My shelter in place project.

Did not modify the frame. The loader  had a bracket under the pump that slipped under the grill and past the front axle. All I had to do was remove the little bracket that holds the bottom grille mount in the center.

Got weight rack finished and weights mounted. Did add poor mans power steering to the front spindles. Working on reenforcing the seat pan now. It has some cracks in it and is a little bent out of shape.

Loader manual  I saw recommended 300 lbs. in the weight box. I weighed one of the suitcase weights at 70 lbs. for a total of 280 lbs. with the weight of the bar should be close to 300.  Weights came off an old Massy Fergason combine. I just knew I would need them someday.

I wonder if tri-rib front tires would help with the steering when using a bucket loader. I know on my larger tractors with loaders And manual steering, we put tri-ribs on and it helped. I always wanted to get one for my garden tractor for my smaller lots. Looks great!

Lots of weight on the rear axles but, with careful use this should work. And man the look!

      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!😁
