I purchased a 1943 WC steel rearend which I'm assuming is very low hours still 4 inch bore flat top pistons and the shifter is smooth. The tractor at one time had a picker mounted on it. It has a pull rod that runs down to the mag. wasn't sure if since it had a picker if that's why they used the pull rod to ground the mag out with out having to take the picker shields off? How long was that used or was it an option? And is the mag specifically built for that application? Thanks everyone.

The mag was set up different if you had that shut off rod. It is a little flap that basically pulls back and hits the ground rod. It was also on the back side toward the block and not in the front.

Our picker had shields...the one on the left side had a sliding door near the carb, so you could set the choke. Right side shield was solid. They would interchange from one side to the other. I suppose if you had a choke rod at the steering wheel, you could use the sliding door shield on the right side and check engine oil?

That is the way all of the later ones were built. The switch was mounted on the magneto externally ad operated by the rod. Not many survived as dampness would cause the switch to ground the mag when it wasn't supposed to so they were removed and a wire was run to a switch near the operator.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review: JB Weld - by Staff. JB Weld is basically an epoxy glue that does an exceptionally good job of bonding to cast iron and steel along with several other materials. As I mentioned, it is so common that I have yet to buy a tractor that did not have JB Weld used somewhere. It is sometimes used so well you can't tell its there and other times used as a sloppy quick fix. Finding where and how it can be used correctly is key to whether you are using it as an "inelegant hack" or an integral solution to difficult and expens ... [Read Article]
