Any of you guys plowing with your step ups?
When I go to plow days I plow in second gear with my '46 2n. Don't mind plowing in second but I always get some guy on my a** with a bigger more powerful tractor that want to speed the plow. It's no big deal I just let him pass me before we hit the next row.
I snowplowed about 3" yesterday on the '40 9n with the backblade and when done parked it in the snow. noticed some oil under the tractor, hard to miss in the snow anyway a quick dab on the cotter pin with my finger and the smell of hydraulic oil tell me that the input shaft seal is leaking. I pulled some logs this season and my '40 and it runs so good that I was going to take it to plow days this spring. Now since I have to split it anyway to put a new seal in and cause I've got a couple of step ups laying around I was thinking about putting one in.
