Model 1-7441 is a 1969 model tractor. Click on the pictures

The tiller 7-1232 was sold 1970-1973 and yours is a 1970 model but can not make out the first digit of the serial number. Looks like it has a scratch through it. See x39958. The 1971 model would have been stamped 7-1232-6, 1972 stamped 7-1232-7, and 1973 stamped 7-1232-8.

:text-coolphotos:               Robbie, that GT-14 is one tough tractor. I have had mine for several years and love it.      :woohoo:

great find on that, more steel on that than a new car  !   bringing that unit back will be great, my own opinion retaining and enhancing that patina would be the way to go on that. the character of that cannot be duplicated . wd 40 on a rag will enhance and  feed that paint , letting you save that patina. don,t know what your plans are , but that tractor would put  just about anything away , save it , pete

I agree. I plan on getting it mechanically sound and using it as it is.

Do you guys know where I can get rear tires for the GT14. I would like to get ag tires but if I can’t I will settle for turfs.

Check with @grnlark he has a set on the Big Show listing thread,  he has them listed to fit a 953 or a 1054 i’m Almost positive they will fit the 14’s as well

If he still has them you should jump on those tires if you want to keep it stock. On my restomod I went with new turfs and they are very pricy.

That thing looks awesome, i would love to get wheels and tires like that but I could probably never afford them. Cant wait to see that when you finish it.

Never say never!  Aim high and work hard, I bet @Aldon‘s got some sweat equity into those wheels 👍

Great find! You'll love it I'm sure. Very stout machine.

 

I'd love to have a 3-point setup for mine... but they never show up for sale around me!

 

Shouldn't take much to get her running!

      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!

      looking for info/help re securing a front wheel bearing/race for  GT14/ 1971;  any info would be much appreciated..

      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.

      Hi. I'm Chaplain Manny. I was wondering if you supply the decals for the gt14, the kohler k321 engine? 
      If you do, could you give me a quote, and tell me how long is the turn around?
      Thank you.
