I found one of these diggers made by Danuser. The problem is the pto shaft on our Golden Jubilee has been changed to the 1 3/8" shaft and I have not been able to locate the long stabilizer pins that are needed to mount this digger. Any leads would be great.
Thanks,
John

I have looked at this 2 or 3 times and still can not figure out what your asking. What does the standard size PTO shaft have to do with the mount pins/arms?? If the problem is that the PTO shaft on the post hole is the old 1-1/8 it as simple to go buy a replacement yoke that fits and is the 1-3/8 standard size one form most nay good farm and home place or a tractor dealer

Oakiegleaner,
Welcome to the N board.
First off you can buy an adapter that converts your pto shaft from 1 3/8" to 1 1/8"
See first photo.
Secondly, they do make the longer pins for attaching the arms onto the brackets under the axle.
They look just like the ones in the second pic but are about 3" long.
This site likely has both items. You can call them at 800 853-2651 and ask. (I like to support our hosts here) Otherwise Tractor Supply should have them too. I bought both items at our local Fleet Farm store.
Those Dearborn/Danusers are good units, as is anything built by Danuser.
I had one for a few years but sold it in favor of a later Ford model when I went all blue.
Kind of PIA to mount on your tractor though.
If you don't find the long pins let me know.
I'm pretty sure I still have the ones I bought laying around here. Have no use for them now.
I would send them your way for the price of shipping if you need.
My email is open.

Kind of hard to see much here but on those Dearborn units the main lift arms attach to your stabilizer brackets under the axle.

We had one of those in the mid fifties used on a 52 8N. My dad would hire out to local farmers at 10 cents per hole. When I was 10, I would set the brakes on the tractor and climb up on the gearbox while it was running to add weight to make it go in hard soil. Can't believe I did not get killed or worse. Our country has plenty of rocks to deal with also. Plus, hit a root and watch it suck down, and you had to dig it out. Boy, did I wish there was a reverse on the PTO. Finally got rid of the digger a few years ago, but still use the tractor several times a week. It still has the long pins on it.

Don't let those fenders fool you Smile
They were my father's - only thing I have left of the 2n that he gave me when he passed.

The PTO shaft on your Golden Jubliee has "NOT" been changed to the 1 3/8" shaft. The Golden Jubiliee came with the 1 3/8" PTO shaft originally back in 1953.

Others here know the Jubes better than I do but it seems I've read Ford made the switch to 1 3/8" somewhere in the Hundred series run.
