Well its time for the 920 to do a little work. Got the tiller mounted and got my belt and idler issues figured out hopefully. Did a little test area and found out this tractor handles that tiller with out a problem.

Fluid fill those rears too. You'll stick to the ground like hot tar!

So what are people using to fluid fill the rears nowadays, and would I have to tube the tires?

No need for tubes. A few different things are commonly used....camper water line antifreeze, regular motor antifreeze mix, winter formula windshield washer fluid, or 20% alcohol 80% water mix. I get the alcohol at a tire center. If tire leaks, there's no fire danger due to dilution ratio. In my one tractor with alcohol, I also added some regular engine antifreeze for the corrosion inhibitors.

So how much weight could I expect to see by filling the rears?

What does the alcohol do in the mix?

Not sure how much the 10.50x12's will hold, but likely around 7 to 9 gallons per tire, so anywhere from 56 to 72lbs per wheel. The alcohol just prevents freezing....reason I added a little antifreeze was just to further prevent corrosion. Just take wheels off, then pop a bead on one side...then simply push bead down away from rim far enough to pour in the chosen liquid...air up & done. Filling up to the tire bead edge is just right....leaving enough air space.

Thanks, still gotta get somthing figured out instead of the lift chain, I'll probly end up useing a turn buckle of some sort for adjustability.

I got the plans from the "Other Site" but I'll probly dig em up again and post em over here for anyone who wants them.

The chain is a good way....works as a "float" to allow implement to follow the ground without being tied to tractor. If rigid, when plowing and tractor goes over high spots up front, the plow will be forced down & lose traction, or when front wheels drop, the plow lifts.

ON these Allis and Simplicitys the rear and center lift is operated via a cable so I would still have a float. I sure wish I could have down pressure on the center and rear though
