  1. Inverting Mower Blades

    I mow several acres and use this product and I must tell you that it really works. Just clean your deck well ( I use a wire wheel) then just spray it on, blades too. Did it last year and still no build-up or sticking, set or dry, tall or short. I got it at Bailey's Outdoors.com.
  2. rebuilding a fuel pump

    Can someone please tell me if it's possible to rebuild a fuel pump, the part # of kit and is it worth the hassle? It's off a 16hsp. kohler. Thinking of going to an electric pump.
  3. 42in SD double spindle pulley

    Top pulley is 4.5 inches, bottom one is 3.5 inches, 5/8 in arbor hole with no key way
  4. Busting a tire off the bead

    Lay the tire on the ground, after you remove the valve stem, get a 4ft 2x6 and lay it on the tire at the edge of your rim, then drive your car or truck up on it. If it doesn't pop the bead then rotate the tire and try again. I've used this method on car tires also for years with great results.
  5. Would you happen to have a couple of spindle pulleys for a 42inRD deck?

  6. Mid mount grader blade

    I have one, like new, in IA. 180+ miles south of Chicago, PM me if interrested
  7. Wheelhorse, I have a problem....

    Thanks for the thoughts guys, will check everything you mentioned. It is a single cylinder 16hsp, but I did put the chevy points on it, that may be where the problem lies, will silicone around the cover and see if that helps. Thanks again.
  8. While pushing snow, the wet and heavy kind, whenever I had a lot out front, my 161 would just shutdown. It would come back to life on it's own and run fine until the next time. Any thoughts on this?
  9. Broken Off Grease Zirk On Mower Spindle

    Sorry to sound dumb, but wtf is this?
  10. mowing and how do I aim?

    Hello, Finally a topic that I have some knowledge about, I mow about 7 acres with my 48in deck on ether one of my mowers and beleive me I get alot of seat time. Anyway I use the antiscalp rollers as a guide, just put them where the outside edge is riding at the outside of last pass, seems to give me the best cut, just my two cents.
  11. Points gap

    Thanks so much Bob and boomer, I hadn't thought of it like that, clears it up for me.
  12. Points gap

    Hello everyone, Not sure if this has been covered before but my question is, to advance the timing do you decrease the gap or increase it?

    Thank you Skip, good to know, really helps ease my mind.
  14. .20 under crank

    Thanks Bob, good to hear, may be the way I go on this one. Where did you get your rod by the way?
