  1. I will need my k241 engine rebuilt for the restoration of the 1056. Does anyone have experience / suggestions for machine shops within a reasonable drive? Also what is reasonable $ for a normal rebuild? (I know can vary depending on parts and machine work needed just looking for an average on what other members have spent)
  2. horses and stuff

  3. I am looking for a belt guard for my 1056 10hp kohler starter gen engine. Will a 12 hp engine starter/gen guard fit?
  4. I stopped in at my favorite local hardware/a little of everything store Paul B Zimmermans. They are the only store who had the out end axle bearings torrington b-1616 and the seals skf 9815. I did not check all the bearings on the list for the three and four speed transmissions. I do need the splined shaft bearing on the case. m-10121 and the bearing inside the input shaft b-108. They can order me those however I may just get them online. and they have enamel ag paint in rattle cans, quarts and gallons in IH red. I stopped in at the local Napa and they could get me most of them but the b-108 bearing he gave me a price of $69 and gave me a size of 2 3/4" that is the only thing the catalog would show (make sure you check if you go to napa they are quoting the correct bearing (why I ended up at Paul Bs). While your there you can stop in just down the street at Agway and order a new trans gasket and shift boot. I think the shift boot was 6 or 7 bucks and the gasket was 5 ish. So if your having trouble in the Ephrata Pa area finding someone to get you the correct stuff, try the parts dept at Paul B's .
  5. I am looking for an engine belt guard for a starter generator 10hp kohler on a 1056.

    I like to see em all too. JD'd, Cubs, WH, farm tractors they are all good. My dad and I restored a 54 Chevy pu, and an early Farmall F-20. And it's great to have a fellow Lancaster Countian on here (I live in Stevens). Welcome to the lil red site, these guys here are great and helped me out a lot and my first restore has just begun.
  7. This is a 2 part post. I was on my way home from work on Friday and took the back road as I usually do a few times a week. I saw a very nice restored 857 on West Church Street in Stevens PA (Upper Lancaster county) I stopped in yesterday to take a good look and it is very nicely done. If your in the area and in the market he is asking $1000 obo. If you are the current owner I live close and in the process of restoring a similar tractor, Iwould like to talk to you about your restoration if you wouldn't mind. Sorry I am on vacation at the time. My son took some pictures but I'm not sure if I can download them.
  8. Bearings for the input shaft and all the seals are ordered and will be here Friday all the other bearings cleaned up great and run smoothly. I have to get the case gasket and shift rod boot to put it together but we are off to vacation Saturday so it will be at least a week till i can work on it again :-/ One picture is the young man helping with disassembly and the other is the paint match. The original looks a little more orange but close enough. I did a touch up on my 518 deck with it and you can't even see a difference. The paint is Tallman's AG Specialty coatings 5455 0 IH red (2150)
  9. Thank you for all the help so far, it is greatly appreciated. Does anyone know where to get the rubber boot for the top of the trans and the shift lever or what are you using?
  10. That is fine. I will try to contact him and will let you know. We are getting ready to leave for vacation on Saturday. When I drained the case there was water in it but no rust. I put a light coating of grease on everything before I reassembled it to keep it from corrosion. Everything cleaned up pretty well with saftey clean. I just want to replace the other seals (does anyone have a list of seal part numbers for all the seals needed) but can the case be put back together with sealant rather than a gasket? This was my original intentions. Yes I will need a copy of the transmission manual. Sorry for any bad grammar I'm typing this quickly on my lunch break Mark
  11. Here's a close up of what is left of the end of the shaft. Thankfully when I took the case together the other day the pulley was poorly welded and I was able to use a drift to get it off.
  12. I have the shaft out I just have to figure out how to get pictures from my phone. I believe i can salvage the pulley for now. I will have to drill and tap for a new set screw in a different location. As far as the bearings go there is a 1 needle that came out and was in the outer race... now bent. But all the bearings are gone from the outer race.
  13. I did have the case split and I need the input shaft and both needle bearings. My thought for repair was to have the shaft machined smaller and try to find other bearings but that would require machining of the case also and possibly finding a seal to fit the case and shaft. We want to use the tractor so its not going to be a perfect restore but it needs to work. I can take the case apart when I get home to take some pictures. I put it back together because I'm forgetful. Even at work I put bolts back in when I take things apart. Not hard to do I don't have the bolts in at the moment as I put it together and painted it so it doesn't corrod. As far as the hydro trans from the other tractor. I have the complete tractor less the motor and some odds and ends I used to fix my other 51h and my father's 520hc so all the parts are there. I've even considered cutting the frame on that one and use even the frame (Frankentractor). But I wantall the old sheet metal on it so I'd have to figure out how to bolt the rear seat pan on. I'd like to do the hydro swap but in a way id like to keep it close to original.
  14. I am restoring a 1056 and upon removing the trans axle (3 speed with reverse) we found the input shaft pulley welded to the shaft... upon removing the belt found the shaft had a lot of play side to side. I was planning to split the case anyway to give everything a good cleaning so that's what we did. It was no surprise to fined the shaft worn and the outer needle bearings gone. The teeth on the shaft and directly related gears have some rounded edges but I feel that they are still usable. Are there parts available for this to be repaired? Here is the other thought but can it be done? I have a 518 hydro lying around that was a donor tractor for a blown engine in another 518. Would it be possible to transplant the hydro axle in the 1056 and has anyone done this kind of swap before?
  15. I am in the process of restoring a 1056 with my son, upon taking the trans axle out of the tractor we found the input shaft pulley welded unto the shaft, the shaft bearings are basically gone and when I took it apart the shaft is badly worn. So I am considering either a complete trans axle (3 speed with reverse) or parts to repair if they are available, and if it is possible. I am in the Lancaster county Pa area
