I have seen this very fine example a couple of time in the past. When you first look at it you think, OK, he fitted a V8 OHV engine into it. But then keep looking at all the engineering that has gone into making this happen. It has been lengthened and the chassis had to be altered to suit along with the steering arms and radius rods and that is just the start. Fuel tank moved to the back and wheelie bars fitted as it gets too much traction with lug tyres then the purpose made radiator for cooling and so it goes on.

Bars very necessary ,IMHO......years ago ,I went to Blacketts in Dalby to get some IH dozer tracks........he hooked up a Grey Fergie to the dozer to pull it off the tracks,wouldnt move,so he revved it and dropped the clutch .......he jumped off sidewards ,and the tractor did a backflip,and a half spin ,landing on its side...missed him by inches.

Apart from 'wishful thinking' that a grey fergy would drag that off the tracks I bet he hook it up at the end of the 3 point linkage arms and not underneath the diff.

How about a 3208?
I'd rather have tools that I don't need, than not have the tools I do need.

Wouldn't need the wheelie bars on that.

Those modified tractors are about as silly as the V8 Windsor powered motorbike I saw in a museum in New Zealand some years ago.!
I have my shoulder to the wheel,
my nose to the grindstone,
I've put my best foot forward,
I've put my back into it,
I'm gritting my teeth,

Now I find I can't do any work in this position!
