I know the Sherman live PTO exists, but have never seen one come available. If I did, someone else would likely have deeper pockets than I do. I got a really great deal on a Sherman combo when I stumbled on it about 10 years ago. Also got lucky and it turned out to only need a shift fork. I can't afford those anymore at current selling prices.
When I compare the 3 tractors I have: the Ford 3000 has 8 gears, the 8N has 12 gears (Sherman combo), and the 2N has 6 gears (just a very noisy F&T overdrive in that one).
For my use, the double clutch in the 3000 is a good thing, but far from essential, so I wouldn't pay premium prices to add a similar feature to my N-tractors.
