They look really close to the ones on George's HD-12.

I don't think his are Duro.

 

His are Goodyear Terra like what's on my original condition JBI.

Right now I gotta stay with the fronts I have. A $ thing.  Also, with the heavy duty steering gearbox in this column, I'll never add power steering.  Besides, I want to keep it as close to original "looking" as possible.

Another short video clip, but no load attached.  I haven't felt my best today, so sorry I didn't go to the trouble of hooking to anything.  It is lots quieter since my maiden test drive video, and now it has the new tires/wheels on it.

I was putting on the headlights to be non-working then figured I'd at least check the sealed beams that were in them.  One was good, and after a while digging, I found another working light.  So I went ahead & wired them up.  I already had a power wire ran up front from a switch anyway.  These lights are gnarly, so they fit the tractor!  :D

The "Rat Rod" look is almost complete.  I am bidding on a taillight I hope to install on the left rear fender just like it came with.

Messing with ther HD-12 today while it's been pouring rain, it hit me the hydraulic spool has no float position.  This will make it difficult to plow, as when the rear tires hit a low spot, the tractor will lose traction due to the plow holding it up.  So I built a lever system to allow the rear lift to float upward in such cases.  No pics as I didn't want to take the camera out with it so wet & all, so I'll get a pic later.  It's nothing fancy though, just a crude fast job.

So you made up a slotted arrangement, much like on a MF12

sleeve hitch?

I did the same on the MF8E I added the hydraulics to back in the fall.

Something has to give, or stuff breaks.
