Ernie, My new A

Postby Hickup » Sat Feb 09, 2008 7:45 pm

I just picked up a '40 A. I got it running, after a lot of turning, by HAND. I did run into it start turning off. But, Its nice. Did the A's come with a wheel weight on the right side? It's on the inside. Let me know.

Thanks Marc

The "A" had a cast iron right wheel to offset the weight of the engine on the left. I think this was added after early production, so a '40 might have a steel wheel with a weight bolted to the inside or outside.

Thanks Dan. I only noticed it when I got it up on the trailer. Ernie does have the outside wheel weights as well. Now how does the pto work. I got it running, well today I have to pull out some toasted acorns... but the pto has a big wheel beside it that turns with the drive.

The lever on the left hand side of the seat is the one that turns the PTO on. Both the belt pully (the big wheel) it was used to drive a cord wood saw... etc ... and the PTO will spin thats how they are set up. Just to note to that your A more the likley has the smaller pto size youll need to pic up a adapter to make it up to the standard size, you should be alble to get them anywhere parts are sold.
