Ted sent me a couple pics of his project to share. The first is the frame he built with the Powerking rear end and the second is the process of building the engine cover.

Thanks Doug!...I tried to send 2 more, I think they're lost in space somewhere.I have the clutch and trans all done in the frame.Fabrication takes a lot of time! This will never be a real Shaw, but it should at least look like one....Ted.

Here are the pics of the trans in the frame.

Are you planning on direct connecting the engine or are you going to have a gear reduction with the chain sprocket?

Doug, I'm going to run a roller chain from the engine to a short jackshaft, and from that to the trans.I'm using the same size sprockets so it all runs at engine speed, but if I have to add more reduction I can change the transmission sprocket.I want to use the jackshaft to drive a small hyd. Pump and an alternator, I think I can tuck them in kind of out of sight around the flywheel area which will be covered up like on a real Shaw.Thanks for all the help!....Ted.

Actually, on the R12, the gen and hyd pump was mounted outside the frame and ran off the front pulley. BUT.....what you are doing should work.

I forgot to mention, this trans has a nice parking brake setup, so I decided to leave it on.Much better than having to do it with latches on the brake pedals.The only thing I'm worried about is the reverse ratio, these truck transmissions have a real low low and reverse.I hope it doesn't back up painfully slow.

I may hsve to put the alternator up on the frame as you said, I think I can at least get the pump hidden away though.I'll have to cross that bridge when I get to it.Thank you!

IMG_1271.JPG This is what the original generator and hydraulic pump set up looks like.  The inner sheave would be used for the cutter bar or rotary mower.  The pump is a Hydreco.  Later models used a Vickers pump.  Tractor is a 1949 with 40L1 loader attachment.

Thanks for the picture Cliff! It looks like a notch is cut in the front pulley for a starter rope. Where did they mount the hydraulic tank? I'm going to the Zagray Farm show near my home this weekend, I hope there will be some Shaw's there to look at. Thanks again, Ted.

I think i just answered my own question, looks like the reservoir is right under the pump section.Didn't notice that at first.

Cliff will likely be at Zagray. We had the national shaw meet there in May. Didn't have a real big turnout.  Were you there then?

Maybe you could sweet talk Cliff into bringing an R12 out.

No, I won't be there. I just came out for the Shaw meet and VGTCOA  regional that we had there in the spring. Cliff has a shovel that stays there permanent.
