Hi everyone, it's been a long summer. A few weeks back at was at the fair in Centerville, MI, there was an antique tractor display with old GT's so I went to have a look. There was this little 70's-80's Ford factory 4x4, it appeared to be garden tractor sized, can't remember what it was. The front axle drive mechanism had what appeared to be the same worm drive Massey Ferguson had on the 650 tiller. I think that drive is used on my grandpa's monkey ward 2 stage snow blower too. The wheels are turning in my mind. Anybody know a cheap source for that worm drive box?

I have to build two 12 hydras into one and will have an extra body and frame left over to fool around with, I was thinking of narrowing an old GM HO72 full float rear axle and using it in the rear and making the front axle similar to the Ford I saw. Or GM HO33 rear made steer axle with dana 44 outer knuckles. The transfer case could possibly be fashioned from an extra hydra or gear transaxle 1/4 turned in the chassis. Things would have to be heavily modded to make them work together but, that's half the fun.

Suzuki samuari axles could be made to fit too:smile1:

that sure looks like what I saw. They are the smallest 4x4 tractor I've ever seen. More information would be helpful.

massey had a small 4x4 garden tractor......its somewhat identical to the ford above.......the massey model numbers were 1010 and 1020. they were available with 54 and 60 inch mid mount mower decks. I'm guessing someone else built these tractors for ford and massey....they all look similar......maybe yanmar????

Here are some pics of a 4wd Cub Cadet conversion I saved years ago. I'm not sure if I kept the text on how he built it...
