Help! ID'ing implement parts for my '41 A

Tue Aug 05, 2014 4:56 pm

I've been poking around in some of the sheds and weed patches on the farm, and I've found a few parts I know belong to an A cultivator set :{_}: , and a few I'm not sure about. Quite a few have traces of red paint (not that that means anything), and a couple have what looks more like Allis-Chalmers paint. Then again, I'm partially color-blind, so I thought I'd get some other opinions. :wink: There's an old AC sitting on the creek bank... Anyhow, was hoping y'all could help me ID these parts, tell me what's missing, and what doesn't belong to my A. Hoping some of the parts I think are for the A aren't for a SA... I have numbered the items at the top of most pictures for reference.

#5 is a manual lift..

Definitely cultivators, I can't tell you the names of each part, but I can tell you that this many pieces of cultivator setup.

Figured it was, I've seen them in many pictures of A's, but what intrigues me is #7, the dual manual lift. I know it's not for a standard A cultivator set, but for some reason I think it may go to the A. Probably not, but it just seems like it should.

1 - Rear tool bars for A cultivator, bolt in place of the drawbar.
2 - Rear rockshaft for the A plow, power lift (pneumatic lift).
3 - Don't know, could probably guess.
4 - Part of the front mounting frames for A cultivator.
5 - Lift link for the A cultivator rear rockshaft, power lift, connects 6 to 7.
6 - Rear rockshaft for A cultivator, power lift.
7 - Depth adjusting lever bundle for A cultivator, power lift.
8 - Shield type knife weeders, don't know the brand without doing some digging.
9 - Plow coulter, unsure of brand, could be from A plow.
10 - Spring trip, could be AC.
11 - Spring trip, probably AC.
12 - Spring trips, look a lot like some AC I have seen.
13 - Spring probably belongs on 7.
14 - Lift rods, A cultivator, connects 6 to 1.
15 - Top plate of a pneumatic lift cylinder.
16 - Spare tire rack from under some pickup truck.

Mr. Becker, thanks a ton! Very definitive information! So, when you say some of these parts are for a power lift, would that be for a super A, or would they work with a pneumatic LiftAll? That's exciting that that one part is from the pneumatic lift. I had hoped to find the unit stashed somewhere and in better shape, BUT! Ever since finding out that my A was equipped with the pneumatic lift originally, I have been convinced that someday, somehow, I AM going to have a working exhaust lift on her again. This just fuels the fire! Back to digging for more parts in the shed, VERY soon!!!

Guess I could have read that thoroughly! Man, am I slow on the uptake. You answered my last question already. So, looks like most of this set up is for use with the Lift-All. COOL! :D

I looked around and found some pix of A's set up with these very parts and pieces, with the Lift-All.

Jim Becker, I was doing some digging on the 'net for Farmall exhaust lift info, and I think I remember your name being referenced as someone who has experience with these lifts. Have you restored one?

In all cases, where I said power lift, I was referring to the pneumatic lift. None of your pictured parts are for a Super A.

(I see your new post, you figured it out.)

I have brought pieces back together into working systems. (You still need a lot of pieces but you seem to be finding them.)

I did but I don't. I just finished moving to central Minnesota.
