Can anybody tell what hose end fitting or adapters I need to plug into my 1963 John Deere 4010?
I just bought it recently and it doesn't match with the field cultivator hose ends.

It's been so long since I messed with this kind of stuff I'm at a total loss.

What are the exact steps for hooking up the hoses?

Throw the lever down, Plug in and throw the lever up? Or just push it in?

OK did some more checking. It looks like the 5060-4 is the right end. I went down to look at the neighbors 4010.

I noticed that his insides were flush with the outside. I got a hook - hopefully I miss the orings and pulled the insides out flush. I have been using a lot of lubricating oil.

With the lever up I can push the end in. When the lever is then moved to full down, the hose end stays in.

If I pull on the hose, 3 out of the 4 will pull out. The lever moves up as the hose end comes out. Is there something maybe gummed up that is keeping the lever from holding in the down position?

If I move the lever up, it falls out.

Seems I remember as I first described. The the lever was up for operating. and that locked the hose end in. Not sure what I am missing.

Could they be pulling out with the lever down, just because the tractor is not running and there is no pressure

You need John Deere hydraulic ends, most likely you have iso (some people refer to them as pioneer tips but that is a brand name not an actual style) ends (jd tips where used up until the end of 40 series tractors). 20 some years ago someone told me a great way to remember which is which, the older john deere tips laying next to an iso tip will look worn out. Instead of the square ledge at the front of the iso tip it is tapered and the corresponding receiver is wider. If you have lots of implements going onto other tractors that use the current iso tips a lot of times you might be better served to get a couple of adapters like parker p/n 4060-4 (jd p/n x4060-4). They are a little spendy but can be better than buying a bunch of male tips and generally work pretty good.

A good design allows the hose couplers to be pulled out so you don't destroy things should you forget to unplug them and drive off with the hoses still attached.
The coupler mechanism gets dirty and also wear out.

Use lots of light oil to spray the couplers and then keep plugging and unplugging the hoses to see if they will free up.

The male and female halves of a coupler are not outrageously expensive if they wont free up.

The risk of serious damage if the hose does not come out when you forget to unplug it, makes the cost of new couplers seem very cheap.

Commonly described as JD cone style tips.

The barrels on JD scv get difficult to slide forward/aft usually from lack of use. I think you'll have no problem for hose to breakaway if the need arises. Below is photo for correct male coupler for your tractor. Pioneer part number is VP5060-4. JD OEM barrel is R34397 socket Outlet - $71.66
