Back when I bought a lot of new old stock from Jack, I got a nos pto shaft. Checked it out yesterday and it is specifically made to attach the T-42A to a D4-10 (or D4-12). How cool is that! Thanks Jack!

Did some work on the D4-10 this evening. Motor turn, she has spark, old gas has been drained, and carburetor is cleaned and will be installed tomorrow. Hoping to hear it run! I did pull the rear PTO that I knew was not working. Will have to break open the transaxle to fix this. Again i was aware of this issue before I bought it. Not a big deal- I happen to have more than one pto shaft laying around. The real damage was to the shaft that the cluster gear rides on. The end where the pto shaft and the cluster gear shaft meets to lock up to drive the pto is where it is damaged. A collar connects the two together.image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg

Never mind the damaged cluster gear- it was taken out of another rear end. I will use this cluster gear shaft to replace the damaged one on this D4-10.

She lives!! Got her running this evening. Sputters and hunts a little so I think an adjustment of the governor etc is in order.

 

Found out the hardware store where it was displayed was Brown's Hardware in Campbellsburg, Ky. It closed back in the early 80's.

 

The lift-cylinder came from a 1965 ford truck that had a Meyers plow on it. The cylinder lifted the plow by a chain.

 

Got a few leaks, so will try to get the seals repaired at some point. Going to put some hydraulic fluid in it tonight, since I think it is running low and see what it can do.

Filled up the holding tank with hydraulic fluid, cranked her up and we have lift off! Still got to figure it all out, has some leaks coming from the cylinder and some of the connections. I will probably take off the right side handle and put a lift spring on that side to help in the weight distribution on the hitch. The cylinder itself is a monster compared to my lift on the HD-12

That's great you got her fired up Scott!  I don't think you can bend that cylinder ram!

Yea.....I figured out why the side of the dash was bent and the right hand lift no longer had the bracket arm to hold it....figured at some point the hydraulic lift pushed/pulled while the right hand lift was locked....thus the bent dash.  No way that cylinder was going to give first  :D

Still a lot of questions how good it works....but its got to beat pulling that tiller up by hand!

That is cool that she lives, hydro lift to boot!

I drove right by Campbellsburg on my way to/from plow day, right off 71.
