Fordson Dexta Hydraulic problems

Posted by Jacob Hudson W on July 29, 2013 at 09:10:24 from (

I bought a 1962 Fordson Dexta a few weeks ago and its the first one i have bought but i have had multiple fords. The tractor has a forklift that is built by the Edwards company on it.

On the top cover there was a different plate that was put on for the forklift. The takes the pressure and runs it to a 3 spool valve on the forklift to run the mast up and down and the side shift, also the 3 point arms that come out of the top cover run the mast tilt. . I want to use the tractor as a 3 point tractor.

I took the forklift off and i figured that if i just took the pressure and put it to where the valve from the forklift out pressure to bring up the 3 point for the mast tilt, well this did not work because as soon as i stated the tractor the 3 point came up but has not control. When i say no control i mean that no matter where the 3 point control lever is is will go all the way up and will not go down unless you take the plate off the top cover and relieve the oil pressure that way.

Does anyone have any info as to what i need to do to make this tractor work correctly? It has stumped me. Thanks for you help.
