What make is the large tractor in the background of Photo 4? Could it be a N&S?

Very nice job! I have a question, on the before pic you can see the front wheels had the hard rubber on them. Are the after pics the same wheels? Question being, do all the hard rubber wheels have that guide ring under the rubber?
And if so, does that mean that some of the tractors you see around with that type of guide ring, originally had hard rubber wheels on them?

I also wonder,
Does anyone remake that type of hard rubber for the wheels?

Great job, the finished tractor looks awesome. Really like that overhead hoist, looks like it makes engine removal and installation a lot easier.

The front wheels had a old truck solid rubber tire welded to the spokes and the rear wheels were cut-offs.

Very nice job! As I am unfamiliar with this model of tractor I would be interested in the bore and stroke dimensions of the motor. Is it a K-G motor or was it built by an independent engine supplier of that era? Also noted the electric starter which will be handy to have on an engine this size.

I see a Twin City Big Twin Cam in the background of Picture 1 in Post 1. Would be interested to see a picture of that tractor and serial number sometime if you're so inclined.

The engine is a LeRoi, same as found in a 25-50 baker. 5 1/2 bore x 7 inch stroke
