  1. HY-2 broken spring! Any suggestions?

    10-4, just happen to have the correct size in carbide. I think if I go slow and keep cutting oil on it should be ok. Just might take a long time to get it done. Could be a prob if the broken leg starts spinning with the bit tho.
  2. '61 Rock shaft removal tips needed

    This 701 is fighting me - it just doesn’t want to let go of that rock shaft. I tried above suggestions & welded a bunch of lines @ 170A, saw no puffs of dust & wouldn’t budge. Then soaked all entry points two times a day with PB Blaster and tried the air hammer, no go. Heated it up with torch and put water on it, stil stuck. Guess last thing to try is fabricating a puller bracket to get it off.
  3. HY-2 broken spring! Any suggestions?

    Tried all the above last night. Man these things are wedged in there real good. Not sure what’s lefts to try, other than putting it on a drill press and carefully trying to drill out the broken off legs. I’d image I would have to go very slow so the bit don’t slip off the legs and start drill through the pump at an angle???
  4. HY-2 broken spring! Any suggestions?

    I’ll try this in the meantime
  5. Hope I posted this in the right section... Got my new HY-2 spring in the mail but I cannot get the old broken legs out of the pump to save my life. They are broken off about 1/16 inside the holes so there’s nothing to grab ahold of and pull. What successful things have you guys done to get your broken springs out? They are sitting in there pretty good and tight, unsuccessfully tried a strong magnet.

    Well ain’t that the coolest little mower. This would be awesome to completely restore and use every weekend! Wish I was closer! Gonna add one of these to my WH bucket list. GL!
  7. '61 Rock shaft removal tips needed

    It's a 170 amp, I'll try first it over the battery method, which honestly does scare me a little. I've had batteries explode before and it isn't fun.neither is the mess it makes. Thanks for the awesome suggestion @gwest_ca and @953 nut.

  9. '61 Rock shaft removal tips needed

    Wow this is new to me, makes me a little nervous. The 701 battery is brand new, is it big enough to get the job done?
  10. NOS Parts

    I assume this is still active? I don’t see a pic of the tach - only the packaging - is it the new style with “toro” on the face or the okder style with “SW” on the face?
  11. I'm trying to remove my original 701 rock shaft and this is become a battle of wills between myself and the 701. Took me three days just to get the roll pin out. But rock shaft isn't budging. Been soaking in penetrating oil - no luck. Any tips for getting it out without destroying the thing? Do I just hammer on the shaft that goes out the right side of the frame to break it free? Do I need to take apart anything else other than the roll pin in order to slide it out?
  12. Looking for the large drive-belt guard, part #5254 off the SR-64 Speed Reducer kit. It looks like a normal drive belt cover but has a kick out the bottom in the rear for the larger diameter drive pulley that comes in the SR-64 Speed Reducer kit.
  13. Looking for the large drive-belt guard, part #4202 off of a 502, 552, 701, or 702. Doesn’t need to be pretty, just straight.
  14. Perfect Photos, showed me exactly what I needed to see. Thanks a bunch
  15. @Lane Ranger, on the engine side my 701 only has a double pulley (one for the drive & other for the mower deck), I can purchase a triple pulley but in looking at it more closely it appears there is no way to run a mower deck and the HY-2 at the same time as it looks like it runs off the mower pulley — is that correct? I would love to be able to leave the mower deck hooked up and use the Hydro to lift it, but also run any implements that I attach on the rear without having to disconnect the deck as sometimes it isn't necessary to remove the deck - what is your experience?
