  1. 1054 up and running

    Yes it is Glenn My "Favorite" snow plowing tractor.
  2. 1054 up and running

    Actually 953 I'm still using the old one right now temporarily. But am going to try replacing it with one of the suggested ones. So awesome having it back running again. Of my tractors, my "Favorite" work Horse. And the Tri Rib tires on front are working out great. Thanks! again for your suggestion on checking the idler pulley.
  3. 1054 up and running

    Yes! the 1054 is up and running again. The culprit was the little 3" drive belt idler pulley. It was almost stuck solid. The new idler pulley was installed today and the 1054 is back plowing snow.
  4. Snow plowing

    That's right Glenn.
  5. I really appreciate all of your input guys and links and suggestions for spring replacements. Was going to mention that as 953 suggested, I ordered and should have a new idler pulley here today. I believe it seized up the the other day when I tried to move the tractor. Should have the 1054 back on line for snow plowing duty today!! . Love that tractor.
  6. AC 912H to the rescue

    I believe my Boss said it was 1981 or 1982. The 900 series was made from 1979 to 1985
  7. AC 912H to the rescue

    With my Wheel Horse 1054 offline from snow plow duty temporarily I got out one of my "other" tractors. The Allis Chalmers 912H with the 42" snow thrower did a great job filling in.
  8. Thanks! for the info 953. I'll see what I can scrounge up in the way of a spring.
  9. Thanks! 953, that will help alot. I'm not sure what the gentleman had rigged up?
  10. Thanks!! Much guys for the input, I'll do some checking around. Will also look through some of the industrial supply catalogs at work and see what might be available. Thanks!! Again
  11. Wasn't sure where to post this, but I think I figured out the problem with the drive belt squealing. The clutch spring 1129 which from what I can see, also puts tension on the drive belt idler pulley number 36 in parts drawing. Apparently the gentleman who had the tractor before broke off part of the hook on the clutch spring and added a smaller spring for the hook. As a result it doesn't have the correct strength. Does anyone have any specifics on the spring size and length or where I can purchase one. Thank you!! in advance
  12. One of those days.......

    Well I figured out why the tractor died. The ground cable lug where it was connected broke. No ground, no run, imagine that..... A trip to the local farm store will find another starter belt. Also wondering if it has the correct length drive belt?
  13. One of those days.......

    I'll check out the idler pulley, also wondered about the tension spring? I see the guy had what looks to be the original spring with a small spring added on the end?
  14. Got home from work went to start the 1054 it would barely roll over. Battery was good ,so I cleaned all the connections on the starter. Success!! That was till the starter belt broke..... Got it started with pull rope. Yay !! Started plowing off the little bit of snow we had today and the drive belt started slipping/screeching on flat ground.... Almost done plowing and the tractor stopped like I turned the key off. Pushed the tractor up to the house.... I think Murphy kicked my butt today!! lol Oh well.....
  15. Big Kid play time

    When I got home from work today got the 1054 out to play in the snow. The ole Work Horse does a great job.
