    Default BH controls

    My brother in law wants to pass on to me (well, I guess $1,000 is not really passing it on) a 1962 Ford 600 with loader and backhoe. It's one ugly tractor but has served him well, until recently.
    The loader and BH controls work ok but occasionally (seems more often now) the BH bucket will not curl. Playing with the control handle will sometimes get it to work (unless it's a coincidence). Would I be correct in assuming that the problem lies with the BH control handles? The outriggers and other BH functions work correctly, it's just the bucket curl.
    I have a BX2200 and was looking to upgrade to the BX22 for the backhoe but this Ford tractor may fill the bill. If the problem is within the handle assembly is that something that can readily (parts) be repair/rebuilt? It looks fairly easy to detach the assembly. Any ideas where (in NY area) that would/could handle this? Thanks.

    Yep defitinitely check out the linkage where the handle attaches to the valve body. Those are pretty small pins and 40 years of play does tend to wear them out.

    Do you think it would be more of a hardware attachment problem than possibly fluid bleeding past a spool valve (or whatever it uses)? I tend to think of the worst when it comes to reasoning why something is not working although most time it is something smaller. I guess I'm just not that optimistic when it comes to something I have that is not working. Thanks.

    I think that if it were leaking past the spool valve you would see the bucket slowly settle open while it is parked and shut off.
