I have a 69 Ford 4000, "Big Blue".
The Position Lever for the 3pt Hitch very hard to move, not like it's rust bound, but something internally ?
PTO and TPH work, if you can get the lever up and "lock it in place" with the nut it will hold, and if you lower it goes down. (though it feels not good to push it with so much force all the way down). I managed to lock it in place and brush hog for 2-3 hours, with no issues, but it's too low and I don't seem to have the fine control of getting it too the height I want.
I've had for 10 years, kept inside, normal issues for a 50 year old machine.
Since I'd never changed fluids since I got her, I changed the rear fluid and put new, it still looked new like I had put in 10 years ago, this had no effect on it.
What am I looking at for tearing into this ?
Just a friction disk ?
and is that just taking the lever out and replacing, I can't seem to find a good procedure for that ?
Any help is appreciated, as I'm not sure if my local NHD will still service this machine anymore, when I bought 10 years ago they came out and replaced the PTO seal for me, so they might.
