More updates. Didn't get a chance to work on it much... But have some studs installed on the front axle and started mocking up the front grill. e2cbca1ed0cc4dfe703a0acec32cd86a.jpgb782953240b4fe8cddd7c34b2a040fa0.jpgb0feecb24ed32896c77c8ba46fb421c2.jpg5671223fcda46a5792b4fdaff8d3ad62.jpg

Slick ideas you have here.   That frame is shaping up good.

This is the sort of thing that I do myself and I'm enjoying watching your progress on this project.

 

Question .. are you going to cap the angled front ends of the rectangle tube or leave them open ?

I'm going to cap it with some plate, it's going to have a mouth cut in it so the angle piece dies into the tube on either side.

Cleaned off the rear end frame rail welds and dry fitted the frame. Looks like the left and right tubes are at different Heights. Might also block up off the rear a couple inches for more ground height.

That is going to be a wicked looking tractor.

Are you going to fab up a long hood section to extend back to the steering wheel ?

Yes sir. I'm hoping to keep a similar oe steering system. Working in this tractor is nice. Breaks up my day working on it during my lunch hours. Lol.

Hopefully get back to this project today during lunch. I had been working on some C-Channel frame rail perches for the rear end. 

 

Also purchased a VOLVO PV 544 4 SPEED TRANSMISSION from eBay for the tractor. More I thought about it, the more I like having the gears easily accessible rather than having to change a belt position. Besides my reversing wheel is shot.

Got the perches cut and temporarily put in place. Going to bring the fenders in and then work on leveling things up and tack welding it.

With the greater horse power of the engine you're using, I like your idea of using a transmission instead of the original V-belt drive.

It is shaping up nice.

Thanks!

I have created a lunch hour game plan... Good weather I work on my car stereo project. Bad weather I work on the tractor. Lol.

Right now I'm still between the Kubota and the magnum 20. If the magnum 20 runs well after my maintance/testing I will run it on this project. Otherwise I will try to fit the Kubota.

Damn software vendors have been taking my lunch hours.. Managed to create some plywood 15.5" OD wheels to replicate the ones I'm looking to run. Have yet to level up the rear end and weld in perches but couldn't help seeing the stance. Will have to shim the rear mounting area a little bit to remove the reverse rake.
