Nice tractor man if you need any info check out my rally thread.  Some things I would recommend would be a slap shifter and a steering upgrade.
Cheers on a nice tractor  cheers !!

since i still have the lever in the dash that would normally engage an attchmet iwas going to hook the shifter to that.

i want to put handbrakes on it but idk where to put it.

i was going to use the lever that woul lower the deck as a brake lever

I would locate the brake near the shifter because chances are you will have your hand on or around your shifter while driving.

Looks good those old Craftsmans are tough do you happen to know what tranny it is maybe it's a 4360 Spicer but anyway you would need to upgrade or fix steering those steering boxes in though things are crap but good luck on the build and keep us posted

Nice mud! Those tractors make a great base to build off of.

On reinforcing the steering - check out my build thread... Stretch and I have just about perfected upgrading Craftsman steering boxes.

exactly what it is

its acually a knuckle that grab onto the handle bars of a bike

but instead of handle bars it holding onto the lever
works perfectly

its been awhile since i have posted anything but there has been some progress

right now the craftsman is sitting in pieces. i am putting it back together soon.

All the mods i was going to do on it aren't going to happen. I am just putting it back together how it was before.

i am kinda at a wall where i don't know what to do with it mod wise so if you can give me suggestions that would help out a lot.



craftsman as it is now
