Hello and welcome to GTtalk! very glad you found this forum! That sounds like a fine project you are working on. I have a '69 110 that I traded for a short while ago that i see potential in. Haven't done alot with it yet, I just discovered this week that the old 181 can still produce spark. The tractor sat outside for many years before I found it. I am working up an order for carb parts for it next.
Have fun in your rebuild, I have not done such a project before, but I am sure there are folks at this site that have the experience you are looking for.

Again, welcome to the site!

:welcometogttalk:

First of all welcome to the site you'll find lots of help and ideas here. Don Campbell shows his building a mini 4020 and while in progress he builds a narrow front for another tractor. This is the link to his build. You'll probably want to read the whole thing but for now hit page 10 and then on the right side look for #144, that's where he starts the narrow front. I'm sure Don will help you with any of your questions. Again, welcome.

Well,
Let me address 2 questions so far. I looked and couldn't find where I should update my status. And I will take many pics, how hard is it to put them on this site ?
Thank-you all for the replies and warm welcome !

KennyP,
I did see that drawing you had saved and have been thinking about how it all works. I have been studying some front end rebuilds and looked at a kit. I do thank you for taking the time to help out.
