That’s my years of engineering lingo coming through, Sam. It means “above finished floor”.

I am late to the party on your restoration thread in that I am a recent owner of a Super A. Great job and I really enjoyed reading the documentation of your restoration which helps me better understand how my tractor is put together. Thanks for sharing with your documentation of the journey.

I have looked at trying to restore the seat on my SA by using the loose fit tie on cover and pad available rather than a new seat which has gone up considerably in price. Back in your thread on page 3 you showed prying up and removing bits of original cord from the seam all the way around the edge of the original seat. I could not tell if you tried to fit a new red and white cover back in that seam. What did you end up doing?

Don,
Thanks for the post and linking to an earlier thread by Stanton. I had previously purchased one of the "seat covers" but in a word the fit was bad so, I returned it. I think that I will follows Stanton's lead.

Glen,
Thanks for responding. I did purchase the Manuals in hard copy. They are useful.
