The factory three point hitch raised all the way up and now wont' lower. It only had about two hundred pounds on it, but I dont want to add weight to try to force it down and break something. I hope it to be a valve in an easy location to replace. Any ideas what could be wrong?

Make sure your draft control lever isn't in the extreme light position.If the lever is past the second mark from the end this will not allow it to lower

What you need to check is the arm that goes to the load control shaft. To check this take off the 3rd link cover and look on the right side of the case. There is an arm that comes up from the bottomof the case along side of the PTO. And there is an other spring loaded arm that comes down from the top. Check to see if the top arm is to the back of the lower arm. The spring loaded arm slips past the other arm and the 3pt will not go down. To get the arm back. I take a rope and go around the top arm and get someone to help you pry the lower arm over and pull the upper arm by . If you have any questions email me

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: Electronic Ignition - by Staff. Oil, for example has come a long way in the last 50 years and I don't use anything but the latest API grade available. I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
