The title caught my attention. When I was in my teens I helped a rancher for a day who built his own tractors from model A Fords. His favorite joke was referring to the instruction manual when one had problems.

Do you have links? All I see is blank postings. :confused3:

I built one of mine--Almost from scratch. I used the engine, hood, dash, front axle and seat from a Kubota G3200. The rear axle and hydrostatic transmission was from something I can't remember. I extended the hood and made everything else.

This is the frame going together.

I also built the FEL.

Impressive video. When men were men, and tractors were afraid. Or something like that.

That end to end scheme seemed to be quite popular for a while.

The quote, from Bob Hope, goes something like this: "When men were men and women were women and everyone liked it that way".
