Update

Some much needed parts arrived, internal trans-axle parts.

and the brake assembly

Also got the rear fenders and sleeve hitch it was missing.

 

All were installed and fit good, trans-axle now much closer to being in working condition, BUT I found 2 more problems with it.

 

1 - twisted off axle shaft.

2 - damaged shifter fork for the PTO

So the trans-axle was put back together with all the parts including the broken axle shaft so I can figure out where to mount the motor and batteries.

I also picked up a set of IH cub wheel weights, mounted them to the rear tires I'm going to use for it.

Thanks to Scott, Will and Alan for getting these much needed parts for me.

MOTOR

 

Here is were I figure the best place to put the motor on the tractor, straight line to the input shaft of the trany and tucked in out of the way as much as possible without interfering with anything else on the tractor.

Motor shaft 1" keyed

Trany input shaft 3/4" drilled, no keyway.

9" from end of motor to end of tray shaft.

Plan on using 2 u joints with a short shaft between them, going to have to shim the trany shaft from 3/4" to 1" to except a 1" u joint.

Already bought 2 - 1" u joints for it.

Chain goes from that to a screw on the top of the battery box to keep the hood from hitting the frame. The chain is pretty common chain. Can take a picture tomorrow of it.

It's good to see that things are coming together for you on this project.

Do you have enough room for the battery pack?

Front Tires

From what I can find out they came with 16x6.50/8 or 4.00/8  tires.

The one I have has the 16x6.50/8, one of the tires is cut up good in the tread, even with a tube in it I don' know if it will hold up. ???

It also came with 1 - 5.70/8, I kinda like the look it, beefier looking than the 4.00/8 and not wide like a turf tire.

 

16x6.50/8 left, 5.70/8 center, 4.00/8 right

Doug, The 16x6.50/8 is what all of my D4-10s have on them. It's you, put on what you like !! :thumbs:

 

Can't wait to see it with the batteries in it.

I agree that the 570 look is very nice.
Will the batteries weigh more than the engine did? Would that have any bearing on the choice? Will the skinny ones sink in faster in wet conditions with the batteries?

Any chance on saving/rewelding that axel?

I got another axle on it's way to me.
