Thanks . I've been picking your brains on here for a while but decided to join and share. First tractor was a gift to my daughter from father in law and since a herd has followed us home. Mostly my past has been amc sand draggin in Lisbon Ohio. This dual tractor I just got from older friend. He's sadly unable to continue due to health.  I'm hoping to grab all o can from his collection to help preserve . And my 11 year old girl and her girl cousins love this hobby. 

I'm just gettin started on this project and definatly want to go to big show. The engines are Colt mfg. 2a016 111 2 cyl multi fuel 16 ci.

Lying to your better half always works for me. Do a small project around the house where you have to make a couple of purchases. One purchase of parts etc for the horse will not be noticed.

Yep yah got it right at sand drags. It was lots of fun unemployment checks helped build the jeep. Tried factory style 327 375hp build and it worked well. Did not do well in mud drags. Never do that again ! Just got tired of race jeep sittin only to be toyed 5 times a years  so killed it in mud like fool. Got some good pics to upload soon though. Tried rebuilding lighter but passing parent put hurt on project. Jeeps been on death row for two years now. Thanks guys glad to have yah

I'm trying to interest my brother in investing in the collection of my older friend. But it is hard to explain the value of junk to a business man. Hard as new person to identify all the different models. And for some reason I'm unable to upload more pics. Have I reached a max number allowed or is it the pic size and how to correct ? Grr. Thanks to you men that truly give of yourself so us newbies can enjoy together. Switched four gear in place of sun strand hydro box and by chance had all the right peices to make it work. Sun strand hydro lacked only full power in reverse was why I pulled. But noticed cam plate and pin wear seemed to be the major malfunction . Either way I'm thinking about using it on the dual engine build for simple controllability of course will design my own controls.

      About 30+ years ago my dad who is now 80 was working in a sheet metal (HACV) factory and decided to make himself a rear clevis hitch mounted scraper blade for his CC 1200 to repair our 1/4 mile long driveway after winter and rain storms, so with an old pair of cast iron plow shares he got his radius to break a piece of 12? gauge steel for the moldboard approx 6" tall by 48" long with 1/4"x2.5" flat bar for the wear edge (that was later upgraded to a car leaf spring), he also bent a piece of 3/16" into a "U" for the swivel mount to the moldboard then a 3/8"x2.25" flat bar for the lift/pull/swivel arm, finished off with the clevis to attach which he also drilled to be able to tilt for pulling side ditches, long story shortened, it worked very well for many years with my body being extra weight when necessary, after I moved out to find my own way he added brackets for extra weight, fast forward to the past few winters it sat outside the shed where he accidentally ran it over in the snow with my Kioti, so the last couple months I've been in the process of fixing it for him/myself and here's a few shots of the broken to fab to final (hopefully a bit better and easier to angle plus turn for pushing version) waiting on paint stages that I just finished up today... Father's Day, Jeff.

      Any one seen anything like this before???
      Its a dual port I believe, which would make it 1600cc?
      Quirky for sure. Never heard it run.
      Have to wonder if there's enough air movement to keep the thing cooled.
      No shroud or fan........doubtful, IMO.

      Has anyone ever made their own hydraulic 3 point/front loader systems? I would really like to put one on my 414-8 but don't want to jump into anything without any knowledge. By the way I am new here and just now learning how the site works. Thanks and God Bless.

      Who has a customized/built 'worker' dump cart to show off?
      I'm hoping if I see some others, I will be get some ideas for my own.
       
      I have an old steel dump cart.... it was "custom" made (Frankenstein-ish from many parts)  approx 40+ yrs ago, and my dad used it with his old gravely.. later with our 310-8, then later with my ZTR.... May have started life as a Gravely item, IDK.
      It is just a square cart, approx 3' x 5', x 1' deep... with 1 1/2" square pocket stake pockets in the corners, and a top hinged removable tailgate, 4.80x8 tires.
      I'll try to add a pic later.
       
      I want to restore it to some degree, still gonna be a worker.  Want to clean up the rust, paint it WH red, new tires.
      I will create a removable front and sides that can insert into the stake pockets to increase the capacity for things like leaves and firewood.
      I'm thinking of PT decking for the side rails.
       
      Maybe a spray-in liner material for the inside?
      My goal is workable, durable, and decent looking!
