PTO AdaptorI was reading an article in a back issue of FARM SHOW (Vol. 12, No. 6) about a pto adaptor that lets you use a car wheel as a pto to drive grain augers. Back in 1955 my Dad used our 1950 Chevrolet pickup to run our corn elevator. In those days most corn was picked and put in cribs. Dad just jacked up the back wheel, took the tire off and bolted a plate equipped with a pto knuckle to the hub. Then he set the hand throttle, put the truck in low and let the clutch out slowly. We used the truck this way till I went in the army in 1960. (Delalne Bleich, Torrance, Calif.)
