Thanks for the answers guys. I have an operator manual and a parts manual. A shop manual would be nice. Jason, I did a repost because I wasn't sure I was explaining my question correctly and I added the pictures to help me as well as whoever answered my questions. Today I connected the potato plow and gave it a go. I didn't realize that a live PTO meant that the clutch had to be engaged for the lift to work as well as the shaft. With the poor performance of the lift, not lowering, it was extremely difficult to drive, watch the plow, and feel safe. Yeah, I need those parts. I haven't had success finding the parts on here but I'll keep trying. Thanks again, I appreciate the help.

It was ok to repost with the pics. I just don't want to see anyone get hurt using the tractor with a non functioning lift. I wouldn't go looking for a parts tractor just yet. Drain some of the hydraulic fluid out until you can take the side cover off where the dip stick is. Take a look inside and see what you find. Those pumps are tough and pretty forgiving considering the conditions they have to run in. The biggest thing that gets the pumps is if there is water in the hydraulic oil and if it freezes in can bust the pump. If you look inside and it looks ok in there as in you don't see any broken or bent pieces, I would order the parts you need to hook up the draft control spring assembly and then you can test the hydraulics fully. If you look in the upper left hand corner of the page you will see where it says tractor parts. Click on it and select Ferguson TO20 and go to hydraulics and you will see the parts. I saw the yoke and plunger listed, I didn't notice if the spring was on there or not. If it isn't just go to the Ford 9N page and get a spring for a 9N. It will work on the Ferguson. The yoke and plunger more than likely will be 9N parts too since they are aftermarket pieces but Harry Ferguson designed both systems and they are very similar and the draft control spring assembly will work. The bad news is you will have to take the top cover off to install the plunger, it isn't a bad job but make sure you disconnect the control valve before you try to lift the cover off or you will have a broken control valve. But we aren't quite to that step yet and when you are we will gladly walk you thru it. When you get a manual get a reprint of the original Ferguson shop manual. It has tons more information in it than those I&T manuals. But first thing is look inside at the pump and see if you see anything broken or bent. Keep us posted.
