  1. C120 slippin'

    Bob, Before we go off in a different direction I want to know; Did you do what Sarge suggested in post #29 and remove the hub or did I miss a post saying that the hub is off the axel?
  2. How much HP for a Snowthrower

    Several years ago I had a nice 1970 Simplicity with a vertical shaft 8 HP B &S driving a 36" singl e stage snowblower; No problem!
  3. Underside mower deck protection

    IMHO Popping out of gear is usually worn splines or shifting fork. Sorry!
  4. My Restored 101C

    Nice job! Looks just like my 1979 C-101 that I restored a couple of years ago. I really like it, but I like the simplicity and the looks of my custom (See picture on right) 1967 867 better.

    Bob;, Pull the hubs and trans drive pulley, check the keys and keyways,then let us know what you find. thanks, Ron

    Just to be clear, I was referring to the type of bearing seal that is best for a none greasable spindle, a black plastic seal or the metal shield, which I guess is also considered a seal.. Thanks
  7. What is the preferred type of bearing for a mower deck; sealed or shield?

    I like the Ohio Steel unit that has a set of spiraled brushes so there is less contact at any one time with the ground thereby reducing the stress on the nylon gears. I also like the Brinkly unit that has 3 brushes around the shaft for a better sweeping action, but of course. that would add to the strain on the drive gears. But then again I like the AgriFab unit because it's on sale, it's sold by Blain's Farm and Fleet that is only a couple of miles from me and also the fact that they're made in my home state of Illinois. Now, if only I could put all of this together in one unit!
  9. discharge shute

    I don't think it's a question of getting electrocuted as much as it is the static building up in the plastic tube which can cause the grass clippings / leaves to cling to the pipe and restrict the flow.
  10. I am considering buying a lawn sweeper to compliment my tractor mount power vacuum system. I'm looking for recommendations based on how well different brands pick up stuff and how well they hold up without stripping out gears, etc, etc.
  11. discharge shute

    Stove pipe is smooth for ease of grass/leaf flow, which in my book is a plus. Did I mention it's cheap?
  12. discharge shute

    Yes, I've used stove pipe on a couple of my tractors with a vacuum system. For flexible connectors on the ends, I've also used 6'-8" sections of inner tube. It all worked very well and it was cheap!
  13. The 'O' ring that goes inside the packing nut of the gas shut-off valve on my 867 is pretty much dried out. Does anyone know the 'O' ring size and are there any tricks to replacing it. Thanks, Ron
  14. Fitting the cutting deck

    Tell me about it nj1052!
  15. I have 3 mower decks to clean and maintain. At 75, it's getting to be a real PITA. Has anyone tried an electric power washer? If so, does it work well? I usually use a putty knife, and a stiff wire wheel on a right angle grinder and then put on a thick coat of E-Z Slide.
