  1. I like it! I've done some really dumb stuff with mine. Never had any problems. Just lucky. Does anyone know of some one that broke their case on the tow hitch?
  2. For Sale; One Set, used, 50-lb John Deere plastic-shell rear wheel weights. Installs on each rear wheel to provide extra traction and stability. The outer shell is molded of tough polyethylene plastic filled with a heavy granular material that contains a high iron percentage. A bonding substance is added to hold the material together so that it will remain intact, even if the shell is damaged. Overall width of the tractor will be increased by approximately 2 in. (51 mm) when weights are installed. These weights only stick out from the rim 1 inch. Removed from a 416-8 wheel horse 23x9.5-12 I can drop off at Fastenal if buyer makes shipping arrangements.
  3. OEM fuel pump, or Aftermarket ?

    I've used both with no issues. The after market one is running 2 years now. I've also installed electric, but only the Mr. Gasket brand. works good too.
  4. Grumpy, Jealous and a little irritated

    This has been going on for years, it's just a bit easyer to know it now. There are folks the turn spending money this way, or make their living. I had a guy call me and offer two machines for just above scrap price. Just wanted them taken away, he did not care what I wanted to with them. Like Andy said, be patient and diligent!
  5. Front tire replacement.

    If you got the beads broke your golden. After breaking the beads, I take a utility razor knife and cut just above the bead (about an inch) and remove the tread part of the tire. Then I lube up those remaining bead rings with soapy dishwashing mix and roll the beads up off the rim, keeping the part of the bead ring on the rim in the center groove while popping the other side up off the rim.
  6. Big Show Tractor Winners

    All smiles! That is so great. Thanks for the pics pullstart!
  7. I had to leave Friday. I may have missed a post but anyone know who were the tractor winners? thanks
  8. Kohler 181 runs strong but pops alittle

    Replacing worn points, you can't go wrong. It can be the difference. Recheck that main jet screw to make sure end is not damaged. Sometimes people screw them in to tight and cause deformation.
  9. Kohler 181 runs strong but pops alittle

    Looks pretty dark, when you screw the main jet in then out is there a difference?
  10. Good Running 310-8 with 42RD Deck. Charging circuit not working. Starts good if left on a trickle. Deck is rough looking but runs fine. I mowed the grass in the first picture. Big Show Special Price $300 I plan on being there on Friday around 11. Joe Sale Pending
  11. Seen this on CL. I like all the owner add on's ! Especially the rear view mirror.
  12. Picked up this 310 the other day and was doing some PM's. Checked under the motor tins and wow, this one was pretty bad!
  13. I've never had to get a hotel room to buy a tractor. In my mind if you really want them, $1500 bucks. top dollar. keep in mind you haven't seem those machines in person. 953's advice is pretty sound.
  14. Finally ... My New Shed for the Horses

    Nice shed sailor! HOA's and Zoning can be a real problem. I tried to put up a 24x40 pole building only to find out they changed my zoning from agricultural to residential II, Zoning board said "no dice"! 12x20 is as big as you can go......if approved. I lived here 34 years, not much changed. I was so mad I didn't do anything, bought some bigger tarps! they will probably complain the tarps are the wrong color. These are the same people that think meat comes from a super market!
  15. looking to purchase 312-8 trasaxle dipstick
