I am pushing to make Mike's show.
I will not be done completely but I do want to have it at Mike's show as a work in progress. I think people will understand that it is an completed project and not a poor job of building a tractor. It should look a lot better come the fall plow days.
Thanks to everybody for your kind comments and patience though this long build.
I do promise an Article on this when complete.

Are you going to have all the duals on it for the show? Also, ever figure out the RPM issue?
By the way, looking great.

Ya Casey, Going to pick up some more hardware after work and get those rears and the weight on tonight. Going to run 2 sets of Massey weights in each rear wheel.
Also got the gearing down to 1 to 1 and all is well. will only have a 7 MPH top end though.

7 Mph top speed isn't all that bad, better it work well than go fast. Besides, you don't want it to roll in a sharp turn. :bigrofl:

It would be wild to get the old girl up on 4 wheels.
I was hoping to I could get the input to the hydros up to 4000 RPMs. That would have got me up to about 11 MPH. But we can live with this. Sure I will make some design changes along the way.

Guys
Have got much done since Tractor Mikes show. I did get a seat from Fleet Farm with arm rests and got the exhaust system on it.
I will get some pics of the individual items soon but here are some pics I had to do when the wheat combine rolled in.
Enjoy.
Here are two of the world largest Gravity boxes. They are quite a load when full.

And this is the world largest Combine that fills them.
