Russ This is going to be a tough one since many companies built these conversions. Hopefully you will get lucky and someone who collect them chimes in on this question. Ed B

I obtained one that was very similar in 1955 I got it from a son of the ford dealer in our town of the model T days. He said his dad bought the kit new and rigged it up for him to use on the farm to pull a binder. It was very similar to yours. The son called it an aFORDaTRACTOR ,it had rollers on pins for pinions and the same style wheels and bull gears, I don't remember it having those large brake drums and bands on the steel wheels though.

What you have is probably a Staude Mak-a-Tractor.

Russ The tractor attachment is either a 1917-18 Tracford or a 1917-19 Fonddulac. The tractor attachments are almost identical but each company used a different foundry and the castings/patterns were slightly different. If you post a close-up of the bull gear segments where they are bolted together from the outside, I could tell what you have (don't need the whole bull gear and the backside is already showing in your second photo). Also, need the width of the gears and any part #'s or lack of them on the bull gear segments. Glenn

Kevin Post some photos of your tractor attachment and lets see what you have. Glenn
