  1. What Are You Listening To?

    Just heard that Pat DiNizio from the Smithereens passed away last night. One of the few bands from the '80's I could listen to for very long. R.I.P.

    BINGO! http://pdfpiw.uspto.gov/.piw?Docid=02149027&homeurl=http%3A%2F%2Fpatft.uspto.gov%2Fnetacgi%2Fnph-Parser%3FSect1%3DPTO1%26Sect2%3DHITOFF%26d%3DPALL%26p%3D1%26u%3D%252Fnetahtml%252FPTO%252Fsrchnum.htm%26r%3D1%26f%3DG%26l%3D50%26s1%3D2149027.PN.%26OS%3DPN%2F2149027%26RS%3DPN%2F2149027&PageNum=&Rtype=&SectionNum=&idkey=NONE&Input=View+first+page And here (there's a reference in this document to another patent filed in 1972 by Briggs & Stratton): https://www.google.com/patents/US2149027?dq=2149027&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjFqNia24TYAhVHQyYKHfRnC3QQ6AEIJzAA
  3. Spark plug cover

    My eyes may be playing tricks on me, but is there something written/stamped into the top of that cover piece?

  5. 310-8 Idle Problem

    Paul's absolutely right about that top speed, it's way too high, you'll damage your engine very quickly if you keep running it like that. Can you get some photos of your throttle cable hookup? -------- EDIT: You might find something useful here. Be aware this is a very old thread that was damaged a bit in a software change that happened on this forum several years ago, but most of the important information is still there:

    Dude, your tractor's on fire! Oh wait... never mind.
  7. What Are You Listening To?

    My daughter has been battling a knee injury from soccer since late September, and we've been battling our beloved (NOT) insurance company for about a month. We finally got some very good news yesterday from a highly respected orthopedic surgeon, who really explained her injury in detail and told us that she's healing just fine and just needs to get more aggressive with her physical therapy. She can do that. All of which reminds me of these two tunes, just kind of very loosely related to her situation, from Rory Gallagher's last studio album sessions. I was fortunate enough to see Rory play live several times before he passed away, and it was always a treat. RIP, gentle sir.
  8. I'm Baaack

    Beautiful, Ed! It's a different world up there, isn't it?
  9. Wheel horse plethora

    Sorry to hear all this Dave, and hope everything works out for you. Opening on Saturday mornings sounds like an excellent idea for you if you can make it work. I don't personally buy enough Wheel Horse stuff to make it a regular stop, but I'm hoping others here will be able to help you out. Are you going to sell your non-WH items also? And are you still going to sell on eBay?
  10. Loss of power

    Kohler K301, it's in the tags for this thread.
  11. Hey guys, One of the moderators at another forum I visit recently posted some information about a recall of 37 million Kidde fire extinguishers. I had no idea, and thought I'd pass it along. Here's a link to information on the Kidde web site: https://inmarmarketaction.com/kidde/ The recall includes models dating back to 1973, and it sounds like they're very serious about making this right. I have one older Kidde extinguisher, it's not totally clear whether it's on the list or not, but it's certainly worth a phone call to them to find out.
  12. C-120 upper steering shaft

    All in good fun, other Ed. My very first Wheel Horse had a custom-built half-a-spoke-no-outer-rim steering wheel, at least after I "fixed" it.
  13. You mean they don't ooze grease out the zerk when they're filled? Do you have a source for these wheels?
  14. C-120 upper steering shaft

    It sits in the seat.
  15. As long as we're on the subject...
