You don't 'split' the tractor to work on the hydraulic system. You will pull the top cover off, located under the seat. Again I say, it's time for a system inspection & rebuild. ESSENTIAL MANUALS (I&T FO-4; OEM 8N Operator's Manual; & 39-53 MPC) have parts and procedures and the MPC has the visual exploded parts view and numbers. Email me for a copy of my article I wrote for 8N repair. READ everything thru first; there is a specific procedure for removing the system and the 9N/2N is a bit different than the 8N but BOTH are assembled with the hydraulic cylinder bolted with four 7/16-20 square head bolts to the underside of the top cover. Two bolts are shorter than the other two and it matters which ones go where. You need to remove the top cover and get it on your workbench BEFORE you remove the cylinder. If you remove the four bolts before, you will do damage to the system and it becomes a huge mess. A properly tuned hydraulic system will sustain a load in the UP position for several weeks, even months without dropping down. Also, again I say, I highly doubt your PTO shaft is 'twisted'. You can do the 'leak down test' to confirm but by your issues, it's time for a rebuild. If pump base is OK, cleaning chambers and replacing with a new safety relief valve, new exhaust valve, new cylinder, new piston, and gaskets, may get you back running efficiently. Here is a LINK to another good DIY Video---
