After several years of searching for the kit to change my mid 50s Copar Panzer T102 from a three wheeler to a four wheeler I finally found one in the Detroit area, The kit is missing one piece but that can be fairly easily made from the old parts.

Price was more than fair and he agreed to hold it for me until I to go down his way in April.

I am not real sure if it is something that someone took off an original T205 or T220 or if it was a kit from the factory. I have found a few photos online of the big four wheelers and there seem to be some differences in where the "drag link" comes off the steering arm. Some come out the right side of the tractor while others come out the left side. The one I am getting comes out the right side.

I am going to send "Mr. Panzer" Bill Janitor an email and see if he can tell me what the difference is. Bill is the guy I am getting the parts from.

I have an appointment in April or May at the Va Hospital in Detroit and will the follow Mr. Janitor on his 45 miles or so drive to where he lives since he said we could take a few machines in his collection for a test drive. Should be fun. I have watched Bill pull a few times and he is pedal to the metal all the way.

Gives me time to get the new/old Sears off the table first.
