  1. Finally found some time the last two weekends to reinstall the K301s I had rebuilt a few months ago. Everything hooked back up and tonight after work she went on her "maiden voyage" mowing lawn. Did a great job.
  2. Early in the week something went POP !! in my knee, so I've been hobbling around like an" Old Man"... by the way I am one. That 312 Hydro really made it easy on me mowing the lawn this week.
  3. I was thinking about making up an adapter for it so I can also use it as a back blade on the slot hitch.
  4. Finally had a little bit of a break at work so I had time to weld together the "faux" grader blade for my Simplicity/ Allis Chalmers tractors that I started last fall. Guess you could say I did some "Reverse Engineering" using some line drawings and photos of a blade and calculation of dimensions.
  5. I'm looking for the correct belt number/size for the transmission/ drive belt on my 1990 312 Hydro? Number I have found so far is 108501, 5/8"x 82". Thanks!!
  6. This is what I ended up with on the 2.0 version of the K161 air cleaner cover. Engraved the front of it with my pencil grinder and 1/8" ball cutter. I'll give you guys a little helpful hint, if you ever use a sanding disc, cutter, etc on aluminum put a little wax on the cutter. It will keep it from loading up. Tried polishing the cover up per 953nut suggestion but didn't like the finish... so back to Regal Red.
  7. That's usually their payment for welding jobs I do for them lol
  8. I just have to ask the guys in the polishing department. Actually just ran in though the glass bead cabinet, so ready for any type finish.....
  9. LOL , not missing any engine tin except for the the flywheel cover/belt cover. Hope to find one or make up one for the K161. You are right about all the changes a Engineering change involves at work..... for sure.
  10. Well, as they say in my trade, I did an "Engineering change" on the cover today. The cover should work out alot better, not causing problems with the hood grill area. Fortunately I know a guy that welds aluminum.
  11. Just wanted to say Thank you!! to the members of Red Square for all the Information, Brochures, Manuals and Photos that they have shared on this site. Last week I picked up a Wheel Horse 753, really had not much information on it but after looking at the available information here I now have alot.
  12. to From another Lawn Ranger owner.
  13. Doing a little more work on the 753 before the rain moves in. With alot of elbow grease and some solvent from work was able to now see the serial number on this little jewel. Hope to possibly see if the engine will fire up today. Found out some additional history on the tractor too from my friend. He bought it at an estate sale when his son was 7 yrs old. Had the engine running then after a small engine guy looked at it. That was approximately 10 yrs ago, his son is now 17.
