"Pull" I'll just bet! I may have counted wrong, but it looks like there are 9 teeth between every spoke and 9 spokes giving 81 teeth inside the big wheels and it looks like 6 on the T axle gear. If that's all correct, that gives about 2 1/4 MPH in high gear. Hang some weight over that rear axle and where's the nearest stump?

thanks guys
I showed the pictures to my father,
that seems to be it, from what we are told,
we just purchased the kit , it was never installed and sitting in storage,
now we have to wait until I have time to drive 5 hrs each direction , to pick it up..
and then I will post the pictures

I bet it would climb a telephone pole if it could get traction.

Here is one that I saw in action a few years back before Don sold off some of his collection. The only thing that will stop it from pulling is spring hop causing the small cog to jump!

When you bought a tractor or converted your T to a tractor,
chances are you still had walk-behind or ride-on horse drawn
implements (and no hired man).
Sooo . . .

Yup, counted wrong. The blurb Mr. Saylor posted says the gear ratio is eleven to one. That gives a speedy total of 2 3/4 MPH vice 2 1/4.

What a great mod! LOVE the remote control!

What all could the T be used for, anyway? Plowing, shucking corn, sawing, bailing, boiling water (OOPS! Delete that last non-intended result.)... And, don't forget, transportation!

Art, I recall my aunts pulling a horse-drawn dump rake behind a Model C Allis when I was a kiddo. One drove the tractor and the other rode the rake. A neighbor told of feeling tired while doing her housework one day, so she sat down to rest. She looked out the window and saw my aunt Ernestine driving the tractor and Grandma, then about eighty, riding the seed drill. "After I saw that," she said, "I got up and went back to work."

They either bobbed the fenders or just pushed them out of the way.

Henry's car has been used for almost everything - including boiling water and cooking - I bet someone even used it to propel a boat?
