  1. front half of chute for a tall chute or 44" 2 stage

    Yes it does make it throw farther, I made my own also, first put on the single went from average 20'+ to 30 distance, then put it on the deuce 40'+, Jeff.

    Or a fro like my stepson's...
  3. 2 stage snow blower question

    The original owner of my deuce had it on a 314/5-8 with only chains and swore he did fine with it on a sloping gravel driveway/parking area, IMHO the hydrostatic should do better than the manual weight wise, Jeff.
  4. 520-HC

    @Ed Kennell, what wheels did you use on the front of crazy horse? I'm trying to get some ideas for my 312-8 project, Jeff.
  5. Tire Lettering

    These look more rounded sort of like the Markal brand of paint pens I use at work for marking metal ect.
  6. 2 stage snow blower question

    I have done well with fluid loaded tires 150# cast wheel weights and 120# suitcase weights hanging off the back the cab and my 180#, but the blower or cab hasn't came off since mounting 2.5 years ago since I have an extra 520, Jeff.
  7. Tire Lettering

    Jim, used to sell them at AutoZone and Advance, might try there in the custom/tuner sections, Jeff.
  8. Tire Lettering

    @WHX14 try these, then you can do any color your hear desires at the moment...
  9. Kioti CK20

    I took the aluminum cushion valve to another another hydraulic shop to see what was wrong with it and if it could be repaired and it was a simple fix thank goodness, so as soon as I get some more swivels it will be going back on, the blade is wider than the tractor straight but at full angle I believe snow will fall back into/under the tires so I'm making some "cheap" extension wings just for snow duty, I cut down a 55 gallon steel drum today and trial fit till I get some flat bar or angle iron for bracing, once I get everything done and it warm up for good I'll pull it all off and paint it all dark gray matching the tractor frame color, Jeff.
  10. 312-8 Project

    I think I have figured out what to use for my "drop" spindles with out cutting or flipping the axle...oh my my ears are starting to burn... Cub Cadet "wide frame" front spindles as I was back home in WV today and has dad's Cubs out and the came on
  11.  I saw a post you made were you showed three pictures of different tractors with front loaders on them I believe you talk about a Swisher and an Agro something. The third picture that you posted  it says wizard on the side of the tractor I like the way the bucket on the tractor looks do you know what it is?  If you do could you let me know what the brand is and we're might be able to get one?

      I believe you are referring to the "Swisher" brand ATV scoop they are sold at TSC around here, so any farm store but I would also say online as well, should be easily converted if you have the tools/skills, Jeff.

      Thank you! We love the Staunton Va area. Bought my last Harley at Shenandoah Harley Davidson while we were camping in the area on vacation.

  12. You do realize the choke cable routing doesn't have to stay exactly the way WH did it as long as you have enough cable and the ability to attach it securely to where it works with the new carb shouldn't have to change the carb linkage just my , and I'm a hillbilly, Jeff.

    My condolences to you and your family.
  14. 312-8 Project

    Ouch, those cost more than the 312, I seen I can get 6x4.5" wheels but that might not set the sidewalls flush enough found some 3.5" wide for snowblowers but have the long centers for pinning to the axle...decisions decisions...
  15. 312-8 Project

    Couple questions for the more knowledgeable fellas since I'm stuck on 520s, the front wheels are 6" diameter but what width? as I want to go with 3.50-6 tri rib tires for my build, and I see some 12x8.5 "modular" wheels on eBay I'm thinking about for the rear with either 23x10.5 or 24x12 turfs, also I'm thinking of stretching the frame and hood 4-6" and either "flipping" the front axle or making a set of "drop" spindles and/or a custom front drop axle, to give it a little "rake" like my old car, Jeff.
