  1. Sickle Bar Mower SMS-425

    Looks Like you got plenty of help, good luck (my pic, just for fun) Had to play with input pulley size to get proper speed at rocker box.
  2. C-120 Relocate muffler (Kohler)

    Would like to relocate muffler, does get hot in carb, fuel pump aria after mowing for an hour or so. Have heard some people have had vapor lock issues. I like the look of the factory muffler, but the heat. Don't want a big stack sticking up n the air. I have seen some with the smaller "shower head" mufflers but was wondering about noise (are they louder). Have also seen a few pic's of newer tractors that looked like the muffler was mounted horizontally above the PTO. I think I even saw one with a small chrome heat shield. Also looks like the air from the engine fan helps to dissipate the heat. Looking for any one that has good pic's of or ideas about this.
  3. 2 piece cultivator 7-1723

    I believe the forward one snaps into the "tach-o-matic" and the small bar in the middle attaches to the lift system (rod not shown) The back section slides into the slot hitch on the rear of the tractor (If you have one) which also is attached to the lift system. Nice set up, whole thing lifts up & down with the lift arm and you can control depth with the adjusting knob. I'v been looking for one (set) but that's a bit far for me. If I've got any of this wrong, I'm sure some one will chime in and correct me.
  4. throttle lever

    Bad news, can't find the "T" handle. Its a well used cable (42 years old) has the two supports still on it. Where the insulation is gone is where it runs under the exhaust. it is well lubed and works, but it ain't like new. It's your call, I don't know how hard it is to find one. If you want it I'll make you a good deal.
  5. throttle lever

    I have one off a 1974 C-100. The "T" handle is broke where it attaches to the lever. (I have the handle) Let me know if you are interested. Can send pictures if it would help.
  6. fuel petcock

    I got a C-100 Black plastic tank. Has the 90 deg. shut off and is still in tank w/grommet. I can pop it out if your still interested.
  7. C-120 106752 choke cable

    A used one that works.
  8. C-120 106752 choke cable

    Still looking ??
  9. C Series Parts Needed

    If it's an 8 speed I might have what your looking for. Got every thing from what you put your hand on to the pin that touches the deck.
  10. custom exhaust help

    I'v been looking at mufflers for my C-120. One option I'v found is this universal muffler on e-bay, may or may not be of help to you.
  11. 74/76 C's W/snow blade

    A good day's work for the 74 C-100, sadly it died that winter. (Broke crank) BUT it's replacement (a 76 120) is ready & eager
  12. Thank you all 3 for the replies. I have printed off the down load but it isn't a good picture of actually pulley locations. The pic's from "Sorekiwi" is what I was looking for. And I was already aware (from previous owner) there might be an issue with pulley speed. On the original application the idler is the "clutch" for the blade. I just need the idler to hold proper belt tension from the "C" series PTO. I am also tossing around the idea of modifying a mule drive and driving it from the front. (Idler probably a lot simpler) I wonder if anyone knows what the actual RPM speed is on ether the cross shaft or the wobble box drive is supposed to be? Looking at the parts list it says the input pulley for the cross shaft is 5.04" The output pulley is supposed to be 2.5" both of mine are smaller. one positive the complete cross shaft assy is new (bearings and all) Should not be hard to change pulley size as needed. It also appears that the pulley size on the engine is larger dia. on the "C" (and two different sizes to chose from) At least a 5" on the input cross shaft ought to get me closer to where I need to be. Once again thank you all for the info.
  13. Looking for a good picture of the PTO pulley set up for a SMS 425 sickle bar mower. Bought one recently but part of the drive was reworked. (no idler) I plan on adapting it to fit the "attach-o-Matic" but would like to see a good picture of the original pulley system to be able to fab an idler.
  14. I was curious why there aren't more swap meets posted on the Red Square calendar. I go to lagtmag sometimes to see if theirs any thing close.
  15. If your going to keep it switch to LED it's well worth the money. Like mentioned before super low amp draw and almost no heat.I have actually melted a plastic lens on my C100. I have 2 pick ups and have switched all back up, cargo, 3rd brake & interior lights to LED. The pic's don't really do it justice, they do work well at night. I use superbrightled.com and have been happy with there products and there return policy is good if you aren't happy with the lights. I went with the more traditional look, it's not as bright as the other ones shown but like I said I'm happy. This is a new lens cover and I removed & painted the housing white.I got the rear light bar at a local store. (drilled NO holes) Got two magnets from the hardware and fastened them to light bar, it's almost too bright at night. What you cant see is an LED map light mounted up under the rear fender. Its a perfect hook up light and has its own switch
