RBT snow cab on a FDT?

Recommended Posts

ridgerunner

Anyone ever mount a RBT cab on a B-series (BigTen) type tractor? I have a nice condition complete orange cab & doors with the fiberglass top and all the frame work, for what I believe came off a RBT just sitting here in the barn. Thought I might put it to use. What modifications would this install require?

I went the other way (FDT cab to a RBT) and did exactly like Noly recommends. In my case, I put it together and with the aid of some welding vise-grip style clamps and cardboard to protect paint, got it all mocked up before figuring out where to drill and bolt. I used plastic spacers from the hardware stores bins-o-goodies by the nuts and bolts to keep metal from contacting metal where it wasn't a great fit, like on the seat pan. I wasn't able to use the dash brace, unfortunately.

That being said, where are you located? Want to figure out a trade on a FDT cab for your RBT cab?

      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!😁
