68 424 modifications

Hi Guys... has anybody ever successfully attempted to replace the forward and reverse handle with a foot pedal on a 68ish 424? Mine has steering brakes and I think I could disconnect the pedal on the right side, then take off the handle and put on a foot pedal. It looks like it would work.

Also does anybody have a foot pedal and the necessary hardware?

I have AG tires and wanna replace them with yard tires. Anybody wanna swap?

John

Re: 68 424 modifications

I have used turf tires that came off a Gravely 23x10.50-12 rears. They are just sitting in the barn. Here is a picture of the style they are, not the actual tire, but they have tons of tread left on them. If you want them, they are free just come get them. By the way, the tires you have, what size are they and how many ply? 6 ply?

Re: 68 424 modifications

Here are the pictures of the tires finally. They need a good cleaning, but still have some tread.
