    Ford 3000 - no 3 point hydraulics

    Over the weekend I got back into the hydraulics. Upon disassembling the flow control valve, a piece of one of the ball retainers from the pump dropped out. With further inspection, another piece was wedged in the base of the plunger bore and thus keeping the plunger from closing (#9 on the...

    Ford 3000 - no 3 point hydraulics

    Recently I decided to rebuild my engine mounted hydraulic pump because it was starting to leak near the snap ring and suction line, plus there was some jerkiness at times in the hydraulics. All went well, rebuilt the pump, which included replacing a worn wobble shaft and the cone bearing. After...

    Ford 3000 - no 3 point hydraulics

    Agree and that is a big part of the reason for me removing the lift cover. When I took the pump off, one of the retainer clip prongs fell out of the pressure port. There were multiple retainers broke and I recovered all the parts within the pump except 2 prongs. While I'm hoping I may have...

    Ford 3000 - no 3 point hydraulics

    Just to update. After weeks of fighting with the no hydraulics issue, I disassembled the pump and found portions of the suction o-ring clogging a ball valve and several retainer clips under the pressure plate were broke. Reassembled everything with a new rebuild kit, and still nothing. As of...

    730 Front Loader Compatibility

    I have a 1970 Ford 3000 and I'm looking to drive a distance to pickup a 730 front loader to help with some light work around the property. The loader came off a 3400 tractor and has a component number 19-529. (serial number is D-5T3749) Before I make the long drive for the loader (and pay for...

    730 Front Loader Compatibility

    Thanks for the info. I've told the guy I'd take it. Especially with including the pump and brackets, I can't pass it up, even if it would need some minor fabricating to get it to fit, that's fine. Below is a link to an image of the bolster on my 3000. I just want to avoid another major project...

    730 Front Loader Compatibility

    My 3000 previously had a loader before I acquired it, so there is already a cutout in the nose tin. My tractor also has weighted front wheels and ballast in the rear wheels, plus the heavier 5/8 power steering hydraulic cylinders. I'm guessing with a loader, it might be a good idea to remove the...

    3000 - Troubleshooting power steering (right turn diffic

    Well finally found the issue. The lower bearing (#86512848) on the shaft was split and bearing were scattered all over the place in the steering gearbox. Basically with the bearing casing be split, it slide sideways and kept the steering shaft from traveling down all the ways. So beside making...

    3000 - Troubleshooting power steering (right turn diffic

    Here is the update. The steering hydraulic cylinders are definitely good and I went ahead with replacing the axle spindle bearings while I was at it. With the cylinders disconnected, the wheels turn freely when jacked up. After this, I took apart the steering valve assembly again, blew out...

    3000 - Troubleshooting power steering (right turn diffic

    Pulled everything apart tonight, replaced the lower seal, both o-rings and inspected everything. The only thing slightly off was the valve with the balls was a little stiff but after some cleaning it was much better. As for the other valves, no broken springs or corrosion to speak of. After...

    3000 - Troubleshooting power steering (right turn diffic

    Sorry....been out of town. Thanks for the response. I'm also speculating that since this happened shortly after I changed out a very nasty filter in the power steering pump, then maybe some crud got sucked into the valve (hence supporting your rust/crud comment). While not wanting to rip into...

    3000 - Troubleshooting power steering (right turn diffic

    I have a 1970 Ford 3000 I purchased a few months ago. Upon purchasing I replaced the filter in the power steering pump and replaced the steering shaft seal, as fluid was almost pouring out of the column. I only went down to the shaft seal and didn't remove valve assembly or anything else. When I...
