I always drive with my hand on the lever, ready to lower the loader NOW, in iffy situations.
And I'd never run with the load that high off the ground, unless necessary for some odd reason.

Thank you, yes Rookie here, there were reasons but probably not good enough for this amount of stress.
I have a two post car lift hanging from the bucket. To clear something in the barn I had to lift it high up. Also, before I ' fixed" the 4wd I could not get out of the barn because the rear wheels slipping. Figured that bringing it higher would getting it closer to the cab and get more pressure to the rear.. Ah well after the 4wd " fix" Mogli got out. My bucket controls are sticking and me be a non certified operator so did not want to mess with them..

well lessons learned nobody got hurt.

On to my 4x4air cylinder, stickingbucket controls...leaking swing cylinder and.....

I unfold the excavator and park it centered up or if really bad lowered down a bit. Give a ton of counterbalance.

Yeah. Possible. Just hoping someone had figured out a bimba replacement part number. The original seems aluminum.. Stainless would have been nicer.

Today mogli lifted a leg to pee... I almost dirties my undies..going down the hill with a load in the front.

Thank you... I disconnected the loader lever from the hydraulics to see what is sticking.
The central shaft is more or less stuck inside the outer bushing making both levers more or less connected.. Took a while to get the central shaft out.. Fortunately the driver seat goes far enough to the front to separate it.. Will put in on the lathe and take a little of.

I had a similar issue on Mog #2 and cleaned up the ID and OD of old dry grease and rust. Worked like new!

I wouldn't remove any material, since it used to be nice fit. Instead, try removing the gunk and corrosion like Speedwoble suggested.
It'd be less work, and a lot less than trying to get new material in there if it all ends up too sloppy.

Agree, just steel wool or a fine wire brush on a bench grinder for the shaft and rifle brushes for the female stuff. These clean up really nice. Modern synthetic grease wont gump up like the old stuff.
