Thanks mopar!

You actually got that right! It took me a couple of months to figure that out a long time ago.

One of the axles if from a Toyota Ke70. European model I guess? The other one is from a old classic Ford Anglia 105.

Somehow, on the cars the axles actually rotated in opposite directions, which for me is just perfect as I can simple connect both axles with a chain. If both rotated to the same directions, I would had to make a gearbox with two gears.

By the way, the chain drive between the two axles, also serves to correct the difference between the diff ratios since they are different.

Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for July 2019

Some more fun facts about Pedro's backhoe,
I remember reading one of his posts where he mentioned his age when he started
the build, he was 16 or 17 at the time and that was 5 or 6 years ago!


Since then he's also rebuilt a dozer and a forklift. I have a picture of the dozer on my old computer, I'll see if I can find it.


Lately, he's been building smaller things such as cylinders for the front end loader he is building from scratch.





He's also teaching me about lathes and what all those thingies are for.


Maybe we can coax him in to posting some more pictures of his other machines

and also his lathe.

Re: MTF's Machine of the Month for July 2019

Restoration of a small Italian crawler tractor from 1962 with 28HP air cooled engine.

Had to put new brake liners, rebuild various worn out shafts, bushings and so on. Broken stuff, engine air ducting was full of the nastiest stuff I ever saw. All the oils in the gearbox were full of water.

The mower is also homemade, it's a bit ugly though as it was under the 125th revision
