  1. I've loved square body Chevys since I was a kid. My first vehicle was a '76 long bed 2wd with a 250 cubic inch in-line 6 and a 3-on-the-tree manual transmission. I could have gotten into a lot more trouble with a 350 and 4x4.... If I were to find one with the 4 speed manual and 4x4, is there a later 5 speed manual that would swap in easily? Or a later transmission and transfer case that would be an easy swap? How hard is it to swap from an automatic to a manual if I find a deal I can't refuse?
  2. Kinda favors Mike MItchell's Fendt with triples - a lot of rubber! I like it.
  3. I don't think we got too far into our steering bolster. You should be able to remove the shaft and worm by removing the screw in plug on the front of the bolster and screwing the shaft out towards the front. You will have to remove the universal joint on the input side of the steering box. Hope this helps.

  5. By the way - I understood this when I was taking engineering classes. I graduated in 1995, and haven't used much of my engineering math since then.
  6. I get 3,327 lbs of force needed using this equation: In your case, the gravity force is 16,000 lbs, and you multiply than by the sin of 12 degrees, which is 0.2079 Since 'free rolling' isn't truly zero fiction, you'll need a little more. This formula is assuming no extra work to overcome friction. That being said, I agree wit VT, buy the biggest winch you can afford.
  7. AGREED! It was a great trip, except for the people.
  8. I did years ago - if you go to google and type in WD Buddy Seat, my tractor appears. It turns up in discussion on FB groups and unofficial allis from time to time. It's kinda funny to browse along minding your own business and find your tractor.
  9. @Wes806 - here ya go - I used a second WD seat support, and added a piece to the lower shock mount to use the brake centering bolt. It would be easier with the later WD45 seat supports that the whole thing just mounts off of the brake cover.
  10. I have 4 pins on the shelf in case anyone is in need - complete set of WD brake shoes too for that matter. We have not worked the D15, but so far as long as we are careful to make sure it is fully in gear, it stays there. I've read that the detent notches in the shifter rail can be welded and re-machined to gain slightly better engagement to cure mild cases of gear jumping.
  11. Not great pic of the guard around the thumb button for vtfireman85
  12. The button has a guard around the front and right side - I'll have to take a pic tomorrow
  13. The WD was complete, motor locked up from sitting with the exhaust open for years. I wanted the wheels and tires, and Brody's buddy wanted the factory 3 pt adapter and belt pulley for his WD. I hate to kill a tractor, but financially it was a no brainer compared to two new rims and four new tires. Brody & TJ have formed a local antique tractor club, and are hosting their first independent show in Boiling Springs NC this weekend. I'm proud of both of them!
