    Thanks for not informing us before the auction Jim. I'm also trying to downsize.
  2. Please do not run the blower with this arrangement. The two pulley tensioner system is there to keep a constant tension on the belt. The solid system you have could overload the bearings in the PTO and the blower. V belts are designed to make contact on the sides of the belt, not on the bottom. In addition of the possibility of destroying the belt and the bearings, the blower will only be running at about half of its design RPM with the belt on this smaller diameter drive pulley. The blower will not throw snow very well at this lower RPM.
  3. That is a great buy...congrats. Others will be here to help with belt length, but I like to use a longer belt to get a measurement for the belt needed. I buy mine locally from TSC where they can be returned if the belt and sleeve are kept clean. The deck belt will be longer than the blower. The blower is missing one of the tensioning pulleys. It appears the forked plate on the deck mounting rod may not be hooked on the rod. This may be causing the deck to ride too far forward. The flag does not appear to be broken. I think the collar on the shaft is just a spacer to adjust the lift rod length.
  4. DOH!

    I heard about a guy that ran out of gas while mowing with his 312H. He walked to the barn, got his gas can, and filled the tank. The tractor would not even try to turn over when he attempted to start it. I heard he spent about an hour checking battery voltage, wiring, and safety switches. The story is, when he ran out of gas, he never disengaged the PTO.
  5. Snow plow question

    There is an extension to adapt a long frame plow to a 520 tractor with the swept axle(1990 and up). Not aware of an adapter to convert a short frame to a long frame. If you have a sawsall and a welder....all things are possible.
  6. Snow plow question

    That looks like a frame for a short frame tractor. The 300 series has a long frame.
  7. Kohler gas cap

    First one I have seen in 75 years.

  9. C-120 PTO to Deck Belt Install

    Ypu have to swing the PTO hoop to the rear to get the belt on the PTO. And you have to remove the guard on the mule drive to get the belt on those pulleys.
  10. 12 hp K301 No Spark

    The problems I have with replacing all the ignition components at the same time is; 1. you will never know which part caused the problem 2. new components do not always function properly Having said that, I understand not everyone has the luxury of being able to swap out a component from a running tractor to find the problem
  11. New CL find

    Done, open the link in the first post.
  12. 12 hp K301 No Spark

    A 1973 Auto (no name) should only have a safety switch on the PTO lever. That switch is in the ignition circuit and could prevent voltage from reaching the coil if it is not functioning properly. Here is the link to your tractors wiring diagram.
  13. 12 hp K301 No Spark

    Set the meter on the DC volts scale next higher than 12. Put positive (red) lead on the coil + and the negative (black) lead on the battery negative post. Turn the switch to the on position. You must have 12VDC to the coil. If you do not have 12VDC, no new coil, points, condenser, spark plug, or spark plug wire will solve the problem. Lack of voltage to the coil could be caused by corroded connections at the battery or ignition switch, a bad battery, or a broken wire.
