Glad you cleared that up, because I bought a cat "0" for about $20 from Rural King!

 

Very nice fab job on your 3 pt lift...Nice GT-14 also!

No plans for check chains, don't think they are needed as I made collars for the uplift bars which prevent the horizontal bars or draw bar from hitting the wheels etc.

Yes sir I was also surprised that a class (1) hitch fits like a glove with a little bit of welding and TLC.

Okay so we finally got some decent weather and I had a chance to put all the pieces together to complete my GT 14 3 PT hitch and platform (good for 400 lbs plus). Hope you like it tried it out today with my wife on the platform and it work flawlessly.....

Nice work on the hitch.  Nice machine also, I wouldn't mind having one to keep the 16 Auto company in the shed.

Yes what I like about the GT 14 is the weight and might of a relatively small package, the front cast iron grille is very heavy that plus the heavy duty frame and the cast iron Kohler 14 HP engine makes something like the back pallet I built work. My guess so far is that the pallet will support and lift about five hundred pounds before it starts lifting the front end of the tractor.... this is the max I want to support on my home made back loader.... so I will use this a my fall safe to protect the tractor hydraulics, the back loader and my overall safety!

At the risk of sounding too critical of an otherwise pretty cool project but , would it not have been beneficial to bend the ends of the top link arms in at the top 10 degrees for smother movement & less wear on the pins ?

Technically yes practically no, I and the next owner will be in our grave before any significant wear occurs on these heavy duty arms, plus it keeps just enough tension so that the horizontal arms center and do not hit the tires (so I don't have to add any additional chains.  Thanks for the comment

      I decided I needed a way to carry some things around when working with the tractor. This is not a "Wheel Horse" attachment, but will work with any Category 1 three point. The idea came from a Kubota guy that did some great videos on how to make it.
       
      I decided to go with a Rural King "King Kutter" frame for three reasons: 1) it was red and I didn't have to repaint it to match, 2) I liked the RK mounting points better than TSC because they were mounted away from the frame farther and accept quick hitch if you use that, and 3) out of three TSC location around me, NONE had thier County Line carrier in stock. RK had three for the same price of $159.
       
      I added a hitch receiver to move utility trailers. I beefed it like the video by adding a piece of steel and routing out the underside so it sat flush. For chainsaw carrier I routed out a 2x6 enough to fit the saw bar.
       
      My rear tires are water filled, but this adds a little more weight as well. I plan to get a big HF (1K) furniture dolly to put under it when not attached because it's too heavy to slide around. I can get that for $12. A handmade one cost more than that in just wheels.
       
      Here are some pictures of the build if you could use something like this.

      I am currently doing a ring, piston, hone rebuild on a K 321 off a Ford LGT 145 Tractor  on this machine they actually welded the rails to the bottom pan (see pics). My intention here is to put this puppy in a red machine (312-8 or GT14). I definitely have the small pan with the expanded bottom for the long dipper.
      Here's my questions:
      > Can I carefully remove the rails from the pan, cutoff the old front axle mounting bracket(s) and then drill holes in  the flanges to mount  to the Wheel Horse rails.
      > Since the engine is side mounted will the expanded bottom fit between the standard Wheel Horse rails?
      > If not possible to make this old pan work what flat pan would work and do I need to get the expanded bottom one (big dipper}
      > any recommendations here would be appreciated don't want to go down to many blind holes here...….
       
      Thanks much!

      Saw a gt14 for a really good price on Craigslist yesterday went and looked at it last evening, ended up buying it . It’s a 68 or 69 gt14 but I’m not exactly sure which. It’s in decent condition and seems to be complete. It has a really nice complete three point hitch and a really nice three point tiller. I didn’t think the seat and muffler were original but I looked at a manual and it turns out they are. I’m gonna try to get it running for the big show but if I don’t I will still take it. The best part is I bought it from a super nice guy that knows a lot about wheel horses. Some of you might know him, his name is Less, sorry didn’t catch his last name. He has been going to the wheel horse show since the beginning and personally knew Cecil and Betty Pond. He used to have 74 tractors but he narrowed it down to his favorite three. Overall it was a really good day. I got to meet a really nice guy, get another tractor and hear some good stories. Here are a few pictures of the gt14 and tiller. I am gonna start working on it this Sunday. 
      Tractor or serial number

      Sooo about three months ago I had a friend of a friend pass to me the most needy Wheel Horse GT14 Tractor I had ever seen, it was completely taken apart every single part had rust and two coats on oil paint one blue and one yellow. parts were missing and of course there was no labeling of parts or assembly there-of. All wiring, gauges, rectifiers were removed and non existent….. still the machine was calling to me to try and do the almost impossible...… My thanks to Aldon for parts and support and Kyle for Technical help and shoulder to cry on. ….  The only saving grace of the entire project is that the engine and tranny were indeed still good...… in fact the only remaining issue I have on the machine is that I cannot free-up the relief valve so that I can move the machine w/o power..... I think this might be stuck forever … but not the end of the world.
