  7. What are dimensions of the yoke end link? Have you tried Graingers.com , McMaster.com, or Huyett.com ?

  18. Ever since I rode with Grandpa Otto on his SC Case pulling 2-16's , I love plowing! He didn't let me plow with the SC, but some time later I got my first solo drive on his Super C Farmall pulling the spike tooth Drag /Harrow over a manure covered alfalfa field. During H.S. worked on a Dairy & plowed with Farmall 300 w/McCormick 311 3-14's. When first married, we rented wifes uncles home just off farm. I helped field work, etc. Plowed with his 966 with semi mount auto 7?0 4 -16's. A rented 966 Hydro w/ 4-16's , when getting behind fall plowing. Next year got 1466 with semi mount 5-16's Auto. Finally got a Super C & 2-14's FH plow a number of years ago , that I can load up on short notice go play/Plow in someones field. Whether in Roanoke,IL with my 882D or 1811 CC with Brinly 1-10 bottom plow, or Omro,WI, or Arkansaw, WI(3) or Delafield, WI (3)or Boscobel, WI (2)or Reedsburg, WI(5) or Harper's Ferry , Iowa or Rockford, Iowa...

  21. High school I attended had a Farmall A with Mott Flail (60")? & Ford 2110 low boy with 84" Mott for mowing lawn both worked fine for lawn mowing. When I got disiplined to work crew I got to mow or plow snow. I drove tractor with a smile! For hwy. dept. I mowed with four different tractor with flail mowers. First was Ford 4100 with 84" Mott flail.....1973 Second was Ford 6610 with Mott Interstater 18' triple deck...1985 Third was JD 2555 ? with Mott Interstater 18'.....? Fourth was a Ford 6640? with Tiger Triple deck flail 18'....I demoed for a day....1994 I'd get HD Flail blades that are mounted with small clevis & pin... In heavy/thick growth you will need to go slower than a rotary deck to do a clean job with flail or double passes. http://alamo-group.com
