A Frankentractor? I'm using the front section from a 716, but putting an Eaton 10/Peerless 2500 in the back! Plus a 3-point lift!

I played with it some more today! The steering was still stiff and I traced that back to the column. So out it came! Took everything apart and cleaned the crud out.The gears were packed full of dirt. And the bushings were rusty/crusty! A little TLC and it does much better now.

Not sure! It's an Allis in the front half, but Ford & Sears out back! Thought about AlFord till the Sears got into the mix!

Update! Been working on this some more. Yesterday, I clean up the 3-point and painted it. Looks much better!2015-08-15 09.03.13.jpg

 

Worked on the fittings for the Hyrdo fill and vent.

2015-08-15 09.03.26.jpg

 

Got to measuring and found that the Eaton input shaft is 3/4" off center to the right side. So I had to open the hole through the Allis frame some more to clear the u-joint.

2015-08-15 09.37.18.jpg

 

Then it was time to align things up since I now have a drive shaft. Took a few tries, but I have it close. Still out to a 50" wheelbase.

2015-08-15 10.50.28.jpg     2015-08-15 10.50.55.jpg

 

Here you can see the white mark for center of the Eaton to align too.

Since I was mocking things up, I threw on a few more things to get an idea how it looks.

2015-08-15 11.07.29.jpg

 

Now to decide if I want this wheelbase or to take it back to 48"!

I prefer the longer wheelbase for ground engagement work. The front end doesnt lift off as much.

Got some more done today! I think I could put a jack under the back and swap the tires around now!

Any diagonals in the plan, or plate steel all the way?

Been thinking that over Casey. I am looking at another mount point using the 2 lower holes from where the BGB was mounted. That will go down to the 1" X 1" square tube on a cross brace. I'll muddle that over and see what else may be needed. Trying to not use too much plate so the heat can escape.

I am rethinking that under seat fuel tank as it raises the seat way up there. I have a 3(?) gallon tank that may fit under the hood. Have to get the engine set in there to see.

I have never had any heat issues with my Eaton 11 units!! Make that thing rugged!! You don't want it twisting and folding up there!! That's a great point for mounting attachments like a grader blade or FEL ;-) . looking pretty cool so far Kenny keep on truckin'
