enjoy discussing tillers more than compression springs
this response could have gone under "soundguy" we got off the main subject and started another on tillers.
Read most of the archieves mating Ns and tillers.
Lots of guys want to use the N as a tiller puller, but no cigar.
Agree the best current solution isto mount a hydraulic pump to the nose pully and run line back to a hydraulic motor connected to the tiller right angle gear box with a Sherman to reduce wheel speed.
Someone needs to come to the plate design/build an aftermaket replacement for the Howard to reduce wheel speed and not reduce PTO speed for a direct PTO hook up to a tiller.
