  1. discharge shute

    Never heard that (?). If so, wouldn't be enough to do any harm.
  2. discharge shute

    Perhaps Schedule 20 PVC pipe. Also inexpensive, available at Lowes and Home Cheapo. https://www.lowes.com/pd/Charlotte-Pipe-6-in-x-2-ft-Sewer-Main-PVC-Pipe/4757741?cm_mmc=SCE_BINGPLA_ONLY-_-RoughPlumbingElectrical-_-OutdoorDrainage-_-4757741:Charlotte_Pipe&CAWELAID=&kpid=4757741&CAGPSPN=pla{ifdyn:dyn}&k_clickID=a2230566-b332-4b42-83a0-0a5d76c8251a&msclkid=3c79dd1ba6891357bd2987c07d681d41
  3. Another pricing question

    Fair ( should read "Very fair!" ) price in Northeast PA. Should go quickly. Semper Fi Grunt. 1-2-3-4 I Love the Marine Corps.
  4. discharge shute

    Often thought 'bout using a duct boot. https://www.lowes.com/pd/IMPERIAL-12-in-x-4-in-x-6-in-Galvanized-Steel-End-Register-Duct-Boot/1000230321 And flexible duct pipe. https://www.lowes.com/pd/IMPERIAL-6-in-x-96-in-Aluminum-Semi-rigid-Flexible-Duct/50169335
  5. Planter-Sleeve Hitch S2H-BS

    No idea who the manufacturer is or was. But, nice addition. Be sure to "report" your successful planting! We need to know how your "Horse" implement performs.
  6. Tire lawn ranger 33R

    He'd be very proud! Nice!
  7. Good snow tire?

    Nice donuts. A bit prickly though.
  8. Ready For Spraying Season

    Front weights in order!
  9. 314-8 seat

    Tractor Supply has numerous steel pan seats on the shelf, reasonably priced. I used quite a few. Bolt patterns are universal, several patterns on each seat. Press nuts fitted, bolt on and you're all set to ride 'em cowboy. "This seat features a standard 5/16" thread for the mounting holes, and multiple mounting patterns: 6in. x 5in., 7.5in. x 3in., 7.5in. x 7in., 8.2in. x 5in., 8.5in. x 1.63in., 11.25in. x 11in." https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/black-talon-deluxe-high-back-steel-pan-seat?cm_vc=-10005
  10. New Old Owner!

    Great Horse! Excellent! Welcome and, sorry, the start of WHA (Wheel Horse Addiction). No cure.
  11. Fitting the cutting deck

    Makes me think, long time ago, shops with no lifts. Drive over the pit. Nowadays during mowing season I drive up my pickup ramps to power wash under the deck. Then blow dry. Down, grease and belt dressing. Winter, decks off and up on horses, a good cleanup.
  12. You want what ... For THAT?

    No arm rests?
  13. Bagged out steering bushing hole?

    I would try a sleeve bearing which could be held in place; i.e.: JB Weld, Loctite, construction adhesive. http://www.qbcbearings.com/BuyRFQ/SleeveB_StandardS_F_SB_I.php http://www.qbcbearings.com/BuyRFQ/SleeveB_SmallS_F_SB_I.php I keep some of QBC's thrust washers on hand to eliminate front wheel play.

  14. 314-8 Rear turf tire size options

    Walmart $$$$ looks great. Go for it!
  15. 1982, 83, 84 Workhorse Series

    Think the driver was short legged? Pedal looks "boosted"? Late 60's lived in Tulsa for a year. Was building new dorms in Norman. Fun, young, had a blast.
