Been sitting on this one for about 4 years now buying parts and getting ready it ran real nice when I bought it the can  blew off the muffler found it that way a month later covered it up but it still stuck soaked it for a year now to pull it apart and get it going. Got some new 15.5 firestones and some spin out wheels and centers to go on it and some new tin work for it I’ll spit it snd put a TA in it I couldn’t get this one to do anything she when it was running

Looks like rings on the power adjust wheels for mounting band duals ?

Yes I think they might have been I bought these wheels fenders and a set of weights off a guy that had a 450 he was working on for a puller trying to lighten it up some. They were about a half hour away for 250$ I couldn’t pass em up

I passed up a set a few years ago that were in great shape I almost think they ended up going to the scrapper along with a 450 rear ended and two regulars  I couldn’t buy it all but did end up with a  SM with a model 2000 loader a bunch of IH brochures and a clutch kit for an m a couple IH cylinders a fast hitch carryall and a new Swartz wide front for under 1000$ so I was happy with what I got but sad I couldn’t save it all. I was able to put some friends on it that bought some stuff before it went to China

SPEAKING from experience,  If your plans are to attach that 450 to that 411 plow, you will need some additional weight on the front of the 450.  Spent many hours on a 450 NFE with about 450-475 extra pounds on front plowing with a 4F-43 4-14 with the rear on-land gage wheel.  Your WFE is heavier than our NFE was, but an extra 150-200# might be nice.

     That will be a nice tractor when your done.

I have a 3-16 311 I bought at red power in Bloomsburg a few years ago for 75$ I need to put new wear parts on it I have been gathering up some over the years I will try the 411 but plan on running the 311 or a 4-14 no16 trailer plow I picked up a few years ago. The hard part since purchasing this tractor 4 years ago I have gotten 4 others since that this one needs so much work. The hard part is they all need saving
