With the new job teaching machine shop soon to be underway, I think it is time to begin a project that I've wanted to do since I read through meadowfield's C4 project. Well, here is what I'll be working on, a C165 4x4. Here are a few pictures to start with and many, many more to come! The main difference between Mark's machine and mine will be the addition of a right angle gear box and utilizing the parking brake on this axle. I hate to swap out the swept axle on this machine but I've always wanted to make this build. On the bright side, I'll probably have the only gear-reduction steering model tractor with four-wheel-drive in existence! If all goes well, I have a second axle I could use on a hydro version of this project! First step after removing the axle from the donor tractor was a bit of machining. The input pulley was splined so I machined it and it's hub down to 1" and milled a 1/4" keyway into it (pic to come soon) to allow for a proper keyed bore pulley to be installed and change up the gear ratio should it ever need to be done.
