Note: this is the BIG industrial tractor, not the model 400 L&G tractor that came out a few years later.
I'll take a photo of my 300 seat tomorrow and post. The flip-over seat still works but I hate it. 300 is pretty much the same as a 400 - just has the Dubuque 3 cylinder engie instead of the Dubuque 4. 300 is the industrial version of the 1020 farm tractor, and the 400 is the industrial version of the 2020 farm tractor. My 300 and 300B both the 9250A hoe on the back.Is anybody familiar with the dual position seat mount found on the JD400 backhoe tractors (late 60s models)? This seat mount had a 'hinge' that allowed the seat to be lifted and rotated from the tractor operator position to a raised location for backhoe operation.
I am looking for parts for this seat mount (NLA from John Deere). In particular, I need the links than go between thte seat mount plate and the seat support that bolts to the rear of the tractor. Anything will do - if anyone knows of a salvage yard or someone parting out an old tractor where I could get them? Can anyone supply me with a good close-up picture of what these links look like (so that I could create a fab drawing) then I can manufacture my own part.
It was snowing all day today and I didn't get around to going out to my 300B to photograph the seat.Thank you, Mr. De Maris.
My 400 had two seats when I got it, the original dual-position seat that had been welded down and parts removed, and the second permantly attached optional backhoe seat.
