Is there a place to buy his setup jig for my 8N? I just found out that he has passed this past August.

Tom, how big a hurry are you? If you could give me
a couple of weeks I could duplicate the one I have
and send it to you. The jig works well but Zane?s
copy machine must have been about to go belly up
because the instructions are difficult to read. I?ll do
the best I can copying those for you. Dan.

If you would, how much work is it? How much $ to make it worth your time?

You pay the shipping and if I gotta buy some steel but I think I have some material out here to make one. I'll try and scan the instructions and send via email. Just remember it will be at least 2 weeks before I can get out there to work on it, hope that's alright. Dan

Check out Red Rock Manufacturing at redrockmfg.com I think they have an item that does what Zane's "THANG" does.

I had difficulty with the instructions too when I calibrated my lift using Zane's jig. Afterward, I reworked them and think they are a little easier to follow. The document is a 1K PDF and I'll be glad to email them to anyone who asks - My email shortcut is available in "Modern View"

The so-called Zane Thang is a device to simulate position control for use on 9/2N tractors.

The OP is asking about the adjustment jig, an entirely different device.

Hey Big Dan, Bill has sent me a set of the directions that are easy to read, so I just need the Jig. Thanks, Tom

I saw years ago a post with a picture that showed how to adjust your linkage using a common framing square . It was laid flat on the housing ( which is upside down ) and inline with the edge of a bolt hole , then you measured "X" distance to the rod . Really very simple . The jig makes it easier but it really is an easy task . Might have been the FO4 manual ???

Hopefully someone has saved it and will re post the link .

I have a jig and think I can put my hands on it this afternoon . If so I will take measurements and post a pic . I would not do that if Zane or his family were still marketing the jig Wink

Please forward a copy of the PDF to cbhaines@pacbell.net. It would be great to have a copy that is easy to read.

I too could use a PDF, as my paper copy is also difficult to read.

Email is open on classic.
