I am the owner of a Crosley Farm o Road, and while not exactly a garden tractor, It used impliments that were basically garden tractor sized. These impliments are scarce as hens teeth and extremely expensive when they are found. So, after looking at your site, I can see the possibility that some of the impliments that you folks use could be modified for my vehicle. For example, Crosley sold a 10 inch single bottom plow with coulter. Looking at a number of pictures on the site, I see several possibilities. Where and from who do you folks find parts such as these?? If any of you have a small plow to sell like this, I would be interested. Contact me directly at tmkldwwj@yahoo.com , If you want to know or see more on this vehicle, look at www.crosleyautoclub.com and search for farm o roads. Thanks for your help
Dave

Welcome to the Forum, Dave A :welcometogttalk:
You will find that There are many friendly and knowledgable people on here .
I looked at your link and that is one amazing machine!
If its possible we would love to see some pics of your Farm O Road.
I am shure with a little fabbing you should be able to convert an implement from a GT to your Farm O Road.

I will put some pictures from the site on here so everyone can see them easier. :thumbs:

Thanks for the overwhelming welcome. I would post pictures, but right now, The rebuilt engine (44 cu in, 26 1/2 hp overhead cam 4 cyl) is in the garage. The body is at the paint shop, and the frame is in my workshop where I just finished disassembling. I need to straighten a small kink in the front of the frame and then I will begin reassembly. The hydraulics are all finished and I need to make new brake lines as I go. I will aslo need to make a new PTO shaft for it. Another need I have that you guys might help with is tires. I am searching for 450 X 12 tractor tread tires or military lugged tread. If anyone has ideas or suggestionas, they are sincerely appreciated.(by the way, the Brinly-Hardy plow looks promising but is a little more complicated than the Crosley original)

Miller "used to" have them but sold the last they had. Small tire doesn't show anything on the web site but I sent them an inquiry.

COOL looking rig you have there and a big WELCOME to the forum! As to tires, would a 6 x 12 ag tire work? They are fairly common and that is the size I put on my Panzers.

Them things are pretty sweet. I would love to have one for shows, be perfect for carting around at the show plus haul some of your stuff. They look a lot like a Jeep.

Hi Again, just wanted to let everyone know that I am still around with the FOR. The dump bed is now finished and painted, and as soon as I get myself back to snuff, I am ready to coat the frame. I found a set of discs last week at Crosley Nationals so they will move up the list of work to be done. The neat news for those of you here is that the vehicle has been invited to be shown at November's Hilton Head Concours d Elegance as part of their "Motoring Midway" . The theme for the display is "Life on the Farm" and I want to have an impliment or 2 to show with it. I'll get a couple of progress pictures as soon as I can steal the camera from my wife. new granddaughter on the way and she has the camera in her possession constantly.
