  1. Quick Fixes

    953 nut "By the book, by the boom."
  2. Quick Fixes

    The handiest thing in the world might be small stainless hose clamps. They can be used to retain wheels on spindles instead of those "c" clips. They can be used in emergency to retain balls in worn tie rod ends. They work on mowing deck lifts to prevent the central deck spindle grease fitting from rubbing on the deck lift lever and destroying the grease fitting. Work for me, especially in a jam. -Tom

  4. Mowing In Air Conditioned Comfort

    The door seems to have a shoelace hinge?
  5. PTO clutch material thickness ? C195

    Your friendly Deere dealer has clutch facings that can be fitted to the WH pto with just a little ingenuity. Take your old one in hand and see what he has that might do. The thickness is not critical but you will have to decide to use a glue or rivets or both perhaps.
  6. 60" mower deck for Mid mount Grader Blade

    Have 50" mid-mount grader and would trade for a 48" deck, not a 60" one. Have one? In southern Rhode Island
  7. Front spindal question / C-175. Rim falls off

    Previous post refers to discussion about these roller bearings. Click away
  8. Front spindal question / C-175. Rim falls off

    The split shaft collar shown can be put one the spindle directly, with a washer. Yes, as I said, my WH's have been so equipped. And you might consider replacing the junk bearings with heavy duty roller bearings. More if interested.

  10. Front spindal question / C-175. Rim falls off

    I have two modified "C" chassis both equipped with 3/4" split shaft collars to secure wheels on front spindles. Work really well. Simple to do.
  11. I back up the rear wheels onto an ordinary pair of ramps which raises the rear of the machine about a foot. This, together with the application of a no-seize paste when installing mower blades has made life so much easier. BTW, you can avoid the center spindle grease fitting on 48" decks being sheared off by using hose clamps to prevent the deck from side shifting.
