I am considering adding an axle trumpet to the LEFT side of my '52 Cub & adding another seat for a buddy rider. I've seen photos on line where folks have done this.

It appears that this trumpet, and longer axle within, should bolt up directly to the left side of the transmission.

The things that I see needing to be done are:

1) Extend the left side brake shaft (manufactured part). 2) Modify a second platform and install (modified part).
3) Install a second seat assembly (from parts tractor)
4) Install a second steering wheel support & decorative steering wheel from parts tractor.
5) Extend the draw bar (modified part).
6) Extend the left end of the front axle (adjustment)

Am I over simplifying this? Am I over looking something?

Looking for your experiences.

Thanx !

Moving the axle from right to left will work, but it be 1-1/4" short. A good machine shop should be able to lengthen it.

The front axle extension is an adjustment, but it might need to go farther than the last hole to not make 3 tracks with the tires. It needs to be in the tube as far as the last hole allows, which might mean a welded on extension (really well welded extension. Jim

Today's Featured Article - Allis Chalmers ED40 - by Anthony West. Allis Chalmers as a tractor manufacturer in its own riht is but a memory. However the number of AC tractors still in existence today as either restored or unrestored examples is a testament to the quality of their products. This in itself is always apparent here in the U.K when attempting a purchase, as no matter what the model or condition the price will always be strong. ... [Read Article]
