    For a good military collector forum try G503 , they have a section on 6x6 trucks . (I have a GMC CCKW ) like your truck ,look like been in the weeds for awhile. Not much interest in old military truck here , they would love that truck on the G503 !
  4. Yes ,was looking to add other power units , but have to stop collecting some where! What intrigued me was the cast legs,not some home made getup.
  5. I have a P300 power unit , basically a 22/36 with out the tractor part

    Tractor tires are always a trade off ,narrow tire a can sink in and get a “bite”,but sink in to far and you wind up stuck , wide tires can float and carry more weight, but if not enough weight will just spin on top! A combine wants to float and doesn’t need to pull a implent , tractors on the other hand need “to pull “!

    I all ways wonder when I see the tires on 1004# , what were they thinking ? Looks really cool ,but not practical,. The tractor was designed and first equipped with 23.1/26 tires , but they were not heavy enough for the application and I believe the early ones were replaced when the transmission update was done . The replacement tires were 26.5/ 25 earth mover style, and at that time metal was trimmed around the fenders to make them fit . The tractor has axles that turn like a Jeep front axle , doesn’t bend in the center like today’s 4wheel tractors and takes a lot of room to turn . To fit the tires on 1004# they had to butcher the fenders and more work to cut in to and reseal the fuel tank and hydraulic tank on both sides in front of the rear wheels , and still restricting the turning radius . Cool look but ???

    The auction time tractor looks nice with a cab on , I have a cab for ours but am missing the door and door like panel on the other side , l assume they were removed to make it more comfortable in the summer heat ( if someone has a set behind the barn let me know) .Removed It makes it easier to haul and better to see-around,. A tractor this large is a challenge to haul around , we have a detach lowboy with outriggers to handle it , even so when loading the tractor driver can’t see the trailer over thr hood or fenders , you need a spotter on the front of the trailer( hopefully tall one) to derect you to stay on the trailer with inches to spare.

    4300

    30 seems a little high , last I had was in low20s . Some of the owners are very private about there collection ( numbers ) and don’t talk to me , I respect that . BUT “ I allways wondered why you would Own a ( or several) tractors of this size ( 30,00lbs , 10ft wide ) and not want it known or shown.

    I believe all 4300 used the heavy cast iron double plunger pump and the injectors are mechanical tripped , some 817 engines in other app used more modern pumps . That list is several years old and some of those tractors have changed hands .
