Hi Jason

Will do! The one I took off must have had about 1/2 inch freeplay and of course it was not doing its job at all.

The other potential problem I have is that the hydraulics had just completely packed up whereas it was lifting and dropping before. Is there anything obvious I can check for before I replace the draft control assembly and put it all back together?
Thanks for your help and advice

 Re: T20 Draft Control Spring/Plunger question in reply to MickW, 09-03-2012 01:04:51 can drain a few gallons of oil out of the hydraulic system and then remove the round cover with the dipstick where you check the hydraulic oil and take a look inside and see what's happening. First check that the control valve linkage is working back and forth when you move the draft control lever beside the seat. Then check to see that the control valve itself is in the linkage. It's in the very bottom of the pump so you won't be able to see it unless you completely drain the hydraulic sump...but you can feel for it. The end of it where it hooks into the linkage is T shaped. If you don't completely drain the hydraulic system then you can crank the tractor and look inside for leaks in the system. Check the linkages first because even with the spring out of adjustment it should still lift and lower some. Did you try to tighten plunger before this happened?
