Ive got 2 david bradleys that havent run and been in storage for 30+ years. Im thinking about just swapping the engine rather than tinker with these old motors. Anyone have any idea how much HP The DB gear boxes and axles can take? I have a few brand new in the box honda motors 11hp, wondering if i will ruin anything if i dont horse it. id like to run a plow in sandy soil thats full of smal cement chunks that need to be removed and normal soil with berry root clumps that need to be removed.
Also do thes tractors have neutral? in moving the tractor to its first daylight in years i couldnt get it to roll backwards, seems like it has one way hubs? Im amazed these tractors are such low hp, expected 5 or so. I need to check the models i have.
