  • 8n draft assembly and spring
  • I took off the cover under the seat of my 8N and found what is in the attached photo. I'm not sure how this got bent though. I never use the draft feature of the tractor so now I'm trying to decide if I 1) fix the broken parts 2) leave it as it since everything else is working or 3) take out the bad parts at the fork/yolk and leave it as is since I don't use the feature.

    Any thoughts on this?

    Thanks in advance.

  • The long spring and hardware has come loose. The two springs should be just about parallel. Since you have the top cover off the hard work is already half done. Figure out what is broken or missing. Fish missing pieces out of the sump. A magnet on a stick may help with that. Reassemble and adjust per manual.

    If you need any parts I have some, others on this forum will also.
