FWIW & FYI: FORD/DEARBORN never manufactured anything -except the early plows. Every implement was manufactured by an outside supplier under contract with Ford/Dearborn which allowed Ford/Dearborn to slap a decal on them with their own part numbers and model numbers. Ford built plows at the Rouge for the first few years under Ferguson-Sherman Mfg. Loaders were built by A.F Wagner Iron Works; Danuser Machine Co; Superior Pipe Specialties Co; Towner Mfg. Co; Western Equipment; and others. Ford had final say in design and such so manufacturing was to be to their specs in cooperation with ta basic design. You can get a copy of the MPC - SEE LINK - from our MANUALS forum to see each model and get ideas from there. MPC's don't show any actual blueprints with dimensions and specs but you can get the idea and even better if you have an actual unit to work with.
