  1. I think I'm going to make new dipsticks for my units. I think I can make servicing a lot easier, although my record of being right seems to be about five to eight percent as a life time average.
  2. If I may share a thought about tire spacing, I have a set of "D" series axles & am toying with the idea of having 1/4" key-ways cut in them & using two sets 1 1/8 " hubs to run dual wheels (6") on the unit. Dunno whether it would work or not, but I'm thinking about giving it a look-see if I live long 'nuff. Would like to look into putting a dump bed on a "D" series frame with that set up if I am granted enough time & money By our Creator. Would it work? I'd like to find out if I'm bright enough to over-come the problems that could present......................someday. Wondered if this might give some "food for thought" on some other project problems by others. Ron A.
  3. For general info, I asked a factory man why the slippers were not flat on a Sundstrand pump and the response I got was the engine was not run fast enough when unit was in use. I do not remember much more than that of the conversation, but the full throttle speed was stressed for that reason. Ron A dunngawn@hotmail.com
  4. Hand brake help

    Try tightening the band a little bit, Too tight & they won't set, & too loose & they won't engage .
  5. Allis Chalmers 1541 towing valve

    Friend has 1541 A.C. L & G tractor & needs to know where the towing valve is. Can anyone HELP? Ron A. dunngawn@hotmail.com I've been able to find nothing. Not even the kind of hydrostat.
  6. A salute to the good old twin Kohlers

    In my opinion, that is saying a lot for the oil that had been run in the engine during it's lifetime. Do you know what it is?
  7. Tecumseh HH100 Crossroads

    Too bad we are not closer. My HH100 looks like it has been run very little after being bored .010, oil clean, no ring groove at all, also no spark. Are ignition available? My brother tried to find ignition parts for one years ago. He was hoping I had what he needed, buy the only Tecumseh I ever owned I sold without trying to get it running a couple years before that. I think the one I have is going to become a Charger 12 with a Kohler, I'll have to keep it as I'ii never get my investment back, but could have a good unit to have for generator/air compressor/hjgh pressure pump, or maybe a sicle bar, (I can dream can't I?) or maybe my tiller. Ron A.
  8. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Today I finished cleaning front axle & spindles & reassembled. Steers much easier than my C141 & thinking about putting Charger front end under "C", maybe another day. Rest of the day spent pressing out hitch pin as I am almost sure drive may have to be split for repair. Took pictures but can't put them on yet. Hopefully.................................. Ron
  9. WTB 1980 C-85 Fender pan and seat

    I went to Menards and got a big box to ship something in. (Home supply store, appliance store)
  10. D-Series PTO Clutch Cup Washer Sequence

    Also, many bellville washers are used two sets cupped together & facing, for more spring strength. Do not know how they are supposed to be, but that would open it faster, but put more pressure on bearings.
  11. That switch has a "M" (mag. ground) terminal on it, battery run switch has "I" (ign. terminal to coil) #103990
  12. What have you done to your Wheel Horse today?

    Removed frozen tie rods from frozen spindles, frozen spindles from front axle, axle from tractor to check pivot pin (worn) & wheels from spindles. Removed blower housing & head from HH100 engine & found two head gaskets,(both blown) & one stripped bolt hole. Have not checked ign. sys. yet, if system is dead, probably candidate for someone else to build up for their project. I've got three "fresh" Kohlers to test, & that's a good thing to test the hydro with. A day cleaning & reassembly to make it portable tomorrow, & go from there.
  13. Raider 10

    Can't do pictures yet, still have not been able to pay my support yet. Think i'm going to let a bill or two go to pay shortly.. That Tecumseh is mag run & ground to kill, am I right? Ron A.
  14. Raider 10

    Went with a friend to pick up a B-12 A.C. today, and wound up with the B-12 and a charger 10 & short wheel-base snow blade. Don't know yet what I have yet, the blade is short all the angling parts, lever, push/pull angling rod, all the pin pull parts, so basically all i got was the backboard,springs angular segment & short wheel base frame. Tractor has been jua-kalied til it is almost not recognizable in places (especially electrically) mechanically I have to check out yet. Got to soak it down and free up steering, drawbar pin, & more then the fun starts trying to get the Tecumseh engine running, & then go to hydrostat, Been sitting a long time in the weather. Ron A.
  15. 18 Auto Clutch Bar?

    The main difference to me would be the clearance of the actuation bar under the hood. Also the shorter one would require less travel distance (total) so maybe that is part of the reasoning. Also, I like the double "eyes" on the shorter one for less chance of bending, & more stable. Ron A.
