Not a AC/Simplcity

I wanted to show a hub/wheel/tire upgrade I made. I have lots of different brands of garden tractors, seven AC/Simplicitys, but this is one of my two Bolens tractors. My friend Garoyl from Vinita Oklahoma, came over and I took a short video of him riding my Bolens 1476 with the 14 hp single cylinder Wisconsin S14-D motor. I did a hub/tire/wheel upgrade using cast iron dexter 4 bolt trailer hubs and 10" front steel wheels with 4.00-10 tri-ribs and the original looking Duro 26x12-12 trenchers. I have a Brinly box blade, three point and shaft drive tiller, it is a foot pedal hydro and weighs in at almost 1100 pounds with nothing on it. It steers like power steering, raises the tractor, and saves on wear and tear of steering parts.
