I would abandon trying to remove the lift arms. That slop in the bushings will have nothing to do with the operation of the lift. It's adjustment, adjustment, adjustment mostly.
Unless you plan on using the draft a lot as in plowing you might consider letting it slide also.
To remove that yoke it will usually take a lot of heat. (Red Hot) around the portion where the threaded part is. Using too much torque on the yoke when it is seized will result in a broken draft linkage or a broken alignment dowel pin that is designed to keep the draft likage positioned. Not designed to hold against extreme twisting motion.
8N FORD TRACTOR LIFT ADJUSTING JIG AND BOOKLET FOR ADJUSTMENT
This is something that has been needed for years. It is not an original idea for me. I used to be a mechanic and parts man in a small dealership in Talladega AL. and used such a jig to adjust the 8N lifts. The jig that was supplied to every Ford dealership was cast aluminum and I suppose that most or all of them have been lost or broken over the years because nobody can lay hands on one. I just made up my mind to resurrect the knowledge and so the booklet that I have compiled and the jig I have fabricated by actually repairing and adjusting an 8N lift and fitting the jig so it can be done in a more practical way. What the jig does is give a hard fixed point to adjust the linkage to. I am going to charge a total of $65.00for the pamphlet with illustrations and text instructions for adjusting the lift along with the jig and a new cam follower pin. This price includes the shipping in the USA. If sold outside the US the shipping is more and I will state it for the destination. Usually about $10.00 more to other countries, but more in some.
Adjustment alone will not fix a system that has excessive internal hydraulic oil leakage. If the lift will not hold a load for more than a couple of minutes you should repair the lift while the cover is off for adjustment. Such things as replacing the pressure relief valve and the piston rings on the ram cylinder piston etc.
Total is 65.00
PRICE OUT OF LOWER 48 IS $75.
