seat pan

Hy members, the pan on my 917 doesn't seem to fit like I think it should. It seems to far forward and the brackets don't seem to be bent. There is no way a tire chain would ever clear the rear part of pan. Standard 23x10.50x12 tires. Any ideas? Thanks! dewayne

Larry, Someone could have put a hitch from one of the older tractors on that one. The hitch on my 61 Wards is straight. The hitches on my 716H, 713S, and 7116H are all curved toward the rear. The seat pan on the older tractors also sat down between the tires, while the newer pans sit over top, there is probably a height difference also. I have 26x12x12 tires on one of mine. They clear the fenders, but couldn't use chains. 23x10.5x12 tires are no problem with chains on any of my three late model RBTs.

Sounds like Rod is onto it here. When I drug my B-112 outta the willow bushes and tried putting together i found the same problem. Didn't have all the info of this site back then to know for sure, but I welded ears on top of the uprights to get the seat pan on.

dewayne, I totally forgot that when I first acquired my 716H, it also had broken welds and the fenders were bent in that area. I also straightened that area and beefed it up with new welds and some added bracing.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
