Position control for the hydraulic lift on the 9N/2N Ford tractor and the TO, TE, TEA Etc, Ferguson tractors.
The 9N/2N came with constant draft hydraulics and at the time this was the state of the art in tractor hydraulics. This feature however did not incorporate position or height control of the implements.
My device the ZANE THANG gives the Ferguson system this feature without any change to the original equipment on the tractor.
I noticed that you have a tractor with the Ferguson lift system “Ferguson system” which does not incorporate the option of POSITION CONTROL. I have invented an add on device that will give position control with no modification of the original lift or any component of the tractor and thought that you might be interested in seeing the particulars. It is mounted on the exterior of the tractor and does not require going inside the lift at all.
Ask some of the guys on the N board on Yesterday’s tractors or look back to the end of August or the middle of Sept. About the “ZANE THANG” Position control for the 9N 2N and TO Ferguson. All these tractors have what is commonly known as the Ferguson system.
INSTALLATION OF THE POSITION CONTROL
The ZANE THANG device comes with assembly instructions and pictures strictly for the purpose of instruction for installation and are not to be reproduced or published. All printed material furnished is copyrighted. I do not furnish pictures of the device except for instructional purposes. Everyone has been gracious enough to honor my wishes as of today. That should tell you something about people who own Ford tractors! :O)
Nothing has to be altered to install the attachment to allow you to have position control on the 9N 2N or TO 20 etc. It bolts onto the outside onto the existing components. It takes only minutes to install with a few common hand tools. It will hold a boom pole, bush hog or any other implement in the position where you put it and will not drift either up or down until you move the control handle just as you normally would if it were an 8N with Henry’s position control.
The original control handle is used to operate the lift from the seat just as it is from the factory. The only difference being that now you will be able to control the height or position of the implement positively.
The draft control will still be effective with the attachment installed. Just set the stop block supplied and it will return to the set depth you are wanting to plow.
I have one on my TO 20 and I just get excited every time I go out to use the tractor now. I have had this old girl for 34 years and always had to have chains and bars etc. to use my hay rake or draw bar when pulling the trailer etc. Now all I have to do is move the original touch control handle up or down just as you would on an 8N and put the lift where you want it and it stays there.
This option is especially nice when using a bush hog, a snow plow, a box blade, an angle blade, post hole digger or any other implement that requires infinite height control of the lift arms.
You take your hand off the control handle and the lift stays where it is put as long as the engine and pump is running. There is no interference with the draft control. It will work just the same as before.
However the quadrant stop for the draft control depth adjustment that is attached to the slot in the quadrant must be removed as it is no longer needed for draft as it will work with the setting of the device.
I am now shipping my position control attachment designed for the 9/2N Ford and the “T” Ferguson tractors etc.
