Well I checked the lines on Frankin tractor and they seem to be right..now I will check all the other associated parts starting with the banana plate and control valve...this 6018 is going to be the death of me.

OK..tractor seems to have good power in reverse..so that leads me to think it is a control valve or banana plate/linkage issue..what do you fine folks think?

Sometimes a complicated problem can overwhelm the mind. I'm a retired engineer and I learned a long time ago that letting a problem sit for awhile can be the best thing. I had design problems on buildings and bridges where I left them for weeks and then went back to them. With "new eyes" I figured out better solutions than if I just pushed at it. Get the proper manuals if you don't have them. If you have to, draw a diagram it will help figure it out. I would guess that this has a problem from a PO that they couldn't figure out. Let us know how you do. Good Luck, Rick

I dont have a pressure gauge..so I am gonna have to wing it,all and all its a simple circuit it can only be 4-5 things...I just hope its not the drive motor..looks to be a beast to remove...and I am gonna take your advice and think on this a day or so.

If it runs with good power in reverse, chances are it's not the hydraulic motor that's the issue. Most likely a linkage issue. Perhaps it got assembled wrong by a PO and now the range of movement is not right.

Tractor problems should fall in the 'pissed off' category, heartbroken is when you run out of beer after the bottle shop closes.

Take the inspection plate off the steering tower and look for slope or wear to the banana plate. As I said before when you put the travel control in forward the control rod has to be seated all the way in pocket on end of slot to work. Remember that even a small amount of play in linkage can make big difference in performance when your dealing with 3/4 inch travel in spool movement.

Travel control issues are the Achilles heel of the Case/Ingersoll loaders/LBH. As has been mentioned, the travel spool moves less that 3/4" between full forward and full reverse. ANY wear or misadjustment can create issues.

I tried to post a link to a site where you could get some useful info, but apparently that is not allowed here.

Best of luck.

Dan

Banana plate and/or linkage ends. EXACT same symptoms as my 644 when I got it.  Easy fix.

The easiest way to fix is to replace the worn out parts.

The banana plate just plain wears out. Unless you weld and re-machine it you can't repair it.

Same thing with the rod ends, can't really be repaired.
