No manual. What is your question? Someone probably can answer it. An M, unless converted, has a one way hydraulic system. A swather didn't come into use until much later and I would believe most would be equipped with a two way cylinder in which case the two pieces are not compatible. I do not know if a one way cylinder would work on your swather. An M can be made into a two way system with a selector block, or that's what we called it. The hyd pump runs while using the block and simply returns the fluid to the pump. The levers on the block are used to run the cylinder back and forth. I have not seen one since about 1960. Give us more info. There is a lot of people to help. Vern

Along with a little more info on the specifics of what you are trying to do, keep in mind fluid compatibility. A belly pump on an M originally used 30 weight non detergent motor oil as the "hydraulic fluid". Your swather probably uses some form of more modern hydraulic fluid.
