cab mounting pics needed (completed)

Recommended Posts

KSever
I am trying to make this cab fit my AC314 and am down to the front skirt mounting. I am going to make the front skirt out of a walk behind cab that I had left over that already has the clear plastic windows from along time ago which is no problem. The question and pictures I need are how to mount or attach this front area to the running board and side of the tractor hood. If somebody could take some pictures of this area and how it's attached I sure would appreciate it.

Thanks Levi, but are you talking about the material itself or the frame? I have the frame mounted, everything is on. But I have to make the front bottom material since I picked this up cheap it didn't come with the front bottom material to cover the running boards and my feet. By the way it's Kris not Ken

Sorry kris; what I said before was the frame bolts to the side panel and cross bar . as for the canvas there is a kind of pocket on the bottom that goes along the running boards and in frount of the of them with a bar to hold the pocket out in front of the brake. if you have a fax machine I can send you the picts, I have no camera. hope this helps

Thanks Guys for all the info and Thank You Maynard for the 2 manuals they were a big help. Decided to cut up the old vinyl from the old truck seat I had laying in the barn, forgot it was in there and the vinyl is alot heavier. Someday I'll have to order the real thing.

Thanks for all the comments guys, it's been real fun trying to get this tractor back together after tearing it completely apart to rebuild. Now that I know almost everything works next spring I can take it back apart and paint it with automotive paint. Now just one more thing to do before mounting the blower and that's finding ANOTHER electric lift that actually works this time. I've had two lifts and they both stripped out. The first one lost all the bearings and the second one had the retaining nut come off inside and the screw came all the way out and dropped all the bearings.
