That's a very nice find Ray! As always, I'm sure that you'll do an awesome job on the build up! And as a bonus, we'll get a blow-by-blow description of it too! Love to watch your stuff unfold Ray!

Ray, I enjoy reading about your builds. As said above, you give a detailed description of what you are doing and why. Plus the pics finish to explanation. I'm sure this will be another awesome build. I'll be lurking along. LOL

That is one unique bit of old iron. I'm looking forward to your build. Thanks for posting the pictures.

I've decided to move this up on the "to do" list.
Initially, this wasn't going to get worked on until after the 46 Bean Cutler and the 47 Ridemaster were finished.
However, I already have two Ridemasters that I show now so adding two more of that style tractor isn't going to make much difference in my display.
This is something completely different and would add another point of interest at the shows so I'm going to get it ready for next season.

Sounds like a plan has formed. Great to see builds. I hope this fall to get some things going. Course, will probably get rained out then. LOL

Thank you all for taking the time to respond.
It's nice to know that some one is getting some enjoyment out of these post and that there are other people out there that think weird old things like this are sort of neat.

I would like to say that this probably won't be too big of a project to re-build this but I've said that before and have ended up having to eat my words.
So I'm not going speculate on this one.
I'll just tear into it and see how it all works out.

Construction should start in the fall.

Ray, your tractor was actually a D series walk behind. They never made a K. The one in the Shaw forum was called a K because of the Briggs model K eng that was on it. It didn't have a Shaw tag. I'm betting it would have been a D3T. (3HP) If the model B on yours was original, yours would have been a D2T. (2HP) The D4T and D5T both used Z Briggs engines. If you look in my post titled "Another Shaw Tractor" You will see an RD series. That was Shaw's first riders and were made from the D series walkers. Can't wait to see the finished product!

Thanks Doug for that information.
When I picked this up, I took the enclosed trailer and the tractor is still inside it so I haven't bothered to look for a tag on the tractor itself yet.
I know absolutely nothing about these so I appreciate any information that is sent my way.
I'm assuming the engine is most likely the original engine for the Shaw but I don't really know for sure.

OK ... the tractor shows are done for the summer and it is time to get to work on another project.
This tractor is going to be "Marie's Tractor" so I've decided to put it ahead of the other projects on my "To Do" list.

You may remember that I didn't like the looks of the home made front axle with the wheelbarrow tires.
I took this tractor to the Buckley show two weekends ago and the Blanchard show last weekend so I didn't want to tear the tractor apart until after those shows.
I did however, work on the new front axle while waiting for the shows to come up.


Using a metal cutting disc on the grinder, I started cutting the long hubs off the steel wheels.

103.jpg


This is the side of the wheel that will mount on the axle so the hub is cut off flush with the base of the wheel center.

104.jpg


A short section of hub is left on the other side of the wheel.

105.jpg


The hubs are removed from the axle.

107.jpg


The center of the axle hubs are larger than the hole in the wheels.
The wheels are to big to machine on nay of my equipment so I took them to a machine shop to have the a counterbore machined in them.

108.jpg


Now they fit snugly on the axle hubs.

109.jpg


The mounting flange on the axle hubs is larger than the center of the wheel.
I put the axle hubs on the lathe so I can turn down the outside diameter of the mounting flange.

110.jpg


The finished mounting flange diameter.

111.jpg


Here's how one of the axle hubs looks on the wheel.

Here is new front axle and wheels that will go on the tractor.
