    got it, thanks! I figured I would have to do something with a pivot to make it work.

    that's is going to be a very cool looking tractor! What did you use for your tricycle?
    I've seen enough to know I've seen to much

    Thanks, Mine was bought on eBay because I was not sure what to use. As it turns out the main housing was a rear axle from a 110 like I'm putting in the tractor. They just put a bolt in the housing, welded a washer at the top so the bearing wouldn't fall out & a bent shaft at the bottom for the tires. The part that looks bad to me, was they cut the casting with a grinder, it's not straight nor did they clean up the corner witha die grinder. That will all be hidden on mine due to being tucked up in the tractor. I've been thinking of adding some wheel scrapers on the front. My '36 A has them & I think that will be a nice touch.

    I finally got the tires mounted, they were taller than the others so I had to raise the rearend 1". Now I'm dreaming up a way to get the mower hooked up. I curved some flat bar for the front lift & will need to run it tight to the inside of the frame & pin it above the axle. Or at least that's the plan. No room for the wheel scrapers,image.jpgimage.jpg while image.jpgthe deck is on at least.

    image.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgimage.jpgI got the mower to lift today! I cut down the original quik pins & put them on the inside, modified them a bit. I cut a slot in the end of the pin, so I can use a screwdriver to turn & lock the pins. Found the front angle iron is right out of square for some reason. The quik pins will make the steering linkage a little harder to hook up later also.

    Nice work Kevin! That's the best part of a Tricycle conversion! When it's still functional!

    Thank you. Originally all I wanted was a 70 trike & 60 hi crop for going to tractor shows for my wife & I to get around, but I enjoy cutting the lawn with the old round fenders. I have a slip joint from a steering column that I might use to drive the deck, or I've been kicking around the idea of hydraulic driven. Then 3 point might have to be put on. Lol.

    I think this is the first Tricycle conversion I've seen that can run a mower deck
