Technical Odd site going down the road...

  1. On my way into the 4 letter word today, Some traffic today compared to what it has been.
    Seen this on a trailer and had to take a shot, Kind of hard to do @70.
    I have seen snow tracks before on a Model A and T's but never with small double bogie wheels let alone in AZ. Thought I would share..
    Wish I could have got a pic of the under structure.

    Purpose built no doubt but the story on what it was used for back when it was put together sure would interesting.

    Look at the rear hubs.
    They are dropped like a high crop tractor

    I have seen similar set ups on Model T's and Model A's, they are probably more prevalent in Minnesota for obvious reasons s-l1600-22-e1550526579368.jpg

    Without individual rear brakes they are almost impossible to turn.

  21. I had one of those here. The whole hub conversion is bloody heavy. The tracks were super heavy. Fits on a normal rear axle with no extra work. If i remember the original axle would fit in the top cog in the pic on the right.

    The hub is like a reduction gear like early VW buses have for thise that are familiar. The snowbird kits ive seen utilized all model A wheels. I don't think ive seen one with those smaller wheels? I dunno but I love that thing that's for sure!

    I want a set of hubs like that for my 8n tractor.
    But install them upside down.
    Would love to have a slammed tractor.
