When I first spotted this A on bidtrader I wasn`t sure exactly what it was...not much info on pics . Did a little research and one distinguishing feature was a hydraulic control mounted up by driver station. Looked at Tractor data and found the Super A was Hydraulic upgrade to the A. So ASSUMING I bid and won for ridiculous low price. I took this week off from work (alleged vacation) and decided to UShip my tractor instead of spending 2 days retrieving the tractor. Actually a pretty good deal and good service from C&S Transport.
I actually found out thru some pics from a friends Super A that I probably was getting an A someone had cobbled a hydraulic cylinder and control box on. Oh well.....Just another tractor...what`s one more.
I`ll try to gets some pics up later but my question is ....Is it possible to add the touch control of the Super A to the A ???? Can it be done with the available holes in the chassis or would it be a different type set up and what would be the advantage of it beyond controlling the cultivators.
The starter is missing and appears to be a 6 volt system. I`m probably just going to make a good working tractor out of it rather than try to do a full on restore. There`s plenty of them out there restored...so value may be in the working tractor. I`ve decided I don`t really want to fool with the 6 volt so will be going the 12 volt route since I`ve got to get a starter. Any real difference in starters I`m seeing rebuild kits for either in the same package. Anyway looking forward to input from GTF experts on the A`s ....I`m gonna need it. I`ve got to get to the main shaft somehow this afternoon and see if it the engine will move before I get a game plan.
Thanks in advance for any advice and input.
