No problem hijacking threads Ron. I am probably more guilty of that than some.
The closest I came to threshing was when I used the Cockshutt 50 to power a Case thresher for a demo in town back in 2017. I just lined up to the belt and let the old 50 run while the other guys pitched sheaves into the feeder. It was hot hot weather but still a good time.

Rusty....I am going to spend some of your money....That tractor was originally equipped with 2 batteries and it will make a huge difference if you went that route. Also run the ground cable to the engine block as opposed to the factory connection on the firewall. The other thing to check is if your hydraulic pump has a destroking screw. If so turning it in (clockwise) removes the load of the hydraulic pump load from the starter when cranking

Yes, it had two batteries when I got it but the starter was bad and also hard to keep the cable connections clean. I figured since I had been starting two other old diesels on one battery for years this John Deere should too. I'm still considering the 2 battery option. It had two ground cables on it both going down under the tray to the cast iron. I've read of the "de stroking" screw option for JD but don't know if this tractor has it. No mention of it in the manual.
