The 1077 is a fairly rough roller but it is also my favorite style ( 66-67 long frame ) WH tractor.The Raider 12 has been redone and was just used for shows so it does not have the mid Tach or the mule drive setup on it and the rear hitch is missing. The biggest issue with the tractor is that the big block K301 Kohler 12HP was replaced with a K181 8HP small block Kohler. The engine sits to low for the belt guard to fit it right,so i will have to raise the engine an inch or so. Then i will have to put the right drive pulley on it. As it sits now it won't shift because the belt guard won't stop the belt when you push the clutch in. Overall this is a very nice tractor.

I played with some different exhaust ideas a few days ago. These are mufflers that a buddy made for me.

Jim, I would be worried about the muffler doing damage to the hood decal. Nice haul, maybe you will come across a gook K301 to drop back in her!

A few more pic's. The Raider has rear wheels off of another brand and the offset makes it more narrow in the rear But i have a cure. I have some with a better offset to set them out a little more with AG's on them !

I agree Brian and i really don't like a stack set up on this style of tractor,i think it interferes with the clean lines of the long narrow hood. I will most likely come up with a under hod or out of the way setup.

If you should decide to put duals on it those wheels would be nice on the inside. Otherwise your right about changing them and looking better.
