Rear Center Hub on Super A

Postby TexasRed » Fri Jun 05, 2009 7:16 am

I just bought a super A, and a 140, and noticed the right rear center hub is thick cast rather than the thinner steel that's on the left side. I looked at some friends' tractors and they're the same. None of us know why it's built like that. Can you explain why to us dummies? Thanks.

It is to help balance the weight variation caused by the chassis offset.

If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

Thanks, BigDog. That makes so much sense, now I really feel stupid!
