Does anybody have a good photo of the Patent Label for a number 12 Motor Grader.
We have restored a 1944 # 12 that belonged to the US 7th Fleet during World War 2.
See attached Photos.

Looks like the front tires are backwards.

Looks like the front tires are backwards.

***Here we go again, hahaha. The great debate about which is the proper direction for the steer tires. Old Iron Habit and Jan Meermans where are you?
I have mine mounted the same way. The reasoning is they won't wear as fast if you road the machine often? Personally, I like it when they are all in the same direction...some suggested I install in other configurations. If I had diamond tread, it would not be period correct perhaps? Some asphalt people run modern machines with smooth tires. Machine pictured looks great regardless. JM

Nice looking Grader!!
This video should end the discussion on the tread direction on the front wheels once and for all.  :)  :)  :)
