I am having a problem with the sensing link on my 1070. When I bought the tractor the c shaped part that goes over the crossbar was broken in half. I found a good used one and I took off the left lift arm and the left wishbone spring and slid it over the cross bar then put the left side back together. Any way when I was tightning the bolt on the back side of the c shaped piece I broke it in half also.

My questions are:

1. Do I have to the lift arm and spring and other items off to put the c shaped part on or can I tap it over the cross shaft?

2. If i am unable to find a decent used one would you weld it back to gether and use it?

Thanks for your input,

It will slide over the shaft and you DO NOT tighten the set screw any more than enough to keep the C clamp on the shaft. You also have to adjust the length of the rod and pull back on it rotating the vertical shaft that extends to the top of the tranny connected to the linkage and controle valve so the DOM will operate when the wishbone springs are streached under load. We installed the sholder bolt in the eye of the rod last while rotating the vertical shaft with large pliers You need a service manual, my friend.

You don't tighten that set screw plumb tight. You just have it touch and tighten the locknut so it doesn't back out!! It only rides in that groove to keep sensing link centered!!

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
