Hi,
Have got a 643r loader that fits into a 6130r tractor, I’ve seen the JD video on YouTube demonstrating how to attach the loader however whenever we’ve done it 9/10 times the right hand arm won’t lock into the bracket without a lot of messing about ie shunting forward and back, sometimes the loader is pushed a few metres forward because it won’t lock-in, comparing it to the left it only needs to go a few more mm for it to lock. Any suggestions to make the process easier?

I always do it on a flat surface against a wall, and have a bale on the tines when taken off so that gives something to push against without causing damage. Also find that the bracket on the right side seems to rotate a bit after being off , which I guess is due to the cylinder letting off pressure, so I connect the hydraulics up before driving into the loader and push forward as if lowering the loader to level the brackets out. Grease seems to help if you put it on the interfacing parts too.

Even after that, it still needs a bit of wiggling on the joystick to get it to lock in while pushing forward. The mechanism is great for whipping the loader off quickly but always seems a bit of a struggle putting it on again over the pins you just shove in on the older JD loaders
