  1. It was only on CL for 45 minutes when I called, and he said he would give me a call if the first guy didn't take it. $100 for a 416h?, with a leak, a deck and at least 2 hubcaps. Guess that's what I get for messing around in the garage.
  2. It seems like everybody has been watching that one for a while. I missed out on 416 this afternoon just down the road from it in Davison...did u get that one?
  3. Hardtop, welcome...as far as snowblower goes be patient, like bestdogever said, they come up for sale all the time. I got mine in Flushing at a garage sale for $25
  4. Walt...u must have gotten more of the lake effect, over here by flint it was nice and dry powder. The blower on the 312 at mom's didn't even think of clogging, and the blade on my c-105 pushed twice today and it was nothing but powder. Still coming down though, maybe some of that wet stuff is on it way.
  5. Is that a jack stand on the tongue of the cart? I have never seen one of those. My tub cart certainly doesn't have one!
  6. I found another sticker on an 875 wheelhorse in the upper peninsula of michigan the came back to Warren barber Inc in plainwell, gull lake michigan.
  7. True story...212-6 would be a poor replacement for the c141, 212-6 is a lawnmower ,a good one at that, but just a lawnmower. C141 is a tractor.
  8. I HAVEN'T HAD MUCH LUCK POSTING PICTURES...CAME WITH WHAT HE SAID WAS A 6HP TECUMSEH(UNKNOWN IF IT WAS ORIGINAL)., AND AN OLD STYLE UNI-DRIVE TRANNY. I HAVE SINCE PICKED UP A K181 TO POWER IT, HOPEFULLY!
  9. I have gotten a pile of parts that used to be a round hood. It has a tag with a serial number that reads 62-10324. Can someone tell me what model this used to be? Thanks in advance.
  10. YOU GUYS WERE RIGHT....MOTOR DOES SPIN THE RIGHT WAY(COUNTER CLOCKWISE), AND ITS FINALLY IN A MOVING ON ITS OWN. I HAD ISSUES WITH THE TRANSMISSION NOT LETTING UP SO I COULD PUT IT IN GEAR. BELT GUARD WOULD NOT PUT THE TENSION ON THE BELT, DUE TO THE NEW MOTOR'S PLACEMENT. GOT A BRACKET MADE UP AND NOW I CAN GET THE BELT TO SLIP ENOUGH TO GET IT INTO GEAR. NEXT UP PUTTING IT ALL BACK TOGETHER, THEN SOME CABLES(THROTTLE AND CHOKE). HOPEFULLY A PLOW BY THE TIME WE GET SOME SNOW. THANKS FOR THE HELP.
  11. The gx160 is a nice motor...It also starts on the first try, even after sitting for a long period. It was hooked up to a 3000 watt wheelhorse generator on a power washer frame. I bought the package to get the generator, but the motor may have been the best part of the deal. Either way it was a steal, I think I paid $50 for the whole thing.
  12. It looks great...I wanted to do the same thing with a lawn ranger I recently picked up. The problem is I don't think it will work, because the shaft on my 5.5hp Honda(GX 160) turns counter clockwise. That's what I get for thinking
  13. I appreciate the info. Unfortunately, I have no engine or gas tank that came with it, and the previous owner butchered the hood. It does have the round fenders, but not the solid tires.So that will at least narrow it down to being a '63 or '64. Anyway you cut it, I have my work cut out for me!
  14. I appreciate the input. Much to my surprise, the first rim came off fairly easily. The tire on the other hand, put up quite a struggle when it came to trying to remove it.Next up, trying to figure out the age of this thing. I was able to remove the paint off the serial number tag. Can anybody give me info on that?? It has a serial number of 7243
  15. I just got an old lawn ranger(pre-1964 I believe), or most of one, and I don't want to screw it up anymore than it already is. My problem is that I am not sure how to take the back wheels off. It looks like they have a bolt on the inside of the rim that works as a sort of set screw. I would appreciate any info on how to remove the rear wheels. They still have the original wheelhorse tires, I am guessing that they are not going to slide right off. Any advice/expertise would be appreciated.
