The link goes to a picture of your tractor from last year. You have the later 8N box but regardless of which box you have, you adjust the sector closest to the steering column first.
Center the steering and then remove both drag links. Back off the lock nuts several turns. With the later 8N box adjust the screw which is on the left side of your tractor. That removes the play from the right side sector. Once you have that correct, turn the lock nut back into position and tighten it.
Then repeat, using the screw on the right side to adjust the left sector.
In both cases adjust by swinging the steering wheel gently side to side while observing the appropriate sector shaft You want all of the play out of it without causing binding when operating the steering lock to lock.
Instructions for the early 8N box are just the opposite. Adjust the screw on the right side first.
Re-install the drag links. Centering should not have changed but check it.
My 860 adjusted the same as the later 8N.
