With the battery in. There is a push pull switch below the light switch like already said out on in off. With the switch out there is another push button switch up and to the left. It looks like the brass but of a shotgun shell. Push it with the choke out a bit in cooler weather. The choke is at the bottom below the on switch, the rod with a ring on the end. Then of course set the choke to run smooth.

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see I would like to thank you all for your help. Yes, The starter brushes were burned and really looked bad. It turns over now and I got it to start on ether. I let it run on ether for maybe a minute and it didn't pop, puff, growl, whine, leak or smoke. I guess I'll spend a little money on it. I suppose next I should go thru the fuel system? I can't find a dip-stick but I see a couple pet-cocks on the pan. Is that how you check the oil? How about hyd. fluid? On my 8N the trans. rear end and hyd. is all the same oil. Is Farmall different? I don't mean to be a pain the neck but it may be a few days till the manual gets here and I want get started now. Thanks

The fuel supply has a shutoff under the tank and needs to be opened when the tractor is to be operated, and shut when the tractor is stopped (right away, not after a while)
There is also a screen in the fuel line at the carb inlet fitting.
The highest petcock in the pan is the full mark. When oil drips out of it it is full. 15-40 diesel oil is great, so is 10-30 car oil. The lower petcock is when it is a quart low, but usually not used (it was used every day when distillate "tractor fuel" was used as the oil needed to be drained down to the lower level then a quart added to replenish diluted oil from the cheap fuel.)
The oil is put into the engine just in front of the distributor where you will find a winged lid about 3inches across. (use a small adjustable wrench to loosen and don't over tighten.
The hydraulic oil is checked on the right side about 8 inches or so rearward of the engine. The hydraulic oil filler is a knob that looks like a chef's hat. Under the hat (should be) a dip stick with a washer as the handle. Many are missing. Fill it between 9 and 8 inches from the top of the pipe threads. The use of Hytran, or hydraulic oil used in other tractors is OK. Originally the tractor called for 30 wt non detergent motor oil in summer, and 20 in the winter. Those are also fine to use. If using machines with other tractors interchangeably, go with what they use. From completely empty to full is 6 quarts. Jim
