simply a bracket with 2 chain slots that pins to the toplink rocker WITH the toplink.. and then you have 2 chains.. they run down to each lift arm and connect at the pin.. scrap chain and some flat tab 1/4" steel and a torch / welder and you are set. lift hog, set chain.. relaxe hyds..

Heres what the previous owner of my 2N did to set the position.
May not be what you are looking for. But has worked good for me.

This is my fix. I welded two pieces of 4" channel iron back to back to make a piece of "I" beam. I then drilled the appropriate holes and bent the "I" beam slightly to fit on the tractor. Any other questions, just ask.

Did you make the adjustable stabilizer bars yourself? First time I seen someone using something like that. I would normally use only one bar since I couldn't get them both to hook up at the same time.

I bought a pair from Orscheln's on sale; that evening, in talking with my neighbor, he mentioned that he still had a brand new pair he had purchased several years prior but never used and no longer had the tractor. He gifted them to me, seen in pictures, and I returned the new ones I bought (regularly priced at $40 each at TSC or Orscheln's.)

The price is $95.00 including shipping

Price outside the USA is $112.50 including shipping

August 28, 1999 By Zane Sherman
2824 Renfroe Road
Talladega Al. 35160 I DO ACCEPT PAYPAL

Position control for the hydraulic lift on the 9N/2N Ford tractor and the TO, TE, TEA Etc, Ferguson tractors.
The 9N/2N came with constant draft hydraulics and at the time this was the state of the art in tractor hydraulics. This feature however did not incorporate position or height control of the implements.

My device the ZANE THANG gives the Ferguson system this feature without any change to the original equipment on the tractor.
I noticed that you have a tractor with the Ferguson lift system “Ferguson system” which does not incorporate the option of POSITION CONTROL. I have invented an add on device that will give position control with no modification of the original lift or any component of the tractor and thought that you might be interested in seeing the particulars. It is mounted on the exterior of the tractor and does not require going inside the lift at all.


Ask some of the guys on the N board on Yesterday’s tractors or look back to the end of August or the middle of Sept. About the “ZANE THANG” Position control for the 9N 2N and TO Ferguson. All these tractors have what is commonly known as the Ferguson system.

INSTALLATION OF THE POSITION CONTROL

The ZANE THANG device comes with assembly instructions and pictures strictly for the purpose of instruction for installation and are not to be reproduced or published. All printed material furnished is copyrighted. I do not furnish pictures of the device except for instructional purposes. Everyone has been gracious enough to honor my wishes as of today. That should tell you something about people who own Ford tractors! :O)

Nothing has to be altered to install the attachment to allow you to have position control on the 9N 2N or TO 20 etc. It bolts onto the outside onto the existing components. It takes only minutes to install with a few common hand tools. It will hold a boom pole, bush hog or any other implement in the position where you put it and will not drift either up or down until you move the control handle just as you normally would if it were an 8N with Henry’s position control.

The original control handle is used to operate the lift from the seat just as it is from the factory. The only difference being that now you will be able to control the height or position of the implement positively.

The draft control will still be effective with the attachment installed. Just set the stop block supplied and it will return to the set depth you are wanting to plow.
I have one on my TO 20 and I just get excited every time I go out to use the tractor now. I have had this old girl for 34 years and always had to have chains and bars etc. to use my hay rake or draw bar when pulling the trailer etc. Now all I have to do is move the original touch control handle up or down just as you would on an 8N and put the lift where you want it and it stays there.
This option is especially nice when using a bush hog, a snow plow, a box blade, an angle blade, post hole digger or any other implement that requires infinite height control of the lift arms.

You take your hand off the control handle and the lift stays where it is put as long as the engine and pump is running. There is no interference with the draft control. It will work just the same as before.
However the quadrant stop for the draft control depth adjustment that is attached to the slot in the quadrant must be removed as it is no longer needed for draft as it will work with the setting of the device.

SHIPPING

I am now shipping my position control attachment designed for the 9/2N Ford and the “T” Ferguson tractors etc.

The price is $95.00 in the USA. This includes the shipping. Shipping outside the US is extra and the price is $ 112.50 US dollars. And also includes the shipping costs.

Just send a money order or a personal check and let me know when and where you want it shipped. I will wait till the check clears the bank before I ship. I will ship the money order the next working day.
If you are not satisfied just ship it back to me in good working order and I will refund your money less the shipping charges.

The device is completely guaranteed to do what I say it will and to your satisfaction or I will return your money less the shipping charges plus five dollars for handling if returned with in 30 days of the sale when I receive the unit back in good condition.

Over 600 units sold all over the English speaking world with lots of positive feedback.

I like your tool box.
Never did like them rattling around on the fender.
I did something similar. The plate bolts under the fender and the tool box sits on the axle like yours.
Quiet.

The limit chains work well for a rotary mower. Easy to make too.
If your friend uses a back blade or anything else that would benefit from
position control I would recommend you look at the Zane Thang he posted.
Best of both worlds, 10 minute exterior bolt on and it works great.
