No lift: chapter 3

well, I'm into this job for about $700 now, figuring oil and new pump and relief valve. I finally got nice oil flowing from the pump bleeder, where there was none before. I replaced the seals on both ends of the suction manifold, and installed the pump according to instructions, using two gaskets to get a bit of backlash in the drive gear. Filled all three housings with new oil, fired her up, and no lift! The arms are dead as doornails. Guess I need to do surgery to the pedestal, eh? Any suggestions? Thanks guys!

Had same problem--found check valve spring broke.
Replaced spring-everything ok now.

Your unload valve in the lift cylinder is stuck in the dump posistion. Remove lift cover, pull out unload valve plug with a slide hammer(plug with threaded end), remove unload valve, clean it and the bore, replace o-ring, and reassemble. Unload valve is located next to main control valve, parallel to it. Cause of above mentioned problem? Sludgy oil and/or sitting around too long. P.S. I'm assuming we're talking about a 600-900 series or NAA tractor here.

Bern, sorry for my abruptness....yes, it's a 640, and it DID have sludgy oil, and was sitting. I'm after the stubborn valve tomorrow at first light,...well, maybe at 9-ish...

Bern, wow, that's the sort of answer I was after! Now I feel like I approached this job backwards. I tried to go after the simplest things first.
Stay tuned.....nonstop coverage continues! Thank you Bern!

Today's Featured Article - Tractor Traction - by Chris Pratt. Our first bout with traction problems came when cultivatin with our Massey-Harris Pony. Up till then, this tractor had been running a corn grinder and pulling a trailer. It had new unfilled rear tires and no wheel weights. The garden was already sprouting when we hooked up the mid-mount shovel cultivators to the Pony. The seed bed was soft enough that the rear end would spin and slowly work its way to the downhill side of the gardens slight incline. From this, we learned our lesson sinc ... [Read Article]
