I just obtained a 55 for free but needs some TLC. Needs a male PTO drive from the wheel to the gearbox. Doesn't have any paint but everything seems to be free and ready to run. Just ordered the manuals from FNH but does anyone have any sage advice about these rakes??????

What lubrication goes into the gear box? I assumed 90wt gear oil, but a JD serviceman recommended grease because it wouldn't run out around the seal, but would liquify enough to work. Any ideas?

If the NH parts gives you sticker shock, I'd look through the farm supply stores, they carry a pretty good selection of pto shaft parts.

I have a super 55 rake which I assume is similar to yours. The main difference between it and the later ones is on the later ones there is a univeral joint on the left rear axle to bring the right rear wheel in close to the rake. This makes the rake follow the contours of the ground better. On the 55 if you go up a hill or have any bumps in your field the teeth will scrape the ground before the wheel lifts them up. However, for free you can't beat it.

There's still quite a few in use around here. As long as you keep the gearbox lubed and keep the teeth from digging in the dirt when raking, they seem to last darn near forever.
