I have a 1950 8N. The draft control gives me fits. If the lever is one way, my neat little 3 pt platform won't go all the way down. When I move the lever to where it will go all the way down, it lifts painfully slow. (It lifts quickly and smoothly the other way.) I'm not plowing with it, and really only want it to go up and down quickly and smoothly. Any idea on what adjustment I have to make to correct this? OR, could I swap the top off of a 9n or 2n without the draft control linkage and simplify the whole thing?

Check out Zane's site and the booklet and jig for adjusting the 8N lift.

You're thinking BACKWARDS.

The 8N's have POSITION CONTROL, which is what you want, so you can control the height of the three-point, and have it hold exactly where you set it.

(9N's and 2N's LACK position control.)

Put the little lever on your 8N in the UP position, and LEAVE IT THERE. That will give you POSITION CONTROL. (DOWN is DRAFT control, used for PLOWING.)

Now, adjust the quadrant, as the other poster said. If that doesn't help, the lift cover will have to come off, for replacement of the "cam follower pin".

Sounds like either the cam follower pin is worn or youre just out of adjustment, Either way I would get one of ZANE's lift thang adjustment tools. Pull the top cover and follow his instructions, put the top back on and you'll be amazed. His kit even comes with the pin to replace your worn out one.

Took me 2 hours start to finish, works perfect now.
