PostSubject: Dynamark Tractor   Mon Dec 17, 2012 10:23 am

Yesterday I got what I think is a dynamark tractor that the nighbor was scrapping. Originally I wanted it for the hood & grill. But now after moving it and seeing how heavy it is compared to my LT1000, I'm wondering if it would be worth it to do a drive train swap into the dynamark and be done with it. The only real rust on it is on the back below the seat. I think I can clean that up and weld in a patch panel.

I love the look of it, and it had a bit of a rat rod look to it now.

I have a parts tractor i'm going to pick up that looks kinda like that, it has no engine but i think the transmissions still good. I love old Dynamarks, they're built like tanks lol.

So the frames would be stronger than say my 2002 Craftsman LT1000 that I use as a offroad tractor? I'm leaning towards fixing the rust on the back and swapping in the drivetrain from the LT1000.

I need a front axle and the tie rod from the steering gear. Any chance you'd part with that, if you have a spare?

Well it definitley has more metal in it than plastic unlike some newer tractors. And probably not, most of the front end of this one is rusted solid.

I have one of them that's very similar. I think it's a bit older. But the rear ends are very good. And fast too, if you look down under there, the rear spindle is even larger than average!

The axle shafts were cut where they exit the transaxle. I'd need a new set of axle shafts if I wanted to use the rear end. The transaxle shifts really nice. I'd sorta like to rebuild the rear axle, and get a replacement front axle for it and then throw the 17HP OHV Briggs I have in it.

I'm in Columbus, Ohio. Shipping would be a bit of a pain, but if you've got some spares, I'd like to see what you had.

Ya, I was just thinking if you where local.(I'm up and over in NH) I would really like to keep it whole too, like doing a restoration job. Smile
The original color is orange, but someone had painted green over it. Seems kinda like what you've got. But the dash is really similar. That's something I haven't seen. Does yours have a lighter on it?

Mine has the push pull switch too. It has no resistance when you pull it, so I figure it's toast. If I repower it, I'll probably replace the switch. Currently the potential donor has the headlight switch as part of the ignition switch.

If I can get some time, I'll have to get afew more pics.

Are you putting in a new ignition switch? I believe the stock one is only three positional. One thing that I do waits my mudder because I just don't care is hooked up the lights(actualy only one works) right to the power source. Bypassing the switch. So now they're always on!

I don't know how I'm going to do it. I'm not sure if I'm even going to keep it in one piece. If the hood and grill fits my LT1000, I may just graft them on and call it a day. I'd like to try to use the frame of the dynamark because it seems stronger.

Oh yep. If you have the parts and tools to get it going I would keep the dynamark together. They have a good history. And I just plain like 'em! Very Happy

The frame seems alot heavier than my LT1000. That's the big draw. Plus the retro style and the ratrod feel.

Ha ha yes! If you want a tough stout little rat-rod thing, try a Sears LT10 from the '80s. I looove the look of mine, because it's rusted out. But this summer it's going to get chopped and channeled!

I'm thinking about putting the front down, but I did this on my profile tractor and it gets caught on even the smallest rocks. Smile

I agree, if you have the parts I'd stick with the Dynamark. The tractor thats in my profile picture is also a fairly old Dynamark that i've fixed up. I've had no problems with it and i'm pretty sure it has the engine and transmission it came with still on it and i use it all the time. Very reliable.

Nice. I don't know where I'll end up, but I figure I can do something cool on the cheap.

I originally snagged it because I thought it was an old cub cadet or sears suburban.

Fairly old you say, what year is it? Older than '90s? I'm trying to figure out how old mine is. Very Happy I was thinking 1960 something.

I havn't found a date plate, but best guess would be mid 80's and possibly as new as 97. There's not much out there and the original decals have been painted over. I'm hoping I can find a data plate somewhere. The odd thing is that most that I saw online have the fuel cap through the hood, this doesn't. I also need to figure out how to release those goofy wing nut clips to get the hood open.

I'm leaning towards industrial satin black and maybe finding a sign painter who wants to do some custom graphics.

Cool! I have a plate right between the battery and the gas tank. Try red on black, or neon green on black! Very Happy
