    Randy You are absolutely correct, I figured that I needed a good hook so readers would actually click on the post. Arlin

    I was only at Tigers for two years before Fedex bought the airline for their international freight routes. Only 2 airplanes were used for MAC charters and I was never a part of that. Arlin

  9. 856D 3 point hitch

    How would the levers/torque tube be in the wrong place?
  10. 856D 3 point hitch

    A few months ago I bought an 856D at an estate auction. At the time I bought the tractor it had a mower attached to the tractor. Since I didn't buy the mower I unhooked the unit moved the three point hitch to the up position and drove the tractor home. Since I didn't have much time on my hands I parked the tractor in the shed for the summer. Yesterday I started the tractor backed it up to the plow and attempted to lower the hitch but it only went down about 4 inches. I did all the obvious things, new hyd filter and checked the hyd fluid level and still had the same results. Would a bad MCV have anything to do with this? What else can I look for? Thanks in advance. APF

    My grandfather was an IH dealer so I grew up believing tractors only came in one color. APF
