  4. Looks like early 425s had oil check plug in the side cover & later 425s had a vertical dipstick @ top of gearbox fill plug hole.... Also see a Gehl 425 for auction sale tommorrow on http://equipmentfacts.com
  5. MCC.......... One of the few "Rules" of the Reedsburg PD is the tractor series must be built 1959 or Earlier. It gives the Old Timers with 1,2 ,or 3 bottom plows more of a chance to plow some dirt. If some participants come with a couple large tractors & plows , untilled ground could be plowed up rather quickly leaving us Old Timers in the dust with no untilled ground to plow. When I joined in that rule was decided by the group and it still stands. But if you have a newer rig , bring it for show for spectators or pull a people mover. If you want to see that 856 plowing It could be at Stockton, IL site again this fall. I don't have any details yet... Thanks for spectating last year. Say hello next week....I have a Super C, FH 2 bottom plow. Paul/ Rainman
