Dibs on following Kenny's furrow!

Might have to if I activate one of my grand schemes... That uses a little different offset.

Better tell that to the Alabama Gang!

Good clearance on things now!

So I'm comparing these two photos (remember my eyes are iffy at times) Did you remove the piece that you first had bent to clear?

 

Really looking good :thumbs:

Yes, I took them off and put them in the press. Used a piece of 1"OD iron pipe to bend them around!

 

Got the front tires today! Won't put them on till Saturday, I'm beat. They look to measure about 16.5" in diameter with out air!

Now to see how it plows! I'm sure some tweaking will be needed. I'm going to look into making a mount for the suitcase weights in the front receiver and just pin that there. Then I can remove them for opening the hood.

Awesome job Kenny a GT to be very proud of. Love the choice of boots what a foot print. I've been following your builds & I think you have convinced me on the HF 20 ton press. I have two hitches to make & this would be the thing to have.
