  Sure does stand well now, you lifted  the front a little. :thumbs:

 

 

Here are before, then after pics.  Yes, she has a much better stance, and an full axle tilt under a full lock turn, tires clear everything with room to spare now.

I tried editing the triple quote a couple of my posts back, but it won't let me do away with the one quote box, and wouldn't let me put text above it or below it, so I just made this post instead.

I finished the bumper, got some satin black paint on it, and headlights mounted into it.  Once it cures enough to handle, I'll go ahead & put it back on the tractor.  I ran test wires to the headlights and they are bright!

  I  also welded on 3/8 x 1" ribs onto the front of the bumper to further protect the headlights from damage.

Thanks. That was almost 24 hours. I didn't know I could hold that long. :wave:

 

Looks good, and yes, they're bright. :thumbs:

Got my bumper mounted back on the JB, and got the headlights wired.  Took it for a spin after dark, and she lights a big path!  They are 55 watt quartz halogen.

Done a couple things to Hogzilla today.  First, I made a cover plate for behind the bumper, which will hide the wires, headlights, and horns.   Then, after driving & finding that the diff lock lever didn't stick out far enough for easy engagement, I built a pedal to slip over the 1/2 shaft.  Welded a steel bushing to the plate, then drilled & tapped for an allen set screw.  Plenty of room left and will make for easy use off the differential lock.  Likely about all I'll get done today, as afternoon chores begin soon.

What kind of a transaxle are you using that has a Diff lock?

What were they used in?

This hydro/diff came out of a Simplicity Sunstar, and is the exact same system as under the JD430 diesel.   The hydro is Sundtrand model 15, coupled to a Tecumseh Peerless 2600 series, with Hi/Lo range & diff lock.
