So I brought back my dad's old 1370 to work on and maybe get so use out of. It has been sitting for 5 years. The issues he was having with it when he parked it were the 3 point was locked in the up position and it had problems steering to the right. Someone told him on the 3 point that it was over center on the sensing linkage and to remove the back plate to fix it. Does that sound right?
I put a good battery on it and it started right up and sounds real good. I try to steer it and it will steer to the left and than back to the center, but it will not steer any to the right. The steering cylinders are leaking, so they will need to be rebuilt. Could that be the problem or is it probably something deeper?
I shifted through all the gears and the powershift seems to work ok except it won't shift into reverse all the time in 1st gear, but seems to go into reverse ok when in 2nd gear which seems really odd to me. What could be the issue with that?
I'm planning on changing all ofthe fuilds, but it would be good to figure some things out before I pour 30 gal of hy-tran in it. (What is the cost for a 30 gal drum these days?)
Thanks for the help,
Dan B

on the 3pt check to see if it is moving the control rod at the bottom of the rearend housing, I have seen the cables break/pin fall out ect,, on the steering I would first guess a piston gland is loose/rod end broke ect yes I would start at the cylinders first

Case Nutty’s advise is sound.

I have had the rear plate off my 1370 its not that hard to do if you have a cherry picker/engine crane.

I’m with case nutty, repair the front cylinders first then proceed to the 3Pt problem by eliminating any possible linkage problem first.

P.S> You said that some times the tractor will not shift into reverse.

If the pressure for the filter is not in the green area on the gauge before you start shifting sometimes you will get gear grind.

How is your filter pressure?

A filter and Oil change hopefully will fix your problem.

But Please consider doing what Case nutty suggests first and fix some of your problems.

If you do pull the rear plate, take the time to clean out the area real good before you re-install the rear plate.
