I have a worksaver 3 point on one of our c's and we are very happy with it. I haven't tried it on the B yet because the engine isn't finished yet. From past experienc though with B's you can't beat the factory pick up plow's which are still available ocasionally in the classified section on this site. I would try and find a tow behind bush hog to use with your B and you will be much happier with it than a 3 point. All we use the three point for is the post hole digger and the tiller and it works pretty well for that but I dont think I would want to try anything much heavier than that as it gets light in the front end from the tiller when it is raised, I am going to try my mott flail mower on it when I get it back from my brother but I think that might be pushing it on weight. I like the worksaver hitch because it can be removed and installed very quickly and even faster if you put a hydraulic quick connect on the outlet at the pump. T.J.

I too recently purchased a B. The front seems light going up hill with nothing on it. The 3pt conversions seem to stick out back pretty far. I'm wondering if the front end would stay on the ground. Could any of you guys out there who have been using a 3pt comment?

I put a home made 3-point on my B, it hangs out to the rear pretty good. I had some trouble with light front end when implements were on the 3-point, and added frame weights. That helped considerably. You can also add front wheel weights.

if you have the standard 6 volt battery with the original generator, then the wires go like this.
--"A" or "G" terminal on the gnerator goes to the cutout relay bolted to the generator
--other terminal of the cutout goes to the ampmeter then to the negative battery terminal
--F terminal on the generator goes to the light switch resistor.
--light switch must be grounded to work properly.
--if you want to test charging, short out the "F" terminal on the generator to ground, should get full charge, about 8 amps.
-------if you have a 12 volt battery, then things have been changed form original.

are the cultivators 3 point or belly. Does the lift work at all. is the three point in need of replacing. I have a 48 B that I had to replace the lift on. Mine has a wire that is not connected on somewhere as well but it doesn't effect the running of the tractor.

Today's Featured Article - Massey Ferguson 35 (and up) Tractor Assembly Notes - by Jack Wetmore. These assembly notes are for Massey Ferguson tractors with a two stage clutch and 6 speed, 8 speed and mutli-power transmissions. I see a lot of discussion forum messages regarding damaged clutches from improper assembly. The objective is to have the engine and transmission slide together safely and easily until the gap between the two halves is less than 1/4", BEFORE tightening any of the bolts holding the two together. Using bolts to draw the two halves together will damage the PTO ... [Read Article]
