What's the reason you are so worried about that pin? What's wrong with your hydraulics? What symptoms is it giving you?

How long have you had the tractor? Has the lift ever had any lift done on it that you know about?

If it's a 60 year old pin, you might just as well just buy a new pin and bite the bullet and pull the top cover.

When I pulled the cover on my 8N the pin was worn to the point that it actually slipped off the side of the cam due to some worn linkage. I put a couple washers on one of the shafts so it no longer had any sideways play and with a new pin everything worked fine.

I have one that uses wifi and my android
phone. Works ok. Not the most clear
pictures but I could see enough of the
bore through the spark plug holes to
know that a little atf or mmo wasn't
going to get the engine freed up.
It was worthless when I drilled a hole
in a ceiling and tried to find a leak in
a shower pan above. Too hard to maneuver
the lens with the wire and not enough
resolution. You might be able to get the
scope up into a top cover and see a cam
follower pin though.
I paid about that price on amazon for
it. Mine is a Depstech brand.

Another reason to invest in the essential manuals - OEM Operator, MPC, and Clymer/I&T FO-4 manuals all offer valuable information. Do you have an issue as stated with the system now or just bored and want something to do? If you had lift problems, did you first do the leak test? Is the top cover off now? If so, why not inspect the piston and cylinder. If it is the OEM piston, it has three steel rings and chances are the cylinder is all gouged up from it. Replace with a new cylinder, an NAA-530 piston and rubber O-Ring and leather wiper. Clean and pump and chambers or rebuild if required.

Tim and Caryc: thanks for your concern. My 8N is not lifting very well, and I'm trying to troubleshoot it, but first I need to better understand how the hydraulic system works and then run some tests that you guys have told me about. I'm pretty sure I can fix it, and have got it under control; I've just gotta get a round tuit. I didn't know that I should have inspected the cam follower pin the last time I had the cover off. Also, I need a break in the weather before I can work on it. Thanks again.
