Those look like great trails! I love that old tractor too. They don't make 'em like they used to....  Cool

Thanks T-dub! the old ones are alot tougher than the new stuff.
the tranny in my horse has seen alot of abuse over the last few years, including running full of water and mud for a unknow amount of rides  Embarassed  and finally blew the input seal and puked gear oil everywhere last ride. Im going to rebuilt it but in the mean time I found this for a good deal.


its the good one with the big 1 1/8 axles  bounce Very Happy 



Gonna Pull this apart tomorrow and lock it and toss it under the old girl, we got a ride saturday!  bounce  rabbit

Easiest way to make a key way is to find a bolt a little to big and use a bench grinder to grind it to a square a little bit at a time. Then buzz the head off of it

Ive made keyways in a pinch, and they work, but over a year or two of hard riding, they eventually eat out the keyway, because they arent perfectly square. I usually just run to the hardware store and get new ones if I lose my old ones. Red, why not 1080 30 fps? thats what I shot in last time. I ordered two extra batterys earlier this week, hopefully it gets here in time, and yes it is like a rockwell, bout as heavy too, dang cast iron case.....

update, its been a long time since I did much with the old girl, Seems I didnt add the pics of the ride after I fixed the tranny, Ill post those below. I bought a set of tires this winter, super swamper vampires, size 25x13.5x9  Very Happy 

I like to find big tires with small rims, they ride sooooo much softer than regular 12 inch garden tractor rims and this is why. The only way that you absorb bumps on a lawn mower are the seat springs and the rear tires. the smaller the rim, (keeping the same size tire) the more rubber/air you put between your back and the ground. which gets more important as you get older Lol. when I was younger I wouldnt even run seat springs because I felt more in control when I wasnt bouncing around. My back would hurt for a couple hours and I was good, now if I would run one of my old tractors like that I would have trouble walking the next day Lol. How ever the only problem was no matter how hard I searched, I couldnt find any 9 inch rims with the five lug bolt pattern I needed. So the other day I was at the atv junkyard and found a set of old steel 9 inch atv wheels with 4 lug pattern. Ended up only paying 5 bucks a piece for em ! score! in this pic one wheel is almost done, and the other just has the holes welded up


So at this point I took my welder and welded up the old holes. Then I machined out a ring that centered up a old hub I had in the atv rims.



dropped it in and drilled out


All done! err almost I need to drill them out to the right size, but thats easy, I just ran out of time




Next is removing the vamps from the old rims and putting them on the new ones, I think these tires are gonna hit the fender supports on my horse, so might have to deal with that also.

its not much of a "club" lol its just me and my hillbilly friends. We have been riding together since I was 14/15. Most of us just have trails at our parents, and they are very worried about getting a lawsuit if someone gets hurt so they only let people they have know for along time come out and ride. also most of our rides only get planned a few days in advance. I am working really hard at finding new places to ride that would be more friendly to others from the forum here to come down and ride with us. Also I want to plan a event like the tractor party and trapter strabaganza. but I just havent found a good spot yet. On a side note I got all my new tires on tonight check em out! a test ride tonight shows that they ride nice and soft and grip like crazy! but I need to do a mud ride soon for a real test! on to the pics!
 Very Happy 

Fronts




Rears and fronts both on

Ebay, just type in kenda xtra grip and they will come up. the best place to get them is GCT wholesale, Ebay store is called gregthree. He is on vacation now, but I just got mine for 79 dollars for two, which is way cheaper than anywhere else I found. Shipping was around 20 bucks

I followed you here my creepycrawler


On the topic of lawsuit worries. The good news about Ohio is that if you are using someones land for recreation and NOT being charged. A lawsuit will not hold up. That is thanks to the horse folk. Now that of course doesnt mean they cant attempt to sue you, just means that hopefully the judge knows the law.
