That’ll run a 60” bush hog mower no issue at all, especially since it more than likely has a two stage clutch (giving a ‘live’ pto).

Blade and grading work will depend on what you use for an...

Never worked on one of those pumps, so can’t add any more info there.

Chumly mentioned loaders…..if you are hoping to add one to that tractor, I’ll say one thing, DON’T.

The ‘tach’ is the proofmeter.

Usually a ground speed for each gear, rpm, hour meter, and seems I’m forgetting some other stuff it may show.

First time I peeked at those. The first one, is for the older series. The threaded connection on the left end in the picture is the cable connection for the proofmeter.

Again, not sure if it has it on the newer model, the previous ones though, the hydraulic pump had a pipe plug, used a 1/4” hex key IIRC. Nose the tractor nose down into a ditch, crack the plug...

I can’t recall on those, the previous generation, the proofmeter cable was driven off the...

So he didn’t ask if you wanted to buy it, you actually bought it…. slightly different scenario.

Parts are plenty for the 9N and they are simple to work on. I’d still fix it up and that should...

Depends, slightly more horsepower, about 35 versus about 22.

The three cylinder engines were ok, but having done things like water pumps on them, that is a royal PITA job to do.

Whatever is cheap that you have on hand.

No sense going and spending $$ on something you’re quite possibly going to smash up.

Tim will now figure he will need a cylindrical grinder to redo this part. He’ll spend 3-5000 to buy one and tool it up.

Personally up here we tried to avoid doing logs, wood etc unless there was snow on the ground, it helps to keep the dirt out of the bark.

Part of that may be due to the spring sagging and then rubbing on the leadscrew. Might be better to let it turn with it, versus rubbing all the time?
