I'm shopping for rear tires also (for 318). To bad the there's that big swimming hole between us neighbor!
That neutral you are talking about , would that be for "free wheeling" as in pushing the unit around?Gabby, the 2 speed shifter works like a upside down "E", you pull back and move it left or right for the speed, center is neutral. If it doesn't move, the linkage is most likely rusted in place and needs to be cleaned up and lubricated with a dry lube.
Thanks for the reply, and by the way that suspension seat I bought from you has mounting holes that would not line up without drilling more holes in pan.Robert, I did get the lever to move as explained to me and did find the 3 positions.I would have to assume the central position is neutral but will not comment about using it to relieve transmission pressure to move the tractor manually. The transmission should still have relief valves for this purpose. Will verify when I get the fender deck off tractor.
A six foot blade and rake will be a bit much. I have about a four foot rear blade and about a five foot box blade, when they both load up my tractor starts to struggle. With chains on the tires it will push a five and a half foot blade of snow like a dozer though.All four tires are weather checked but hold air. Left front has a slow leak. Normally I would just throw tubes in them and put them to work. I just feel I will have traction issues with these as I intended to pull 6' landscape rake and blade that is intended for 8N Ford tractor. I may break this 420 but want to see what it is capable of doing.
