Finally got my 1950 MT running after replacing a rotting fuel tank. The Touch O Matic only operates the main lift arms. The right control raises and lowers the arms just fine. The left control seems to do nothing. I don't know much about these tractors and am looking for instruction and/or advice.
just an update. Found out that the secondary lift arm on an MT (there is no secondary lift arm on the M) only operates when there is enough weight on it to pull it down. When there is no weight it rests in the upper position and does not move when the control is adjusted. Attach an implement and the weight pulls it down and then operates in conjunction with the second control lever.
