Default John Deere Model 70A Loader Questions

I currently have a JD955 with a 70A Loader. Could someone please describe the "proper" steps for connecting the loader? I was moving with a loaded bucket of dirt this weekend and the left side vertical support "popped" out of the cavity by my feet and to be honest it scared me a little so I want to make sure I am securing the loader properly before I kill myself.

I do not have the owners manual for the loader, nor are the instruction stickers still attached to the loader. I think it is kind of silly that JD doesn't offer the owners manuals online, if for no other reason than for the safety of their users.

Hi, We have the same set up: 955 and a 70A loader. I can take pix of the instructions on the loader arm; but generally you want to make sure that the arm locks are engaged when reattaching the loader. Hardest aspect for me when removing or re-attaching the loader was to make absolutely sure that there was complete "relaxation" of all hoses(ALL pressure relieved) so that you can reattach them. I found real quick that no amount of pressure would reconnect the hoses if there was any pressure in the lines.
I'll try to take some pix tomorrow when the weather isn't storming.

Finally got soem pictures of the mast instructins. These are in my photo album as well. All these pix are of the tractor with the loader latched and operational. Also next to the mast instructions you can look at the loader latch in the locked position.

I've had the 70A FEL pop off one one side two. It took me by surprise but I was really trying to lift too much and using just one side/corner. If I remember right there is a plate that has some adjustment to it on the tractor that catches the ears/wedges on the tractor. I adjusted the side the popped off and have not had any issues since then.
