    Default farmall m hydraulic pump problems

    Well, my farmall m is having hydraulic problems, and i just dont exactly know what to do, so im asking your guyss help. Whenever i go to put up pressure it just makes a noise and it tries to pick it up but it wont. when it's cold it does alright, not like i think it should. when it gets to operating temp. it wont do anything. (its a belly pump, and all i was trying to pick up was a v-hay rake, i would think it would do that)
    Thanks in advance,
    Garrett

    Put a 3000lb gauge in the line running to the rake and read the pressure while the attempt is made at lifting the rake.
    That belly pump relief pops off at 650 psi or so. Would not surprise me in the least if that is not enough to raise the rake.
    We have too much gun control.
    What we need is more idiot control.

    If the relief is within specs., then sounds like a larger diameter cylinder would be the least expensive route to go.

    Garret your pump should pick up your rake sounds like your pump might be wore out because when it gets warm it does nothing. I used to have 3 farmall M tractors and a big rake and mine would pick up with no problem. If you decide replacement is the way to go might i suggest BATES CORP. or WENGERS of myerstown PA as source for good new,used,and rebuilt parts Good Luck and remember dont farm part of the way FARMALL the way.
