Furguson/ 8N Ford tractor 1950's model schematics

We have just recently aquired an 1950's model Ferguson tractor. I need to know where to check the oil in the engine, transmission, rear end and such. Also it has a Lp gas burning engine. I need to know about adjusting the fuel flow or something, because it acts like it's starving for fuel when ever you rev it up. Any info on liquid verses vapor would be very helpful also.
Thanks so much in advance!

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.

I changed my 1950 ford over to 12 volt and it sat for over 1 year now it wont start so I changed the solinoid ,and ignition switch ,battery,battery terminals and it still wont start and no lights

Recheck the battery connections for crud.Clean battery post/cables and where cables connect to the frame and starter solenoid as sometimes the tractor power feed is at the solenoid.
Good Luck
O if you have a meter or 12volt trouble lamp you can measure across the connection for a voltage drop. With the lights in the on position.

The steering column shaft in my 1954 Ford 8N tractor broke and I need info on howe to fix it.

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.
