I have a Mustang MTL...
I have a Mustang MTL 25 Track Loader. A couple of days ago I was working with it and I let off the Pilot control and all it wanted to do is swing left. Just wanted to figure out before I start tearing it down. I need it for a big job next week. Maybe you have an Idea. Thankyou

Hi Karen, sorry for the delay. I have my 5 year old daughter with me for the weekend. Click on the link below for the complete parts manual with Diagrams. This model is the same as Gehl and Takuechi. The diagrams are pretty detailed. Let me know if you need more help.

Parts info

Dan ,No Problem I understand. We have the Parts Manuel and yes the Gehl and Techahuchi are Universal to the MTL 25. We're just wondering if by any chance you may per chance happen to have a clue why it wants to swing and keep spinning one direction after I let go of the pilot Control?
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago

Thanks for the updated info.... So is it counter rotating with both tracks moving opposite directions or is one side only still moving? Sounds like one of the plungers in the joystick handle may be g stickin or a stuck valve spool in the main control valve. Let me know

This helps . We will look into this . Thanks for the download . It's alot easier than the manual. I will probably keep in touch and let you know how things work out. We usually do all our own repairs , but have been so busy with other repairs and work. Thank-you have fun with your daughter.

Good Morning Dan, We worked on the Pilot Controls and as we know there are many different valve blocks do you have an Idea which one it may be . For some reason the left side is getting hung up the right track is moving and making the machine spin left . Thanks Karen
Mechanic: Dan, Technician replied 6 years ago

Hi Karen, In the manual, see PDF page 36. You will see that they mark the ports on the joystick control and match those numbers on the control valve to the port the lines connect to. Look under the rubber boot og the joystick and see if one of the plungers is sticking down lower than the others meaning it is not returning to the closed position causing the function to still operate. If that is ok you will see the valve assembly in the upper right of the picture. There could be a spool sticking or a possible broken spring etc inside of the end cap of the spool causing it not to center and return to the neutral position. remove the caps and inspect for any broken parts. There is a breakdown of the valve in the manual to help. Let me know
