Default Ford 900 series hydraulic problem

I have the Ford 961, that my dad bought new in 1958. It sat for way too long without the hydraulics being used, as a result the hydraulic control system was quite rusty. The pump still puts out 2000 psi and the loader works fine, but the three point hitch is very weak and cannot hold a load without dropping even at moderate engine speed. I have changed oil several times and added a couple cans of Sea Foam last year.
Any great ideas?

the seals for the 3 point cyl. need to be replaced, or the control valve needs the same. I would check the cyl. first
