Its on now...project is ready to roll......




This is what the tractor started as.....



Goals of the project are to stretch the tractor about 2ft, in the middle & add a little bit in the rear to mount a class II hitch.  The red sears trailer is going to become the dump bed.  Going to run 25" tires in the rear & 22's in the front.  Discarding all the craftsman sheet metal in favor of a simplicity hood, will fabricate the running boards & fenders.  There are dozens of other modifications that have to happen with the linkage & belts etc.  Running a hydro rear for now for the control & slow crawl, I like to be able to walk with the tractor when we work on the property.  I bought the tractor not running for 33 bucks & have another donor frame for the stretch....

Too bad we dont do a points system, cause you would be getting some for that extra fancy entry sign.

Did a little bit of work this weekend... I got my belt mocked up and im afraid because of the length of it, I will need some idler pulleys just to keep the belt from being floppy in the middle. I want to get the pulleys in place before I weld the frame back together because there is no going back after that...

Found a tire size I like for the front 20x8x10, I may or may not use the tires but the size is good... I started ripping out the rest of the stock wiring, that's about it.

I am inundated with projects at the moment and it just snowed another foot here yesterday. Progress is slow.....

@mrshaft696 Thanks for the update. I bet all that snow is quite the chore.
