I cannot see a side mount working in hay as no way to make a clean 90 degree turn with them, you would have to raise bar circle to left and drop bar. The mower you have will if you get turn made correctly cut everything without raising the bar. As for the grass poard possibly depending on just how it is made at bolt to keep it from dropping down when bar is raised. There are new steel universal boards being made and used on both JD and IH and you can buy them cheaper than new old stock wood boards as those are wanted by people restoring a mower for show and therefore will pay a premium to get what they want.

Never did a Deere but that is the way I did for the second mower and first tractor mower I bought. It was an old COOP mower that was junk when I bought it and paid $20 for it back in mid 50's. Used it for several years. Worked best on 46 Deere B and had on Farmal H and Ferguson TO30.

At least the knife ends are the same as the horse drawn mowers dating back to the 30's and are easy to get. Crank end is probably same but new after market are avaible as greasless units. All I would have to do for thoe parts is gi see my Amish friends and they would be way cheaper than any place else. The teeth for a hay rake are 2/3 price from Deere.

agree with TF. put a 4x4 block under the end of the bar, pile on some weights while your doing the other repairs.

"Is there any reason I can?t use a grass board from an ih mower on my John Deere ?"

None.

You might consider building a grass board.

Take a look at the photos below.













Take a look at the photo below of the measurements.


Hope this helps.

Just make sure they are made for a cutter bar with the same thickness as yours. The depth in the cut-out of the guard has to match the bar thickness. The cutter bar thickness on my Farmall is 5/8 inch. I found some green generic guards with a "700" stamped on them that fit it.

When I was still at home I had to mow with a JD belly mower. I just hated it. Could not turn a square corner. It was slow, 1st gear wide open, mounted on a JD tractor any faster and you ran over hay, even with a brand new sickle. Your gonna have a nice old mower there.

why not? might have to rig up a stop to keep it from falling down to far when you pic the bar up, but should be easy.

Made a little more progress on the mower today found a tire out back that is the right size for the tail wheel came of a pos 855 round baler at least finally I'll get a little money back off that thing. Got the mower hitched up tomorrow I'll take the weight of the cutrerbar and see how much or if I end up needing to raise the bar a hair more to bend it more now I'm on the hunt for some 3x4 x 7/8 shaft to make the power line a little longer
