|jerry troxell|| The 3pt. lift on my 601 lifts alright but then begins to drop. The only way to stop it is to hold the draft control lever up. As soon as I let go it begins dropping down and will bottom out within 10 seconds or so.
I paid the local Ford/New Holland shop $700 two years ago dollars to overhaul the hydraulics.
They began acting up soon after the work. There is oil leaking around the pto shaft.
I ordered a repair kit that appears to be almost
all O-rings. Am i on the right track?
|JAson||Tell me if I am wroung hardcore ford guys but I thought there was a adjument on those control units. Some type of drat control.
|TomG||I'd check linkage adjustments before doing anything else. I think that draft control rods are generally adjustable, and tension on the quadrant lever also is adjustable. Quadrant lever tension may be the culprit, but I'd find a procedure for adjusting the rod as well.
|Dan||I just experienced the same thing with an 8N. There is a safety valve on the hydraulic pump that blew out. You can get one from your local tractor dealer or send for it. If you have a parts manual, you should be able to ID it, if the pump systems are comparable. It cost about $24 for the part. You have to drain all the oil out of the belly to get to it. Just screw out the old one and insert the new one. If its not that, then you may have valve problems or a cracked ram, which are disapating the pressure.
