  2. WHEEL HORSE REAR WHEELS SAFE FOR HIGHWAY USE ?

    Thanks Guys- the way the trailer sits now- it has 3 bars over each exposed inner wheel & tire- inside width of bars is just big enough to squeak a 42" cut mower deck between them-If I could gain an inch on each side it would be great! All "Size matters"! Al
  3. WHEEL HORSE REAR WHEELS SAFE FOR HIGHWAY USE ?

    Thanks Guys- I've been around pee patch a few times & would never just use a wheel or anything that was not approved. Thats why I asked those who know. Thanks again. My worries on the spacers is not that puts a lot on strain on the elongated lugs to mount them. - Al
  4. Hi Guys- I'm speaking of wheels not tires. I picked up a small trailer and by using a wheel that is offset, I can gain enough track width to help getting tractors with larger decks aboard. Thanks for any advice you may give! GO ILLINI!

  7. Raider 12 drive belt slipping

    I had the same problem on the "Yellow 953" I had. It turned out to be that because the same pedal that works the brake, works the clutch- the brake adjustment is too early and won't let the pedal to travel far enough to disengage & engage properly- Set the brake so it doesn't activate til right at the last of the pedal movement- then your clutch will be fine- Al

  9. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Sorry my bad- I meant 2.5-5 lbs- I befuddled about this-the tractor is running again- I put on a known good stock pump-I will research using a return line back to gas tank- I found one video where they did it on a Deere. They used a T fitting & used the regulator to vary the pressure to let fuel go back to the tank. I haven't given up- just retreated to fight another day- Grass had to get cut! Thanks for all the help- I will up date this post or start another when I make the change- Al
  10. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Just to test, I should be able to turn key on @ 4 lbs and let the pump run- and nothing should leak- correct? I have a Nelson muffler right in front of carb- and dont want to start a fire- Al
  11. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Engine won't start at 4 Lbs- but will start @ 4 1/2 Lbs. But then floods out.- Al
  12. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Sorry- left out that I did get the new carb- checked it out , double checked the float levels- Engine won,t start at any pressure lower than 4 Lbs. At 4 1/2 it starts & runs perfect until you slow it down to around 900 rpm or so- then fuel starts coming out and engine floods out. I'm not a novice- but I feel out of ideas- Thanks- Al

    Happy Birthday Terry- appreciate your expertise!
  14. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Hi Guys- Well- I'm sure each one of you have been in the "place" I am right now. You attack a problem systematically & logically & it still doesn't work. I just went back over everything I did to make sure I didn't make any foolish mistakes. Still the same result- engine starts &runs well, but when you slow it down the carb starts leaking out gas and engine chokes out. I'm beginning to think the problem lies in my fuel pump choice. I was looking for a square shaped "Facet" pump that I was familiar with, but they only had a robust looking Edelbrock pump- 2-3.5 PSI- 28GpH. I would like to keep electric pump setup- but need tractor running- What do you guys think? Should I try to install a return fuel line to the tank-OR- install a rpm regulated stock fuel pump? Thanks- Al
  15. POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Thanks for your comments- the throttle shaft on my carb was badly worn- just put up with it until now- combination of needle & seat plus throttle shaft led me to order a new Kohler carb on line-I will let you know what happens- can't wait!- Thanks- Al
