I got the Page up on the lift and have started repairing/rebuilding/replacing parts on it. Each time I go to the shop to work on this I am more inclined to believe this is a very cobbled up Page wanna be tractor.Misalignment of pieces and sloppy welds lead me to that assumption. Here are a few pics of what the rear end looked like, how the brakes work and my replacement front end parts.

I find it hard to believe that the front end that was on that tractor was a factory made piece It had pieces added on and sagged in the middle.

Looks like you are making some headway, and that's the same brake set up in my '64 Page tractor. The welds on my tractor are pretty crude, also. It's just how these machines were built, though. At over 50 years old, it still hauls out firewood and fires right up. I'm working on a '56 PK now so I can retire the Page for the most part and get to restoring the Page. Just about everything is shot on the PK except the rear end, so a complete tear down and rebuild is under way.

Your replacements look much stouter ! Is it possible the front sway was from being dropped off a trailer or from a front loader overload or somehow just stressed beyond normal use ? 50 years is a long time of potential abuse. By the looks your parts should outlive most of us !
