1987 Montgomery Wards mudder project 374446_439669129452717_610851980_n
this is what the Ward looked like before i tore it down. i was originally using it for parts for my 02 mtd but i realized this was the better tractor.
1987 Montgomery Wards mudder project 533802_439867586099538_1825365212_n
this is what it looks like now. at this point i put the dash console thing back on, reassembled the front axle and steering and did some stuff at the back.

this is the back. this tractor originally had the gas and the battery in the hood but i switched it around. i took the rear frame piece off my mtd and swapped out the one from the montgomery. i then took the seat off the mtd and put it on also.

this is the ward before i swapped the mtd frame part and seat in

this is what it looked like back in 1987. I took this pic off the owners manuel, which i do have.
1987 Montgomery Wards mudder project 485385_440180136068283_398788545_n
this is just a side view of how it is at this current moment


hopefully today i will be able to put in the transaxle and put some wheels on the front.

sice im putting the gastank in the hood i need to find a different engine. im looking for anything that isnt a twin and has at least 12.5 horse power.

i will post more pics asap
