    Default FEL HELP/BENT FRAME?

    I have an AG TECH Quick Tach FEL on my 1710 4wd Ford
    The left side of the bucket seems higher than the right side,when the bucket sits on level ground about 2 inches.Will this be a pain to fix ? The left cylinder does not seem to retract as far as the right cylinder . The frame doesn't really look bent though,any suggestions

    Before you do anything check the air in your tires mainly your rears and make sure the pressure is the same. This problem came up a while ago and thats all it was.

    Bart, it does sound like something is bent. Either the uprights on the tractor, the loader arms or the "torque tube" that connects the two arms. Good news is it probably isn't a big deal. A decent body/frame shop could probably take some measurements, figure out what's bent and straighten it though if it were me I'd just get used to it as is [img]/w3tcompact/icons/smile.gif[/img]

    Had a similiar problem but was higher on the left side. Frame was not bent but the FEL subframe was loose and the right side was hanging down [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img]. Bought the new bolts to replace those that were gone and the loader is straight again.

    Don't expect this would be your issue since "the cylinder on the left does not seem to retract as far" but thought it would be worth while tossing out as an easy item to check.

    I'm not familiar with this brand but, if it is the style that to remove it you have to loosen a nut on each side and let the flap drop, then it just may have been put on on unlevel ground. I would first detach it and reattach it before doing anything drastic.
