My 3 point hitch arms are stuck in the up position. I drained the hydraulic oil and pulled the filter out and was flushing and cleaning the compartment out and found this bolt in the back side of the case? It is approximately 2 1/-16 long and 3/8 thick at the smooth end and the threads are approximately 1/4. The bolt appears to have just loosened up and fell out because it appears to be in excellent condition? I need help identifying where it came from and what compartment or access area on the tractor I would have tonunbolt to put it back in place? Also, would this be the reason the 3 point hitch arms will not go down?? Is there any other parts (gaskets,o rings ...) that I will need to replace when I put the access covers back on tractor once the repairs are made? Thank You for your help!!
