Ed I sure hope you are bring it to The Show. You could charge for rides and make some money on your creation.

I plan to have it there Jim. Rides are free, but, without mentioning names, I am afraid several of our "full sized" members may not fit between the fenders.

No Jim, just the case top.

I think that a short racing style windshield would be a nice touch.

Got all the major parts pretty much in position.    Got the front axle and steering figured out.  Still need to get an engine and build a clutch.

How much drop does a frame flip give ya?

Flipping the frame lowers it about 6",  but I also cut out the center of the flipped frame and added another frame below the two ends.  This lowered the engine about 9" total.

The height of the engine dictated the height of the hood, hood stand, and floor boards.   The spark plug actually protrudes thru the hood into the air vent.

Awesome build Ed. I only regret not finding this thread until tonight. I never would have thought of flipping the frame to lower a tractor. That thing is too cool, and looks like a blast to drive too.
