I bought a Ford tiller (model # 59724) off of a Ford 100 from craigslist. Put out some nice cash because I don't see them come around often. I had planned to mount it on my 1970 Jacobsen Chief 1000. Knowing that Jacobsen made the Ford tractors, I assumed it would fit.
That was during the winter, today I tried to mount the tiller and ran into a problem. The gearbox on the tiller hits the left rear tire of the tractor. All of the pictures I have seen show the tiller being to the outside of the tire. Is this tiller not compatible with my tractor, do I need smaller tires, or am I just being stupid and missing something?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
