Three point hyd. hitch Ford 8N

M Suszko I've got a 1952 Ford 8N and the 3 pt. hitch has gotten weak and will barely lift asscessories. I changed oil, which looked and smelled very old but made little differance! Anyone have the cause and remedy? Thankyou.
G Heller I Have a 47 8N with the same problem. I could us some help also.
M. Suszko Dave, thanks for the reply. What was the book you got and where can I get one? Do you have to split the rear from the tranny or just go in from the back? Thanks for your help, Mike Suszko.
Aryl I have a 52 and the 3pt won't stay in one place. I lift to a desired hieght and it slowly moves down. Or, the 3pt. is touchy in trying to find the stationary point when raising or lowering to a specific position and holding it there. What causes this or is it normal?
Ron Drake In one spot or another you probably have oil leakage. My guess is the piston rings in the ram are worn out and need replaced. If you have recently changed oil you may have put too light a grade in. It takes 80 wt. in the summer and 90 in the winter. They conveniently have a 80/90 available. The hydraulics on the old N's don't work good on lighter oils.
M. Susko Thanks for the reply, Ron. the ram ring seals you speak of are they inside the rear housing? I have to split the rear from the Trans to get to it?
Ron Drake You do not have to split the tractor just remove the top cover. I believe their are four bolts holding the ram that come down from the top. Put air pressure to the incoming(pressure) port and the piston will come right out(after you have removed the ram from the top cover).
