It ought to be reliable with the Willys components.

With all that why haven't we heard of it? Confuses me.

Good question. Wasnt there a lot of companies trying to offer a tractor about equal to the Cub? Maybe it wasnt the right size for suburban people that made garden tractors so desirable?

As Dennis said in the first post, they were going over seas.

The Empire tractor was originally made for exportation in the Lend-Lease Program after World War II.

I overlooked that part:think:. It's still a neat tractor though.

That is a cool looking tractor. Wonder if it being intended for use overseas, the name was a bit of sarcsasm on someone’s part

This is the kind of stuff I'd like to see. The diversity of machinery made from surplus parts '

 More than likely. We've had to put up with quite a bit of that from certain quarters. :rolleyes:

 

If any came into Britain I can't say. I haven't heard or seen of them myself. I'd like to find one though.

I thought about that myself actually haha!

It would have to be a trailer queen though.... mow the grass with it it’ll look like you spilled bleach on a JD 😂😂

 

off topic but, is that the desktop view of the site? I’ve not seen that view before, but I’m only ever on my phone

Good point, I guess it would make a mean snow machine though...

 

It’s on an iPad.  I use the PC too and it looks the same.  If I turn my screen vertical the whole view changes (I assume like a phone?)

      A little fab project I picked up this week, this belongs to a Yukon Gear and Axle sales rep in the area, doing some prep for his next Colorado trip in a couple weeks...  Should fund another Wheel Horse project!

      Well fellas I decided to buy a jeep wrangler as a new toy. I have always been into the off-roading scene since I was a kid. I always loved trucks, jeeps, atvs. Recently a friend of mine traded his mustang for a lifted wrangler and its a blast to go off-roading in or wheeling as they like to put it.
       
      I couldn't help myself and wanted to join in so I bought a 1993 with 153,000 miles on it with a ton of add ons for a great price. It has a 5.5" suspension lift, a 2' body lift and rides on 35" tires. She has 4.56 gears which are awesome for crawling, 4wd low range and 1st gear and you don't even have to touch the gas pedal. It is a 4.0L 6 cylinder engine back by a 5 speed manual trans. The rear drive shaft is a custom cv drive shaft with a slip yoke eliminator. The rear axle is a ford 8.8 limited slip with disc brakes out of a ford explorer. The frame is perfect not a spec of rust and was coated with POR-15.
       
      She does have her fair share of issues but I am working on getting those straightened out! I just had the front drive shaft rebuilt and balanced. I ordered all new extremely heavy duty shocks. I need to fabricate 2 custom rear shock mounts as the "custom" ones that were on it broke off lol. She needs 2 new leaf spring packs in the rear. Some body work. A good cleaning after this weekend. Some fender flares. Etc!
       

       
      If anyone has any good oh crap off-roading or wheeling stories with their jeeps or pictures please share. After this past Sundays experience I could probably top them lol.
       
       
      I hope you enjoy the pics and the video my jeep was the main attraction. (I did not edit the video a friend did, so turn down the volume or the music might scare you)
