Pulling the lift cover off my 3000. Have removed all the bolts around the outside of the cover but it still won't budge. Have read enough to know to be careful of what bolts to remove and don't want to mess anything up.

My question is does the bolt pointed to in the picture need to come out. Would hate to start forcing the cover off and find out I didn't remove enough bolts.. third party image

Great pics Bob, thanks for the writeup.

What was the cause of the teardown - what was it doing or not doing?

Mine sometimes doesn't like to move when it's cold (the implement. control moves fine) - I'm thinking I've got something clogging my inlet filter.

Managed to fix the link yesterday. I clamped it to a piece of copper plate I had laying around. Used my wire welder to fill the hole then drilled another hole.
After taking another look, I think the link was installed correctly but the position control linkage was so far out of adjustment the link was riding against the lower pin on the cam.

This is crop of one of the photos I shot. You can see the locking nut either wasn't tightened up or it worked loose.

A good metal fab shop could make one easily.

Well looks like I am out of luck on the link and shaft. Google didn't come with anything searching for the Ford part numbers. I can deal with the shaft but that link bothers me. Not sure my welding skills are good enough to fill it and re-drill the hole but looking like I don't have a choice but to try it.

Next was the cam pin, it's worn about 1/4 of the way through. The cam looks pretty good, maybe I won't need to build it back up.

Finally, the cam on the control lever shaft has a pretty good grove worn in it. Not sure if this photo shows it very well.

Next is to see what parts I can still get. Hoping I can find the link and the control shaft. Have no idea how one would fix that link. The cam on the control shaft could be built back up but would rather just replace it.

First item I noticed was most of the carter pins that hold the various pins in place were missing. I did find a few pieces of carter pin down in the sump but who knows what happened to the pins.

2nd item is the wobbled out hole in the link. Looks to me like the link was installed wrong by whoever went into this thing the last time.

Better photo of the link damage..

Thanks guys, goter off, mostly was just stuck. That bolt really didn't need to be removed, it only goes into the lift piston. Removing the aftermarket hydraulic take off block removed the bolts that needed to be removed.

The inside of the housing and filters look really good, but the lift cover linkage is a mess. I don't think I will even go to the trouble of removing and cleaning the filters. This is the best photo I could get of the filters, other than a little of crud on the intake filter they look pretty good to me..

Yes remove it.
There is at least one bolt under the remote cover that has to be removed. It's the 3 or 4 bolts that are more inward of the perimeter that hold the lift cylinder in place.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Take it loose to see if the top will come loose but don't remove the three inter bolts as they do hold the piston to the lift top.

Haven't done mine yet Bob, but it looks to me like it should come out.

Have read someplace some of the bolts hold the lift cylinder on and if they are removed you end up with a mess trying to remove the cover. Hoping someone that has been there will see this and give me a heads up so I don't end up in a pickle.

Today's Featured Article - Recollections of a John Deere GP - by Charlie Cook. I grew up on my dad's 280 acre general farm in Western Michigan. Dad's only tractor when I was very young was the old GP. My first recollection of this tractor was when dad allowed my brother and myself to ride on the tractor with him driving. One of us would sit on the left fender (away from the clutch) and other would sit on the gas tank and hold onto the crankcase breather pipe. ... [Read Article]
