Fordson major narrow front end

Recently acquired a narrow front ent for a major and was wondering if the upper housing should be filled with oil to lubricate the two gears in there or maybe use a heavy grease.

Re: Hydraulic wont work

You probably need to remove the piston in the top cover and clean and in stall new piston seals. Make sure the piston bore is good with no corrosion or pitting, also clean and reseal the valve body and make sure the valve is not sticking. I have done a couple of mine with good results

Re: Fordson super major lacking horse power

I have since checked the cam lift and I got a reading of 0.305 and according to the service manual that measurement is for an older series engine, this one is suppose to be 0.255. Not sure if the cam shafts can be interchanged. Any thoughts on this one.

Re: Fordson super major lacking horse power

Thanks guys for the info. I tractor pull with this one and have run it under load on the dyne several times. Do believe she is well broken in, it runs really good under load and I even turned up the setting on the pump a couple of turns. I would be happy to get 47hp but down at least 20%.
