I need help. Have a Ford 841 Power Master. The 3 point will not come down even with motor shut off. Was plowing when it pulled the plow up. Now it will not go down. Thanks for any help. My first Ford.

Sounds like a stuck control valve spool. Remove the PTO shifter cover and look-see if the spool moves along with the quadrant handle. If not, pry it rearward with the quadrant in the lower position.

If it stays up for more than 4 hours, call your Doctor. Or, one of the Brown sisters said to call her.

As JMOR says oil bath risk. Before removing plug block under one arm so that it can drop only 1/2 inch.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeNeed to determine whether it is a hard-locked mechanical problem that is holding it up or hydraulic. Can the arms be lifted any further up? Have you left substantial weight (several hundred pounds) on the arms overnight to see if they will drop any amount? If you do not have auxiliary hydraulics, you have the accessory plate under the front edge of seat, which has a plug in the top of it. If you remove that plug (oil bath risk) and it drops then it is a hydraulic instead of mechanical lock up. This should get you started in finding the cause.

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
