At least we know that chrysler rear in the panzer will handle a ford engine LOL.


Maybe a four cylinder Ford engine. I gotta stick up for the blue oval LOL

One of the neatest Hot Rod Garden Tractor pulling Tractors I ever saw was a purpose built machine called the "Wild Hare"
Full pulls were routine!!.
It ran a Turbocharged VW Rabbit Diesel. And would be a much more compact package to fit into a GT Chassis.
Another nice one was built around an Olds Quad 4.

"The Bad Boys of Bagley"(Iowa) pretty much had Hotrod GT pulling sowed up in Central Iowa.

George, I would think one of the dual overhead cam Ford 4cyl's would make a nice puller.

In fact here is a link to a Hor Rod shop that could hook one up with adapter plates and parts to make a 4CYL
Conversion. They supply for severla adaptions including two Ford 4 bangers..

But guys a Panzer....! Please pick something else for this experiment! They are just way too unique and rare. It seems a shame to cut one up for an experiment that will tear it to bits.

That is very true, but I am more concerned about the safety of it's owner! Very dangerous putting that much power in such a short/narrow machine.

I have to agree here. That Panzer is a neat tractor all in it's own.

I don't think you'll have any problem plowing your garden or pushing snow around for that matter. Good luck and keep pictures coming.
