In Reply to: Newbie -trying to age my tractor and Whats that lever for posted by Peter on October 12, 2020 at 10:54:45:
Thanks to everyone for their input ....
Having read various articles on this site I took your advice and got the manuals and have been looking through them to become familiar with the tractor.
There are no marks on the casing so will assume, as suggested, that the lever is for a Sherman overdrive of some sort.
Love the site and the information it provides. Read up here before I bought the machine so I knew a little about what I was buying.
This will not be a show / parade tractor but a machine to help around my couple of acres and in the sugar bush behind. I was using a modified riding mower but keep getting stuck in the mud as I drive across a field to get to the woods.
The tractor is not difficult to work on and most importantly I am having fun with it. Doubt I will be able to sell it and make big $$ but was better value to me than a new Kabota
