  1. Making a Plow - the sequel

    Thanks for the encouragement. The holes for the cross bar are fully in the angle iron. I'll have to look at switching the brackets left - to - right. See if I can make that work. It really needs the cross piece welded in there to hold the angle irons together --- keep them from twisting. I think that's the main problem --- an uneven load and it just twists the thing off the axle. I would like to fix it. It is nice to scrape the snow down with. If it had springs, and folded when I hit something it would be way better too, but it does not, and that is another project. That's why I was thinking I might be best to find a WH plow and be done with it.
  2. 603 Finished!

    That looks fantastic
  3. Making a Plow - the sequel

    Well....... back to the snowblower... good thing I have both... I broke my homemade rear hitch thingy again plowing yesterday. Never did get a support bar across there. Disapointing... may find a real WH plow for her someday and forget about this one...
  4. 312-8 tire size

    I have the narrower tires 22 X 7.50 and chains on my '85 310-8. I prefer them over the wider tires myself. Plus my chains only fit the narrower tires. The narrower tire is no longer produced to my knowledge. Too bad. I'll have to by wider chains someday.
  5. 252H in Ohio

    I've got word from my neighbor that his co-worker is selling a 252H. I'm not interested, but if anybody wants to know more I'll send you the contact info. Supposedly it runs and cuts but the deck is not too good. And has a snowplow with chains and weights. Asking $100 - I'm told. If the plow fit my 310 it would be in my yard by now. In northeast Ohio.
  6. Plow time again

    Aint it funny how a just few short months ago we were all praying for snow? And now we can't stand it!
  7. Making a Plow - the sequel

    My plow frame was reassembled as first built, but using grade 8 bolts - I stayed with 3/8" bolts. I've used the plow a couple times since, and today's 6 inches or so was heavy wet snow. So far so good.
  8. Cleaning and preserving tire chains

    I vote to say too much trouble to bead blast them or anything like that. A ride on a dry gravel road followed by soaking in the off season in oil, diesel , kerosene, would be my choice. Or drag them around on the beach all summer behind your 4 wheeler while you're having fun.
  9. top of the page - manuals tab
  10. Your Bolens plow is a step ahead of my modified JD plow At least you have trip springs on yours. If you look in the manuals section you can study and get a pretty good idea of how the parts work to angle the plow. Here's the one I put together. I fashioned the frame after a WH unit.
  11. Simplicity Model L

    I'd think about it if it had a snow plow
  12. The "My other hobby " thread

    Looks like some beautiful riding grounds you've got there.
  13. The "My other hobby " thread

    I'm just getting my feet wet in another interesting, to me, hobby - model ship building. My first attempt here in the planking stage. I'm having fun with it.This is a pretty small one here - it will be about 15 inches long when finished.

    Not much to do there by the looks. A coat of wax and a seat cover and your done.
