I purchased a Custom Products of Litchfield Cab for my 184 Lowboy and am looking for information and photos for mounting it to the tractor. I contacted the manufacturer but they didn't have any information as it is too old. :( I can fab up bracketry but it would be nice to see how it was done originally. Thanks in advance.

first of all welcome to the fourm
you can fab anything you want to make it work
on my cab I did a cross bar off the inspection cover for the transmission [back]
and a cross bar snuck threw the back end of the engine compartment [front]
it came off of a 1066 IH farm tractor,,,took some cutting and welding to make it fit
but it was worth it because we have 114'' of snow fall and below 0 temps now

Mike

I bump the thread up for you

Mike, Thanks for your reply. It sounds like you do need that cab! We don't receive nearly that volume of snow down here in S.E. MI. but the cold winds can be brutal and a cab will be nice. I like your idea of the cross bar mount up front and probably brace the back from either the frame or the final drive castings as this cab is very heavy having a ROPS rating.

Hi Bingo. Welcome to the forum. Years ago I acquired a Curtis cab universal that had some pieces with it but I had to make a lot too. My friend George had the 185. You can get some ideas from this old link: viewtopic.php?f=31&t=49411 . There's more pics of the finished product if you do a search from that same time period.

My sims cab locates on the upper fender bolts. Then attaches to the lower foot rests.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
