Recommended Posts

Just a trace near me , BUT .... less than 5 miles to the south ( my snowmobiling territory ) they have got nearly 2 feet in the last 3 days .

Trails open Dec 21st if everything's froze-up . ..... I'm chompin' at the bit after last years dismal 96 mile season :(

I feel for you guys in the winter. Hopefully you all have some sympathy for us down here when we roast in the summer

Sort of. Just waiting for a big dump this evening and through the night. So that means they'll be calling about 3:00am. So i thought i would nip down to the coffee shop,read the paper,and cruise on back.

I was out for a couple of hours cleared 4 driveways 3 of them were hills 4th is joint drive so no where to throw snow but in front of ya. I also cleared 5 to 6 feet of roadway on each side of the street by the curb since city plow drivers seem to be scared of getting to close to it. I only got to do the sidewalk in front of 2 of the houses because my oldest grand kids wanted to run my Troybilt snow thrower. She got rest of the side walks, 1 drive at the house where my mom lived till last month and a parking space on other side of vacant lot next to my house. Had 5+ inches of snow and my Briggs powered tractor had no problems running the thrower and climbing the grades. The thrower I modified sounded sweet no squealing or chain noise dam near sounded like giant fan running. Will say snow was a little wet it loaded up in the shoot a few times next year I may have to clean and repaint it to make inside as slick as possible. And since it is still snowing and the weather service is calling for up to 10" my tomorrow morning when this storm is supposed to pass I get to do it all again tomorrow. :)

Thanks I told my daughter I would get up and use my truck to get her to work by 6:30 tomorrow morning ( she hates driving in heavy snow ) so after I play in the snow I'll go pick some up and try it out.

I just got done pushing snow and my C160 is a monster . The snow doesn't even slow it down. But with chain's and rear tires filled with rv antifreeze it did spin a little when it started to peel grass and dirt. I've  got to  learn to raise the blade more often . I'll just add the wheel weights on . I did notice that when I tilt the plow to left or right the trailing edge would dig in to dirt or gravel more then front.

      Got a hold of a mower deck but need to add the hanging frame and clutch. Would anyone be able to get me the measurements for these parts?  Looks like simple flat bar and rod for the hangers and angle iron on the deck. Clutch maybe more of a challenge. Would also appreciate any up close pictures especially of the clutch. I have a 36 inch deck and the hanger on it wont work on this low profile framed tractor. Was also considering getting a tach a matic type hanger system off a more modern deck and modifying it to fit this tractor. Easily bought from Ebay. Not sure if it might be too tall to fit under with the tach a matic. But would rather keep more original, maybe even find the right deck all together. This is my future project to rebuild top to bottom. Also working on a 1986 417-8 no engine but have 12hp Kohler for her.

      Just recently purchased a 1964 34R and a separate deal landed a Snow Thrower, believe it to be a ST323 maybe a 324. It does not have the idler pulley. I did find posts for measurements on the pulley arm for Ranger. I need close up pics of the ends of the clutch rod and the crank rod as well as measurements so that I can fab these parts. Or if anyone has these parts for sale I would be interested.

      Lawn ranger came up for sale near enough to me. He wants 350 "firm". Comes with a deck. Would like to know what looks correct and what's not. Wheels? Engine? Lights? Decals? Don't know much about these little guys. The resto. looks good. He says it runs good and the deck is good. It's the only pic I have of it. Fuzzzzzzy at best I know.
      Would appreciate feed back.

      Searched for months but never could find a factory set of LR 18" turf rear tires. Had a set of ATV tires so I mounted them. Actually not a bad look.
      No worry about traction........still stock and will stay that way.....just need the WH badged 18" rear tires.
