1900 lift arm angle

Lil Hud I recently acquired a Ford 1900. Some one has had the rear lift arms off and re-installed them with one at a much different angle than the other. Could someone please let me know what the they should be set at? Either the angle at full up or down position.
BigT Howdy Lil Hud, welcome to the SSB tractor forum.

The lift arms and the lift shaft have "master splines" (one wide spline), which means they can go on only one way. You have either a bent arm or a twisted shaft.

BigT If you need to get used parts, go to In their "dismantled machines section, they have 22ea. Ford 1900's listed in salvage. Choose a boneyard near you.
Lil Hud My shaft and arms do not have master splines. Evenly spaced splines all the way around. The maintenance manual that I have even states that arms and shaft need to be marked before disassembly to ensure correct alignment. So I still need what angle to set the arms at.
sixbales I obtained the following from a guy named Mark on the yt forum:

"From a horizontal line the arms should be installed to obtain 13 degrees below horizontal when all the way down and 52 degrees above horizontal when all the way up."


Lil Hud Thank you so much. One arm is over 10 degrees off form the other and when all the way down the lowest arm almost hits the rollover bracket and the lower links rest on the ground. Now to break the rust loose. That can always be fun. Thanks again.
