5600 ford lift arms locked in up position

RANDY

Ed Howdy Randy, welcome to the SSB tractor forum.

If your lift arms are stuck in the up position, and do not drift down overnight, you most likely have your lift piston wedged in the lift cylinder. Mechanically stuck.

You will have to pull the lift cover to make repairs. Heavy....you will need help to lift it, or an overhead winch.

While you are in there, service the unloader valve and replace the cam follower pin (usually worn badly). Put a rebuild/reseal kit in it.

Get a shop/service manual for your tractor and learn what you have to do before pulling the lift cover. SSB, sponsor of this forum, has manuals, or you can go to the internet or ebay.

When you are finished, go through a calibration procedure to get everything set up correctly. Before buttoning it back up.
