: PLACE IT STILLS DOES NOT LIFT RIGHT, THE LAST TIME WAS LAST WEEK AND
: THEY SAID A SMALL METAL SHAVING WAS ON ONE OF THE PUMP SHAFTS CAUSING IT TO NOT
: LIFT RIGHT??? ANY HELP ON SOLVING THIS PROBLEM WOULD BE A GREAT HELP.
I am assuming the three point hitch is what is not lifting properly, also assuming the offending shaving has been removed from the pump shaft. A " does not lift right problem" is difficult to diagnose via an internet connection. The three point lift is undoubtedly the most complex system on your tractor and proper operation is dependent on
1. Not having internal leakage from lift cylinder piston-pump releif valve-piping-etc.
2. Internal lift linkage free of excessive wear-reasonably rust free-no broken springs or bent and binding components. I woulld suggest following the troubleshooting steps in a 9N repair manual.
It could possibly be another small shaving lodged in the relief valve on the rear of the pump.
