  1. Quality electric motor brands?

    The world is a changin'... Sears used to be my favorite store...
  2. Quality electric motor brands?

    Didn't know! Baldor was bought out!
  3. Rebuild or go new

    Here's where you go to learn all about Wheel Horses. Brian's is where you go to learn all about Kohlers! That said, when I need an engine I buy one with the tractor still attached! Cheaper than just the engine! Plus I can see and hear it run!
  4. Quality electric motor brands?

    Back in the 70s & 80s I ran Dayton 5hp for 15 years. Lots of sandblasting too! And I've always figured Baldor was good.
  5. Seafoam. Your thoughts

    I spoke with a BerryMans rep recently who told me that basically it was Seafoam at 1/2 the price. If you'll search for Seafoam Msds you'll find that's its not rocket science. Not saying that it can't work, just that someone might be getting wealthy per gallon. Not knocking it. I use it! But I might be using more BerryMans....
  6. Seafoam. Your thoughts

    I think it has helped. But don't expect to not have to ever tear into a carb again! It won't work every time.
  7. 520xi leaking hub

    Lots of good info already. If nothing has damaged the axle surface a new seal will solve the problem.
  8. A Sobering Day

    Oh for goodness sake! I'm so sorry! I can't imagine! I have so few words... We wonder why... Hoping for the best!
  9. Biddenden Tractorfest and Country Fair.

    Absolutely Awesome! Thank you for the pictures!
  10. mid mount grader

    Same thing with the front blade! For fine finish work you can't beat the feel a manual lift gives you!
  11. Happy Birthday Lane!!

    Another late arrival... Happy Birthday! Day late...
  12. 3pt Wrecker attachment

    You have my attention.
  13. Happy Birthday Stevasaurus

    Late to the party but still best wishes!

    Where's home?
  15. How do you fix a gas tank? And my new purchase...

    Randy, that nitrogen welder is new to me but maybe that would have prevented some of my failures. I done plastic welds that looked good and then completely failed. Total waste of time! Then others were fine...
