    Well done Steve!
  2. Late again... I did have another idea that was even easier to implement. Not a true locker, but more resistance than the limited slip 10 pinion.... fits under the seat pan and uses rubber wheels to engage on the tyre walls transferring rotation from one side to the other. Early Dixon ZTR mowers used this technology for the handbrake! Can be be left in place all the time but will wear the tyre walls eventually.

    Whats the general consensus on the GT14?

    You are correct, my other GT14 has the independent version. Basically there is another tab on the left close to where the lower arm goes that the cylinder connects to.

    rear mount looks like this

    Whats the general consensus on the GT14?

    Love my GT14s great piece of kit and the rear three points have downforce too! One of mine has a modified D series three point, the other is a copy I made
  6. I think the guys have covered good and bad and how to test the trans. There is a thread on one of my GT14's on here, and that has the same BKT tyres, but in 8.50 width.
  7. they are, no better really - I didn't do them they came that way
  8. I'm half tempted - definitely makes it easier to fit the wheels
  9. thanks, yeah - have to have a lathe with projects like these

    Hi from Norway

    welcome to the group, a 1054 is indeed a rare beast in Europe! have fun...
  11. Title says it all, building up another horse - but trying to make it a little special... so bought these bad boys! 27x10.50-15 BKT skid power HD - hoping I can squeeze them onto a set of GT14 wheels. so I set about making an adapter from 5 stud to 4 stud, but the pcd is close and the holes clash- so it's a little tricky. so had the bright idea of making making my own hubs. Cue big taperlock sprocket! i think it was a lot easier than making the adapters and those taperlock bushes are going nowhere!

    I've seen Richards work first hand, you have a one of a kind restoration there. Nice to see Richard too! have fun!
  13. slightly late to the show, but I have two GT-14's here in the UK. One still has the original gas tank with only a small amount of distortion from the exhaust. So I must be very lucky! There is a thread on me splitting the trans somewhere and replacing bearings. As for the wiring it's a pretty simply tractor, and not that hard to run fresh wires from the ignition switch to the battery coil and regulator - it was one of the first jobs I did on mine, still not done the lights yet... The fuel pump died after a year and I've limped on for three years by cranking for ages- just bough a chinese pump for $15 and it has transformed it!
  14. final pics - finished product Proud of what he achieved, so say it arrived as scrap! take a look at the start of the thread to see what I mean!
  15. All of the work got things pretty close to finished. Missing was the original throttle... No way to get one other than make one - again Ewan did a cracking job fabbing one from scratch!
