Ford 340B w/ 3pt backhoe questions
I am looking at a Ford 340B by me for sale recently. I don't know anything about the 340B, I want to know what you guys can tell
me about the 340's. A couple of question I have off the top:
1 - this will sound like a silly question, but I got side tracked when i was checking it out and for got to check if the seat adjustable,
I am a little tall, and I noticed I was a little uncomfortable with the seat being so close to the pedals and steering wheel. I am
pretty sure it is adjustable , most are on tracotrs.
2 - I understand Ford made 3 - 340 models.......340, 340A, 340B, don't know what the difference is.
3 - is it relatively easy to get parts for it.
4 - what is a fair price for it in pretty good condition
5 - is it a reliable machine, engine, transmission , etc. (it also has PTO and 3pt)
6 - are they a 12v or 24 v system on them.
7 - what is the approximate weight of it ( just curious, don't plan on towing it anywhere)
8 - I noticed when it was running ( it is a diesel) every once in a while it would jump or speed up rpm for a brief instant, like all of a
sudden something cleared in the fuel line ( it was a cold day when I tested it, below 25 degress F ). Is that common for them?
I am thinking it might be a dirty injector. ( overall it did run good). Supposedly it is not run very often, maybe it just needs to work in ?
9 - I opened the fuel cap and a seen a steady stream of fuel going into the tank from what I believe was the return line
(it was up by the neck of the tank). Is this normal.
Lastly, their is also a 3pt backhoe, I think by ARPS, anybody ever here of them .
