I recently acquired an F-11 loader and would like to reverse mount it on a WD-45.

I have found some excellent examples of this on this site. Unfortunately, most of the shots were from some distance and the nature of the mounts is hard to see.

Asking if some of you with one of these could post pictures with suggestions on reverse mounting the loader and operators "platform"

Made mine in the late 70s- Paulson loader on a WD. Cut the steering shaft just to the rear of the bearing near the gas tank, and remove the steering assembly, control rods, etc. Remove the fenders. Travel direction is reversed by removing both rear axles enough to pull the differential gear, turn it 180 degrees to get the gear on the opposite side of the pinion, and reassemble. Set the loader into position with a hoist, and that will dictate where your mounting brackets go on the tractor frame. My clutch and brake pedals are mounted on a steel platform that bolts onto the top of the differential, and shafts go through pipes to cross over...ie, clutch pedal is on the left, tractor clutch linkage is on the new right. Thus, the pipe crosses over for the clutch, the shaft inside operates the new left brake. New right brake pedal pivots on the shaft. My steering is mechanical, with a pinion gear at the base, shaft going to a u-joint connected to the cutoff steering shaft. Doing it over, I'd use a combine steering axle and hydro unit- cheap to pick up in a salvage yard. I added an independent hyd pump on the front of the crankshaft. New throttle control mounts under the gas tank, seat is above it.

Today's Featured Article - Bad Vibes - by Curtis Von Fange. One of the strangest ways to communicate with our tractor is to ask it how it feels. "Ask it how it feels," you say? Yup, ask it how it feels. Now, as with the other articles in this series one has to be able to hear what 'ole blue' is trying to say in response. The nice thing about our old iron friends is that they are usually quite consistent in their response, rather unlike some people I know who might change what they say due to the weather or other mitigating circumstances. But since t ... [Read Article]
