Hi,
I have a 1955 TO35 that have problems with the draft/position controls.

The draft control does nothing.. the position handle lifts the equipment but when the oil gets hot it stops lifting it.

Any input can be usefull

Thanks.

Leaking lift cylinder, stuck control valve , worn or damaged linkage?

Hi,

I noticed yesterday that my oil is kind of milky, possibly water contaminated, could this create the same behavior.

I will change the oil... first, it's easier than a major over haul!!!


Thanks.

Definitely freshen up the oil. You can use (and it is recommended by some experts on this site) 10W30.
Remember that the hydraulics, rear differential and transmission all use the same fluid so make sure to drain everything or you'll be no better off.
Also the source of the water infiltration is very likely the rubber boots around the shift levers, putting new ones on will save you some trouble down the road. I always like to keep a tarp over mine if we're expecting rain 'cause they aren't all that water tight.
That may not fix your problem and if it doesn't come back for more advice, I overhauled the hydraulics on my 202 (same as a TO-35) and I'm in the process of rebuilding the hydraulics on my TO-35. There are others more knowledgeable too but I can try to help.

I've worked on a mf35. There's a lot of nooks and cranies for water/sludge to catch in and not drain out. if you don't take the pump out etc, you be best to flush-out a few time. I had lots of scoring on the pump's pistons and the lift cylinder ending up replacing a lot.
When you change the fluid take the dip stick cover plate off and look in, you should be able to see both of the control levers in action, each has an adjusting nut. Don't be sticking your hand in while it's running, you can see alot of the levers responsiveness without the engine running.

Milky oil is water contaminated as you surmise. It generally indicate a lack of maintenance and low usage. This can lead to sludge in the lower parts of the sump and that can lead to a stciky control valve and other problems. I"m not saying that"s what your problem is, I"ll stick by my original diagnosis. It could be any of those.
