IT STARTED OUT AS A WHEEL HORSE SUBURBAN.  ABOUT THE ONLY THING LEFT IS THE TRANSMISSION AND PART OF THE HOOD.  I'M KINDA PROUD OF IT THOUGH, I WAS BORN ON A "H" FARMALL MY DAD BOUGHT IN 1952 WHEN I WAS 5 YEARS OLD.  I WILL NEVER PULL THE TRACTOR, IT'S JUST FOR GOING TO GET THE MAIL IN MY SMALL TOWN.   SOME OF THE FEATURES INCLUDE:

 

EXTENDED ALUMINUM FRAME

EXTENDED HOOD

2 NOS 8HP KOHLER ENGINES (1995, NEVER HAD OIL IN THEM)

11" TRAILER FENDERS FROM EBAY

SPUN ALUMINUM FUEL CELL WITH ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP.

ALL NEW RUBBER WITH ALUMINUM RIMS

ALL BOLTS AND SCREWS ARE STAINLESS STEEL.

I DID ALL THE PAINTING EXCLUDING THE HOOD AND FENDERS, THEY WERE DONE IN BODY SHOP.

TWO TINY TACHS ON DASH FOR EACH ENGINE.

ELECTRIC CLUTCH ON FORWARD ENGINE IF MORE POWER IS NEEDED.

PROBABLY SOME THINGS I FAILED TO MENTION, HOPE YOU CAN SEEL THE LOVE I HAD FIXING IT UP.

 

 

THANKS FOR LOOKING, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!

Pretty cool. I've never messed with dual engines but a good idea having the second engine on the pto.

   I love it !!!!!!!!!!!!!  looks like the real deal but you can fit in the bed of your truck.  great fab job, all the bits and pieces look good on there.  the proportions are correct, overall very nice looking rig.  something I would like to see in person some day.

You have a lot to be proud of there, you did a very good job.  Everyone knows that I like my original tractors.  But at least you turned it into a Farmall!  :poke:

As we use to say when we were younger "bad to the bone". I agree very well proportioned, the use of materials, love the aluminum with the red, the use of round fenders. I would love to see a video of this. Thanks for sharing.

Great build, :thumbs:  it really turned out nicely even if it does say Farmall on it. :poke:

 

How does it pull, or do you just ride around on it at shows?

Nice job. All the work flows together and look like a factory built GT.
