Hi I am headed out to a friends property this weekend to check over the 3 point issue on his tractor - he sent me a picture today -it is a Fordson power Major - I do not have a manual yet since I just found out the model today -he says that it used to lift the front wheels of the tractor off the ground when lifting round bales with a 3 point hay spear. Now the 3 point won"t lift at all. I am new to these tractors. What preliminary tests can I do before getting a manual? Are there relief valve/ unloading valves that I can remove to check spring condition? location? any pressure test ports? I have done some research on line. I will need to get a service manual, but I want to check the tractor over first to make sure I get one for the right model. Where is the serial number located ? what age /years were these produced?

Check the fluid level in the rear end as the pump is located there.

Also check the lever for the "qualitrol" to make sure it is the draftposition.

You can obtain a free manual dowload from "fordson" on the net.

Make sure the front PTO lever is engaged.
It is located near the clutch.
