The rear tires are supposed to be 31x10.5x15 but they are worn out and only measure @29.5 tall


I was pretty sure those were not 23.5's :confuse: :confuse: Are those auto rims and tires then?

Yes they are 15" truck wheels. I made rear spacers to widen the tires out to 38" outside to outside.

Here are a couple pictures of my progress. One is a picture of the three point hitch mock up before I weld. The other just shows the stance of the front with the new front tires.

Just a quick post to say thanks for the info on converting the tractor to a six speed. I just recieved the parts and test fitted them and seems like it is as simple as adding the pulleys and shift mechanism. I just painted it and after it all dries I will get it installed. Thanks to Steve for the time he took to remeve the stuff from a parts tractor. I will post pictures in a couple days.

Nice alterations, looks like you're taking care to do it right.

What are those fenders from, they look familiar?
