641 lift lever travel is limited. Lift works ok but due to compact length of travel, changes are sensitive. Area between yellow lines illustrate full up and down. How can I increase lever travel through out more of the quadrant. Thanks

Usually (almost always) your symptoms are caused by a worn cam follower pin and or cam.

Such can be fixed by removing the lift cover, replacing the cam follower pin and readjusting the draft and position control adjustments.

This is also an opportune time to thoroughly clean the hydraulic sump and replace the oil.

Dean, if I felt the need to tear into the lift, what would I adjust to expand the range of the touch control lever? The control valve turnbuckle or the control arm rod?

I'm not Dean either but the best strategy if you are going to dig in is to get an I&T shop manual FO20 and carefully follow the adjustment procedures. They have lift adjustment procedures that don't require Ford's specialized tools and gauges. Also replace the cam follower pin, if worn, before adjusting (that's most likely the root of your problem).

Bingo, Andy.

Replace the cam follower pin first.

Jessie I wont to give ya something to think about when someone post there lift won't go full up you can remove the outer retainer on the quadrant to increase leaver travel. The quadrant is the limiter on a worn/linkage issue... wink wink....

Why would you want to myself I don't care to bend over and prefer it near at at the top... Your range looks good to me...

Do you mean that you can not physically move the Touch Control lever except between your marked yellow lines OR that it is only within this region that the lift responds and that when lever is above upper mark lift is full up and below bottom mark the lift is fully lowered? If it is the latter, that is normal, within limits. They all have a limited range above & below which lift is fully up or lowered & no variable control in the upper & lower travel of Touch Control lever. How narrow the range of variable control does depend on wear & adjustments.

Today's Featured Article - Two-Brush Generators - by Chris Pratt. Whether for product liability or because the aftermarket parts and labor business is lucrative, this concept is disturbingly prevalent. Fortunately when you step into your shop and make that jump 50 years back in time to work with your old tractor, this concept goes out the window. Even so, when it comes to the charging system, people quickly revert to this idea and start replacing the major components one at a time until it works. The reason you don't find any decals in your replacement set wit ... [Read Article]
