Well, I can honestly say I didn't pay attention, but before I did anything to the TO35, the lift 'looked like, to the best of my recollection'- it seemed... to raise all the way up. I really didn't test it, came off the ground when I wanted it to. So lately I started working on it, dumped the hydraulic oil- milky, to work on the axle seals and lower link pin etc.... so now there is #90 gear oil from the MF dealer.. so it is the right stuff... but the arms still only raise half way. So if it was always like this, or I did something wrong is still in the air, but what can I check? Adjust?

The oil shouldn"t be "gear oil"! It should be Permatran, or hytran, etc or whatever MF sells for transhydraulic fluid, UTF, or whatever you want to call it.

Tony, you have the correct oil in it. As long as this is actually a TO-35, and does not have multi power, it is supposed to use a 90 weight mineral oil (It is not 80-90 gear oil). A universal hy-tran oil will work, but that tractor was meant to have the 90 weight mineral oil, like you are using. As for the lift, lemme scratch my head for a bit.

90wt gear oil and 90wt mineral oil are two different kinds of lube.

Why all the hash about right/wrong oil/ Right or wrong, it would not impact his problem of lifting ONLY half way?????

Might need to be adjusted. John (UK) has a great set of instructions on how to do this.

if it stays up for more than 4 hours after you get it all the way up contact john[uk] for further instruction.

I see some Canadian users here. I am looking for hydraulic oil for my TE20, are there any Candian suppliers of this oil and what are people using? I tried the Massy dealer and he is saying 80/90 but is not sure of this tractor.
