  • Position Control
  • I borrowed a scrap blade from my sister; first time using a blade. I don't think position control is working on my tractor. I just got the tractor back together last year and had only done some ploughing. Is position control suppose to allow me to float the blade off of the ground?

  • Do you an 8n or 2n?

  • Hello. I have a 1949 8N. I just finished rebuilding the lift cover last spring. I used the square method to do the adjustments but I think maybe I should get Zane's Jig and go back in.

  • The jig is really important.

    Did you replace the cam follower pin?

    Is it in position control?

    Control rod straight?

  • Re: Position Control
  • The answer to all your questions is "Yes." I was careful trying to use the square method but I guess going back in and adjusting using the jig might be wise, and to recheck any parts. How important is the cam itself? I actually have another cam but figured my cam was OK.

  • If the pin didn't have a groove in it, it's fine.

  • The cam follower pin was worn flat but it was worn flat across the entire face of the pin.

  • I'd get the the jig and replace the pin.

    Derek should have both in stock.

  • What I did with the pin was to press it out and then flip it around and pressed it back in. I will get the jig and go back into the lift.
