    The only levers I have on the right of the seat are the 3pt hitch draft levers. Do you have levers for hydraulics in front of the seat mounted to the tranny? If not what do you have attached to that area going to your loader levers? This would help clarify. Usually on the MF165 one of the remote levers will need to be in center position to work other hydraulics. Otherwise they may be sharing hydraulic pressure or don't get any at all.

    We use a 285 MF with a setup like yours and one of those levers on the left side, forgot which, has to be tied back with a bungee cord on ours. I think it is the draft control lever. Ken Sweet
