mf 175 w mf100 loader

tim white Well, I got my electrical problem fixed. Turned out to be a weak ground. There was enough ground to read continuity on my multimeter, but not enough to work the lights, which I found out after buying four new bulbs!

Now I am starting to actually use the tractor, and I have two questions:

Whenever I shut the tractor off, or step on the clutch, the three point drops to the ground. On my old AC D17 I could shut off the tractor, come back in a few hours, and find the implement still in the air! Is there a way to keep this thing up? I'm not sure if I have the levers set right, I am trying to keep my 7' blade mounted while I am using the loader to haul gravel.

Also, I think I have a MF100 loader, but the lift is only one way, i.e. power up, gravity down. The bucket is two way, and I seem to have an unused connection on the back for another hose. Is it possible to switch the cylinders?

Thanks for the help


tim white Well, I have found some numbers on the loader.

The cylinders on the sides are A-40019-4C

The bucket is 1400-288-N1

On the base of the loader, where it attaches to the tractor frame is 1402-841N

The cylinders are 3" dia and 42" long, with 1 1/2" rods. It looks like the top of the cylinder, where the rod comes out, is a big cap that unscrews (maybe to get in to replace seals?)

Any help on this would be really appreciated.
