Correct Larry. Actually, I never moved the draft/position lever, it's still in position mode. Apologies to old, I should have been clearer in my earlier reply. :oops:

I didn't think about the draft/position lever until I read old's post, but I had already parked the tractor by then and was back indoors. I did move the lift control lever up and down several times while I was using the FEL, but it didn't make any difference. I left the lift control lever in the down position when I put the tractor away about 11:30. At 4pm, I decided to take a look when I was tossing a tennis ball for my yellow lab, and lo and behold, the arms were down.

Now, this brings up a new question. Is it better to leave the lift arms down, mid-way, or up when the tractor is parked? If the arms got stuck while up would they also get stuck when down? I park it in my shop, and cannot get through the 8' door with the back blade (also 8') attached, so it's always put away without an implement. I have been parking it with the arms up, but this discussion now has me wondering if full down is the better option.

Sure appreciate the replies. When warm, dry weather returns to eastern WA, I'll pull the topdeck and give it thorough cleaning, don't suppose it will hurt a thing to do that. Maybe I'll fix my power steering (separate and much more involved issue) while I'm at it. :wink:
