  1. Tractor to run tiller

    Manuals are better for tilling. Hydros get pushed by tiller
  2. 44” 2 Stage skipping in heavy snow

    What they said!!!! A worn chain will be the down fall of most chain driven machines. It’s prone to breaking and destroying anything in its path. It wears down the drive teeth prematurely. And it wastes energy. I change mine every other year at a minimum. Also after I get done using it EVERYTIME. I leave it running at idle with blower engaged. Spray chain w some wd-40 or similar product. Then I drip some chainsaw bar oil on it. Use gear lube, motor oil, etc. point is it keeps the moisture away and ready for next storm.
  3. Need opinions on rear discharge deck?

    You’d be a fool to pass on that deck. I removed the recycler insert from mine. Weighs 1/2 as much now. As long as the deck isn’t cracked or rotted through that’s a steel!!!! Used spindles are easy to come by should you need one. I have a bucket full of deck parts. Hope I never need to use them. I prefer an RD over SD. You can get close to the edges of your lawn on either side. Scrub mine annually down to bare metal. Then spray it down w WD-40. Stand it up for the winter in the shed. No rust to speak of and it’s 24 years old.
  4. Your 312 will run a 48 but it’s really going to struggle. 42” would be fine especially in the deeper stuff. Step up to a c-160 and the grass will really fly. Welcome me to the WH world!
  5. 520 xi

    I have one w a loader at 1200 hours and going strong. She’s ugly! It’ll run circles around the classics all day long. Accessories are hard to come by.

  9. “Cheater” Cam

    This is the last “cheater” cam sold by David Kirk 2-3 years ago. Never used it. He explains its use in his Killer Kohler write up. Essentially it’s said to add alittle more torque to any big block Kohler 10-16hp. A few members on this site have used them w solid results. I chose to go w a relatively stock rebuild. You can find the Killer Kohler writeup here http://www.kirkengines.com/ $100
  10. 44in 2 Stage Blower parts questions

    Several guys have replaced the bushings on left and right side of auger w greasable carrier bearings. The chain tensioning block can easily be replaced w a small chain sprocket. When I get done using mine I soak the chain w wd40 followed by some chainsaw bar oil, motor oil or whatever I have on hand. Don’t hesitate to change the chain. A worn stretched chain will destroy your sprockets I change it it out every other year. They’re cheap

  12. Tiller

  13. Bosch blue coil

    Have a new unused Bosch blue coil and David Kirk points saver kit. Originally purchased for a k-341 build that never happened. The coil oil alone is $65 you’re getting the points saver as a bonus. They’re suppose to give a hotter spark and take the load off your points. Here are the instructions
  14. Don’t know how I missed this? Very well done. Going to have to add it to “the list”
  15. C195 3 point question
