  Mf 168 4x4 Runing away in high multipower

Hi all, Be gentle as it my first post on here.
I have got a mf 168 4x4 but the odd problems.
Is it normal that the tractor runs away in high multipower. I have been told in low it will.
And the 4x4 only works in low multipower.
Any knowledge would be welcome
Many thanks

Bonjours et bienvenu!

"... tractor runs away in high multipower...." I don`t know this model, but if you mean that the tractor (in gear) moves by itself, my first question would be how many RPMs the engine turns at when in neutral and at idle speed (if the transmission is a form of automatic), or how properly the clutch is adjusted (if the transmission is manual).

I mean if you are driving down a hill in gear the engine doesn't hold you back.It doesn't matter what the RPMs is.
Not to good when you have got a trailer behind you and going down a hill its a bit lively.
Hope this helps.

Now I understand.

Even in a low gear? (It can't hold you back in a high gear but it should in a low gear.)

What kind of transmission does it have, manual or some kind of automatic?

auerbach hi,
It is a manual with the multipower its 12 forward 4 back
I think i just found the problem there is a vent on the side of the gear box near the hand break that had a bolt stuck in it with a load of silicone round it.
What this was doing is forcing the oil out vai the 4x4 shaft. when i looked at the tractor i checked all the oil.
So yesturday i checked it and refilled it and NOW it seem to be ok.
MF 168 is the high spec version of the 165. Stil scratching my head about the 4x4 only working in low multipower

The problem seems to be with the transmission, and I don't know what "multipower" is. There seems to be a double clutch in your model.

If you google "mf 168" or "mf 168 multipower"
you will find various owners around the world who might be able to help, and YouTube clips.

G.Day masseymad
The 168 is the multipower version of the 165.
Multipower allows you to change up or down a gear when on the move say for example you are travelling along and start to go up a hill and the tractor starts to lug or slow down, by changing into low multipower will change the transmission down a gear and allow the tractor to maintain speed .
one thing to be aware of and i think you already know is the fact that when the tractor is in LOW Multipower the engine will not hold/slow the tractor down when going down a hill,this can be quite dangerous if you are not aware of the situation so always select HIGH Multipower when going down hills just to maintain and be aware of
your rate of speed.
Another benefit of the Multipower is when in HIGH Multipower and you approach a hill and you stop halfway up press/Disengage the clutch, the transmission will lock and the tractor will not run back down the hill ,this function is known as Hill Hold .
One thing you will find that if you want to change gear in this position the gearlever will not disengage ,this is due to the fact that the weight of the tractor is SITTING on the gearbox to change gear you must first select LOW Multipower And at the same time hold the tractor with the brakes ,you will then find the gears can be selected with ease,always remember to be in HIGH Multipower when you feel it would be more safe to maintain constant control of your speed.
I wont go into the internal goings on with the Multipower apart from saying it a hydraulicly operated clutch pack .
I hope this helps yourself and others interested in the subject.
Regards
Hutch.
