8N Hydraulic's - Paulson front bucket

I recently purchase my first tractor, a 1950 Ford 8N. The previous owner added a Paulson light front loader bucket. The hydraulics’s for the bucket was spliced into the existing line which operates a box scrapper. They both use the same control next to the seat. There is a valve handle next to the floor to switch between the two. My problem is whenever I switch the valve to operate just the front bucket, the box scrapper completely lowers to the ground. No matter what position I leave the control lever, it always goes down as soon as I turn the valve to operate the loader. The same is not true for the bucket. It stays in whatever position it is in whenever I switch back over to the box scrapper.

Any suggestions?

No first hand experience here, but that's what I read in these forums. You either have hydraulic pressure to the three point lift, or pressure to the front loader, but not both. Without the dirverter valve you would have to chain down the three point for the loader to work. There are other ways to get hydraulics to the front loader - a pump which runs off the crank shaft or a pump which runs off the fan belt.

That problem is very very common with the N series tractors and most likely the cylinder seal in the 3 point is weak and need to be updated to the new and improved NAA type piston. To be sure pull the inspection cover that has the dip stick in it and watch for hyd fluid movement and or drips you will need a light to see in there and you almost have to stand on your head and with a loader it can be even more fun
