Troy. The Ferguson tractor is really mechanically quite basic, any reasonable handman with a few basic tools should be able to get one running.

If you don't have a local mechanic, do you have basic mechanical knowledge or any idea what may be wrong with the tractor?

I can work on most things. When it stopped lifting, the 3pt lever just didn't feel right anymore. It was tough to move, like it had resistance on it. The PTO still spins, I just can't lift the 3pt.
I had a guy come out that delivered wood last fall, he saw it and said he used to have 6 of them. I told him what was wrong, and he said it was an easy fix. "Just take the seat and top plate off, you should see a fork... probably just popped off". Well, I took all of the bolt off that go to the plate that the seat bolts down onto to, but can't seem to raise it more that a half an inch. That is as far as I went. I didn't want to mess anything up from that point.
