    Default Ballast box help (again?)

    I have been reading some recent posts regarding homemade ballast boxes or rear ballast and I remember the much referred to picture/description of the concrete ballast at the website www/his.com/~msimpson/tractor/hacker/trweight.htm - I wanted to refer back to that picture and description (very good, as I can remember), but I guess the website is no longer there. Did anyone here copy any instructions/dimensions or pictures from that now-extinct website? Maybe someone has diagrams or pictures of their own "ingenious" ideas? Thanks once again......
