Rebuilding the lift on my 71 3000 and just finished the two lift adjustments as outlined in the IT manual but not real confident they are correct.
First adjustment is in Draft control and you adjust the turnbuckle. The IT manual says for current model to set the control valve to 0.030 measured from the end of the bushing. I could barely get it to 0.2 which is listed for early models and then I'm not sure how many threads are actually engaged in the plunger. If I try to set it at 0.03 I run out of threads.
Next is the position control, same deal I am right at the end of the threads on the position control rod and couldn't quite get to 0.2, something close to 0.28
Checked and double checked the requirements for draft control lever, quadrant and lift arm positions and am reasonably sure they were set properly for each adjustment.
Guess my question is, does this seem right for 45 years of wear on the linkage or any ideas on what I may be doing wrong?
