Thanks! It's a 1967 c10 long bed stepside 283sbc standard 3spd. It was my dads first vehicle that he ever owned. Been in the faimly for 30 years now. Been sitting in a barn since 1998 pulled it out last year so it had been in there for 20 years. My dad ran it every 5 years or so. But It runs again, I'm working on brake lines right now and replacing them all because their all original and in rough shape.

That ol' JD is a real beaut! Looks like a mid to late 70's unit, given the muffler and the dual pedals.

Looks like she's in great shape!

Thanks guys! Yeah I ran the numbers on the john deere and it comes up to be a 1973. But she needs a rebuild cause it burns oil like mad and smoke's like a freight train but it runs good though. I had the head off once and you could move the piston back and forth in the bore so shes alittle wore out. lol!

I'm really digging the horse! I really like the PTO pedal used as a gas pedal. That same setup would work on my 702.

So just an update I havent been working on the wheel horse besides upgrading every bolt on it to grade 8. Me and my dad are building a garage and I've been going to school so I havent had tons of time to work on it but I do have a blade I'd like to use. I got it from the guy who use to own it but the blade is from an older round fender wheel horse so the width is wider than what's its supposed to be and it worked with the original size tires but not anymore Very Happy so itll need to be modified but I can definitely do that. lol! 1969 Wheel Horse 700 WORKHORSE - Page 3 20190812

Sweet deal! I'd love a blade like that for my 655, they have that super neat handle that lets you angle the blade from the tractor too.

Yeah they're pretty nice and easy to use. I've gotta plan to make it skinnier so it will fit between my rear tires that I think will turn out pretty slick and you probably wont be able to tell if you didnt know what you were looking at. bounce

So I've decided that I'm gonna make a hitch for the back of brutus so that I can pull stuff with it and it would also be nice to have a nice attaching point since I dont have a rear bumper Neutral . I never got a hitch with mine and I dont feel like buying one so I'm gonna make one out of this 1 in x 2 in C channel. I would like 1/2 in bar stock but I dont have any of that plus I'm not going to be doing anything to crazy with it anyway. But itll be built similar to the way wheel horse built them from factory Very Happy .

Nice idea! That piece of C-channel should be perfect for a drawbar, can't imagine it'll bend or anything.

Yeah. I normally like to completely over build stuff but this time I just dont have the steel to over build it with. I think instead of using a 3/4 inch pin to hold the hitch on, I'm gonna instead put bushings in the holes and step it down to half inch. The reason is that I've tried putting a 3/4 inch bolt through the hole but it's a tight fit and you pretty much have to beat it in there but I've seen it more than once where the pins decided to rust weld themselves to the transmission and then you gotta cut it apart and drive the pin out 1969 Wheel Horse 700 WORKHORSE - Page 3 2429134702 . So to save myself the headache I'll just use a half inch pin.....should be strong enough to do what I want......hopefully lol!

Haha, yeah the pin for the slot hitch was seized super bad on my 655 when I got it and I had to cut it apart and use heat to get the pins driven out. Kind of a pain but it was totally worth it to be able to use the slot hitch.

Well I started to make some bushing. Got the 1/2 inch hole drilled and the ends faced. Gotta wait till Monday to work on it more.
