    Default MF 2310

    I have a Massey Ferguson 2310 and am having problems with the backhoe. I can swing the boom to the left but it won't swing right. The outriggers go down but won't go up. I have three lins that hook up to the backhoe, marked red, blue and yellow. If I switch the lines and connect the red to blue and blue to red I can operate the backhoe, but it makes noise like a relief valve is on. Does anyone have an idea what might be happening?

    Rob, how did you make out? There are a number of threads on this... apparently it's not that uncommon to have the hoses incorrectly color coded. I'd also check to make sure that none of the other controls --like the 3-point hitch control-- is stuck in some position other than neutral. WBB

    I didn't switch lines and the trouble started. I did it one other time and I switched the lines to return the hoe to travel position. then I switched them back and it was fine for a long time. Someone else told me it could be a faulty connector on one of the lines

    That would be a first.

    You could test that by removing the connectors and switching them to different lines. Then, see if the problem is effected.

    Just don't get confused about which line is which.

    I am absoutley with IrvingJ---a lot of times the 3 point control lever on the right gets pushed or pulled with your right leg or knee and will definitrly affect all the other hydraulics on the machine.
