Is there a way to adjust the 3 point lift lever to get more travel on the lever..?

It is numbered from 1 to 8 , but my lift arms don't start to move till at around #4 , maybe 4 1/2..... 1 thru 3 have no effect , no arm movement.

Tractor is a L3710

Thanks..!

Do you have an implement installed? If so, it is probably holding the lift arms up. In other words, if there is no implement installed, the arms will go all the way down. In that condition, moving the lever from 1 to 3 will probably lift the arms up to implement height.

Hodge .... I have a finish mower on there now, but it makes no difference whether there is an implement attached to the three-point or not.
It is not a big deal , but it would be a little bit more convenient having more travel on the arms to adjust the brush hog when mowing with that.

I looked at 'parts', there's no adjustment on the lever BUT there IS on the 'feedback' linkages. It may (or not) be possible to adjust it to be more 'sensitive' or 'when' feedback actually takes effect.
However as long as the 3pt is fully up at '8', I'd say it's 'working'.....
It would be nice if the lever position did represent the actual position of the 3pt though.
