I am pretty sure the diff in my tractor is a semi fluid application, the oil is running out the ends of the axles, they just have tin dust covers, and the diff cover being a big lid with no filler suggests a semi fluid.

 

Got a set of front wheels well under way, just need to drill the holes, I will get photos soon, I got x2 wide 8" rims and cut the sides off and have welded 1/4" centers into them.   

 

They wont fit in my lathe witch is a problem because I need to center drill them for the hole saw to cut the hub hole, I have a plan to center them as best as I can on my record player and hold a pen witch should mark a circle to center punch.

I started to make a new sear from the bottom of an old steel tank or something someone had turned into a blacksmiths forge

This is the seat the tractor has now, someone has welded it on along with all that tube round the diff, I removed all of that and I will wack the seat off today, its very rusty and ferns are growing out of the back.

A bit of cutting and welding and the new seat is fitted, those brackets off the LH side of the diff I will mount my DC arc welder, it can be driven from the sprocket witch ran the rear mower, I will just weld a pulley on,
