  2. Matt's Hydro pedal?

    We just "talked" through the message feature of this board. I think he has an email address on his profile page. Edit: his email address is in his pedal ad on this forum: Or you can email me at mattdarling02@hotmail.com.
  3. Matt's Hydro pedal?

    I chatted with him in late June - early July, but I have not heard from him since early September. I hope he is OK.
  4. 48"-520 Deck and Dozer Blade

    I just placed an add for a NOS dozer blade in the For Sale section. I also have a 48" deck but it isn't as nice as the plow. It is in good shapen but not "like new". Where are you located on the East coast?

    UNused Wheel Horse 48" dozer blade.
  6. Front tires for snow plowing

    I use the same tires on the front for snow plowing. The front used to slide all over the place when the blade was angled.
  7. Return to neutral on an Eaton 11 (520H)

    The column mounted motion control arm moves freely and does not bind in any direction. It is just the part with the (sort of) rounded triangle hole that moves the bearing doesn't push the bearing all the way back to neutral from reverse. I will remove the battery like you suggest, and put some penetrating oil on the pivot points. (and the tower cover plate too)
  8. I have a 520H that does not go back to neutral from reverse when pressing the brake pedal. I need to manually move the motion lever back to neutral. It works fine when going forward and pressing the brake pedal. I have the Eaton 11 manual and I did the neutral adjustment on page 13. I raised the rearend and moved the cam so that the wheels do not spin when the motion lever is in neutral. When driving the tractor in either direction, it stops when moving the motion control by hand. With the tunnel cover off it looks like the levers/cams that move the control back towards neutral do not immediately engage when the transmission is in reverse. This leaves the motion control arm still in reverse when the brake is applied. Is there some adjustment in there? I do not see anything in the Eaton or Owners manuals about the brake return to neutral linkage.

    The vise grips worked for me, at least temporally. I was able to mow the lawn without having to hold the throttle up.

    MalMac: I removed the block and cleaned the dried grease. Now i can pump fres grease in. The zirc connector did not have hex area to get a wrench on so I assume it is not threaded. WVHillbilly520H: thanks for the pointers. I did get those manuals and i have been browsing them. I had found the voltage regulator. I read 14 volts at the battery when the motor is running. I will look at the meter after i check out the wiring.

    Thank you, I'll try the vice grips first and then the bolt if needed. Another little problem is the grease zirk in the block on the lower steering shaft. I can't pump grease into it. It appears to be a pressfit and not threaded. What is the best way to remove it? Should I remove the block and drive it out from the inside?

    I just brought home a 1995 520H. I think it is in good shape. The wiring looks a little iffy - there are a lot of spliced wires. The main thing I have a question about right now is the throttle lever. When I move it all the way up (higher RPMs) it goes back to the middle. It stays in position in the middle or at the low end. Is there a tension adjustment on the pivot on the lever ? The volt meter always reads zero and the gas gauge always says full even though I know the tank is mostly empty. I can live with those things for a while. thanks PS it is hard to type after spilling a beer on the keyboard. I have to use cut and paste for few letters.

    Thanks for the warm welcome. I do not actually have the tractor at my house yet, just the attachments. I am making some room ( I do not like to leave equipment outside). The only pictures are from inside a dark shed. I'll get some better pictures this weekend. I know this machine runs well and has been garaged so it shouldn't need any major work. I did drive it last fall when I put it into the shed at my mom's place. Yup, I'm 60 and still store stuff at my mom's.

    Howdy, I have just acquired a 1995 520H with snow plow and a 48" mower deck and a 42" rear discharge mower deck. I have several IH cub cadets, 2 125's, a 127 and a 147 plus mower decks and snow throwers. I'll probably sell some of the cub cadets, how many tractors can a guy have at one time? I have down loaded manuals for the 520H and attachments so thank you to whoever made them available.
