I have a 72 john deere 112 and im looking to convert it to the round fender style. Has any one done this? Will the fenders and floor boards bolt on? Also what else do i need to do to convert it to the round fender style? Any input is appreciated!
If you are willing to cut and weld and adapt pieces that weren't originally meant to go together, you can have whatever you want.
I really like Don Staples' tractor in the picture. It shows what can be done if you are willing to do some cutting and welding, and a some straightening, filling, and painting. Well, maybe a lot of cutting, welding, straightening, filling, and painting. Probably a lot of buffing too.
Don, terrific Job. it looks so much better with the SF hood and grill on it than the RF. the RF tractors were good looking but when it came time to design the grill on them it just looks like they stopped and said throw a grill on it of from a big tractor. they look to long and out of place.
I did put some 26 x 12 x 12 tires on. I'm not sure how the pan is supposed to attach at the rear, metal to metal or some rubber bushing. But mine was rubber, but it wasn't the same side to side, so it's been messed with. I used a sway bar rubber bushing on each side, which raised it slightly and here is how it's sitting.
