Get The Manuals !
It is very easy to find reprints and even original manuals on ebay, Amazon, and on most tractor sites. The Owner's manuals and Service Manuals are very reasonably priced considering the amount of essential information they contain. Parts Books and Service Bulletins are also very nice to have. These are links to the manuals on CD that I use. My original manuals are wrapped up and stored.
Here's another link to some digital manuals, if your tractor is a 1000 series or newer.POKE HERE.

Here is a link to Zane's page if you want to add position control or to your 9N or 2N tractor. He also sells a jig for adjusting the 8N lift. The instructions and tips he provides with the jig are worth every nickel of the price. Contact info below if the link is broken:

Site offering parts to provide live hydraulics for N-Series tractors, including custom remote hookups, valves, etc. Plus Custom Machining, Tools, and Fabrication - Dan Allen (a.k.a. TheOldHokie). Dan Allen (The Old hokie) lost a big part of his web site when Verizon did away with their web hosting. I don't think the content Dan had on Verizon has ever been restored. His Windy Ridge Farm site, and contact information are still on the Web at http://windyridgefarm.us/WindyRidgeFarm.html

I have two of these multitools. I carry one or the other with me nearly every day. These are much more practical than the pocket knife I started carrying in 5th grade, back when a kid with a pocket knife was considered normal.
