  • parts for strange draft control? device what is it?
  • I pulled center section for restore parts-list and lo and behold I find this gear set that is not in books or websites. I am led to believe my serial number which
    is 8N347216star. The star is stamped next to last serial number. Research leads me to believe Ford was experimenting with draft controls in late 1951. I don't know what I'm looking at. It has to do with extra hydraulic control lever I think. It has 2 fixed idler gears and one slider gear sandwiched between 2 trapazoidal 5/8 inch steel plates.

  • you guys are right, it is a Howard reduction trammy. Thankyou all! The handle is still there and only one gear is a little rough. I can live with the situation but why not find a little 'sweeter" replacement if possible? So the big question is, can parts for my Howard be found? Again, thankyou for your info.

  • It sounds like a Howard brand gear reduction to make the wheels drive slower but keep the pto spinning faster. A handle came out the right round side cover to operate it. They did not hold up to abuse so it may have been disabled one time,
