A few years ago I built a custom H14. I took an H14 and put a Briggs twin 18HP L head engine in it. That tractor is one of the best tractors I have ever restored for snow blowing. I call it an 1856. I took videos of it in the Summer and Winter snow blowing.
Anyway I was thinking about doing another project. This time I'm toying with the idea of putting my Vanguard V twin 16HP engine from my 1669 into a tube frame tractor. It only has 620 hours on it and runs great. I am also wondering about putting the entire rear end including the Eaton 11 onto a tube frame. A few rough measurements tell me that the height is the same between the Eaton 10 rear end and the Eaton 11. The Eaton 11 rear end is wider which is ok. The Eaton 11 spins opposite of the Eaton 10 I believe I can change a plate inside to make it spin the opposite way.
There would be a lot of consideration as far as the driveline goes, treadle pedal linkages, brakes and mounting of the rear end if even possible. If I decide to do this it would be in the Spring. I can take pictures as I go about the project. Does anyone think this could be done?
