The lift handle on my AC 5040 is about rusted apart so i have a new one coming, question is how does it come off?? i removed the nut and washer at the quadrant but it will not budge!! i even tried pushing against it with a couple screwdrivers, anyone know what i need to do?

Maybe soak in a good penetration oil like KROIL for a day or two, then tap on it while under tension attempting to pull it off as someone else here described earlier.

Yes, it appears that the shaft that the lever mounts to is tapered and has a half-moon key Item 23, M4x4x10, so don't loose it.

If there's room, you could use a brass drift & small hammer to pop the end of the shaft.
It would help alot if you had extra hands to pry on the lever like you had attempted while doing this.

Other than that, some kind of puller; again if there's room

It finally moved, i used a couple thick chisels at the top and bottom and it came loose. i put anti seize on the new one so it will be easier next time!!

can you be more specific about which handle ?
or take a pic of what you're working on?

Have you tried looking at the AGCO Parts Book (online) ?
If not, go to the AGCO Parts Books site, type in 5040, then go to
Hydraulic Systems - Lift Systems, Lift Control Outer Page 232 should come up. Also look at Page 234

Just click on VIEW BOOKS under GUEST USER

The 3 point hitch handle, i've looked in the parts book but didn't help much, it does show a woodruff key followed by a spring and a cup. It must be a tapered fit??

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
