    Default Re: Ford 3500 backhoe

    I recently purchased a 1975 ford 3500 diesel tractor witht he front end loader and backhoe attachments! The seller told me the backhoe can be removed by undoing the large threaded rods in back holding the backhe down (and of course undoing hydraulic lines) however every time I try to do it as soon as it lifts off the tractor it starts to tip over???? Also when using the backhoe once it has been used for awhile it wont rotate back to center behind the tractor! I assume one of the 2 round cylinders located at back of tractor below loader is probably bypassing! Any help on either of these issues would be appreciated!

    easy to check for a bypass on a DA cyl by undoing the no pressurized hose while pressurizing the othr, and see if you get flowthru...

    thanks! Finally got backhoe off tractor but will back up to it and hook hoses up and check them out! I suspect I will get flow in both but probably weaker in one than the other I would suspect!

    I am not sure what cylinders you are talking about? Could you clarify?

    And what is causing it to want to tip over?? The cylinder not holding, or you dont have it balanced?

    Because I believe you have to extend the boom and put the bucket on the ground, and then lift the hoe out of the saddles with the outriggers. Then drive away and unhood the lines.

    those swing cylinders or single action just a pulling motion conected to a chain that pulls the hoe around make sure the chain is not broken or came a lose
