Well I finally got all of the kinks worked out! I just put the rebuilt starter / generator on. Then I put the NOS snow plow on. This is really a nice setup. I couldn't believe the down pressure on the hydraulics it picked the front end right off of the ground (you can see that in some of the pictures).

I had all four wheels filled with rimguard (beet juice) for extra traction and stability. It added about 50 pounds of weight to the front tires. It also added 150 pounds to the rear wheels (in addition to the 160 pounds in dual wheel weights on the back) for a grand total of 310 pounds of ballast to the rear wheels. I estimate total weight of the tractor now at around 1,400 pounds.

I am hoping with all of this I should be able to move some snow!
