'em back by the end of this week.
Great service!

I must have asked the wrong questions when I called him. My 782 hydraulics are weak at about 400psi. Wanted to have it bumped back up to spec. He said he could not do that???

That is correct, they are not "relief valves" as in pressure adjustment.
They are to relieve the hydro so it can be pushed, sometimes called dump valves.
You need to look @ the service manual and shim the relief valve on the top of the hydro kind of between them,
And only use a small shim maybe the thickness of a soup can, which will bring it up several hundred pounds,and you will need a gauge with @ least #1000 reading
The info is here, I'm sure someone will link it for you.

Simple enough. Thanks for the link.

I know this has been discussed before but what does he normally charge to rebuild them? I have both a manual set and a auto set I will be needing rebuilt
