Your PTO shift houseing is going out. I just repairs the same problem. You have to seperate the cases just in front of your lever to engage your PTO. The shirt fork is bent. Go to for parts and they also have a number on there sit for technical advise.

SOURCE: The steering column shaft in my 1954 Ford 8N

Not sure, but if it's a 1954 model, it's not an 8N. 8N was only built thru 1952.
But sounds like you will need a new steering shaft.

I broke the pto shaft that runs the brush hog. where can I get the part and does the whole rear end need to come off to replce it

Most PTO shafts are a square shaft inside of a square tube to allow for it to go in and out of itself as the mower goes up and down across the ground. You should be able to unhook from the tractor and the gearbox to remove it. In the USA we have farm stores that we go to for the U Joints and halfshafts and connectors to repair them. Some of the parts are also used on trucks so Truck Repair places also. Any parts house can get you a u joint if you bring them the old one to measure.There is also round shaft models but there has to be a slip joint in all of them so no to removing the gearbox off of the mower deck.

Does the pto have anything to do with the lift on a tractor?

Sometime around 1950 Ford tractors started using "live PTO". Prior to that the power lift for equipment required that the PTO be on and running (turned on by a lever on left side of chassis below the driver's seat). So 'yes' the older tractors (many in use today) require the PTO to be running in order for the lift arms to lift equipment. I find this very annoying when trying to run a mower, especially when the hydraulics don't hold very well.

Shermon shifterin ford 8n
The above link is an excellent site for help. Can you see if the shaft is turning when you try to shift the Sherman Hi/Lo transmission.?
The Sherman units are installed inside the housing between the engine and Ford transmission and I believe you would have to "split" the tractor to access actual Sherman unit. It sounds like either the Hi/lo lever is slipping on the shaft or has broken internally....good luck. Try doing a search for ( Sherman transmission Ford 8n tractor help) there are a lot of Old timer experts out there and this was a very popular addition to the 8n's

Is there a way to operiate the hydro to raise and lower with out the PTO spinning

If your tractor does not have "live pto", then neither the pto shaft, nor lift arms when the clutch is depressed.
I don't think any 2n's, 9n's, or 8n's came equipped with a live pto.
Hope this helped.

I have an 8N Tractor and the gear broke off of the starter shaft. How do I retrieve the broken pieces out of the tractor?

There should be a clutch inspection plate on the bottom of the bellhousing, take that off and you should be able to fish them out.

You should repair that PTO system before it gets worse.
Get a repair manual and fix it.
I can't explain the repair here.
Keep in mind.......everything on your tractor is easy to fix.
