    Default ford 3000 three point

    I have a ford 3000 with a three point that will raise all the way to the top even though the lever is only 3/4 of the way up but below that works properly and no the draft control is not on. any help will be greatly appreciated

    A few more details will help. I am not really familiar with that model, but more details may help others...

    First, did it just start doing it all of the sudden, or has it been that way?

    Second, is this only with an implement on, no implement, or all of the time??

    Third, when it goes all of the way up, and you move the lever beyond 3/4 to full up, does it sound like it is still trying to raise and making the pump go into relief?? or is it just nothing??

    Could be something as simple as a quadrant adjustment, or it could be something screwed up inside.

    It has been doing it since i bought it last winter. it does it with or without an implement and it does it all the time. and no ot does not sound like the pump is still trying to lift any higher it doesent do anything.

    without pulling the lift cover you may never know. might be something as simple as someone welded up the cam follower pin or cam and exagerated it so that it reaches thrshold before the lever is up.

    the piston unloads / turns off the hyds flow when it reaches stroke via linkage... so since you do not hear pump / relief strain. THAT is working fine.

    Pull the cover and investigate, these tractors are simple.
