You long time Case guys probably allready know this but it has given me fits on two 70,s so far until I finally tore the seat off and saw how they worked. Every operators manual I've seen so far is backwards on their instructions on how to adjust the tension on the T-bar type seat adjustment. They all say" clockwise to increase tension for heavier operators and counter clockwise for weaker spring for lighter drivers" . Both the 1070 and the 970 I've had or have , it is just the opposite. We're talking the T-bar adjuster, not the nut down at the bottom some other seats have. Are all the manuals wrong or did I get the two tractors they put together backwards at the factory? I lubed the bolt up and turned it left and it is a two finger deal now and about half way the length of the bolt and it holds my 190# up high like it's sposed to. Common sense and the manual are BOTH wrong in this case. Left (cc) increases tension! This is the "Agri King Seat" w/arm rests and backrest. Might explain why all of them I've sat in , the adjuster is stone tight and the seat goes to the floor. Another headache explained. Normally common sense will prevail when the manual is in question, but common sense even says to the right , clockwise , tightens/increases/adds or whatever you want to say.
