Jim do you have any problems with the internal brakes stopping Brutus? looks like you have alot of rolling mass to stop, This is another area I'm undecided on, since I'll be running standard cub rear rim's and tires I wasn't sure if the internal brake would stop it, I was looking at adapting the regular cub brake bands.

Been to DSCF for the past 3 days. But no I do not have any problems with the brakes. It has an internal wet brake and it works good. It will lock the tires up if I need it to. I can stop in going up or down loading ramps. Brutus weighs about 1020 lbs. It is a little heavy. You shouldn't have any problems with the internal wet brake with the F-Cub tires on it. As long as the brake parts are good. Good luck with your project. Remember post pictures.

I know it has been a few years since the high crop projects. I am wondering if there is any new info on these and if there are any new pictures.
One of the things that interested me was all of the different ideas about how to get rid of the front reduction. Some of them would change the direction of the tranny. How did you fix that? Did you turn the carrier over? I am interested also in how well the chain drive has held up in the front housing. Will it hold up to tractor pulling? Also how much weight does the loboy reduction housing add to the tractor?

Jim,
I realize that this post is several years old. I am new to this forum and just saw your posts/pictures of your chain drive system that you built for your hi crop. I have a few questions. Did you finish that project and are there pictures of it. Also do you have a detail pictures on how you put the sprocket on the input pinion. Also the lower sprocket. Did you machine the lower gear and weld the sprocket to it?
Also it appears that there is a spacer on the right housing. I don't understand that part. Won't the housing bolt directly to the case?
Thank you.
David

How about making one with cultivation using the axle tube extension and a 154 front axle off set? A mini cub?

The 154 creeper and 154 tranny would be neat.

The last time JimT has visited this forum was Dec. 4, 2014. So there's a fairly good chance he's not going to see your post.

If you ever wonder about when someone has last visited (logged on) to the forum, find their post, click on their name under the avatar/picture and it takes you to their home page. The info is listed there (lower right portion of screen). Can also access them via "Members" at upper right of screen, but you'd have to remember their handle.

Just seen this. I didn't finish the Hi-Crop project, went another direction (Brutus). I did finish the tranny project and put it in Brutus. The input pinion shaft was turned down and a key way machined into it to allow for a gear to be slid on it and thighten down with a set screw. The lower gear had the center cut out of it and welded into a sprocket. The spacer is out of a numbered series cub lowboy. This spacer is needed to be able to mount the final drive on the tranny. Without it the axle shaft would hit the spider gear shaft before it would mount flat to the tranny.

This picture will help see how the sprockets were done. I ended up using a small sprocket that the one in the photo.

Here is what the project ended up being. http://www.farmallcub.com/phpBB2/viewto ... =2&t=43028

I didn't have to flip the carrier over. Even though the finals would reverse the direction of the tractor changing to sprocket in the tranny corrected this condition. Putting the sprockets in changed the direction of the tranny for the final output.

This is one of HamiltonBobs photos of the spacer used on the tranny to install the final drive.

Now looking at the rear picture I'm thinking a little cub cadet forklift??

JimT you need another build? Right?

I still am recovering from prostate cancer. It put the brakes on my projects for sure no energy yet.
