MF 230 3pt hitch works, bucket does not

I bought a MF 230 with a MF 232 bucket in January and the bucket was working. I got a back blade for it and had issues getting the 3pt hitch to work but finally figured out the valve switch below the seat had to be pointing up to work the 3pt hitch. Now when I put the valve setting back to the original position I can't get the bucket to work. Any ideas?

thanks for the reply. I honestly I don't remember if the is was pointing forward or back originally when the bucket worked, but it doesn't work in either position now. do the draft and position levers need to be in certain position for the hydraulic pump to operate the bucket?

Both need to be fully up and position needs to be in the constant pumping position.

My late cousin's 135 had to have the position lever all the way up for remote operation. There was a 'constant pumping' decal at that position. 230 might be the same?

My remote valve has 3 positions if I remember right. Straight up for 3pt, forward for double acting cylinders and back for single acting. That is how I remember it but don't bet a years salary on my memory.

Today's Featured Article - A Lifetime of David Brown Tractors - by Samuel Kennedy. I was born in 1950 and reared on my family’s 100 acre farm. It was a fairly typical Northern Ireland farm where the main enterprise was dairying but some pigs, poultry and sheep were also kept. Potatoes were grown for sale and oats were grown to be used for cattle and horse feeding. Up to about 1958 the dairy cows were fed hay with some turnips and after that grass silage was the main winter feed. That same year was the last in which flax was grown on the farm. Flax provided the fibre which w ... [Read Article]
