Three point housing has knob on front of it. If this knob is bottomed out, the three point will not operate.

What is the long model number of the tractor? I never found anything but 7000 series.

I read manual before i contacted you and had already checked that control knob .
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Does the knob turn? If not the internal valving will need to be checked.

Answers were of no help at all, I would not have contacted you if I had not exhausted all other possiblates in the tractor manual
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.

Do you have flow and pressure to the three point? Piston may be stuck from lack of use.

Experience and answers were useless , I had already looked into the areas that Curtis talked about , I'm sure curtis is a good man , but I didn't get anything I didn't already know.
