trying to resurrect a TT Ford truck, although I started with this -

Ford Truck
Needs some TLC, but ran when parked... probably only needs a battery and a carb kit.

:smilewink:  Actually that is the case.  Was parked along side an alley the early 1950's behind a small shed and forgotten for 60 years. 

The alley was abandoned by the city and the shed rotted down and was removed. 

As far as a battery and carb kit...... Well, they are just a small part of a very long list.  :thumbs:

BTW, Frank,

Welcome to GTT!!

That's a kewell tractor you have there.  I've amassed quite a selection [collection?] of those over the years. 

Also [somewhat] trying to resurrect a TT Ford truck, although the lack of progress has been pitiful the last couple years. 

 

I started with this - yes,  I'm an idiot.  :(

Found a MUCH better cab and genuine Ford script flatbed out in your neck of the woods.

Some of us enjoy the journey not just the destination.  if your interested in the destination you could have purchased  a completed restoration.  Enjoy the journey and good luck.

I am having trouble finding anything on the kewell.  Im thinking the MID in the id on the tractor indicates it is a Midland ward.  Thanks for the suggestion.

I am pretty sure the Clinton Engine that came with the tractor is not the correct engine.  The pulley's do not match.  Tractor Pulley is a three step 8", 5", 2.5" Pulley with a 3/4" bore.  The engine pulley is a 3,4,5 on a 3/4' bore.  The pulley is on a hub about 1 1/8 OD and 3/4 bore.  if i could find weldable pulleys wiith the 1 1/8 bore, i think i could weld up a 3 step with the right pulley od's.    Any ideas where i might find eithe a pulley matching the tractor pulley or a 1 1/8 hub abour 3 inches long.  thanks for your help.  i hav enjoyed reading the posts and folks seem to be friendly and cooperative.

That looks like fun, but I think I would make the engine run first, before chasing and making parts. One of the pics looks like the housing has either a crack or a casting flaw in it. I would get it running before doing much of anything else.

Nice Model A,s, by the way.

I believe the engine is correct,this simplicity built M/W is early 50s and close in age to yours,M/W supplied there own engine's,if you can take that pulley down so it rides closer to the engine when reversed it should work,the secondary pulley is adjustable on my M-1 in the pics

Pic 6 has some funny lines tha look like they are on the block. But pictures, as we know, can lie to us. Ask anyone that's been on a blind date!

Have fun with the project.

These look very close to my engine.  Will you give me the number on the engine similar to the photo i sent.  

The Pulley on the Tractor is a three step pulley 8in, 5in and 2.5 in.  The 8 in pulley is a 5.8 wide belt and the 5in and 2.5in are for 1.2 inch belt.is by chance the 5/8 inch pulley for an attachment (cycle mower, etc)  and the two 1/2 inch pulley are for two speeds of the tractor drive.  Thanks for any lhelp you can give me.  i have found a carburetor so am wouking on getting the engine running.

That is the same no. on my engine.  Hate to keep bothering you.  what is the diameter on the pulleys on the engine.The pulley that is on the engine i have is  3.5 inch, 3.0 inch and 2.5 inch.  the Pulley on the tractor is 8 inch, 5 inch and 2.5 inch.  By secondary are you meaning the pulley on the tractor?  Thanks for your help.

Frank
