Combine axle for wd

Hello, I have a WD Allis and I am interested in putting a combine axle up front for more strength for loader work. Has anyone done this? Is it worth it? Will it be stronger than my current wide front?

Here's your answer, it took a lot of engineering and fabricating, but it can be done. Not sure that the payoff is worth it. If you are overloading your front axle on the WD you need a bigger tractor. Take a look to see what the next weakest link will be once you beef up the front axle, it gets expensive from there.

Mounting hardware & wishbone is weak. Almost as weak as a farmall narrow front pedestal. mount the front plate to the c channel rather than the casting, and extend wishbone. If you"re too squeamish to cut up a junk three bolt, or you don"t have a wide front to start with, you can build it any way you like. You can use a steering half of a wagon gear, and put a p/s unit off of a truck outside the frame rails.

That"s my neighbor"s tractor! Was it at Hutchinson? Saw it during construction. Some WF pix I posted recently re: battery box, are from his WF. I intend to replace the manual steering on my reversed WD with a Gleaner axle and hydrostatic unit, although weight on the steering wheels of a reversed tractor is not much of an issue. I want to do it for the simplicity.

Yep, I took that picture in 2006 at Hutch. THe engineering on the tractor is excellent, something for everyone that has a project in mind to aspire to.

I agree that the combine axle would be a good candidate and using the hydraulic steering would be the way to go, especially on a reversed rig.

How in the world will you steer it?? The original AC power steering stalls and manual steering will be tough.. Are you going with another power steering..?

Why does your PS stall. If your running a tractor with wore out bearings(thrust) and wore out steering gear it will make anything stall out. I have Factory PS on my 45 with a loader and if I have too much on the front it might not want to turn while sitting stationary but, all you have to do is move forward or back a touch and it will turn.

Today's Featured Article - The Engine Rebuild Kit - by Curtis Von Fange. I always liked engine rebuild kits. They have all the replacement parts for overhauling an engine without going to the store to get gaskets, special measuring tools, or miscellaneous parts. They come neatly packaged, clean and tidy. But it's important not to let that packaging lull you into a false sense of security. The appearance of matching sleeves, pistons, rings, and bearings can cause frustration and agony if not properly measured and installed in a workshop environment. Following c ... [Read Article]
