I built the tracks from 6 inch wide round baler belting and the track guides from 1 1/4 x 1/4 flat steel and the grousers from ! 1/2 x 1/4 flat steel. The front wheels are on a carriage that moves 3 inches forward so you can tighten the tracks.
I had to redo my braking system and modifiy hydraulic trailer brakes to fit the Dodge rear end and use 1967 Ford master cylinders to control the brakes.
I mounted Massey sheet metal to it and I think the old girl came out looking kind of mean. Here are some build pictures.
I'll get a new picture of it with the paint job and the dozer blade on it. Hope you guys like lots of pictures!
ok here are a couple of pictures of it done and getting dirty. I was plowing in pretty dry soil but it did dig in and move some dirt.
And here it is playing " KING OF THE HILL "
There you go Dan!!!!!
