Does anyone have dimensions for the rear weight box?  I have a picture but no dimensions.

I haven't even seen one, so I'm no help here!

I wouldn't think it was critical.  Not so wide it sticks out past the rear wheels, not sticking so far back that light amounts of weight cause wheelies, not so high that your center of gravity raises and makes you unstable on hills.   Beyond that, sorry, I've never had a weight box.

I have a huge snowblower on mine and use wheel weights(50#each) and about 200# total on the rear 3 point hitch. I have no issues.

Thanks for the dimensions, I needed them as well, was just given a open side 145 with a 2 stage snowblower, 50" deck, front attach plow, cultivator and a few spare parts tractors. So I will need to make a weight box for it to gain some traction on our slope on the driveway.

Your welcome!
That's quite a score you got there!
What kind of cultivator do you have?
And here's a couple of pictures of the weight box.
It attaches on the top with an "S" shaped rod thru a hole in the back of the tractor.

Can't remember what kind of cultivator, I will reap my haul in the spring when the snow melts. My neighbour gave it all to me after her husband passed away. She knows that I love Fords and went with her husband to get all this stuff 2 years ago. Also she is not mechanically inclined which was another reason to give it all to me.

Also, what is the length of those bars that attach to the rear axle? for the top piece, I might see about making an attachment to the upper rear PTO bracket. for the upper mount.

The centerline of the pin is 9-5/8" from the front edge of the box. It is 1-1/2" above the bottom of the box. I do not have a pto and 3 point hitch on mine. If you do, you may need to position the box further back. Or, maybe make a box to fit the three point. Joe
