The Ford three point hitch, early or later is not designed to push heavy loads and damage can result from so doing, especially to the draft control mechanism.
OK to reverse slip scoop to push into piles of LOOSE materials, e.g., crushed rock, loose dirt, etc., but if your control rod or draft control fork is bent and your draft control does not function as it should, think back and remember if you have pushed hard on the three point mechanism in the reverse direction. It was not designed for such abuse.
