  1. Snowblade pin...

    I see what your showing... Per the picture... 4 has fallen out. 6 is sheared off both sides of 4. What my last question was how is 5 held in? Without the pin (4) pressing onto it, is it likely to fall off and possible get lost? Or is it hooked on another piece?
  2. Snowblade pin...

    I just noticed there's a cotter pin that should go through it. It sheared off both sides. I'm gonna have a friend help me get it replaced but one other question... How easy does the spring come out? Is it locked in any which way? I'll need a new cotter pin definately but would like to know if I should get a new spring while I'm at it.
  3. Snowblade pin...

    I just recently got/took my tractor (1057 with Harbor Freight clone) back. Well, the lights are good but the pin in the center of the plow came out. :banghead:The one that locks it center, left or right. How do I go about getting it back in? It doesn't look like there's any threads or anything to connect to it to get it back in place... Am I missing something? Sorry I don't have a pic. There's about 8" of snow around it right now. :banghead:
  4. Does anyone know anything about John Deere Snowmobiles? I know, I know, it's a Deere I've been wanting one for a while now and I recently found one on craigslist. The other person is asking $400. The only things I wonder about is there anything I should really check out before I buy. He said I can here it run (though it might need a little starter fluid). A couple things I question is the wording on the ads. On one, he says nice track, original motor. The other he says it has a 600cc Kawasaki motor and new track. I'm not looking for a brand new sled but something I would like to play around with and get the hang of before I shell out a couple grand for a newer one. Anythings I need to look at when I go to get it? Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you
  5. Questions to ponder...

    I will say the Craftsman tool lifetime warranty is good for life. I broke a 3/4 socket a few months ago that my grandfather bought (I don't know when but a long time ago) and it was replaced no questions asked. No need for a receipt or anything. I'll definately stick with Craftsman hand tools after that.
  6. How much fluid???

    I have a set of Dual Ags on it right now. I'm thinking with all four filled, it should equate to about 150lbs. Where as the 23X10.5-12's would equal about 116lbs. But with the ags, I'm planning on using the all summer each summer but for the 23X10.5-12's I'd only be using in the winter.... Decisions decisions....
  7. I've been thinking of filling some of my tractor tires with fluid to add weight and wasn't sure of how much fluid I would need to get. I'm not wanting to get a 55gallon drum but individual gallons would be a lot to fill some/all of what I have. The sizes are 13X5-6" 13X6.5-8" 6X12" 23X10.5-12" 4.8X4-8" I have multiple tires of most sizes but am just wondering how much for each. I haven't decided if I'll fill all of them but just as a reference if I would fill all of them. Also, would RV antifreeze(-50F) of windshield washer (-20F) fluid be better in terms of weight vs toxicity vs whatever else. I know they both weigh about the same but has anyone had issues with either/or. Also, 4 of the 6X12-12" are ags whereas the rest are turf style. And the 23X10.5-12" have chains on them. I'm debating on using them again this winter or using the 6X12 ags for plowing this winter. I don't know if that would make a difference or not.
  8. Speed up Your Horse

    Another Q, Is there a better brand of tires to use VS others that don't handle speeds too well? My front wheels are both leaking. I'm planning on tomorrow getting tubes for them but are there any tires specifically to stay away from? What are on it are Load Star trailor tires 4.8x4x8. I'm thinking of getting new tires for both of my tractors.
  9. Questions to ponder...

    Here's a few.... If you are asked to tell the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth and your the main witness, what if you say "no"? Why doesn't McDonald's sell hotdogs? At a movie theater which arm rest is yours? What's the difference between normal ketchup and fancy ketchup? If a transvesite goes missing, would youu put their face on a carton of Half and Half? If ghosts can walk through walls and glide down stairs, why don't they fall through the floor? Is it legal to travel down a road in reverse, as long as your following the direction of the traffic? How can something be "new" and "improved"? if it's new, what was it improving on? Do siamese twins pay for one ticket or two tickets when they go to movies and concerts? Do prison buses have emergency exits? When lightning strikes the ocean why don't all the fish die? Do the minutes on the movie boxes include the previews, credits, and special features, or just the movie itself? What is the stage of a reptile when it has eggs in it but they haven't been laid. Are they pregnant? How come lemon washing up liquid contains real lemons, but lemon juice contains artificial flavorings. Do you wake up or open your eyes first? Did Noah have woodpeckers on the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? How do you handcuff a one-armed man? Why are all of the Harry Potter spells in Latin if they're English? OK, That's enough for now. Enough to keep your minds going...
  10. I just finally read through all this & I was wondering, what grade bolts did you use for the lug bolts in the back? I'm planning on converting my 1057 to lug nuts/bolts in the rear but am questioning if I should use Grade 8 or 5. Mine will be a little longer to reverse a wheel and set duallys on it. So I'm thinking grade 8 but it'll be about 2X's as much. And, do you have any problems when you tighten the lug nuts down on it with the studs backing through? Or use a bit of loctite to hold them in place?
  11. Blades???

    Here's another pic of it...
  12. Blades???

    This may be a stupid question but I've noticed people talking about snowblades, grader blades, dozer blades, ect. What is the difference between each kind? I have a 42" blade. What kind is it, I used it for plowing this winter and am planning on using it for moving dirt/gravel this summer when I build an extension on my shed for my toys. But I don't want to mess it up anymore than it is. It's already bent a little from the previous owner (right side in the picture). It's a model/serial 42400 I'm not sure which one it is (snow/dirt/dozer) and don't know if it's the wrong kind, will I mess it up. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.
  13. I'm thinking of putting 6X12's on the front and rear of my DB. I haven't decided for sure though. If I go that route, I'll want to strip and paint all my wheels to match both the Bradley and my 2 horses. I'm thinking silver/grey...
  14. Speed up Your Horse

    Has anyone had issues (after speeding their tractor up) with the key in the transmission pulley loosening up? Luckily I have 2 5" pulleys for the tranny but they both (after a little bit of time) come loose. I'm thinking of using locktite on it but want to be able to get it off if need be. The aluminum one I have on right now is not looking too good. Is there another way to tighten it up a bit (so it doesn't fall off) without locktiting it?
  15. Speed up Your Horse

    I did it all after I read these posts. Used surpluscenter to get the pulley. The info definately helped but I wasn't able to get the calculator thing to work right. Because I put a different motor in it & it not being in the origional place, I don't have a belt guard. (I know, dumb idea). I'm hoping this summer, after I add an extension to my shed, to cut down the existing beltguard and mod it to work with the new motor. but I'll need to figure a way to set things up to work with the origional 5" and the newer 7.75". I'm going to use the origional 5" in winter when I have the plow on it. Or, give it a year or two and I'll leave my 1057 regular and change things on my David Bradley. I'm always changing something on my "toys".
