Fender Pan / Seat Vibration Cracks

Recommended Posts

superbman101

Out of all the tractors I've gotten over the years only a few haven't had vibration cracks on them. Usually I have to weld them up and grind it smooth. Does everyone else run into this on their restores?

Needs to be wet sanded and clear coat still

I will be fixing the same cracks on my 990314 (1964 Landlord)

It's good to see what the fenders are supposed to look like. Apparently I need to do some straightening there.

...All 4 of my tractors pans were broken and bent, I straighten the pans, cut the rear welds free, jack up the pan and insert a length of lightweight 1" angle iron between the pan and pipes, long enough to bolt to the rubber mounts for bracing....Then I spot weld the angle to the pipe frame....This reinforces the pan so that it will never bend again, and tips the seat a little bit forward for more secure driver comfort.....
