i have been reading about all the issues with using existing 8N hydraulics to operate auxiliary cylinders. I have a 1948 8N that I just built a carriage for a snow plow that will have it mounted on the front of the tractor instead of 3pt on the rear. I have a cylinder for picking the plow up. The plow is manual turn. In my simple mind I thought I could tap into the tractors hydraulics to operate the lift cylinder with one line from the test port out to the cylinder. When I would move the lever that would operate the 3pt (arms secured down)the fluid would be directed out to the new cylinder and the plow would go up, push the lever down and the fluid would flow back. After reading I am not sure this is the way it will work.

Mike..... ...gotta better eyedeah, gitta 2-3'long 2-4" dia double acting slave cylinder and clampitt between your 11-hole drawbar and the under yer butt-buckett 3-point toplink. (I'll lett you figger out the hydraulic cylinder length and diameter) Everytime you raise your drawbar you will squeeze yer filled cylinder whose output can be plumbed foward to yer snowplow slave cylinder to be lifted. Remember its power-up and gravity down. And yer not generating a bulldozer. Checkout long-time N-Board contributor ultradog's clever EXTERNAL HYDRAULIC cylinder operated snowplow. I don't expect you to build one, but check-out his hydraulic lifting scheme..... ....Dell
