Aaand then a gust of wind took out one of the doors. Definetely NOT what I was planning to do this afternoon..

Note: yes the door, what's left of it anyway, is in horrible condition and I would love to replace it. Some hurdles to take before that can happen though.

First official upgrade to the Case International. It needed some front fenders badly. Took the tractor out in the rain a few times, last time together with one of my  nephews and we got plenty of water and mud flung onto our faces.. no bueno.. although my nephew did'nt seem to care :lol:

Gathered up some flat bar stock and started puzzeling. Turns out nothing is flat, square and/or plumb on a front axle like this so there were quite a few tricky angles to get right.

 

My dad rolled a hoop which I used to make part of the main frame with.

Looked at some pictures on the interwebs for inspiration and (imho) improved the design to my liking. Top bolts onto an exsisting bolt which I replaced with an longer one. The bottom wraps around the wheelhub with an exhaust bolt (if that even is a word in English).

Bolted the fenders to the brackets with some carriage bolts and self locking nuts.

Done! Don't know why but I always really like the look of front fenders on 2wd tractors.

Thanks for watching!

      I have for sale a 1984 C-105 with deck and Snowblower. I got this as part of a package. There’s no battery and I haven’t tried to start it. I’m selling it as a project. The deck has one spindle out, but with it, as prior owner claims bearing was replaced. The snowblower has the flag and looks to be in very good condition. All but 1 tire holds air. The mower is complete. Includes mule drive. The extra hood (c-175) you see in the picture can go with the tractor for an additional $50. Thx for looking.

      Hello everyone!
      I recently inherited my grandpa's 
      Wheel Horse 753. I remember it running before his health declined about 15 years ago. My intentions are just to get it running and do a mild restoration, it'll stay in the family.
       
      Without further ado, here it is!
      Having a hard time with pictures due to no phone service at my shop. I'll be sure to update soon.

      I find myself checking out the "Other Brands" thread quiet a lot....& feel a little guilty for not being a Wheel Horse purist.
      The three Horse's I have do me fine, sure I'd like to have a couple more round hoods when & if I ever get my pull barn up....maybe a Speedex, one of them green round fenders, Powerking, etc, etc...
      So to get this thread on track & end my rambling, I like the odd ones, hand built or obscure GT's that never caught on (see my Homesteader thread).
       
      Whatchamacalit, I'm not sure what else to call this or what thread this should go under.
      But Odd & Obscure fit it pretty good.
      I believe it was built as a parade car?
      It's 11' long & 55" wide, powered by an 8HP B&S, with a belt driven 3 speed car trans &  a car type rear axle.
      No suspension & with all the weight towards the front, if the front end dips low enough to lift a back tire....there it sits.
       
      What I have....a 22HP Predator engine, a HD 8 speed from a C series, a pair of Samurai axles & driveshaft's.
      Maybe some 26" ag's or bigger, have to do some math, see what kid of gearing I would have in the axles & at the drive from the engine to the trans.
      For suspension I'm thinking maybe a transverse leaf at the front & golf cart leaf springs in back.
      Anyone seeing where I'm going with this?
      Isn't it fun to dream & ramble.....
