Just got done dragging the 48 Power Wagon out of my shop today. I have it tore down to the frame and getting ready to sand blast it and paint the frame. I have a REAL NICE Flat bed for it now to go on the back. After that I can put it all back together and start on the cab and nose. Mark H.

Mark , is that a Massey 135 you got hooked to that Dodge frame??? By the way thanks for the inside barn pic post, very nice barn......you got some very good ideas ! (made me one of those booms you had posted awhile back on the 8n tractor board) Catfish

That is my 1969 Massey 135 Orchard Perkins Gas 3 cyl. Realy love the power steering, live PTO, Positive lift control and disk brakes. It has differental lock and a 2-stage clutch for the pto. Lots of lights, 12 volts along with a 3-speed High/Low Transmission. Saves a lot of work having a boom I pull engines and load trucks with it. Mark H.

I thought it was ! Yea , they're pretty good tractors , hard to beat for the size. Mine is Perkins 3 cyl. diesel MF135 Deluxe also have a 1950 8n Ford , I use 'em to bush hog , plow ,scrape etc. I like them "big tires" you got , pretty neat!!!!!!Catfish

You gonna leave those military sneakers on it?


Willy-N    Posted 03-06-2003 at 14:07:47       [Reply]  [No Email]
I have a set of 16.00 X 9.50s going on much better in ice and snow than these are. Nicer ride also then the military but over 700.00 for the set!! These came with the truck and are being sold to help pay the tax on the other ones. Mark H.

I had enough experience with military tires to know I don't want any. Them things are slick as snots on a doorknob when you get 'em in mud or snow. Only reason I would have any would be for authenticity or "ceremonial" purposes.

Being that it is a Civilian Model it will look OK. The new tires are so much better then the old ones nowdays. Mark H.

wondering if you plan on boxin the frame while you have it like that , makes it stronger , been following your project , nice job


Willy-N    Posted 03-06-2003 at 14:09:54       [Reply]  [No Email]
These frames are pretty strong and do not flex much. With the new bed going on it will be a lot stroger than befor. I am changing out the frame bolts with new ones and that will be better. Mark H.


Hey Mark!    Posted 03-06-2003 at 13:35:23       [Reply]  [Send Email]
I asked my Mom, and she says I can come over and play with you and all your cool toys...

But I have to be home for supper...

Willy-N Picture of the new bed    Posted 03-06-2003 at 14:16:15       [Reply]  [No Email]

You could help me put my new bed on the back of it. I will coat it with new paint and rhino cover the bed over the flat steel for a non slip. Got the bed for 150.00 and it is in good shape too. All box steel under in and the rack is 2 inch box with a 1/2 inch plate angle for support. That is where my back up lights will mount and still be below the cab for looking good. They are off a Fire truck and are 500,000cp work lights bought them new off eBay for 69.00 for the pair. No way close to what they cost new. Mark H.

Mark, The dump lift I want to get rid of would be great with that.

I thought about a Hydraulic lift for the bed. It would take some work to set it up but would be nice for unloading things fast! Have to re/work the complete rear frame to put it in. Mark H.

All you have to do is level out for the axil humps and set the dump frame on top. The problem you might have is the PTO off the transmission. Years ago I put them on Fords, Chevys and a Studebaker with no problem.

I am setting this one up for a hunting rig to go into the back country. Shorten the rear frame 12 inches by moving the rear cross member in further. It now is bolted between the rear spring mounts so you can back up to a hill and not run into the dirt as much. My bed is 7 ft long. It won't be a short box but in between the two. They stick out pretty far with the old bumper and bed they used to have. That is why I want the extra lights on it. I will be putting 2 sets of head lights on the front. Stock ones on the fenders and another set of High output Quarts Haligons hi/low beam just above the front bumper with there own dimer pedal and turned out a little to see off to the sides more. I will put my work/back up lights on the rack but they won't stick above the cab. The wireing inside the rack so no wires show. Mark H.

Working at home helps alot. I just try to use all the spare time between post to get something done each day. Once the frame is done it will go fast just need to bolt stuff on the do the cab and hood last. Mark H.
