  1. I pulled the Kohler K161 7 hp engine on the 753 to have it rebuilt as part of the restoration. While waiting for the engine thought I might try a little "transplant" with a 6.5 hp Clone engine. . I'll have some more updates later on the "Franken-Horse" tractor. Currently working 7 days a week so not much time left over for tractor work......
  2. Thanks ! Guys for all the input and information. Knew I came to the right place with my question.
  3. Don't know for sure? That's why I thought I had better ask and be safe. Thanks! Very much Gary.
  4. I want to change the fluid in the transmission for the 1054. The manual from year 1964 recommendations are for SAE 40 transmission fluid. Is that still the case or are you folks using something else nowadays? Thank you! in advance. TIG
  5. 2 things I have to find for the 753 yet are the Starter Belt Cover and the Drive Belt Cover. I probably should post that in the Wanted section of the Classifieds.
  6. Finally had a chance to mount the 42" blade l refurbished on the 753. 753 is still a work in progress, but it will be a great addition to the work crew.
  7. 42" snow/dozer blade cleanup

    953 nut I think I will mount the blade on the 753 a friend gave me as a project last spring.
  8. 42" snow/dozer blade cleanup

    Tankman, you get a cookie ! You nailed it, Rustoleum rattle can, Regal Red. That's what I have used on all my projects.
  9. T-304 Stainless Steel Uncle Buck.
  10. Just a few things left now and I will be able to use the refurbished 42" blade. My Foreman likes it, he's a Wheel Horse guy too.
  11. 42" snow/dozer blade cleanup

    Took the photos in the shop where I work, the lighting is pretty bright.
  12. 42" snow/dozer blade cleanup

    I will be sure to include an update photo with it ready to work.
  13. Kinda wanted a 42" blade for one of the other Horses. Found one on the local CL site which basically needed just some TLC. Even came with the mounting bracket. Everything cleaned primed and painted ready to reassemble. Made up a new cutting edge.
  14. 1054 ride along

    https://youtu.be/b8SeNQBKJ2s Thought you folks might enjoy a ride along while I was plowing snow on Christmas day. Wishing all a Very Happy New Year !!
