Well im starting a new build its an older sears 10/36 i think its around late 70's? Anyway ive been looking at it and the rear fenders look like a 50's car fin style. so me likeing old cars ive decided to go with a hot rod gasser look. Ill be using the tractor for stright drag type style. im going to do a front mod which i want to keep a secret for now Cool . Right now im just stripping it down seeing what needs repairs/cleaning parts/seeing what im going to need. Its getting a big motor (need 2 find)
a set of rear fatty tires and skinny fronts. Also im not sure how but i cant seen to find the year of this. The Model# is 536-255212 Code# is 8088? Also can anyone tell me about this rearend its a 3spd/key way axle. Also i think its oil filled do to a drain plug on bottem.

Here's a pic dump of what it is now and it dissmanteled. lol

Theme look for this build.

I"m with you man I love the old car/gasser look. Are you going to keep the rearend or switch it out for a straight axle like a racing go-cart set up.

I'd guess from other pics your machine was built in 1977.
The rear end is a Peerless 600, it does use oil instead of grease.

I think it will look great when finished... flat black with white walls, and maybe a little white pin striping? Cool

well didnt do much today scrounged up some angle and square tubing for tractor/ started cleaning the frame up. id like to sand blast it but i dont have one o well.
Also got my leaf springs for my solid axle front end. just like a real gasser lol. I got them off a old massy furguson snowmobile. they have 4 leafes so i can just add some or remove for different front flex.

some pics

MF'n snowmobile? Ive seen John Deere but not for about 25 years. the JD lawn and garden store around here tried to sell them for awhile. not much of a market. except for the last 2 years, we dont get a snow that lasts more than a week or so.

I have had a gasser / high boy on my "to do" list for a few years, just havent got around to it yet. I planned on using 24x12x12 turfs on the back and the skinny 18" trailer tires on the front. A 4" lift in the back and about 2" in the front would look tough as hell

I've never seen snowmobile leafs with that big of an arch to them. They kinda look cool. Most of the snowmobiles I've messed with were older polaris, and their leafs had maybe 3in of arch to them depending on how beat up they were. How do you plan on mounting them or is that still part of the secret.

the mf snowmobile was pretty heavy duty lol i swaped skis on it do to the bottems being bad. And na secret is the leafs lol. i plan on hooking them up like youd see on a jeep cj front. I got to build shackels then u bolt the axle im going to make for it on. Only thing is as you can see in pic one side has a place for a bolt and the other doesnt. i was just going to weld a metal pipe to it so i can run the bolt through it. But im unsure if i can weld it being a spring like metal. idk yet

You could ditch the longest, and possibly the 2nd longest leaf and just use the shorter ones. But that would require cooking up a new way to mount them. You could also do like the Jeep guys do when they do an stretch, and move the front shackles out in front of the frame by afew inches.

Most car gasser builds you have to convert the stock front frame rails over to a square tube frame, so you could do that to this too. Take some rec tubing and make some frame rails that are longer than the leaf springs, mount your shackles to the rails (you'll have to do a pinch type for the front of the leaf since there is no mounting point for it.) then line the frame rails up with where you want the front end to sit and weld it into place. If there is alot of frame rails hanging out the front of tractor you can always find an mini keg or an old nos bottle -(Fire extinguisher, could get it panited with nos stickers or leave it look like a fire extinguisher) and mount it to the rails. I've seen some cars at the track by my house look like that and to me it looks sweet. Even the car you posted has a canister in the grill- its kinda of an example.

Cheep paint does a decent job - painted a couple tractors now with it - gives a decent shine/long lasting and easy blending ( if scratched).

Did some work today on the gasser. well yesterday i made some few extra dollers (thanks craigslist) lol and i bought a new blade for my chop saw and 10pc cut off wheel set and a new grind wheel for grinder. also picked up a piece of flat band steel at tsc for my shackels.

Today i got my main front shackel mount suport cut to size and squared off. its a piece if 1-1/2'' box which the front stationary shackel will be mounted to.
i temp put 2 bolt to hold it in place as all fine tuning will be done then everything welded. I had to stop as i needed to put in what i call "frame rail"
connectors lol like what fearlessfronts friend streetlegalkarts did to his mud king. Well i wasnt paying any attation lol cut my angle to size fit them good then had to bend a piece.......started to bend it and Snap! haha it was a piece of bed frame spring steel. so now i got to find a piece of 1-1/2''x2'' angle steel or 2''x2'' at least 6' long.

Ive decided im deff not going to use the stock fron axle to crappy of a design. Im thinking box steel but im trying to find a set of stright 90 degree spindles to use.

northern tools have the gocart ones but im going to have more weight on them then a gocart would have so i dont trust the build of them.
Well pics soon also i got some mufflers for it.... Very Happy Twisted Evil Cool

I was playing with the idea of a transverse mounted leaf spring on a tractor at one point for the front. For the rear, how about a swing arm with a drum instead of a pulley?
