Cab test fit

Postby Bbhzx12 » Mon Nov 11, 2019 7:48 pm

Started a quick test fit of the canvas cab tonight. Likely off a bit, but it’s looking like it will line up well! Any insight is appreciated!!

Sorry the photos posted in reverse order.

In the lumber yard cabinet shop we made a frame from 1” x 1” x1/8” angle iron to box in the forklift operator. Then we covered it with 1/4” plywood. We put the doors on hinges with pins to remove them. Great for the outdoors.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I still haven’t quite figured out the door situation on this one, I think the intent is to enter from the rear. Once I make sense of the canvas and remaining brackets I’m sure it will make sense!

they had no door, you climb over the back of the seat

Yes I agree I’ll be climbing over the back. Maybe door isn’t the right term. There’s a panel in the back that appears to pivot on a rod on the right side. It looks like it may have just been tied on the left when closed.

It's pretty obvious from the frame rear mounting point that it is not a Cub heat houser.

Denny,
Wondering if it’s a “deluxe” IH windbreaker. Very similar appearance from the windbreaker photos I’ve seen, and similar to the Cub cadet deluxe windbreakers. Not certain, but I’m looking forward to getting it fixed up! Still have to straighten some brackets that were bent from storage/moving/ect. And there’s 2 I haven’t figured out yet. One looks like it might hold the canvas away from the exhaust manifold, possibly??

Not sure, it was in Ashby, MA on Craigslist.

I would explore the plywood option mentioned above too.
