seat adjustment

Hello All, question how do I adjust the seat height on my 1952 cub? It's way to high, thanks Joe

I'm assuming that the tractor has the pan seat, single post with compressible spring.

If it's not already there, the seat can be moved back one bolt hole position. Adjustment is under the tool box.

When you sit on the seat, does the spring compress, lowering the operator a bit? If not, solvent may free up the mechanism.
I have an excuse. CRS.

2 bolts are for removal of the seat post and for moving the seat bracket forward and back the one hole adjustment.

Not sure of the solution. Everything depends on a person's body type; short or long legs, torso, heavy set, or thin. I'm 6' tall, 200 lbs and have the seat in the rear position, close to being comfortable. Son is about 2 inches shorter and 240/250 lbs. Seat position is "reasonably comfortable" for both of us.

I haven't tried it, but thinking a thick metal plate under the seat, moving the seat to the rear might work. Next thought is to obtain a seat and bracket from another make of tractor. Example, the seats for the WC/WD Allis Chalmers mount to the differential but extend quite a bit to the tractor rear.

The two bolts in the slot at the bottom of the post keep it from spinning 360 deg. and still allow for vertical movement.
