I recently acquired the above tractor from my neighbor who sold her house and moved away. I am trying to figure out what the device under the tractor was used for. It looks like a drive shaft that runs from the rear PTO area towards the front and ends about halfway towards the front of the tractor(about under the gas tank if you were to drop a plum-bob to the ground) It is supported by multiple trusses that are welded on each end end to square tubing, which in turn is bolted to the tractor frame. The end of this "Drive shaft" has a triangular piece of thick metal with the top of the triangle slip over the end of shaft. it has a grease fitting at the location. I am "thinking" it was for a sickle blade that mounted mid-ship rather than behind the tractor. It is all painted the same color as the tractor, AC orange. Any help appreciated! Brad
