got a 140 for my farm nee advice

Postby peterb » Sat Aug 18, 2012 6:57 pm

I just got my first Farmall 140. It still has the 6 volt system and I got the chance to get over my friends who gave it to me to put the new battery in. Turned over but would not fire. So pulled the carb and went to work to overhaul. But with that said my real question is the rear Pto. Since it is located on the left side of the tractor how do you hook up a bush hog or a finishing mower. This little tractor is a god send to my Honey Bee Farm and will work out well if I can understand the equipment needed. It does have the 3 point hook up on the rear so that is okay. Just need some help here on the bush hog and such A front end loader would be nice also if I could find one

The offset PTO doesn't really hurt hooking up to PTO equipment. Even though it is offset it still met ASAE standards. The only issues I have run into are if you have a fast hitch, you have to be mindful of the pto shaft when raising/lowering equipment.

Just to add to what Super A said. Think of a pull type implement such as a baler in a turn. That puts quite a kink in a drive line without any harm. Vern

If the implement is 3pt mounted, just hook it up. Being off and to the left there is no different than being off vertically. The misalignment is still in one "plane" well within the U-joints' ability to compensate.

If the implement is a trailing type, hitch it offset to the left so it is straight behind the PTO shaft. Otherwise the U-joints will be twisted too far any time you make a right turn.

Even that doesn't really matter with a standard drawbar as long as you're careful. Really sharp turns it may help but I wouldn't think too much of it. If the tractor has a fast hitch, trailing PTO implements become very, very tricky. When I use the auger wagon behind my Super A with FH, I just disconnect the PTO when I go to move it. I operate it stationary so when I am ready to use it, I hook the PTO up. Had to bend a PTO driveline before I figured it out.....

Peter,
Just a thought, not really answering any of your questions though. You said it's 6-volt and you hooked up the battery? Did you hook it up positive to ground? If not, it could be part of your iginition problems, as all 6-volt systems were positive ground, opposite of 12-volt systems which are negative ground. As I said, just a thought. Good luck with the tractor.

GI is right. If you go 12 volt you need to put in a resister and an alternator.
IHC made a quality machine and was leader of the pack.Let's keep them running,
