My 245 has the hydraulic selector (not sure what it's really called) on top of the transmission, in front of the seat, between your legs. It has a control on it that will allow either the 3 point to function or run hydraulic outlets when the valve is switched. I know it will only work one or the other, not both at the same time. When I bought the tractor the original owner kept the loader and all of the controls etc. back to this "selector". I have had the tractor for about 15 years and it's still one of my favorites. I now have a couple of implements that utilize hydraulics for operation, a NH haybine which requires to hoses and a tedder that uses only one line. Currently I use my JD to run these and it works fine but I'd like to be able to use the MF also. So, I need to set it up with all of the hydraulic "stuff" it needs. I will need 2 hoses that run from the "selector" to the "control and 2 hoses that run from the control to the hydraulic outlets that the implement connects to. What I don't know is what type of control I should get. My absolute preference is to have a control and all the stuff that is correct for this model of tractor, with it mounted in the "factory" location. I know that's probably kind of crazy but I do like stuff that is as original as possible. Is there place that would have the used stuff that I'm looking for? If so, I'd appreciate knowing what it's all called so I can ask for and hopefully get the stuff I need. If someone has a picture of the correct stuff mounted on a tractor I'd sure like that as well. Hope to have this done in time for hay season next year. It's months out but I seem to not get stuff like this done until the night before so I'm trying to be a little more proactive. We'll see how that goes!

I have a 235, I don't think mine is factory but it works, Have one line coming across from the sector valve to what I think is a spool valve,(located on the left side and is hard piped with a return). The spool has two lines going to the quick connects. Hope yours makes more pressure than mine, sometimes it has a hard time lifting big things.

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]
