This is just a guess, but maybe a place to mount a planter drive gear.

It has a grease fitting, implying the shaft turns inside the mounted housing. Maybe the shaft has a keyway for a pully or gear?

On second look, it has a hole, perhaps for a bolt or pin?

That is the seed plate drive. The bare tractor from the factory had a cover like the one on the other side. (This does tha same as the one on the right axle of a Cub, just a different design.)

I kinda thought it was related to a seeder. The rate of seed drop would have to match the speed of the tractor. Thanks!

The rate the seeds drop will increase/decrease with tractor speed. So the seed spacing in the ground remains the same regardless of tractor speed. The actual spacing is set by the number of cells in the seed plate and selecting appropriate drive sprocket sizes.

It’s disappointing how few of the various implements are available these days, and the high costs. I will probably get rid of my B, after I get it painted up and all, for that reason.

Cultivators and belly mowers is about all I see.

My bet is there was a lot of old horse drawn implements used with the B / BN.

They probably make great hay wagon pullers!

Man..... I dont think I could do all that work like that just to sell it!
