When the B sometime around 1947 gained the single stick tranny then it still with only 6 gears but first was much slower and reverse got a little slower too. 2nd gear on the single stick tranny is like 1 gear on the tractors with the 2 stick hi lo 6 speeds. The model A got the single stick tranny in 1950.

Just size your windrows to the gear your have first gear on your B at with throttle set at 540 PTO rpm will be real similar to a Farmall h or Farmall M in 1st gear. In heavy hay this will mean taking less than a full size swath to make the final windrow before baling.

The 4 gear or 4 speed was for tractors that came out on steel wheels as they could not handle the speed of the higher gears.

"I know they also made a 4 gear transmission"

Take a look at the GEAR SHIFT diagram below.



Note the gear shift cover (Key 22) installed on styled tractors (6000-9599) 1939 and 1940.

Take a look at the gear shift cover on "Uncle Earl" our 1939 Model B.

As I best remember it, on a B that old, it was just like our 37 A. It had 4 gears, but then you had the overdrive lever, that gave you 3 more forward. I had a 50 B for a time, and ofcourse it didnt have the overdrive lever.

Even in a heavy windrow a baler takes very little power. In a pinch I have baled with 20 HP. The normal operation of the flywheel will make it sound like it is taking a lot of power but it is simply because there is nearly no power being used between plunger compression strokes, so it is very on and off.
