This is probably the weirdest post I will ever make and the weirdest one you all will ever see. I have a 36 WC frame and rear axle. A young man looked at it and asked if the rear end could be turned over to lower the rear tires . He said he wants to build a lowered "rat rod " tractor.
I told him I don't know but I'm sure someone on here might. So I've done it ! Does anybody know?

Yes it can be done but as Texas Denny says it will make for funny lubing of the bull gear and maybe even problems with leaks from seals not made to how fluid like they would have to do if the rear end was flipped over

Wouldn't that give you four reverses and one forward?

Little Ed,
Reminds me of a friend of my son who, back in the early 80s turned the rearend in his "73 Plymouth upside down to "jack up the rear".
Boy was he surprised when he dropped her in drive and she backed up. LOL

Yes. I have a WD that I have been tempted to do the same to- just cuz" I can. I would invert the finals, and use two seals on the axle to hold the oil in- it would look like the one in the picture below. Figured it would drop the frame by 14 inches. Haven"t decided on how to handle the front end, but would like to keep as much original as possible. Then take it to a tractor show, stand by and listen to hear someone say- My uncle had one just like that!

This might create an issue in lubricating the final drive gears.

It can be done by turning the final drives.

Texas Denny, it would be the same as the IB vs. the B. Should not be any more of an issue than lubrication of the final drive on an IB. IMHO

How do you lubricate the final drive when it is upside down.

Rely on "splash"- basically hope that the little gear carries enough oil to the big gear and then use a couple seals to keep it from running along the axle. That"s my plan, anyway- to create a conversation piece. Sure wouldn"t farm with it!
