IN reference to the DVD about working on the Ford hyhdraulics, it says to "chain down the lift arms" to test the hydraulic system. I understand the necessity to chain it down. But what is chained and how, if you please.
Thanks,
Steve

You chain down the 3 point arms so as to be able to do a pressure check. Other ways are to load them down so heavy as the not be able to lift them but that in turn causes you to have to do that to the front end at the same time or stand it up on its but

uh.. chain.. that's that heavy linked stuff.. you know.. chain.. :)

down, and in not being able to move up.

lift arms. as in those things on the splined rockshaft that are on either side of the lift cover.

slip a chain around the axle tgrumpet and thru the lift arm knuckles so that the arms cannot rotate up.. that then will allow you to read pressure on a 3000psi gauge plumbed into the test port with an orb fitting..

Send me your email address and I can send you some picture attachments.

Lately I only keep enough material to assemble one unit so if I get more than one in a week or two there is a waiting period of a week or so to get more materials and parts.
It's been so slow I stopped stocking so many parts etc.

My Ford 1948 8N lost the stop on the lift adjustment. Now the lift will rise somewhat if I put pressure on the lift adjustment, but it will not hold. Also the lift adjustment handle does not move up or down. My theory is that the internal mechanism went over the top so to speak, and is now trying to go in the opposite direction from normal. I know this is a somewhat incomplete description of the problem, but maybe someone has an idea of what I am talking about. Thanks in advance
