I had a bit of spare time so I'm starting a new build. Its gonna be a mishmash of parts from different years,models and makes. With some home brew added in. The first to hit the chopping block was an old Craftsman.

Just stacking up some left over pieces. The frame is a 312 and a big ole 5 lug hydro rear  and I believe the seat is Fordson.  Let's see what happens, shall we.

I would love to have a tractor with steel wheels someday. It cant be this one though. I'm building it for the wife. That's why it's going to be a hydro. It's also going to be electric start

Steering is sorta figured out. Engine mounts are done. Next is to get the rear axle connected to the frame

Yes I am. I have a bunch of them kicking around. Plus the wife wanted a hydro, and I had 2 5ug hydros here already

The design of this simple little piece has been the sticky wicket of my build. Now I may be able to  make some progress.
