Selectamatic Bonnet Front Badge

I ordered this with the DB & rose etc, but received a curved badge -= am I right in thinking that this is not the right badge for my 1968 Selectamatic 880 and it should be flat?

Re: Newby - Looking for help on hydraulic issues 880A 1968

Thanks Oliek, that makes good sense. The rear linkage did drop after I turned the engine off - any suggestions where I might start to look for a leak?

The steel hose goes to a spare outlet at the rear of the tractor under the LH side of the drivers seat. The rubber hose goes to the Husco valve - ypou can see it as it crosses the gear box lever area.

Many thanks for all this.

Re: Newby - Looking for help on hydraulic issues 880A 1968

Many, many thanks for your time oliek The husco valve is attached to the RH hinge of the loader frame.

Re: Newby - Looking for help on hydraulic issues 880A 1968

Thanks both - so this morning I tried it in position L and position 1 - in 1 the loader doesn't move, although you can hear the motor working. In position L the linkage goes up and slowly goes down without the loader moving. With the control lever forward to linkage goes to the top, but the pump con...

Newby - Looking for help on hydraulic issues 880A 1968

So I took the plunge and bought a vintage tractor for light work - rolling, harrowing and pushing up the muck heap - found a local guy selling a 1968 880A s/n 547085 with an L8 loader with an additional HUSCO single lever spool valve. This might be a stupid question, but is there any reason why I ca...
