If you really intend to use that ( I used a similar model for years) then go through now and replace the pins in the knife head, make sure the holes aren't wallowed out, add new wear plates and get your lead dialed in before you even begin to worry about mounting it. Any play in the unit is going to mean clogs when you need to be cutting hay.

The Amish around us use haybine guards on their sickle mowers.

You are mounting it a full 2 feet too far back for it to work good. It will be like the tail wagging the dog, no control when you try to turn. Find a correct hitch and your shaft will be fine. With it set up like that you are jusk looking for an accident too happen.

Got the tire changed cleaned up the rim the old tube was still good but the tire was easy to remove as soon as I put the ol tire spoon to the bead the whole bead ripped right off somewhere in the darkness I must have punctured the tube so I think I?ll take it to town with me and let the tire guy fix it . The wheel bearings look good ang still had good grease in em . I greased the mower and surprisingly all the zerks took grease removed the weights from the cutter bar and the bow is a little less than before but I ended up raising the bar another 2 inches as suggested and we?ll see what that does . Went to bomgarrs and they will have a new knife for the ol mower next week for 125$ . Checked the play in the pins where there cutter bar hooks the mower frame and there is zero play at all . The next job on this will be a new pto shaft and replace the pitman the guards and knife and see what it sounds like running

I would say you were lucky in finding a tire as the No. 8 came with an 8" tire while earlier model No. 5 used a 9" tire.

I always like it when I find something in my spare parts big that?ll work it?s a 4.80 8 and it has traction instead of smooth but I suppose this isn?t a museum quality restoration so I guess it?ll be ok

Just when you try to move it just watch that you do not put the front end of the tractor thru the shop wall when it will not let you turn with it hanging way too far out back. But shop wall is better than a ditch or pond. At least you would not be taking a bath completely under water that you could not get your head above.
