I just went to the photobucket link for the pics and he has a Cub PTO clutch adapted to chain drive for the front differential. Cant tell what the Cub clutch is attached to, though.

Very nice looking machine you have. Looks like it was a very labor intensive project for the guy who built it and he must be bald from scratching his head during the process.

As the others have said welcome to the forum.

Thanks for the pictures! That looks like a well engineered design!

I also noticed the cub PTO for the engagement! That was a very good idea by the builder!

Wow thanks for the pictures! Still trying to figure out how it all goes together back at the transaxle. The guy did a great job! Moved the gas tank to the front, moved the battery under the seat. How about the brakes? Does it still use the original brakes?
Look forward to seeing and hearing more!


The foot brake still works normally but there is no parking brake.

I just went to the photobucket link for the pics and he has a Cub PTO clutch adapted to chain drive for the front differential. Cant tell what the Cub clutch is attached to, though.


I added 4 more pictures of the clutch assembly. Hope this helps. The clutch is bolted directly to the brake drum.

Did some detail work like add a ball hitch and trailer tie down bolts. Anchored the battery better. Greased and oiled. She is ready to be sent to work on my daughters small farm.
I am getting the back blade sand blasted and primed. It will work great to grade their long gravel drive.DSCN1604.JPG

The BH is ready to depart for farm duty. Just hoping the old girl will serve well. Put in a new battery and starter.

The back blade is nearly finished. Sand blasted everything I could and primed. Just the blade itself is left to paint red. Once that is done and attached, I will post pictures from her new home and maybe doing some work.

Looking good! Love the ags on front and rear. What size are they? Wondering if they are standard or if he up sized them.

Thanks Sacsr. They are standard size 12" and 8" tires.

Not sure how the front wheels are attached. Looks like just a long bolt tightened against the spindle plate. The wheels spin even with a load so they are not slipping on the bolt.

Scooped a load of horse manure and the 4WD is needed for sure. She just spins on the wet manure otherwise.

This old rig is just too much fun! Scooping horse poop inside the paddock. Anything bigger would not fit. The back blade works well with down pressure scraping down to cement then scooping it up. The 4WD is a must or the rear tires just spin. My daughter hardly got a chance to play with it.

I did shear a bolt on the drive shaft near the clutch. Lifted the front up off the ground with the bucket and had easy access to the shaft coupler. Replaced the 1/4-20 bolt and lock nut and was back in business.

That is a neat blade. I like the tilt feature.
