I just purchased an 661 ford tractor, not sure if this is the right forum, Everything on the tractor works with the exception of the hydraulics. The lever that controls the hydraulics will not move. It is like it is locked up. Now when i push the float control down the hydraulics go down all the way. The lever that controls the hydraulics will raise them up if i pull hard on the lever. Once i release the lever the hydraulics go down. Have watched videos on top plate removal, they are all for the 2,8,9N. Need some advise as to what to try next. Thanks

Most likely the shaft that touch control lever attaches to is rusted to the inside of the tube (part of quadrant assy) that it passes through. I had one so rusted that I had to hammer it out.

Does it move OK with the tractor turned off?

I di not get power steering, did not even know they made it for tractors back then. The touch control lever will not move, it is stuck up. With the draft lever in the draft position it will go down. I have pulled the top off the hydraulics and everything looks right.

Except for the hydraulic pump, the lift ststem on the later Fords - up through 1975 - are about the same as an 8N.
But I'm unclear as to what you are explaining.
Maybe if we start with some standard terminology it will help.
Ford called the lift handle - the one in the quadrant on the right side, the "Touch Control" lever. The little lever under your right thigh is called the Draft/Position Control" lever.
Maybe if you could rephrase your post using those terms it would help us understand.
Welcome to YT by the way. This website is the best on the entire internet for info on all the old Fords and many other brands besides. A 661 is a great small tractor. Nice size, very nimble, plenty of power and not nearly as thirsty fuel wise as its bigger sister the 861. Not only does it have Live Hydraulics, it has Live PTO as well. Did you manage to get one with optional Power Steering? Would be sweet if you did.
