  1. 522xi / Kohler CH22s carb rich?

    Kohler Command V Twins are notorious for bad ignition coils, I just had to replaced both of them on my CH22. Use a spark tester to see if both cylinders are firing as they should. Here's a good video
  2. "Clyde"--Dad's 953

    What a great present for your dad! You could always put a set of R4 tires on the old girl
  3. I thought you guys might want to see this

    Sorry for your loss, your Dad must have been a good man to raise a son like you to provide a final tribute like that, thanks for sharing and God bless...
  4. 310-8 preferred speed for lawn cutting

    I'm in the minority on this one for sure. I mow in 1st gear with my C-101 with the 42RD deck. Second is way too fast, too many back surgeries for the bumps and jolts of the higher speeds. I do wish that 1st gear was the same ratio as reverse, that would be about perfect.
  5. 1960 suburban 400 project

    Nice project tractor and I see it also has the 1960 firewall to add to Achto's observations. I'd say a 1960 model with a '61 hood.

    Oh my....
  7. 2017 Gardens

    Once the rain started things tanked pretty quickly, it's impossible to work wet ground as you know. But, it's like my Dad said, "there's always next year". Being in my late 60's I can only hope there is a next year The good thing is that the peppers and onions are thriving in spite of all the precipitation.
  8. Allis Chalmers garden tractor - $2295

    Cool old tractor! Wonder if Tuff-Bilt used those as a model for their tractors?
  9. 2017 Gardens

    Farmer, that is a fantastic garden you have there. Mine started out good but we are now 12" of rain above normal for the summer and consequently the weeds have run amok due to the inability to cultivate.
  10. My 704 Update

    She came out really nice Don
  11. New to this. 704 questions.

    You should be able to polish that engine pulley with some crocus (emery) cloth. I love my old 704, I call it the yard tug, it moves everything around the house from my 5X10 trailer to the garden cart without a whimper.
  12. Sometimes you just know...

    Nice one Craig!
  13. 2017 Gardens

    This pretty much sums it up
  14. What's Green and Yellow?

    Cleaned 'er up a bit, new seat and R4's for the rear, blade fabbed up and mounted. This one will be the prime snow mover.

    Those are really sweet, beats carrying a Weed Eater around any day.
