How long of a top link do I need?
Your top link should be able to retract about 3″ minimum from it’s current position. So if you want to correct the problems that you currently have as shown, both the top link and the boom’s brace need to be shorter.
What is the point gap on a Ford 8N tractor?
The correct point gap for a front distributor is 0.015″. For a side distributor it is 0.025″.
What should the compression be on a Ford 8N tractor?
It seems reasonable that the published 8N compression ratio of 6.2:1 therefore should yield a maximum cylinder pressure of about 91 PSI (6.2 X 14.7). However, compression of a gas also raises its temperature, which increases the maximum cylinder pressure.
What does a hydraulic top link do?
Constructed to perform for excellent longevity, this hydraulic top link is a useful agricultural tool that connects to 3-point equipment. It is a category 1 cylinder, compatible with a horsepower range of 25 to 55, and can operate at 3,000 PSI.

- 2—Turn the IDLE MIXTURE screw all the way in and then back out ONE turn from the bottom.

What is a Category 1 tractor?
You may notice some sub-compact tractors, such as the John Deere 1 Series, have a “limited” category 1 hitch. This indicates that the hitch is lower to the ground and may not lift as high or open as wide as standard full-size category 1 hitches.
