  1. Latest project.

    Here is the latest progress on my Power Unit cart.
  2. Latest project.

    bedrock1234; sorry I wasn't clear in my first post. I am looking for a hand starting crank. Power unit has no electrics, hence no starter. I want to keep it crank start.
  3. Latest project.

    Built and installed the mounting pads today.
  4. Latest project.

    560Dennis; which unit did you want more pics of?
  5. Latest project.

    mmi; yes, same as H and W4.
  6. Latest project.

    65806; yes, four wheel steering is the intent. Going over a linkage plan in my head now and I think it can be done. Tie in link will have to be between the power unit bottom and the cart rails but I think I can do that. Not planning on powering anything at the present time; just take to shows along with my M363 Continental engine pictured here.
  7. Hi guys. New to these forums and thought I would introduce myself through my latest project build. I picked up an IH power unit at an Amish farm auction last Thursday. I need to build a cart to move it around in my shop so I started that project today. Here is the unit. It is complete except for a crank and the plug wires. I am looking for a crank if anyone has a spare to sell. I took off the tank and sheet metal so it wouldn't get damaged when I loaded it on my trailer. I started the cart build with a couple of Simplicity garden tractor axles and some square tubing and angle iron. I still need to add mounting pads for the power unit and a tongue and steering linkage to complete the cart. When I get it done and the unit running I will clean everything up and paint it. For now, I just need an easy way to move the unit around my shop. I am a retired truck mechanic and heavy truck driver and projects like this will fill my "spare" time for now. Hope to be a frequent contributor to these forums....Dave
