Well if you have ever owned one of the hand clutch suburban, the first thing you learn is: if it dont run you aint going to move it. This happened a couple of yrs back. I started plowing, made a couple of rounds and the engine locked up. So what else could i do but throw the engine hoist up on an old truck frame, and lift it out of the garden. The engine as it turned out, went bad because the wrong rings were installed by the engine shop. It took several months of soaking it, the piston came out, the motor was saved. This is my favorite plowing tractor.

There's always a way to get it done.:thumbs:

Am I seeing right? You chained it to the seat mount?

Must have North American bolts that are strong enough to hold.

Back when I had my DB Burban, I could push it a couple feet, then I was worn out! And that was when I was lots tougher! Other than the "no moving w/out power" I loved the drive system, as it was quite unique. Reverse was kinda weak though, especially if it started raining!

You know i looked at the lift this way: the hitch is made out of the same stuff the seat spring is and bolted down with the same number and size bolts. Because the fronts heavy i ran up though the steering to balance it out. Since i have several tractors i wasnt worried much about damaged parts.
