i got the hood back on the ford yt16h today and took it for a ride up and down the street. even tho it still needs front tires it was fun to drive. its gonna take a bit to get use to the hydro since i find myself trying to grab for the shifter but ill get the hang of it. after i took it for a cruise i parked it out front of the house for a couple glamor shots.

Looking very nice! I didn't see this thread till just now, so ignore my post over in the other thread. If you plan to replace those tires, try Greater Cleveland Tire, they sell pairs at a discount.

Good looking tractor DS. From your OP I take it you don't very good mileage per lb of air in the front tires. :laughingteeth:

the tires that are on it are 16x6.50-8, there is a guy that lives a couple miles down the road that had a small mower junk yard that has 17x6.50-8. im not sure if they will work but im thinking they should . i can probably get them for a couple dollars each. as long as they hold air is all i care about.

Just stuff the tires full of old shop rags DS. Of course I'm kidding, but I did just that to all 4 tires on my gokart back when I was 10 or 11yrs old. No money for tubes, so I took the split rims apart, stuffed the tires tight with rags, then bolted them back up. I ran that thing all summer that way! :orangecool:

Pics look great DS, glad to hear you were able to take it for a victory lap!

Daniel, I think someone could run beside him pumping them as he rolled and they still wouldn't have any air in them.

In these modern times maybe rather than rags he could use a couple cans of foam like for sealing cracks.
