It works just like an endloader, down pressure and all except won't lift near as high.  It has a trip loader bucket.  It's been about 30 plus years since I've used this one but hopefully tomorrow.  Trip loader has a rope release.

 

How do you get down pressure with it?  My rear three points won't provide down pressure at all?

Ok, there's a stop welded in so I guess you get it when you put a partial load in the bucket.  I said that before I used it.  Memory must be going.  Sorry!

No problem!!! Just making sure that mine was functioning correctly.  I do wish they did have a down pressure option on these 3 points!  The scoop looks great...

Ok, anyone else having this 3 point issue?  As you can see in the pictures, the part of the hydraulic cylinder that attaches to the top link is catching the fender pan and bending it in.  I notices that I thought this would probably happen as I put everything back together.  Nothing appeared mounted incorrectly when put together.  I know I can carefully and tastefully notch out the rear of the fender pan if needed but was wondering if I was missing something?

I'd be looking into the fender pan mounting. Looks way to close for me!

Checked a parts diagram and confirmed it's held on by six bolts.  Can't really see any spacer or anything else that would raise the height of the fenders.  If I put in spacers they would have to be more than a quarter inch thick.  ????????  the cylinder is fairly precise in its fit with very slight give in the rubberized portion of the hydraulic hoses.  I'm stumped.

That's a strange situation. You are correct, no spacers between frame and pan.

3pt mounts look to be orientated correctly, and in the right spot.

There is only one way to mount the cylinder. I can't imagine the cylinder mount bending

or tearing away. But maybe have a look there.

Everything should be good, but that pan does look low. I have mine in the shop, I'll look

and take some pics tomorrow. Hmmm

Thanks Will, gone checking on my Mom this morning.  You've given me great references.

After looking at both sets of picks again, I wonder if just bending the pan back out may give you the clearance you need. PO may have gotten it bent somehow and it just got hooked onto the lift mechanism, bending it further.

Good catch KennyP.   Bent it out and it's clearing, barely but it is clearing.  I think the cotter key got hooked on the fender and pulled it (the cotter key in the hitch pin the holds the toplink and the cylinder together).  I don't have as much clearance as Will has but I had to do a lot of hammer work to straighten the fender pan when I restored it and it's not perfect by any stretch.  Thanks to both of you!

Glad that worked for you. Just watch what you use for a pin in there.

I figure people may have sat on the rear of the pan, or otherwise pulled down the rear of the pan.  You might be able to place a hardwood board under the rear edge of the fender, then using a prybar, get the pan pulled back up.
