First off do you have the hyd tank for the loader full of oil????????? If yes then check that the spline shaft has not wore to the point that the shaft slips in the center spline hub. Almost takes 2 people to check the shaft spline problem by having one raise the loader to max and hold it so see if the shaft stops spinning. Another sort of way is do the lift thing and if the engine does not sound like it is laboring then yep good chance the spline has wore out on the shaft and it is slipping

Dear Old Man, the shaft is not turning when I started the tractor tonight. The shafts are worn out is my guess. can i order new ones? I will remove the pump tomorrow. I was hoping they had an allen screw or keyway that broke. I have never had this apart, but will learn! I don't know if you can order any old Wagner loader parts or if this is from Ford. Thanks for the help, I will ask more dumb questions Sunday! Dale

You can get all the parts form New Holland dealers. I just did a loader on a Ford 3000 where the loader front mount broke and dropped the loader down and snapped a part of the shaft drive line and called Case and ordered the part no problem

I am pretty sure it was full of oil. There is a filler cap on the loader arm that is close to the front right engine. It said to fill it up close to the top vent cap. There was no oil leaking or broken hose, must be my spline shaft if bad. I will take it off tonight for further review. Thanks, Dale

As I said start it up lift the loader as far as it will and if the engine does not labor you will probably hear a rattle sort of sound which says the splines are striped out. BTDT to many times over the years and just did one that the loader front mount broke and the loader fell and snapped off the coupler

Mr. Old man, the spline shaft was wore down to the nub. I went to the New Holland dealer to see if they could order me another one. The spline bracket that bolts to the motor side was almost perfectly round inside. I need to order or make another one along with new shaft. are there aftermarket places to get these old parts? You hit it right onthe head. It was a pain in the rear to get to, but should work when I am done. Do you fill the loader through the vent cap up on the top right arm? There is a large cap by my right foot, but oil pours out when you loosen that cap. Dale Earnhardt Swineheart

This site as will the New Holland dealer of Vaul-bilt all should have bot the crank shaft hub and the spline shaft. I have learned over the years to replace both or have trouble soon after. As for the hyd oil ALL cylinders closed and yes fill till almost to the top in that vent cap. If you fill it to full oil will seep out that vent cap which does not hurt any thing other then making a mess
