First time back in years. Glad you are still here.
I just got involved with helping my son sort out a 9N. I had an 8N years ago and was often accessing this group of experts to keep it going. Anyway, I don't recall if the PTO needs to be engaged in order for the 3/pt to lift? On this tractor it only raises if the PTO is engaged and thus the mower is spinning. Also I have a question about why the 3 pt won't stay up.....falls immedately after PTO is disengaged or the engine is shut off.
Thanks in advance.
