Might as well show this one too since this one is a worker. Not as an entry but just to put it in a thread that's about customs.

Here's my homebuilt backhoe which has done plenty of work for a little machine. Spent 2 summers of spare time outside on the ground cutting, drilling and welding to get it together. By the end, I was sick of cutting, drilling and welding! Spent the winters researching the net for hydraulic info as this was my first time ever attempting to use them and building something this big from scratch.  Built using the plans from PF Engineering.com

This is my little C-85.  I bought it mainly for the plow due to the snow we get here in the winter.  She started out a little rough.  Not nearly as much effort in restoring her as some of the works of art I see on here, but then I wanted a worker.

I replaced the fender pan with a metal one from a later unknown model that I bought off ebay.  The plastic fenders were so rotten they would crumble at the slightest touch.  I used the original plastic mounting base as a spacer for the metal one and only needed to cut out for the fuel tank.  Worked perfect.

I wouldn't really call the Craftsman plow a modification, but more of an adaptation.  It works great though.

When it's all together the Little Horse looks pretty serious.

36_15_271_zps52c3ab1c.gif  Yeah, that chair has almost run it's course.  It is starting to disintigrate.  I already took the arm rests off, couldn't get my fat butt in the chair with 'em on!  I have another seat that resembles the two-piece WH seats to go on.  I just need to cover it with vinyl first so I can just wipe it off and go when it is covered with snow.

Thanks to everyone who voted!

 

This could be one that I do again since there may be enough spare parts around. It did get lots of attention at the shows and apparently people like the style of it. It's just getting tougher and tougher to come up with new ideas for something that hasn't already been done.

      What direction does the front PTO Pulley turn on a wheel horse D180 with a Kohler K482 as you face the front of the tractor?
       
      I want to get a hydraulic pump for a Johnson 10 loader I will be mounting to tractor and want to make sure I get a pump that rotates the correct direction.

      I was looking for Ross steering parts and "found" the gardentractorpullingtips.com/steering.htm website.
      I have not ordered anything, only sent an email with questions.
       
      Today I noticed the post in the Red Square Links for "not recommended suppliers".
      I am glad I did not send any money.
       
      I am rebuilding a Ross Steering box on a Wheel Horse D180.
       
      The Ross Steering box has the code below stamped on the column.
      SCA 10200
       
      Where can I get these items?
      -          Complete Lower Steering Box Bearing and Cup/Race Kit - Full Set. Includes two plastic bearing cages/ball spacers.
      -          9/16" Diameter Cam Follower (Steering Pin). 
      -          Flanged Sealed Ball Bearing to replace the insert at the top of the column.  Looks like it's a little bigger than 1 3/8" OD with a 3/4" ID 
      -          “Easy Steer" Upgrade Kit. For models with 3/4" diameter pitman arm stud.
       
      I have seen some of these parts on the auction site but was hoping for someplace I could order everything from.
       
      Thank You.

      On my D200, when I turn the steering wheel all the way to the left, it has a tight turn radius, but when I turn it all the way to the right, the turn radius is significantly wider.
       
      The tie rods appear to be adjusted evenly.
       
      Anyone have a similar problem and what was done to fix it?  The steering does have quite a bit of play, at least 1/4 to 1/2 turn of the wheel.
