    67PLY,
    I think you are talking about the indicator rod. As the rod runs back up the loader arm it should pass thru a bracket called the guide. There is a sharp bend in the indicator rod and it can be adjusted so when this bend is at the guide the bucket will be level. There are some loaders - usually on row crop tractors - that will have an extra rod & brackets on the top of the loader arm - this has to do with keeping the bucket level at all times. This is the type of FEL my neighbor has on his Versatile MFWD 305.

    Are you talking about the 4 bar linkage?

    Then yes it helps increase the range of travel of the bucket. Depending on how the link is designed it can also give additional force during some range of stroke

    I really do not know what the arrangement on his FEL is called. I know when he puts on the bale spear it will lift the round bales all the way to the top of the stack without needing constant adjustment to keep them level. You talk about fun seat time. This week and all of next week I'm getting to help him in his custom cutting and harvesting. I'm getting to drive the big Versatile.

    Looks like self-leveling as well as the extra linkage for enhanced bucket control.

    Jim,

    I haven't forgotten the original question. Its just that I'm not very handy manipulating the pics I've got in my files. This pic shows the indicator rod running up the right arm of the loader. I think that's what you are asking about.

    If your talking about the parts in xring's picture, which I'm fairly sure you are, then yes they increase the buckets range of motion.

    "Self leveling" is on some loaders. I don't like it because it's jerky, moving some distance then automatically adjusting the bucket. At least on my B21, it's not a continuous adjustment.
