The Sherman lever has more than likely worked loose and it can be snugged I believe by splitting the tractor. If you push or pull does it click into gear in low, neutral and high? If operating correctly it should have those clicks as it is engaged.

I don't recall anything special about the driveshaft but call Tony Jacobs about that and the differential and axles. e-mail me for his phone number.

The shifter lever for the PTO needs to be moved relocated down and to the left of the PTO cover where the Elenco chain/sprocket drive is now located. That is the PTO engagement lever. I replaced the rear center housing and had to dril and tap that hole to move the PTO lever.

The earlier Elenco 4WD's were full time power driven. Later versions had a 1" (give or take) nut located on the slip clutch/box attached to the PTO/lever inspection plate cover. Turn that nut to engage or disengage the drive shaft.

NOt sure what you offered truck, but it sounds like a parts rig and plan to spend some money for the front axle and differential and shaft. There should be some additonal stabilizer bars attached to the front hubs.

This is a start for you, but Tony can get you there faster. Tom M

I would guess it was a full time unit by your description..SN was 91170 if that helps in dating it. Front axle housing had tubular braces up from the PW axle to the 840 radius arms about halfway back. The axle had fabricated brackets that bolted to the ends of the original axle center section to hold it about 10 inches below the center section.

I'm not extremely interested in a full restore of an Elenco but the tractor was neat enough for me to make an offer. The guy had a 621 also loader equipped in much better shape and has been getting alot of phone calls on the pair. Good to hear from ya..

The SN puts it at being a '59. I have a '58 841 with the early Elenco, and Sherman o/u. Not sure when Elenco changed away from constant front wheel assist. It would be nice to be able to disengage it. I hear it is sort of a trouble to do this. Does it have 'Elenco' stamped/cast on front housing? Let me know if you get it for a parts tractor.

Didn't see Elenco stamped anywhere.. but there was a lot of added on steel from homemade loader/platform thing . Front axle definitely was a Power Wagon axe thet was shortened, and ther was a gearbox installed where the shifter for the PTO normally resides, with a driveshaft yoke pointing towrds the front diff.

Haven't heard anything so I suspect it sold to the guy from Hartford who was coming to look after me.

Today's Featured Article - Box Plow Blues - by Tom Schwarz. One of the first implements most tractor owners obtain is the box plow. For very little money, this piece of equipment promises to plow and flatten any hill or vale on your ranch road or farm. At least that's what I thought! As simple as a box plow appears, it can be rather challenging to make work correctly. In our sandy soils of Florida, traction is king. You can never have wide enough tires or heavy enough weights to get all the traction you want unless you own a monster tractor. U ... [Read Article]
