Sinking 3pt Lift

I am needing some help with my 3pt lift. It has no problem when lifting light weight implements such as a hay lift (for round bales). The problem seems to be when I attach heavier implements or try to pick up round bales. The implements that I am using are from a 425 Ford Workmaster that I had before the 65 and did not have any problems with it, so I wouldn't think that the 65 would have any problem. I'll try to attach some pictures and /or videos to help. I am hoping that it will be something minor/simple that I can work on instead of having to put it in the shop.Any help is greatly appreciated.

Model: MF-65 w/ Multi-Power

Engine: Perkins Diesel

Year: 1964

S/N: CNDW 705874

F.Y.I. When the hydraulic valve is pushed forward, the lift goes down and when the valve is pulled back, the lift comes up.

the 3 point should be controlled by the 2 levers between the seat and fender one is draft the other is position, the 2 in front of the seat are remotes that are supplied by the 3 point lift pump, only the remotes or 3 point control can be supplied at one time,if the remote control is raising the 3 point up and down something is set wrong or the remote valve has a problem

According to my manual on the auxiliary hydraulics the #1 valve controls the three point lift. You can set the levers on the side of the seat to constant pumping and use the aux. valve or lock the aux. valve in the up position and use the hydra levers beside the seat. I bought a mf65 with the aux. valves but it has a bad pump in it. I want to take the valves off of it and put on my mf50. I just haven't done it yet. I do need to get it done and then I can get a better understanding of it.

First of all you could have a problem in the control spring assembly. That's the unit inside the hydraulic cover where you attach the top link. To test this you will see the three lugs on the rear of the centre casing. Using a bolt or suitable bar fit a chain from these lugs to the top link point on your bale carrier. You are by-passing the top link mechanism. You may find that it will lift OK. If so let us know and we'll take you through the adjustment procedure or you will be able to find it on here.
