  1. Snowblower install pics

    This didn't come with a spring and I found a #150 punching bag spring on Amazon for $8. We jacked the blower higher than the lifter bar would lift, Attached the spring to the eye-bolt, that had the nyloc nut backed nearly all the out Attach the bell of a 1/4" shackle through the other end of the spring, and the pin through an existing hole in the frame just in font of the floor board, Tighten nyloc nut to apply tension to the spring Lower jack and enjoy your lighter blower (black is rust-converting primer I-H Red tractor paint is going on tomorrow)

    Bust the paint out for sure

    I don't see how this will adjust, it's does not look to be a slot to slide the idler in to add or release tension in the chain. . To adjust, loosen the bolt that secures idler sprocket to left side housing. (Fig. 28). 3. Slide idler sprocket in adjustment slot until chain is snug, but not tight (Fig. 28). 4. Tighten idler sprocket securely
  5. Clevis Hitch, Rockshaft kit

    still available? Would you ever travel north to Fredericksburg to deliver and talk shop?

    The scraper is on the ground but the shoes and wingtips are floating. Should the machine level out by riding on the shoes? I have a well paved driveway, and a typical sidewalk to clear.

    yes thats it. thanks guys!

    ?? I can see how if i flip the wings it would make the last 2" bend parallel with the frame, to bring more snow into the auger, rather than now they're close to 90* out pushing snow away... there are 3 holes at the top edge you don't mean to bolt them up there like a gull-wing do you? or just raise them up a touch so the bottom edge matches up? I see videos of guys skipping them all together. What do you think of nix-ing them?

    Yes it was repainted, and your points are great why would it need repaint if it's as clean as they said. It's also a brighter red than the 310,the original WH red looks nearly maroon in comparison. Wings are on backwards? Left to Right? Has anyone made a thread about electric chute modifications? Tried searching but didn''t find what I was looking for.

    nice thanks!
  11. Craigslist score! I've been looking for one and this showed up less than 5 miles from home. It's been used maybe a half dozen times, only twice by the previous owner. Its complete with the flag and chute handle and 2 belts. Is got nice pan no dents and good life in the shoes.
  12. Installing a 48" plow

    I use 3- 3/8" shackles, 1 on the plow where the pin of the shackle is in the hole & bell facing up, 1 on the lifter where the pin of the shackle is in the hole & bell facing down, and 1 connecting them together
  13. Pimped my Plow

    PaulC, Purely accidental while watching a ford tractor plow, I see what I'm trying to do. Now that one's hydraulic controlled as I'd like to use linear actuator .Looks like the ford plow is an A-Frame type mount to the rear axle and a lift cylinder in front of the hood.
  14. Pimped my Plow

    Wonderful idea! My idea was to put the solenoid about where your cam-traption is but your idea is less electrical, and only move the blade when fully raised. PaulC, I want to put this out front because I watch my 60+ father roll around under trying to hitch the lifter mechanism, and he hooks it up silly & it binds up or forgets a cottter pin and falls off the lifter cam. I thought this being visible, out front it would eliminate that.as well as I said earlier if designed right the front atach-a-matic front hitch / lift system will keep the blade from wondering left or right when windrowing.

    Yes I was afraid a standard or heavy duty actuator would fail when pushing heavy wet snow on the unsupported side. My belief (and call me out if I'm wrong) is electric linear actuators are stronger or more reliable pushing and in compression rather than pulling in tension? PaulC, if you had a 2nd actuator on the other side wired in opposite polarity, to push out when the first retracts in, I wonder if that would remedy your problem, then you have one in compression weather you tilt left or right. My plan, would have to be some progressive circuitry to pull the pin first using the solenoid, before allowing the windrow actuator to move. I'm also looking at stronger linear actuators. Not the Amazon or ebay 300# units but, 1350# ones from Northern Tool (http://www.northerntool.com/shop/tools/product_200622241_200622241) So with the rule or guide earlier of no to tension yes to compression. To lift the plow, I figure to mount a lifting actuator atop the front hitch extending vertically up in front of the hood with some form of strapping going from the A frame of the plow in front if the steering axle up over the top of the front hitch & actuator and back down to the other side of the A-frame. Then the plows A-frame could be lifted as high as all the way to the bottom of the front axle. This front lifter actuator would eliminate the lifter bar / down pressure hook up in the middle of the tractor, and if designed right the front atach-a-matic front hitch / lift system will keep the blade from wondering left or right.
