I was given what I was told to be a new seat spring for my 300 Farmall. Honestly Ive had it on the tractor for several years. It looks new, but seems really weak. Im only around 200 pounds and I pretty much bottom it out. I dont think thats right. Ive heard about the football trick, but I wouldnt like to do that if it isnt necessary. Like I said at 200 pounds I dont think I should be bottoming out the spring. I could be wrong though. Its been a problem since I bought it in the early 2000s but never did anything with it.

Jim he said 200 Lbs not 2500 Lbs , don't think he could put the feed bag on and gain enough to flex it . Some of them import replacements are either to whimpy or way to stiff ,i have had a couple that it would take a pretty stout boy to get them to give and had to take a little temper out of a coil or two. way better off finding one of a parts tractor .

Might need to put a partial vacuum in it! Jim

Years ago tractor builders had light, medium, and heavy seat springs available. You might try putting two springs together, I've seen that done before.
