That's true. I plan on weighting it out. The 212 in the pic I posted has about 70lbs of liquid per tire and not sure what the weights weigh. And I plan on doing the same to the Ford I want to find some cast weight or just some 1" plate and make some

The pedals work fine for plowing, and reverse is way easier when you slightly extend the pedal's length by 1/2" or so. I used the pedal from my 82 LGT 165 on my 72 LGT 125 and it is perfect perfect!!! On the 83 I made a brand new on complete that was longer on the treadle and a bit taller so when fully depressed the treadle did not touch the floor pan.
They are both are a dream to operate.

I'll try and get a few pics today, might be later though, getting a new water softener installed with a reverse osmosis filtration unit for drinking water supply.
