I was just looking through my Jig instructions and realized that I have not included my flat washer trick to obtain the "draf" mode adjustment for a badly worn lift linkage.
So here is it and in the future I'll include it in the instructions in a separate page.

Sorry! Senior moment!

I make and sell a jig with instructions and a new cam follower pin which is usually worn out that allows you to be able to correctly adjust the 8N lift the first time you try to do it.
See my link below.

If the quadrant is not all the way to the back you should be able to adjust the draft by moving it rearward just enough to make the lift raise when the touch control lever is at the top of it's travel. There is one other way to do it if the quadrant is all the way rearward already. You can remove the big draft sensing spring and yoke. Then remove the three bolts that retain the draft spring anchor plate. Under the plate there is the flange of the draft control rod. The anchor plate keeps it from coming out of the lift housing. Obtain a flat washer that will just go down the shaft that the spring was over and cut or grind out enough of the flat washer so that it will fit over the dowel pin that prevents the link from moving. This will move the draft linkage more forward which is what we are trying to do here so the linkage will make contact with the control rod when the touch control handle is raised to the top of it's travel when in draft mode with the little lever. Put the anchor plate back on and the three bolts that retain it and you can try it before you reassemble the big draft sensing spring to see if you got it to work. If it now makes the lift start to raise too far down the quadrant you can move the quadrant mounting forward some to where it will begins to raise in draft mode when the touch control lever is about an inch or two from the top of it's travel. The lift is supposed to drop all the way to the ground when in Draft mode. The depth of the ground engaging implement can be set to keep a constant draft by slowly lowering the touch control handle to the point of draft you desire and then setting the handle stop so you can go back to that setting next time the lift is raised and lowered.
