I had many hours switching hitch configurations on our '51 8N with the original style. A problem often was that the pin for the swinging drawbar would get loose and get lost. Dad purchased a secondary mechanism that was supposed to lock the pin. Backing up in stubble or in mud getting unstuck would sometimes bend the locking mechanism making it non-functioanal.
