Question About attaching snowthrower
I have a C-Series tractor, 1980 or 1981, black hood.
It came with a snowthrower (snowblower?) already mounted. When I removed it, I didn't take pictures, and wish I did. Now, today, I have attempted to reattach it. I have it attached to the frame via a single bolt that goes all the way through. There is a long bar and tube beneath. The tube has a large nut at one end, and it goes into the hook located at the center rear of the snowthrower. The other end has a long rob, with a piece of flat stock welded to it, and a hole drilled into it. It is just large enough for the pin on the rock shaft (I think thats the term) which normally goes into the mounting point of a mower deck. So I placed the flat stock in such position that it does that. (see pic below).
I routed the belt onto the pulley closest to the engine because in the outer groove it would not line up properly. The auger turns great, needs a bit of oiling I think.
When I put the hydraulic control into up or down, the snowthrower body does nothing. It never rests on the ground, and in the 'up' position the shaft and tube assembly bend to a degree that makes me nervous.
The tube and bar meet up with a pin and there is nail to keep them together.
It appears that the snowthrower has had some fabricating done to it, not sure if it was out of necessity to keep a worn implement running, or if it was due to modify it to fit my machine. I cannot find much from the data plate (below pic). The measurement is about 36.5 inches at the front.
Does anyone have any suggestions about the tube and bar stock which is supposed to lift? I went 17 pages deep into implements forum, and search was relatively bland for solution.
As always, thanks for your assistance.
Need some help with a C-160
By Horsing Around RS
Ok guys I'm stumped. I have a 1975 C-160 and I have a couple problems with it.
1. There is a voltage draw on it some where, even when the key is off. - not a huge problem
2. After the tractor has been running awhile, it turns itself off and cannot be restarted again until it has cooled down. The starter will not even engage. I have replaced the coil and condenser. It has a new battery too.
The system is charging. I asssume it needs a new starter because once it gets warm it no longer works. But I do not know why it would turn itself off.
I am not sure if these 2 issues are related but any help would be greatly appreciated.
