Patrick Someone spent a lot of time putting a Herc. Power Unit into an HG chassis. It is one of the more complicated installs I've seen. The engine appears to be mounted higher than the imput into the Transmission. How did they make the connection between the two???? It is amazing what people have done to keep and old tractor going. It is a model UX4 Hercules Power Unit and dates much later than the tractor it is mounted in. Enjoy Ed B

Does anyone know where some rubber track pads can be had for this? Has anyone had luck with making their own, and from what?
