Ford 8970 slow hydraulics

I'm going to look at a Ford 8970 which the remote hydraulics are allegedly operating slowly. The owner claims he has changed the filters any of the three remotes still will not pick up the implement as quickly as it did in the past. I have no information about the 3 point hitch because he never uses it.  My intention is to check flow and pressure at the remotes with a flow meter to confirm his problem but does anyone know of a common problem with this model tractor that I should be aware of (such as suction screen issues, historical pump problems, etc) ?

You need to check the pressure comp valve operation The older Genesis had some problems with the valves . You should check the remote cables to make sure the cables are not loose in the cable bonnets.
