I saw one somewhere before. I will have to do a little searching.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

I have seen a few posted before and of course in some of the books you can see these road graders from different manufacturers. Gallion is one that comes to mind.

I have seen the Gallion conversion at RPRU, but never seen a Trojan conversion in person.

There was a Gallion conversion on an M Farmall off to the side of rural lane when I first moved to Missouri. Few years later I went back to see if I could buy it. It was gone.

Also saw a Gallion on an Allis Chalmers years ago in a grove in NW Iowa.
I have an excuse. CRS.

There was one of the conversions for sale not to far from me several years ago, and I was getting tired of caring for2 miles of gravel road with my cub. After doing some inquires about them I decided that the maintenance on one was more than I was willing to take on, plus I was told more than once that it took a minimum of an acre to turn them around.

This thread is worth saving so it has been moved here. Anymore pics of different equipment that used say IH Letter or Number series tractors would be nice I would think... Here are the onces from Craigslist. I have saved them so when/if it disappears I will upload em to the server.
