  • Ford commander 6000 3pt issue
  • I recently purchased A Ford 6000 Commander. Runs good, 3 point and power steering were not working. I filled hydraulic reservoir in the front of the tractor and I now have power steering. 3 point is still not working. Do the steering and 3 point hitch share the same hydraulic system? I want to add that the tractor sat for around 8 years and the hydraulic reservoir was empty when I filled it.

  • Nice acquisition! Did you get an early red/gray or later blue/white version? SOS transmission?

  • Hey bud! Is he the one with the drag racer who brought it to one of the past steak fry events?

    He said the reservoir was empty. Has he filled it and tried to bleed the air out of the system?

    Check your email. I just sent something for Lenny.

  • Hello Ed, I have not bled the air out. I didnít know that was necessary. Iím trying to determine if the hydraulic pump that runs the power steering is the same one that runs the 3 point hydraulics

  • I don't know for sure but I would guess that they are separate pumps because they are on the 5000 model.

  • That's cool Ed, I'll forward that to him Thanks !

    Na , That was Scott with the race car, Still has the car, doesn't race anymore, He got the car down in the low 12's with NOS til he blew a axle tube out of the 12 bolt housing, Had to weld it up for him LOL
