    Where are you mounting this on your trailer? I'm assuming sides or front cause only red can face rearward.

    Wrong thread. Didn't do anything in my shop so I'll just leave it and mess people up.

    Are you going to use a drill press or a mill to cut the hole with the holesaw? In any case, use lots of oil, as slow a speed as possible, and hearing protection.



    I have more ideas than ambition.

    The oval red ones will face rear,,
    the amber ones in the square tube will be on the front corner at a 45 degree angle facing forward.
    Some of the tractors include JD 4105, JD 855, JD 650,,,, and,,, the IH 584 4WD
    My favorite attachment is the homemade landplane,,, EVERYONE needs one of those!!

    I do not even want to discuss the tail lights I have mashed,,
    I have ordered a set of lights from Amazon that should resolve the tail light issue,,,

    These are steel boxes that I will weld to the trailer,,
    the lights are grommet mounted in the box,,



    I will add some steel above and below the box,,
    I bought an aluminum set of these light boxes for my equipment trailer. Careful, those edges are sharp! I used some rubber edge guard material to cover the sharp edges.

    I knew it had low compression, but didn’t expect to find 0 PSI on cylinders 3 and 4. Did a leakdown test and found intake and exhaust valves leaking, pulled the head and will order parts in the next little while.

    Recycled some 3/4" plywood at work into two piece knockdown saw horses. Turned out really nice, another guy was going to bring in his router and round the edges off.


    Final form, with some notches added to hold 2x4's (short 2x6" shown in the notch) with a couple of 8' 2x4"s it makes a nice work surface that you can cut into.



    You can get 2 saw horses out of a 4x8 sheet. You can hang them on the wall and they take up 3" of space.

    Better be careful, looks like a 45. You get power from all 4 cylinders and it might be hard to tame.

    I often wonder if those were made new today if people would buy them. I think there must be 10 Wd’s within a 2 mile circle of our place.

    The WD's were real popular in their time. I was raised on the WC's and always wanted a WD. Then they come out with the 45's and I wanted one even more. Then I got the chance during a plow day to drive a WD45 6 cylinder diesel and I was in 7th heaven. Only one I ever saw. The 45 gassers would pull a 3 bottom plow. The diesel would pull a 4 bottom plow, but when you got to the end and raised the plow, you better have your wits about you, as that thing would go right on through the fence unless you hit the brake to steer it with. I suppose some men would reduce the throttle for the turn, but not us macho men. I was pretty young and of course, stupid back then. Not much better now.

    Those WC's were nearly indestructible. We had 2 of them and never had a repair on either of them. Of course, there was nothing to go wrong on them. No electric system. Hand crank to start. Magneto, so no distributor or points. Change the plugs ever now and them. Change the oil and that was it.
