How low should the 3 pt lift arms on a 4 cyl Ford 2000 tractor go? The lowest mine will go(on the non-adjustable side) is 19 1/2 inches. This seems to be too high. If I am correct, and it should go lower, what are the possible causes?

Both sides do adjust the left side requires pulling a pin and turning one end.

post a pic

do the arms drop when off, or in draft mode?

anything mechanically holding them up, as another poster mentioned?

Are the drop arms the right way round? If you look at where the drop arms join the lower links you will find one side of the drop arm has a longer slot than the other. You need the long slot towards the tractor.

as RickB said, and typical is about 8" to 34", but even tire size matters.

The rockshaft arm should be horizontal when the hitch is fully lowered. The rest is determined by whether the tractor has the correct lift rod, leveling box, and/or draft links.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
