Holding up a set of footrests from a parts Massey 7. They seems to sit in there nicely. Might be a winner on these also.

On a side note, I've been contemplating more engine power. I have a good k341 on the shelf awaiting something to power. Problem is, it's from a 300 which has the incorrect block. Anyone know what machines to look for that would have the correct "narrow" k341? Anyone have one they wanna swap with me?

I put a k341 in my uncles H-1 140, just swapped the oil pan and cut the mounting ears off of the block.

Short update on this project. I've spent some time accumulating parts and pieces to finish this build. Been occupied with an engine swap in my 1655. Now that it's getting close to completion, it was time to start looking back at the 140.

Got a set of 455 rear wheels and 26x12 ags.
Massey 1655 front spindles and wheels
18x8.50 front tires.
Massey 14/16 complete 3 point hitch
Sears rear fenders
Massey 7 foot rest.

Also, I found a K341 from a Cub 1650 which is the correct block for this tractor. If I can get the guy to come down on price, that'll join the club here.

I think these ingredients will build a sweet 140.20171104_150425.jpg 20171104_150442.jpg

Looking for some suggestions on a tunnel cover and seat mount. I’m planning on a metal pan seat set on a spring. I’ve been brain storming but no lights have turned on yet.

Gonna need something to set it for pushing around! That is built into the original seat pan.

It now has a 2 speed/locking diff rearend. So, no need for a hydro release. It now has neutral.

Got around to messing with the 140 a bit. Got a plan in my head and started cutting. After taking 2 big sections, I kinda wished I would've left some in. Oh well, I'll have to weld some pieces back in. Things looked different in my head haha. I even drew it up on the pan with a marker to "visualize". I'm going to swap the rear wheels/tires for the ones I plan on keeping on it. The Gator wheels stick out too far for my liking.20171127_162758.jpg
I also took a chunk out the rear for the 3 point setup.

Mind you, this is a "rough" draft of sorts. It'll get better.
