Very interesting photos sent to me of an early K model GMC made into a tractor.

Finally cut off unneeded portion of 1931 Dodge frame. The cut off portion was heavily modified and repaired, so no big loss.
I left a little extra meat for mistakes on wheelbase and bed length.
It took portions of three rainy weekends for me to cut through frame with cordless recip saw.

Hi, Jasond!
Iíd never seen a worm drive differential before this.
I sure hope mine is OK.
My worm drive differential leaked like a sieve. Iíve been scraping grease and dirt off it for weeks.

Some rust converter and black rustoleum down on the GMC frame. I got tired of looking at all that rust! Still lots of chipping, scraping and sanding to do.
Iím still saving for the K-41 parts I need. The donor ďtractorĒ appears to have it all and not that far away!

Still chipping, scraping, sanding away. Iím going to concentrate on the differential and rear springs. Looks like differential was gray.

We have two 1928 General Motors model T19 trucks which have a Pontiac split head six engines in them. I believe the model T20 used an OHV Buick engine.
