Lance,You might think about setting the front wheels/axle in a notch or two if Wynn is goimg to use it inside the barn for more stall clearence.Also raise the 3 point hitch above the trailer frane so it would not catch the frame if the PTO didn't acidently get turned on and the control was in the raised position.Looks GREAT good job.

Yup we had a conversation this morning about the three point and it fouling on the trailer tongue. I figured we could just take the stabilizer bars off and the draw bar out but your idea of simply moving it above the tongue would work just as well then when you want to use the 3 bar you don't have to find all the stuff that you took off.

Yup, I think Hobo mentioned the width of the front end before. I think at this point I'm gonna leave it where it is and see if it causes problems. Wide like this it makes it a bit more stable and the "barn aisles" are actually outside adjacent to the stalls where there is a two rail fence and a planter creating "the aisle" so there's a bit more room than if you were driving it down the middle of a barn.

Before I made a 3 point trailer hitch I put a trailer ball in the 11 hole draw bar and made a Ho-made draw bar lock to keep the drawbar from turing. I never use stays to keep the 3 point from going up never had a issue BUT was aware of the possibility...

(quoted from post at 05:23:51 05/04/19) That is a fantastic.

I like the oil pressure switch idea. I'm rigging my 2N with lights (definitely not original...) and the oil pressure-triggered buzzer sounds like a great idea; as long as I'm messing with the wiring.

I really appreciate all of the details.

I hope that your wife has many enjoyable years using this tractor!


So the story on the oil pressure switch buzzer. It's really very simple.

I used one of these from epay for the buzzer




And one of these from Rock Auto. This you could probably buy anywhere it just needs to have a set of normally closed (un-pressurized) contacts




Then you simply wire it up from ground on one side of the buzzer through the pressure switch to positive. The buzzer is polarity sensitive ( Rolling Eyes I couldn't for the life of me figure out why that simple circuit didn't work till the the light in my pea brain went on and I thought about polarity) and the fittings are 1/4" tube with a 1/8" pipe for the sensor. Those I scrounged so I don't have a source to point you to but I'm sure McMaster-Carr would have what you need.
