Starting one tractor from another through the PTO:
Do not try this if the safety police are around;
Using an MF-35 or similar tractor that has a "ground speed" PTO lever position. Place the two tractors back to back and connect the PTO shafts together.
Make sure that the "tractor to be started" is in neutral.
Jack and block both rear wheels of the MF-35 (rear wheels must be clear of the ground because they will be turning in reverse).
Place the MF-35 PTO lever in the "ground speed" position. Run the MF-35 in reverse-low. This will cause the MF-35 PTO shaft to turn in reverse direction.
This can now be used to start the other tractor.
I have done this just once to start an old Cletrac.
Stay clear of the PTO shaft and of the rear wheels and please don't report me to the safety police.
Surely I am not the first one to try this method.
This may also work with an older tractor such as a Ford 8N with PTO tied to transmission speed and direction (non-live PTO).
