I did a little more plowing today, although I need a little more adjusting done on the clutch because, it is still slipping. All in all I'm proud of the little guy, and here is the link:

I'm glad to see somebody else being drug around behind a DB. It's hard on this fat old man.

 

Have fun Plowing!!!

This time of year I see plowing, I think snow plowing. Then I saw GA and went DOH.

When you get that clutch and belt straightened out it will be much easier. I enjoy seeing the old DBs out working in the garden. I hope to have another video of mine up for you soon. Keep up the good work! By the way, what is the model # of the next tractor you will be working on?

It depends on the one with the most potential, I'm looking at a group of about 8 and I'll be calling the guy today.

Wow! Sounds like you hit a good spot! If there's one with the differential axle that would be good one to get if it has all the reverse and speed changer parts still on it.. The extra bells and whistles on those models make them much easier to operate.

Also there a fe model with a lockout differential as well. These are harder to fine.

I posted a video of the "Super 575"(917.575135) that has that feature. I had use it when we did the video since the ground was still a little too sticky from all the rain we've gotten lately.

What am I doing wrong, yours seem like it had a little wheel spin. Mine will not spin the wheels for anything! I can fix a wheel spin problem but how do I get to that point? I have the outer plate so tight it almost won't disengage but it is still slipping what am I doing wrong!

If I remember right you had some problems with the spring on the rod. The clutch is supposed to snap in and hold.
