Would you like a copy of the operators manual for that planter? If so I will make a copy and send it to you snail mail. That is assuming it is the ground drive model. It will take me a while to find by manual. A friend has 2 and I know where anouther is in the junk pile. Last summer I rebuilt the tractor drawn 2 row pull type and boy what a job, was not about to tackle the horse drawn one as for what I could get for my time I had too much other machinery to get ready for operation. Those 2 plus one other are avaible for sale now yet by the dealer I rebuild machinery for. Then there was the PTO powered model that was made for the 9N Ford and it kept running with the planter raised unless yoy thru the PTO out of gear to turn on the ends. Later they made a different PTO adapter that would dissengage the planter operation when raised. The friend that has those 2 and both slightly different also has a PTO powered unit on a 540 Cockshutt tractor and he has both the 2 & 4 row later versions from Cockshutt. The first Blackhawk 4 row were a pair of 2 rows with a special hitch to pull them. But I thinl you might be mistaken on being 30" rows as they only set down to 38" and up to 44" rows. The one I did redo he wanted it set to 30" but not possible and I got it to the 38" that is the narrowest. The friend has the book for the PTO powered planter. They were made at Belleview Ohio

Leroy: You are not too far from me either since you said you were within 30 miles of Kalida or Delephos.That distance works for me as well. I have a Black Hawk planter Test Stand. How can I contact you snail mail wise as well. I would like a copy of the operators manual as well. I also may need a couple of parts. Thanks. J

John, we have met before. Do you remember about talking with the Fisher boys a few year ago about putting on a Perkins engine seminar at the Buckeye show. I was with Ron at the VanWert show when he was talking to you about it. My address is Lester Helmlinger, 10622 Ashburn Rd., Wapakoneta, Oh. 45895. I either do not have the capablities for emailing things like that or if I do have then I have no idea how to do it, That is why I have to get copies made and mail them out. You know Dick Alexander, his wife is a cousin of mine and at one time I know he had a part of the test stand. As for parts I do not know where to get any, what I needed for that planter I made my own. It will be a while before I get a chance to hunt for the book. I think you are up close to Toledo. My hearing is to the point that I cannot reaonably use a telephone anymore so do not give out a number.
