Looks like a Fond Du Lac conversion.
Has the internal bull gear inside the rear wheels.
I have one like it.
An old farmer told me...looks like the bull gear jumped the heifer shaft.
I think that happened to mine!
Sheeesh,.....some guys just hafta' get sex into everything!
I'm not too old!
How about you, Harold?
Missed you at the meeting a week ago.
I've never seen a tractor conversion and was wondering how they got the front suspension up so high? Don
Mine has the front axle narrowed and some pieces of 1/2" plate bolted from the front crossmember to the axle with a pivot for uneven ground.
No spring and it's a little higher than original.
I can post a pic if it would help.
Some turned the front axle up-side-down.
You can see the front axle in this shot.
Narrowing the axle was one method of raising (see my profile pick - that's my '25 Shaw conversion kit - and you'll see what I mean about narrowing/raising). I have'21/'27 doodlebug I am currently working on that has a single-point, pivot front end mount (no leaf springs). The pivot point was made especially tall to increase clearance.
Have emailed you about yours and I know you and your grandkids have plans for her - BUT, should those plans ever change.....
