I'm new to this Forum. I have a Mead Mighty Mouse Mini Dozer from the early 50's and need some help. I want to restore it to it's original condition. I fund out that there are two parts missing. The Speed reduction gearbox and the main clutch. Does anyone has this parts or knows if these items where used on some other equipment. Does anyone has a repair manual, spare part catalog or owners manual from this dozer (readable copie would by fine). I'm also looking for the original colour, My one is green and yellow I don't think it's original.

Welcome to GTT. Posting picks will help us identify your machine and give clues to its interchange with others. Fortunately, most of the tractor builders used "off the shelf" standard components. Good Luck, Rick

Welcome to the forum!

 

I imagine that Rick is right, the components you need are probably used elsewhere.

Thanks for all replays and the welcome to the forum.

Here are 2 pics of the mini dozer in the current state. It was used by a Carlsbad NM Potash mine. They used it for cleaning out Railroad Boxcars before they loaded Potash sacks into the cars. The reducer gearbox and clutch are missing.The stuff on the back of the dozer is an old auger which has the same Wisconsin Engine as the Dozer. Any help is more than welcom

I found the reducer gearbox and the main parts of the clutch. The parts was laying around the field were I found the dozer. The only parts I wasen't able to find are the clutch operating mecanisem. I could reproduce the parts if I had some Info about them. So, I'm lööking now for a sketch or drawing of the clutch. Some detailed pictures could help too. The drawing in the forum archive doesen't help because it only shows the outside of the clutch without any detail. Contact to an actual owner could also help to get the dozer on the road/field.

Could someone on this forum help me out, please?

Wish I knew something about these. I'd like to see it running, really cool little machine! Can you get pics of what you have? Maybe someone can help figure it out.

Thanks for your support. Pics of the parts I have are useless because someone messed around with them badly. There are parts welded together which should move freely. They even welded the friction plate to a shaft. The forum manuel says there is a Key between crankshaft and the shaft of a steel disc. But there is no slot in the crankshaft or in the disc shaft. Therefor I need original pics or sketches. May be you know someone who has a mighty mouse?

I sure don't, Willi. Just thinking if some folks saw what you are working with, they might be able to give you options on how to fix it. Lots of these older machines shared a lot of common parts at times. Might ring a bell for someone to help you out.

I got in touch with the new Mead Company. They told me that they have nothing left from this dozer. But they said that parts like clutch and reducer gearbox where most likely produced in house them days.

Does any one knows a company that can reline a clutch plate?

Your question stirred something in my memory so I went looking in the farm Show publications. These people should be able to help you.
   www.allfrictions.com
   Info@allfrictions.com
  All Frictions Co. LLC.
  131 Freestone Ave.
  Portland, Conn. 06480
 
I just checked and their web address is good.  
Good luck.
