I mounted the 3point hardware and cylinder today. The factory lines that came with it just don't seem to line up with my tractor. Do the lines run from the valve toward the back, then go through the round hole in the fender pan? That seems to be the way the steel lines are bent but the rubber lines seem to long. I got a valve off ebay that has a 90 degree elbow for the one of the lines but both of the lines that came with this kit have the 90 bent in the pipe.

Any guidance appreciated!

It also matters the order they are installed. They run over the top of one another and this makes a differences as to how they fit.

They also have to be removed and installed in the correct order or they turn into a rat nest.

Also remember there are 2 other line that are std. and go to the mid mount cylinder. The 3pt are optional and thread between them.

Here is the parts diagram for the 3PTH. It shows the correct orientation of the hydraulic lines.

They will be going on the front (engine) side of the fender pan, underneath the pan.

If that doesnt work for you let me know and I wil see if I can get some pics for you.
I have the service manual that Partstree list but the lines I have don't match. the lines I have' are bent to go from the valve back towards the rear. If you could get picture of the valve to rear 3point lines[just above right rear tire] would help a great deal.

Ducky said Rats nest, thats what I am trying to avoid.

I think parts tree is for a snapper with the Eaton hydro and the filter under the left fender. Try Agco parts for the Massey configuration.

Look at the "Mower Lift Hydrualics" and "Lift Link" Pages
