  1. One of my high school buddys dad had 3 of them. He was 4'8" tall and he loved them! As far as i know he still uses them to this day. Lots of trees and flower gardens to go around in there yard, so it worked great for all those tight spots. I did try one out and it was weired to drive. To back up you spin the wheel 180deg.
  2. Thank you!!!! I might have had to go buy a dart board to hang the pic on.
  3. JB weld has been in my tool box for years! The stuff has so many uses and works on many things from copper iron steel alluminum and plastic. Great stuff !!
  4. Nice loooking 97 520! Wish i still had mine.
  5. Nice looking batt holder. Improvment from factory for sure
  6. Battery hold down
  7. Did this in my shed and hooked the rope to the hitch of the tractor to do all the lifting. It helps to have a helper to push the blower on the shelf as you back up to lower the blower. Should be able to pick one at any hardware. Blower is around 150 I believe
  8. Have you checked to see if the center spinal is moving on the deck? I have seen the 42 sd decks brake the metal around were they bolt many times. They don't have the stiffing plate the 48" decks have. I have prepared 3 of these decks for this issue in the past. Grass rots the metal around the spindle and makes a week spot. Then the deck cracks around the spinal and you can get scalp marks in the grass. Ebay sells weld plates for this issue.
  9. Build a loft and pick it a block and tackle setup and you should be fine
  10. What was your crankshaft end play measurement? If its too tight it could cause the issue. What was all done in the rebuild?
  11. I have some that will only start with full throttle and some that will only start at 1/2 to full throttle when cold. Noticed that each tractor has its own way it likes to start. Just its qwerks
  12. With the tractor off the ground on jack stands or the wheels off you can put a socket on a clutched drill ( not a impact!!!!!) and turn the pulley to charge the pump and test its operation. Once it is charged you can move the pump pulley by hand and get a reaction out of it. Put the drill in reverse for the correct direction.
  13. Done a lot of them, not fun at all. Did you get a EOM one or aftermarket. Found the EOM ones are cheaper then the aftermarket ones. Also found bad coils that test good for these to drive you nuts also. I do feel your pain on the crank sensor though.
  14. I quit watching when Earnhart passed. Now i only watch the datona 500. I went to both races in Mi for over 20 years and it got so crowded it got to be no fun anymore. Now its died to the point when I started to go in the early 80s I think they need to bring back the Winston Cup rules and name.
  15. Almost bought one last year and decided on the acreage rake instead. Now I might make one this summer after the new horse barn is built. I have been told that they take a long time to decay and that they are harmful to the grass. Not sure if its all true or not but i have noticed that the leaves are hard and stiff just like the wood. Been trying to grow grass in a new 1acer section of front yard last year that was thick woods and now i have 3 oak trees that I never had to pick up before in the fall
