Hi folks! I just acquired a (1965 ?) Ford 3000 diesel tractor that had been sitting up for over a year. The numbers Iíve located on the tractor are as follows: 5 11 10C, H 165, and I think the serial number is F*C184425. Anyway, my question is mainly surrounding hydraulics. First is the hydraulic selector lever. What does it do and what position should it be in for using the 3 pt lift? Next is the flow control knob - what does it do? It was frozen in the ď all the way in positionĒ but I have since loosened it and it can now turn in and out. And lastly, the auxiliary service control valve knob - what does it do? This knob is rusted and frozen in the pushed in position. The lift arms are currently stuck in the up position and do not move when the hydraulic lift control lever is moved in any position so Iím wondering if any of the above items would cause the lift arms to not move.
A lot of knowledge on this forum so I thank you in advance for any insight. Oh, and as if itís not obvious, Iíve never owned a tractor. Iíve driven them to bush hog and disc to make food plots but thats the extent of my knowledge on tractors.
