Good afternoon. Asking for some guidance here. This is my first post so here it goes:
I have a 960 tractor that has a 3 point that will not lift weight. It won't lift me, 230 lbs, but will lift slow with no weight. I have checked the fluid level, changed the fluid, primed the pump and nothing.
Along with this I also have a ford front loader that has a remote valve on top of the hydraulic system. I worked great, but since the 3 point problem it now will not lift the loader. The bucket will operate though.
I have not pulled the inspection plate or tested pressure. I have suspicions that is might have something to do with the draft control or week pump, but it happened quickly.
I do look thru the fill hole and do not see oil leaking or anything unusual, but I am not familiar with this so I wouldn't really know.
This tractor has a side pump at the rear of the engine.
Any suggestions are appreciated. I have the tractor ready to pull off the top of the housing and inspection cover but thought I would ask first before I did that. Thank you!!
