Il not have another claw end either, I have a habit of leaving the ball in it then it turns around and falls out.
Can agree. First hydraulic top link arrived in year 2000 with used MF390. After that we've only bought hydraulic top links (or rather ordered new tractor with one).Hydraulic top link is one of those things that you don’t think you need, until you have one. After that the idea of pissing on with threads and trying to get the pressure off it to lengthen or shorten it in the field just seems a huge pain in the arse!!
If its getting slack in the threads, but everything else is good.
