I was thinking more like a 4 cyl wisconsin


A Wisconsin 2-cylinder engine would fit in that really nice and you wouldn't have to move the steering.

That's what jumped into my mind too. A nice old twin Wis-co unit. Find one with enough room to mount a pwr steering pump on it & you could build up a nice 3 point or Sleeve hitch setup.

What is the rear end ratio? My guess is that it is pretty low, we find lots of home made tractors like this in our area at sales, most were used to cultivate tobacco or some sorta truck crop. I had one that I robbed the model A transmission to use in my 1/2 scale cat D2, and the rear was Desoto and is the front drive of my 1/2 size G706.
