Been working on the GT this week while off work. Tore it all down and now going back together. I've decided to make an MM clone tho, plenty of reg WH's to look at around here. Check out my colors, about same as later model MM's. Need to come up with nice mix name for the side of hood decals. Using horse related and Moline or reversed. Moline Charger? Bronco Moline? MM used the G in many models, like G-950 or so. G14? G140? G1400? Kinda big on last one. Here's a couple pix so far.

I like the G 1400, reminds me of the G 1000. Are you going to make the head lights look like the Moline head lights in their grill?

I have a Wheel Horse GT-14. Your MM/GT-14 will look very nice from the pictures you have posted. I like the GT-1400

Brian, didn't know if I should mess with headlights or not. That would be kinda neat, but at moment don't know how to start mods. Have other issues with tractor before I get to those.

Others....bigger numbers take more space and not much on side of grill. Might need diff spot for that.

Pretty cool loader, but worth more than my tractor. Even his parts tractor has rear-end problems, so does mine! And, too far away as most good ads are.

Got idea from Red Square on how to run my axle. I took my charger and ran a belt off the pto to the axle on the GT14 and Presto!, it Works! Ran forward and backward and hydraulics moved and good to go. Was thinking I had a dud! Now to get axle back out, clean up and paint, then back in. Then can finish assembly of tractor. Yippee! :dancingbanana:

A little progress and pix. Have axle painted and back in, started to add some sheet metal. Can't do much with right side till I get drive set-up and the park brake. Need some bushings for brake. Engine is setting in now, have to connect stuff and make a wire harness for tractor. I could use some pictures of how the choke and throttle cables are run on one. This is not orig engine, I've forgotten how they were hooked up, cables were bad and didn't work anyway, and not sure they were stock attached. Gonna need help in that area. Should be starting it soon, hoping it runs. I took off head, found stuck intake. Pushed right down again and been turningit over alot and no sticking. SO, put new gasket on and bolted up head again. NOW, she has good compression! Pix here.

Real nice work. Put a mower on it and cut the grass with it while all the neighbor guys look at it and wonder what it is....
I get that with the panzer. Guys will actually stop on the street when I cut the grass. And I joke with the wife that all the other guys in the neighborhood are jockeying to have the 2nd coolest tractor/mower around.
