I just got my Page running and driving. I found some millitary tires that fit the rear. The transmission looks almost identical to yours. See attached video

I tried playing the videos, but I can't on this device, Tom. Your transmission should say T92-1 on the right hand side. Post a pic of your Page here if you can, thanks.

That's alright Tom. Ah, I remember this tractor now. I'm glad to hear that you got it going! That Page won't have a T92 transmission in it. The early rear engine riders like that had a different transmission set up, but The clutch set up may be the same. If it is, it's the same 6 1/2" clutch disc and pressure plate as some Farmall Cubs.

The sleeve for the front axle beam pivot was worn and rusted. This made the axle beam very loose and sloppy on the pivot pin. The sleeve was just welded to the front of the beam, so the back of the beam really didn't have much support. The pivot pin is just a piece of 1" round rod, so I used a piece of a damaged Simplicity sleeve hitch to make a new sleeve. I filed out the hole in the axle beam so that the new sleeve would pass through the beam and but up against the back of the beam. I welded the new sleeve to the front and back of the beam, then I cut the sleeve to length. The front axle assembly fits nice and snug now, so the front end won't be flopping around on the tractor. I just have to install a couple of washer spacers in front of the sleeve when I install the front axle assembly. With all of the welding repairs done, I can finally get to priming, painting and assembling the tractor. There's still a ways to go, but seeing it come together will be the fun part!

Thanks Kenny. These little fix it jobs take some time, but it makes for a better machine when restored. Can't have new shiny paint and sloppy steering. My C-clamps fit just right into the front of the frame rails to hold the axle beam in line while welding.

I got quite a bit done over the weekend, and my goal was to take it for a ride today. I just assembled the steering and put the seat assembly in place to try it out. So far so good mechanically, so now it's time to relocate the gas tank, make a replacement hood, and prep everything for paint. Still lots of work ahead, but it was great to take it for a spin!

I just about finished fabricating the new hood, so now I'm getting close to painting this tractor.

The Page is coming along well GB. I'm getting some paint on things before assembling them. The tractor will get painted completely when it's mostly assembled with the greenish color below. The rims, weights, rear hubs, seat, and steering column set collars will be red. The front engine pulley, muffler, and air cleaner will be black. I can't wait to see it all painted up! I just put the engine back in today after painting the frame where the engine sits. I still have some metal prep work to do before everything is ready for paint. The hood was a challenge to make, but It turned out fine. Thanks for the compliment!
