Super C, need wide front end info

Postby Uncle Wayne » Fri Sep 09, 2005 1:07 am

Hi,

My dad has a Super C with a tricycle front end and wants to change it out to a wide front end. I'm sure this topic has been covered before but I'm new to this forum and don't know how to find it. I'd appreciate any links to info about the changeover. We have seen the Progressive Farmer article on a Super C restoration but need much more than that to know what to buy or do to make this happen. Any advice or info will be appreciated. Thanks.

Wayne

Best,

It's a pretty straightforward conversion... Jack up the tractor, unbolt the old front end, bolt the new one on. If you're able to differentiate between a wrench and a rutabega

The hardest part will be finding one in decent condition for a reasonable price.

Go to steelwheelranch.com - get phone # and ask for Mike. He'll probably have it and at the most reasonable price you'll find.

Thanks for the advice. I called Steel Wheel ranch and they don't have one. In fact he said a wide front end would be hard to come by, which I've found to be true.

I've gotta say that I've NEVER seen a factory wide front for a "C" series tractor? :shock: I would think that they'd be RARE and hard to find too :wink:

Country,

Here's one that may be kinda rare... but maybe the owner would be willing to part it out?

I'll add my stupid question, will the wide front from an A work on a C? It seems the pivot point is centally mounted on both.
Freedom is for those that claim it.

No, not even close.
