    Nice project you got there. Like others have said, PO put a rear gas tank on it and different fender pan. Looking forward to you getting it back in shape.

    Looks like it is mostly all there and has a newer motor in it. 3 point and rear hydro couplers is a plus. Definitely a 300 series fuel tank and fender pan added to it though.

    As far as 3 pt hitting frame, PO may (??) have put in a "special" cylinder. Check the stroke on the cylinder, should be 4 inches. Bob

    You know, I think I kind of like the gas tank there. Seems to be bigger then the original. I'll think about it but I am leaning on keeping it!

    Hopefully I can get it running this weekend. Haven't had the chance to look into it but when I do, I will check that out.

    Been googling the 3pt a bit and it looks like it also has the Brinly universal A-Frame on it. Think it is the BB-370 but I can't find anything really meaningful about it. Just some pictures but not much info on it. The drawbar spins freely which I think would make it hard to move attachments around with it. Even found one on ebay for sale right now with the manual pictured but it is set up the same way.

    (From the listing)

    Could I install a universal cat0 drawbar lock on it? If there is such a thing for the cat0. Also saw a drawing of a Brinly A-Frame in the technical FAQ I might try to recreate at a much later time if I can get this one I have to work like I think it is suppose to work lol

    As for right now, small little update! The bushings are in!

    I am not sure if I needed these larger ones since I couldn't find there old counterparts anywhere. Might have imagined them but luckily they were cheap on McMaster so if I don't end up using them, no harm done.

    I am not sure if I mentioned this as well but I ordered a new cheap carb since the original one, the main shaft is all loose. Might be a worn bushing on it or something. I'll look into it when I get it off.

    So my short term plans for right now is really assess what I am dealing with here so when I take it apart, I know what needs replacing. Hopefully nothing big needs rebuilding. Going to replace the fluids, carb and reinstall the levers. Measure the rear cylinder. Clean the gunk on the transmission, lines and couplings to see what is leaking and push the little tractor to see how it does under stress. Hopefully all goes well!

    Thank you guys for looking and your help!

    Thank you Mini! From my research, it is a Brinly BB-355 Rol-Aerator. Not much info online on it either but it is suppose to have a drum in the back.

    Edit. I am having trouble updating pic on my phone right now but when I get home I'll post some up.

    Thanks for looking

    Edit 2: Got some pics to upload

    Drawbar, As does pretty much everything in the world, it has its benefits and faults.

    Fault: Can be difficult to attach. Its own weight makes it hang vertical, 90º to the tongue you're trying to connect to. This means getting near the tongue holding the drawbar "flat" and manhandling the tongue to connect. It can be difficult, but not impossible.

    Benefit: Fi going over the top of a hill or starting to climb up a hill, a rigid/non-rotating drawbar will put a lot of stress of the tongue of whatever your pulling...think of a cart bolted tightly to the drawbar. I smaller bolt in a rigid bar will help, giving you more "wiggle room" between the 2, but also will eventually wallow out one or both holes.

    I moved this to the Hydrostatic drive section since it has ventured from just an introductory thread.

    Since nobody's pointed it out, that 3 point is factory, but it's from a 300 series, most likely the same one the fuel tank and fenders came from. It will not fit a 140, because the different frame design, the 140 frame comes back at an angle, and the 300 series frame cuts off at the bottom of the slope up. THAT is why the 3 point hits, the frame is longer. I also notice that I do believe the handles for the hydraulic lift are all pushed forward, like the links are too short. Plus you have a replacement engine there.
