Photo Let's Try Again !

Hi Gang, my homemade tractor project is back on the operating table. After countless "Fun" hours, the little 3 hp. Newway Upright just couldn't pull the load. I have always admired the big toys of guys like Ken Majeski, but could never get the $$$ together to pick one up. I just threw this Big Fairbanks on her and I know it will be enough power. I bought a reconditioned carb from Ed at H&M last year. Thanks Ed, Nice Carb ! Sorry Paul Spence the engine is not an IHC but the chassis is. I think you will give me a 1/2 thumbs up. Get ready Mr. Tremble, I may have a few questions on this one. Thanks folks on this site for your continuous help.

Awesome job!! I am going to make something like that soon, but I plan on making one with about a 10 H.P. engine THAT will be a job, the hard part will be finding the wheels to match it. Would like to find about 5' steel for the drivers. Good luck to me huh

Now that looks like a tractor engine. Drop me a line or two if you like,

Smoke: Nice job. Someday I just might try something like that . What is the IHC base tractor you used?

Paul, that chassis is a 1020 McCormick Deering. What you see is how I found it in the woods, no motor, radiator or sheet metal. Of course, my mind started rolling at that point. I just have to get the transmission together, pulleys and gear drives set up to make it go. My father in-law has seen some of my redneck designs and when he saw that big motor on that chassis, he said " boy you are going to blow yourself up someday". Lot of fun making the parts to get these things moving.
