Question About A 1973 Ford 5200 Hydraulics

I have a Ford 5200 ( like a 5000) just a row crop with a cab. Trying to set it up for a 7' NH snowblower. When I put the top link on the top hole of the top-link, the 3 pt will not raise. I put the top-link in the second or bottom hole the 3 pt of the top-link, the 3 pt lifts just fine. What would cause this problem?

Another problem I have is with the hydraulic remote valve. I have two ports and one control. I connect the hoses for the spout, the spout only turns one way. Swap the hoses it will move the opposite way but not the other way. I'll have to pull the floor out of the cab to get at the valve.

I was told that I have the wrong remote valve. Any ideas for these questions?

Just a follow-up on the Ford 5200 hydraulics. I will mount the third arm in the bottom hole of the top-link and it works just fine.

Problem #2 with the remote valve only going one direction, there is a screw on the front of the remote valve with a screw-driver slot and a 7/16" wrench will also work. I turned that screw in and now I have power to both hydraulic hoses.

Every thing is working like it should. Thanks guys.

On first question sound like its in draft control. 5000 has sencing on top link pushing or pulling. As JMOR says the valve may be set for one way. Have to pull cover in floor, either knob or screw on valve changes it.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to seeI do not know the hyd control valve on your tractor, but some have a screw or setting mechanism to make them behave as needed for one-way cylinder and set another way to behave as needed for two-way cylinders. Sounds like yours is configured for one-way , but needs to be for two-way.

Today's Featured Article - Antique Tractor Wiring Basics - by Curtis von Fange. One of the most neglected parts of old tractors is the wiring. After sitting in the elements for half a century or more much equipment wiring has deteriorated to sparsely covered strands of copper or other metal. Plastic insulation has cracked, mice have eaten through the older clothed style coverings and the exposed wires have reacted to winter moisture and salts by turning blue and powdery. Terminal ends have corroded, rusted or just plain evaporated away. Aged wires not only keep an engin ... [Read Article]
