Talking to one of my bush hog dealer friends today, he said if you notice the early model gear series had a straight shift.....just push the shifter forward or backwards to select a gear.....he said a lot owners would shift on the fly and I am sure in some cases tear up the cluster gears etc....he said the reason for the plate being put in to make the owner slide the shifter sides and then up or down was to prevent them from doing that.....learn something new every day.....I usually take the guide plates out since it seems easier to select the gear......the shifter plate forces you to got to "neutral" each time.

I noticed my new to me tiller had green paint on the tines just like my aerator. I called my factory friend and he said it was green primer- which I had half suspected since several of my bush hogs have had green showing through the paint in some of the worn areas. He confirmed the tillers were built in house except for the tines.
The aerator was built in house as well.

Also learned these price list we have for these tractors were suggested retail. The dealer purchased them for less

I have noticed a green color under the faded paint on my D4-12, glad to know it's primer and not moss!! :(

 

 

Thanks Scott..

Interesting thing happened to me at work this evening. The local tractor dealer came into our office. My boss mentioned to him that I collected old garden tractors.....I told him Bush hog garden tractors.....he replied "the ones with a drive shaft"....I said yes sir and an automotive clutch......he replied.....we sold some of them back in the 60's......wow......this is in Florida....first time I have ever heard of one originating from down here......I did not get a chance to ask more questions, but you can bet I will make a trip over that way next week during my lunch break.....

The D4-10 on Epay was from FL and the seller said he brought it from the original owner from FL. That would make sense!
