Customer Question
Hello, I have a...

Hello, I have a 79 JD 4040 with the 148 loader. The loader slowly creeps/raises up. My 148 operator manual says to see the tractor operator manual to "adjust rate of flow." However, the manual never addresses that that I can find.

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the complete model and serial number of your machine?

Sorry, lost connectivity while I went to tracdtor.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the equipment mechanic to know before I connect you?

4040II and SN 003309R

If it is actually creeping up, I would first check your oil condition and for what's in your filter or suction screen that would indicate a potential internal mechanical problem or failure occurring. If clean, inside your control valve to be sure it's not sticking and is free from any damage including the relief valve cartridges. Look for any damaged O-rings or components in your relief valves. If clean, have your pressures tested and confirmed whether or not they are within factory specifications . It is a pleasure to help anyway I can.
