  1. Soggy Sunday Agenda

    Just think how lucky you would have been if the BLOWER found the chain for you..... Even your tractor is tired of the snow. I feel for you guys, I had enough about 2 months ago. Hoping you guys get a heat blast soon....
  2. Snow shot Sunday!

    YOU GUYS KEEP IT THERE WITH YOU!!!!!! I'm breaking out in hives just looking at the pictures, got the shakes.... I took my blower off the 16 hp., still have a blade on the 10 hp. but I'M DONE with the snow. We got a tiny bit of freezing rain last night but no white stuff, god all mighty enough already..... Nice pictures though... I hope you guys get a blast of 60 degree air to make it all go away.
  3. Wow Eric, That thing fought you that bad??? How much rust was on the shaft to hold it like that? Just asking for my own info so I know what to anticipate... Chris
  4. ID? Or is it home made? Curious parts...

    Holy Fabricators Batman, That thing is a THING OF BEAUTY, Transmission is definitely truck type stuff with band brake. The plow has parallel arms, angle capacity, hydraulics for gods sake.... wow... (Sorry for "drooling" on the key board guys, I just love this kind of stuff) Mikey, Thank you for the post.... Chris
  5. 520-HC getting a workout

    referring to the video your wife took.. They both look capable but the way yours was throwing snow was wild, plus you're were you were moving into it at a good clip.
  6. 520-HC getting a workout

    that thing is a snow eating MONSTER....
  7. Thanks for the pictures gentlemen, and the reports. We've missed this for once. The last storm we had was the wetter heavy stuff and the "blower clogging" thing ain't no fun at all. Hope you guys all manage ok and the power stays on for you. Warmer weather is coming...
  8. 518-H restoration

    Came out excellent. Paint looks amazing.
  9. How did you do that ? Band saw?
  10. I think we might be on the outskirts of this one. You guys east of us can have this one, More power to you. I'm starting to break out in hives when they mention more snow
  11. I'm not certain Eric but I think maybe Craig is trying to make fun of you.... I mean, its so uncommon to see that here, perhaps you should suggest that Craig do some Late season ice fishing on the Hudson river, seeing as he is so close to it

    Randy, your restoration looks excellent. My brother had one like that when they first came out. In regards to the fix for the fuel tank , the thought was, the tank has already be repaired a couple times, which can harden the nearby metal, if a weld breaks, its usually just off the weld. Fuel bowl screens aren't that fine as compared to paper filters, with todays gas, doesn't hurt to be on the safe side. We had fuel bowls on the farm tractors, always got a small gas bath when servicing them and the concern about losing the bowl gasket and the screen was always prevalent when in the middle of a hay field. Plus if it does get repaired again, there is the thought of having to tighten the bowl assembly another quarter or half turn to get the fuel outlet end aligned and tweeking the repair again. Plus the one that's on the tractor in the picture looks like the shut-off valve isn't in too good a shape. Ultimately Jeff will figure out what he needs to do. And this forum allows me to look at all the different fixes. Like I said at the top your tractor looks absolutely stellar, brought me back 50 years just looking at it.
  13. When I dropped the knife, the "motor" end of the knife fell partially into a container of 90 wt gear oil, the oil went into the motor of the knife via the ventilation grille on the back. I cleaned it the best I could but the knife never had the speed that it originally had, plus you could smell the residual gear oil burning off the armature when it ran, really bad. There was no way I could not accept blame for the faulty knife so Mom told me to keep the knife, bless her departed soul. I do appreciate your suggestion as to avoiding the situation though very much, too bad I didn't know of you way back then.
  14. "Shaping Foam for seat" Electric carving knife works good too, (Notice picture of custom truck I built long time ago) (Especially the knife your family would use for Thanksgiving carving) I went 3 years without telling anybody. I'd just sit and think about it when we were having turkey... until I finally dropped the knife once into gear oil by mistake, then I had to come clean...still have the knife... Your honey is AWESOME..... Thanks for the electric schematic also. Progress is looking great, That much snow looks scary... Keep posting Eric!! Chris
  15. Great forum!

    Very nice looking machine, your upgrades look awesome on it. Welcome to the forum, I'll warn ya like I do all the new members, they're nasty, mean , no help people on this thing, I was so taken back by it that I became a supporter because I couldn't believe how mean they are. Even after all this I'm still in shock, so be forewarned. Look around at all the different posts and you'll see for yourself,. They won't help ya with anything, no information, nothing, (my fingers get tired every time I do this...) Looking forward to the progress on your machine. Chris
