They do take time and few less distractions would also help...

Looks Great. if you leave the front spindle sticking out the top and use a side steering lever and rod it will look like some of the very old Farmal's

For now I've been using that big rod to push or pull the tractor and steer it.  Seems like a few people wanted some more pictures, so here they are.  Keep in mind, nothing is final at this point.  All of the welds need to be redone and a bunch of other stuff,but it's the basic idea of how it will look.

The gaps in the front will be welded solid, this is all just a designing to see if it'll work and fit together and function.

Yes, that really is a K341 with a short pan that fits under the hood of a short frame tractor without cutting anything on the tractor.

If anyone is wondering why there are so many holes in that front piece, it's because the angle iron is an old Raider 10 frame.

Nice work on this one Reid! I’ll be following along to see how this one ends.  My Local Circle buddy @Rp.wh would find that narrow front especially interesting.  I like the look of the whole project and the functional purpose for which you are building it...:handgestures-thumbupright:

Very cool what you're working on and I like the overall concept.

 

I personally liked it better with the shorter wheel-base and the wide front end, but I'm not the one building it.
