  1. I’m not sure what model I have!

    looks like a nice clean series I Kohler in a C-175. mu guess is it's a Sundstrand hydro (can't see the filter in the back end shot) looks like you could use a muffler too
  2. One thing I like to use when I have to do some heavy de-greasing (especially with chemicals) are those disposable Nitrile gloves... they're thin enough that you can feel what you're doing but keep a whole lot of crud off your hands. only drawback is if it's warm, like yesterday when I was using them, your hands get pretty sweaty I've actually used them to keep my hands warm working outside when it's cold
  3. looks good from here!I bet that cutting oil reeked... looks like sulfur based oil

    I'd rather that than run extra power through the key switch, but hey... everyone makes choices...

    You want to use a relay to power the pump directly from the battery (fused) I used the light switch wiring to activate the relay, it's only "on" when the key is in either start or run
  6. 520-8 Electric Lift

    I ran that same combination last winter (417-8 with electric lift) and it wasn't any different than when I had the snowthrower on a hydro lift
  7. C101 Mysterious Part

    My 417-8 has a slot hitch with the tube and it has a cable running through it. the only problem it has it the cables too short... It wasn't hooked up when I got the tractor and when I connected it I found out why. Not having any rear implements, I disconnected it again and left it... for now
  8. Bernardston Mass Show

  9. Bernardston Mass Show

    anyone have an address for GPS? or is Bernardston small enough that you don't need one...
  10. 417-8 choke cable

    I just replaced the one on my 417-8... with a 312 that i shortened and bent the end on. lol looks good, works great! I got a generic one off eBay that I used on a different project..I wouldn't hesitate to get another
  11. 312-8 wiring nest!

    I've seen worse... i have a C-175 with a factory harness, all black wires... with little numbers on each wire instead of color coded... lol
  12. I confess, I've always liked Panzers...

    make sure and check for attachments! I have a deck, plow, tiller and snowblower that came with my T65. plus I got the original Kohler 8hp (supposedly runs but smokes)
  13. Aftermarket gaskets from "the Bay"

    I've used the sets from eBay. no complaints here. I make sure the head gasket has the metal edge (not sure exactly what it's called) around the inside where you want it to seal well. ,
  14. Panzer T707es

    My T65 there's a guy around here on Craigslist selling new sheet metal parts. I was thinking about getting a new hood for mine, some #$^$^* cut a hole in mine for the replacement motor oil dipstick... I do have the original motor. maybe someday I'll get around to rebuilding it... lol oh, and BTW. get some fish tank gravel and shake it around good to get the rust out of your gas tank. maybe toss a couple bigger stones in as well. I used small tumbling stones in mine and it came out nice and clean
  15. it's a Starrett indicator stand. (surface gage) you can buy one brand new today... for about $250...I have a few of them for the work I get paid for
