3 point strangeness

Ford 2000 3 cyl. Running box blade - heavy. In position control.
When it really starts to dig, it will force/push the 3 point lever down to the stop. i.e. it will not hold position. I noticed on the top 3-point connection, between the coil spring and the cover there should be a felt spacer and a washer or seal? At least that is what I see on the parts diagram. Mine is missing and there is a 1/2 in gap there. Could that be causing the top link to shove/slam the rod in under a heavy dig (pivots the box blade) and somehow forcing the internal cylinder to push the lever down?
Not sure I am describing this right. I can take some pics.

Got the 3-point top-link mount rebuilt. Here is a picture of the new parts - driver seat, seal and fiber washer, and what was left of the old parts. The seat had completely disintegrated and the coil spring was just bouncing around. third party image

Parts finally showed up and I got it tore down. Found out that the driver seat had disintegrated. This is a part that has a flange on the end and the felt washer rides on it. On mine, the flange had cracked completely off and the driver was not resisting pressure from the three point. Got a new one on order. Will post some before and after pics when I get the new one.
Thankfully, you can still get these odd parts from New Holland. Kudos to a great tractor and a great parts network!

if the draft spring is too loose, when under load, it will act up and override the position lever. In your case, its making the position lever fall, if I read this correctly. In a lot of cases it will make the tractor draft when it should be steady...in the position mode.

Thanks guys, will check both. I will get the parts for the draft spring then adjust. I have a ford manual.
Will also look at the cork tension-er on the lever to see what that looks like

Thanks much!

John

As JMOR indicated, there should be a cork disk beneath the touch control lever to hold it in position.

Also the draft sensor shaft requires a felt washer to help keep out dust and water out of the lift chest. Draft spring is tensioned correctly when you can rotate the spring with just your thumb and forefinger.

There should not be that much space on the draft spring. Do you have a manual? There's an adjustment.
