Seems like the members here are more excited about actual picture updates ;). I hope to get some build time in the near future. Outside of batteries and some contactors I could actually get the tractor functional. ;)

Well I figured I would update this. 

 

The project is not dead, just on life support! LOL. 

 

I really would like to flip the tractor orientation around similar to a fork lift. Then reuse the rear lift as a front lift for attachments. 

 

I have alot of parts just sitting around collecting dust. I really hope I can wrap up the stereo install once and for all in my car and then drag my tractor into my place of work, and tick away at it one lunch hour at a time. ;).

Haha. It would take alot of work. The other devil on my shoulder is telling me to just get the tractor portion of it functional first, then work on the lift and attachments ;).

Anyone know if the frame tubes are black iron pipe or steel?

I'm working on a sketch now for my modifications. I'm going to try to keep the original look to my modifications... So no square tubing, even though it would make life easier. Lol.

Given that bending this pipe would be very difficult... Would you suggest making relief cuts and then weld back together, or mitre cut it to make a 90deg bend?

The frame is made out of black pipe or gas pipe, i just made a new frame. They built these tractors with out spending alot of money. anything they could get cheap thats how they built them.Your not going to bend that pipe, if you want to bend pipe use DOM pipe. if i remember i think it was 1.825 not a nomal size only black pipe

Took the snap rings off so I could remove the oem gears. Looks like a 7/8" shaft with 3/16" keyway. Sweet. This is how I envision them being in place of the original motor. The motor on the left will drive a bolens pto shaft with output on front of tractor. The right motor will connect up to the t92 transmission I have and then hook to the rear end via a 530 chain/sprocket.

Pto motor will be full speed on/off. Right motor will be on a controller for speed adjustment.

 

I will have to cut off the step portion of the shaft on each motor. The knuckle coupler I'm planning to use for the motor/trans connection needs to be flush with the end of the shaft.
