That transmission combination would yield 13 forward and 7 reverse gears.

I built a doodlebug one using a 4 speed truck transmition behind the model A transmition installed frontwards . It would do about 40 mph with both sticks in high. It also had a large truck rear end . With both sticks in low it was supper slow. Winched a car out of 70 feet of water on a frozen lake with drum welded to one back wheel.

I would think the transmission would have to be in forward, I would like to see what the front and back of the transmission looks like. It looks like it has mechanical brakes, I would like to see what they did on the outer ends of the rear axle with the wheel off.

Has anything new learned about who manufactured this tractor? Has any progress been made on getting the tractor running or restored?

Front wheels are the 1939 Ford car wheels. The first hydraulics.
