Will the hubs from a 520h work on this? I think they both are 1 1/8" axles.

That plastic gas tank was always a bad idea. Maybe you could put one somewhere else?

Also on tank, many times the sheetmetal shield on Back side of tank is taken out. It keeps exhaust and engine heat away from the tank. That seemed more important to me when fixing mine. I had to buy a tank and shield for mine. Far as moving, there just isn't much room for anything under tin of this tractor, pretty compacted with internals and that is big engine too. I painted mine MM yellow and red and had silver on the tank out front. Sold it to a Horse collector that just didn't understand why I would paint like that! The hydro rear is a little diff than the smaller units, even tho they look similar. Why change hubs?? Have four bolt wheels and want 5? That will reduce from 15" tires to 12 or ? then? The 15's are harder to find, and ags I think are no longer made in that size.

I put a solid grill from a newer GT-14 on mine (1969 model) to protect the fuel tank.

David, you might consider moving the coil and condensor up to the top of the heat shield like it is on the '72... actually that is how I had it so the bolt holes are already there.

I'm tired of pushing these in and out of the shop. For whatever reason the ramps seem to be getting steeper. I think this may be a better parts machine than a tractor.
