|Big_T said: (quoted from post at 08:01:19 04/02/13) I have a Ford 3600 and am trying to start into a little restoration. On removing the seat assembly, the rear retaining stud came out completely as the nut was seized. It then became obvious that the stud was also some kind of locating pin (internally). My problem now is that the pin won't go back into place as the lower hole (inside the Lift Cover) has moved forward. I can see down into the hole of the Lift Cover and only the back 1/3 of the lower hole is visible. |
If I force the Yoke of the Draft Control Main Spring Assembly forward a little the bottom hole does move, but not enough to allow the pin/stud to screw down in.
I have the I&T Shop Manual but it doesn't refer to this pin in any way.
The tractor is a European model (made in Antwerp ???).
Does anybody have an idea how to correct this.
try pulling back out on the yoke till it lines up. you may have to break the yoke loose and unscrew it a bit to take the pressure off and then put it back.
Oh, and make sure its not in draft control IIRC. This post was edited by sotxbill at 08:11:30 04/02/13 2 times.
