\"LIVE THANG\" = Independent PTO on Ferguson 2085??

I posted this on the Massey Ferguson board but it may be more appropriate here as this is really more of a "Vintage Tractors" issue.

I am curious to know if anyone on this board is familiar with Zane Sherman's inventions for the Ford N series tractors (also supposed to work on Fergusons) <A target="_blank" HREF=http://hometown.aol.com/wzsherman/myhomepage/sale.html>Zane Thang and Live Thang</A>. Sounds like just the option I am looking for to add to my Ferguson 2085 for safer operating of a Bush Hog. Based on prices in this area of Ontario Canada to upgrade to a MF 35 or 135s it may also save me a few thousand bucks.
I am looking to the experts on this TBN site for some always welcomed advice.

I would also ask the same question on Yesterdaystractors.com, on the Harry Ferguson discussion board. If they don't know, nobody does. I've seen a lot of discussions there on the Zane Thang, but I never heard of the Live Thang until you mentioned it.

The "Zane Thang" will give you position control on the Ford 9N and 2N and also the Ferguson 20 and 30 .

"Live Thang" will give you live lift on the same series of tractors .

Neither will give you live PTO .

I have a Zane Thang for my Ferguson 30 but have not tried it out yet . Th Live Thang is now on my wish list .
