Well, I FINALLY got this old 2NRunning. I'm guessing it needs an air filter so it will run without the chock halfway out!! However, I can't seem to get the lift to work. How do I check the hydraulic oil on this thing?? And where do I fill it? Please, Pics are worth a thousand words! According to the operator's manual there's a dipstick for that but not on THIS tractor! Any assistance would be greatly and humble appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!!

Thanks for all the info, guys. I did have the forethought to purchase a shop manual and an owners manual from this site. The shop manual was not nearly as useful for what I'm doing as the owners manual!! I don't have the luxury of an indoor shop or a chain hoist for servicing as it seems a lot of you do. But, having really been in the dark on "tractor mechaniking", you guys have bright points of light in that dark. For that I thank you. I will post again when I find the issue. When I need assistance, I'm not shy. I know my limitations!

With engine running at Idle.........."DO NOT PLACE ANYTHING" through inspection port when Tractor is running!!!! You shall loose what ever part of your body you place through the Inspection PORT!!

Take note,is HYDRAULIC PUMP rotating / turning???? Is PTO shaft TURNING???

IF NOT to the above, then possibly Item # 7 IS NOT Engauged with Item # 8...

there are two round inspections plates on the tractor. the one on the left has the PTO engagement lever in it. the one on the right normally has a dipstick. in lieu of that, u can try removing either of the lowest bolts on either plate. when it starts pouring out of that hole, it's full.

add fluid slowly. the trans, hydraulics, and rear end all share the same sump. it can take a while to percolate thru, don't be in a hurry and discover it's overfilled. fill point on top of trans by shifter i'm thinking :)

Today's Featured Article - Grain Threshing in the Early 40's - by Jerry D. Coleman. How many of you can sit there and say that you have plowed with a mule? Well I would say not many, but maybe a few. This story is about the day my Grandfather Brown (true name) decided along with my parents to purchase a new Ford tractor. It wasn't really new except to us. The year was about 1967 and my father found a good used Ford 601 tractor to use on the farm instead of "Bob", our old mule. Now my grandfather had had this mule since the mid 40's and he was getting some age on him. S ... [Read Article]
