  • Question on drawbar
  • I have 47 2N and pull a trailer a lot. Is there anything out there that will keep my drawbar from turning and raising with a load on the back of trailer?

  • Thanks everyone....Now I see what I need to do. I enjoy taking my grandkids on hayrides and this will keep the front from raring up as they pile on. And will be safer.

    I will get the stay links and think I can make the part to keep the drawbar from turning.
    I want to thank everyone for all the info that I have received from this great site over the years!

  • Some innovative fellas like Farmer Dan make their own drawbar lock. Also note Dan made some stabilizer bar holders so when not used can just be kept on the lift arms.

  • Here is my set up. Note home made drawbar lock on lower left. This keeps drawbar from rotating. I prefer this setup to the swinging drawbar because the hitch is farther away from the wheels. I can make a sharper turn without jack knifing.

  • Get out your Operator's Manual and review the chapter on setting the Drawbar Stay Bars and SAFTEY WARNING BADGE LOCKOUT. That keeps the 3-PT lift set at a certain height for pull-type implements. Since the 9N/2N were not equipped with a swinging drawbar clevis bracket, you cannot use the Dearborn Swinging Drawbar Setup as shown below, unless you install a specially made adapter plate to accept the 8N-802 clevis bracket. Red Rock Mfg -see LINK -repops the original Greene drawbar lock assembly which locks the 11-hole drawbar in place. Without the STAY BARS attached, your 3-pt will bob up and down when trailering a pull behind implement regardless if the 11-holer is locked out or not.



    NOTE: Both setups use the OEM Ford STAY BARS. The Swinging Drawbar requires the 8N-802 Clevis Bracket. The VEE BAR does not.
