    ROCKSHAFT SYSTEM: is it possible to upgrade 1023E to 1025R

    I overlooked one important thing when I bought my 1023E, the ability to set depth with rockshaft control lever, I assumed that the three point lift would stop wherever I wanted it to but that not the case and wondering if it would be possible to upgrade the internal valves to make it like a 1025R?

    The 1025R has an additional rockshaft feedback valve mounted on the right side of the rockshaft housing. I would assume, but not sure, this valve could be added to a 1023e. I would ask your dealer to make sure.

    I'm thinking everything from the fender to the valve, to the rockshaft housing will have to be replaced.

    Make sure to check out JDParts.com. Register for free and you can see what's different between the two models. We can help you if you decide to go and take on this challenge.

    Personally, it would be a lot easier to trade it in for the tractor you need.

    Agree with Dieselshadow concerning trade the 1023e in on a 1025R.

    Thanks all.
    I already thought about trading and was trying to figure out which would be cheaper!!!
    I'm going to register at JDParts.com, do some studying, and then I'll be back...

    All the depth control on my 1026 is is a "stop jam screw" installed in the operating lever slot. Further back it's set the higher the 3pt will ride. It's not hydraulic, it's only a lever limiter. Maybe a 1023 has a lever/slot like that one could add a redneck sliding jam screw thingie...?

    It's more than that. The 1026 can have that stop-screw because it has position control. Meaning you can rotate the rockshaft lever to a specific position and the 3PH will go to that position in a repeatable fashion. I believe on the 1023e (which does not have position control) the rockshaft lever is centered and you push it forward to lower the 3PH or pull it back to raise the 3PH but the lever returns to the center each time.

    Using Rockshaft Control Lever - 1023E

    A - Rockshaft Control Lever
    B - Depth Stop Lever
    Use rockshaft control lever (A) to raise and lower equipment attached to the 3-point hitch.Lower Implement: Push lever forward to lower implement. Lever will automatically return to neutral position (center) when released.
    Raise Implement: Pull lever rearward to raise implement. Lever will automatically return to neutral position (center) when released.

    There is actually much more to the 3 point sensing system than the stop on the lever. There is an entire valve added to the right side of the upper rockshaft housing. You can get to the valve by removing the right rear wheel/tire. From this valve, there is a linkage rod that connects to the right hand 3 point lift arm. This valve and linkage is what provides the feedback control for the 3 point positioning. Again, whether this valve and linkage can be installed on a 1023e is the question that needs to be answered by someone that knows the inspection and outs of both tractors in this area. I would assume it can be done, but at what cost. Even if you do make the change, you still have a 1023e, not a 1025r.

    Educate me here: So if I set the jam screw in the slot to keep rockshaft/implement depth of say 4" and it will return to 4" depth the next lever cycle... Ain't that "controlling the position"? What is the "PC Valve" on the rock shaft do that the slider stop won't?

    My ancient inquiring mind doesn't seem to want to understand this one.
