Anyone know who owns this tractor, or anything about it? Soon I would like to start in on the spare frame and building the chassis for the narrow front 12. I have decided on the front wheels and I the next step is to start cutting the old axle mount off the parts frame. Anyway, I REALLY want to know more about this tractor.
What I want to find out is what is done at the rear... It appears to be running maybe 26" rear tires, but seems to have stock clearance at the side steps and the seat pan. I am thinking that this just may have a lift kit on the axle. I know I have seen it done on these axle, but I would LOVE to find out more. I found the photo on the net in someones flicker account ages ago.
PS: I am looking at these tires on the front. They seem expensive at Harbor Freight ($27.99) But the width and pattern is decent, and they come with rims. Plus, they are a foam rubber tire that is kind of a "run flat" idea.
This should be the tire...
The tread is not that deep though so I have not decided fully yet. I could still cut down another set of Massey wheels and run tri-ribs on them. I will have to see how my tri-ribs seem to fit the "look". Otherwise, I would need to find a set of 6" wheels that are narrow, or that could be cut down. (Hmmm.... I may have a set off a lawn tractor too!)
