Oh yes 28, I will sand the chrome and paint it red, but it stands out in the picture for sure.

grumble, grumble, grumble, I feel like Dr. Frankenstein, allowing the Mrs. to go camping 'once'. I've created a monster, now we're going all the time.

MM - When it is red it will fit in more.

Why did you not go with the new tires your buddy got for you.

Why the replacement rim? Were you unhappy with one of the repars.

28, I don't want this tractor to stand out as a hotrod, so it has to be red. That's just the fitting picture.
I am going with my buddies tires, I just haven't got around to mounting them. The patched up wheel named my tractor and still I wasn't happy with it. This newer one is a lot tougher. Those used tires on the trailer are for another tractor altogether; a Cockshutt 40 Deluxe. You guys may have seen a Blackhawk tractor in the late fifties down in the 'States. That is a Cockshutt.

MM Thanks for getting projects in order for this "old Dude".

Nice looking Cockshutt 40. Do you know what size motor is in it?
What about the base HP?

Most of the earlier Cockshutts, [the real Cockshutts, not the Olivers painted red], had 'Buda' motors, but Buda sold out to Allis-Chalmers in the mid fifties somewhere and Allis-Chalmers wouldn't sell their opposition anymore motors. Cockshutt switched to Perkins and Hercules. This one has a Perkins four cylinder diesel motor. I'll look up the numbers on it.

Thanks MM, interesting motor information. Thanks for checking on the numbers. Do you know when they switched from gas to diesel

tractor companies changed hands and partners so much it would make you dizzy. I had an Oliver crawler . It was a warmed over Cletrac. It had a 4 cylinder Hercules diesel and a dozer blade added to it.

Yes Kenny, I've seen a few Cletracs and they are Olivers.
In my reading today 28, I found out that you may have seen the Cockshutt as a Golden Eagle. Anyhow, this one has an L4 Perkins motor at 269.5 ci. It should have 39 PTO horsepower.
I've been sandblasting this last wheel and then welding up a few pinholes. So here it is primed and painted.
I haven't been cutting a wide swath lately, because the temperature is hovering just under 100* F or 36.5 C. I don't do well working out in front of a south-facing shop in this heat.

MM- Ya I think the one I saw was A Golden Eagle. Thanks for the numbers.

100 degree in your area is real hot.

Rim looks real nice, getting close to mounting some rubber & wheel weights?
