Does the Farmall 460 have down pressure on the fast hitch?

as others have stated, yes. It' nice for hooking up to implements as you no longer have a need to jack, just drop it down and pick up the hitch put pin in and then release jack and your off.

I think that the 460 fast hitch is the same as my 340"s and there is a pin in what is called the Bellcrank that can be removed that will allow for the fast hitch to float. The Bellcrank is located at the bottom of the cylinder. I have put just a little down pressure on my fast hitch (block between the drawbar and the ground) to relieve the pressure on the pin.

The link to the parts diagram is on the 340 but it looks the same as the 460 when I looked it up.

The whole theory of the mechanical draft control on that hitch requires that the hitch can float. You remove the lower pin right below the cyl pin for float which allows the hitch to raise in respsonse to increased draft of an implement without the cyl or any part of the hydraulics being activated.

Yes they do.

Makes it nice for some jobs and it is a problem for others.

Gary, doesn't the 460 have a feature to allow it to float if down pressure is not desired? Not all that familiar with the fast hitch systems on the larger Farmalls though. Thanks as I'm just looking for a learning today, Hal.

The 460 Farmall we had did not have a float feature of any kind. It was purchased new in 1961 by my father.

And I have never seen a 460 with the float feature.

The 300U that we had had a pin you could pull but the 300 Farmall I have now has no float feature either.

The vertical lift links from the rockshaft are supplied with a cast iron shaft collar and a large square headed set screw. There are three positions for the set screw about 2" apart. This allows for no float or as much as 6". Perhaps one can remove the collar and get even more.

There are also pins with D-rings on the fast hitch sockets. They can be removed, stored in another hole on the receiver, and this permits the Fast Hitch receivers to rotate as much as 30 degrees or more.

So, yes, there is float capability on the later Fast Hitch. I am guessing all Fast Hitches after 1955 can float in this manner. The previous Fast Hitches can float by removing one pin on the vertical lift link.

I should also point out that starting with the 04-06 series, some of the hydraulic valves have a float position in addition to the previously mentioned float provisions. But using those valves would disable the draft position/control that is part of the hitch system.

On a 460, one could install a hydraulic float valve on the hitch lift cylinder. Doubt if one will find that part in a 460 or similar parts book.
