I have a 9N and was going to put stabilizer bars on the 3 point. I would like to know if I can still raise and lower the 3 point with implements with the stabilizer bars on the tractor, is there anything that I should know or do with this setup. Thank you.

Stabilizer bars are to limit side to side movement so the 3 point goes up and down fine with them.
You must be thinking of stay bars which lock the up and down movement.

I was talking about the stabilizer bars and not the stay bars. I know that the stay bars have to come off of the tractor when using some implements.

Stabilizer bars are traditionally used for non-ground engaging implements such as brush cutters, PHD, pine straw rakes etc..... Okay to use with cultivators as they don't penetrate deeply.

Plows and such need the ability to move side-to-side while in operation.

As you know, stay bars are not the same as stabilizer bars, and no,they will not 'pretzel' your lift arms unless you attach them incorrectly. Stabilizer bars have to be used with the implement they are intended for -you just don't put them on and leave them on. You first have to have the under the fender brackets to use them. The key to getting them set is to first attach the brackets with longer fender bolts. The linch pins have to face inward towards the linch pins where the lift arms attach to the rear housing. Like this: Take your index fingers and point the tips at each other. That is how the pins are to look. Any other setup will only cause disaster. Leave the fender bolts loose. Attach the stabilizer bars to the fender brackets. Secure bars at these points with linch pins. Have an implement ready to use as a setting gage. A back blade or mower works well. Attach the ends of the stabilizer bars to your implement and secure with linch pins. Attach a top link. The next step is important. You will be lifting the 3-pt slowly to determine the correct position at which to bolt down the fender bolts securely. You have to go slow so if the bars start to kink or bend, you can drop it down immediately so damage doesn't occur. So make sure touch control is in the down position. Start engine and engage PTO so you can begin setting procedure. SLOWLY start to lift your touch control lever and watch closely at the bars for signs of binding or kinking. The trick is to get the fender brackets -remember you left them loose -to self align themselves. After a few attempts, you should have the brackets positioned so that when you lift your 3-pt all the way up, there is no sign of the bars kinking, bending, or binding. They should flow up and down smoothly. Once satisfied, you now can tighten down the fender bolts to secure the brackets in place. This setting should never have to be mucked with. It will good for any implement that you use with the stabilizer bars -back blade, mower, bush hog. Using a back blade almost requires the use of stabilizer bars. If you've ever pushed snow backwards without them you know what I mean. Good luck.
