Well I managed to blow the original 20amp fuse on my 72 Raider 12 today :(. I obviously didn't push the Bullet connector in far enough into the Head Light connx'n Block. Had to drain/remove the Fuel Tank for access. Glad I fitted a Drain/Prime system ( LINK) to both Tractors, as it was ready to go again in double quick time.

I also made the fuse(s) more accessible.

 Pulled the head off the Electro 12 today to check how tight the piston is in the bore.  Wanted to compare it to the C-141.  You guys were right, the C will need to be bored out...

 

  Getting ready to re-inforce the cracked shroud on the C.. I wish i was a better welder

It is a C175 auto with an engine from a C141 or 145. So... technically it is a C145 now. It came to me with an M18 running on one cylinder so I swapped it out for a K321.

@bds1984 I plan on doing something along the same lines a c-120 auto is going to donate its engine and wiring to  Commando 800 and I am also transplanting an 8 speed so it will it end being a Commando 1200-8. I have been planning this for a year and have not picked up a wrench yet.

You will love those. I have fluid and wheel weights and the studs make it a snap to install the tires/wheels.

Great topic idea! On my 416h, I replaced the pto belt. 

This thread will NEVER end!

Fixed the wiring on the RJ35 I picked up at show and installed the elbow and air cleaner. Then cleaned up a couple and the 3 are now stored in the Mobile Tractor Bunker. Lol

I have been trying to decide between a new shed/garage out back, or a 7x14 aluminum frame V nose trailer. May have to do both! Beautiful machines!

Today I decided to give up on the new "china" carb that I put on the 1276 right before the big show. I could not get it to adjust, and it was burning fuel like I owned a refinery! The idle jet did nothing no matter where it was set, and the main was all over the place. So today I tore down the original carb, soaked it in fresh carb cleaner, and gave it a once over to get it back into shape. So I figured that I might as well use the new bowl gaskets off the new carb, and low and behold, the bowl had metal shavings in it. So, if your planning on using one, you should probably clean it real good before putting it on! I am still going to use the original, ran fine before I switched carbs.

Got my front tires for my lawn ranger today. Hopefully going to install them tonight. Wife adopted a pup from the humane society and they just called and said she's ready to come home. Things may change, lol.

Well I didn't get my tires on. But we got our newly adopted girl home and kinda familiarized with her new surroundings. Hope she likes riding along behind the tractors like the others.

Experimenting with some strange custom ideas for my COMMANDO

First Computer mock up. Also thinking of traditional but use gold leaf vinyl on black as it will be celebrating its 50th birthday next year.

For now I'm done on the B-160. I got the muffler clamp on it then I swapped the axle bracket from the 500 Special to it and test fit the snow blade so I could ponder about the angle arm. I'd rather get the correct arm but I could modify the one I have if I need to. I've got a few months for that. Sooner or later I'll run across a headlight lens and get lights again. I put the 42" deck from the 2005 on it and got things adjusted. I'm going to leave the 1976 48" deck on the 2005. Now the Mrs. and I can be out mowing together. :D

Today I made a long link bracket for the blade on my 520h. After a little bit adjustments I can get a pretty good amount of down pressure on the blade now. Enough to pick front wheels off the ground.

I really like the slanted Commando text as well. Heck, makes me want to dig up enough pieces to put the 50% Commando I have back together just to put those decals on!

Finally got my 3" rear wheel spacers on the tractor instead of the shelf.

Opened up the center hole about 1/2 an inch or so... (Do not try this at home kids)... with a milling bit on the big drill press. A LOT of patience and trial and error later...

It looks rough but only 'cause it is.

 

Other photos of the work in progress and end result:

20170708_100417.jpg.0f3748a6926d3b9805b479a28277a952.jpg

 

Before: Measures around 33" wide to outside of the tires.

getting there...

 

20170708_145233.jpg.4a4848b5d1ab835e7ebc1e17b91acdbb.jpg

 

After: Measures about 39" across.

 

Carefully verified with a 30+ year old yardstick.

I remember Green Stamps. my mother collected and used them efficiently. I did hate getting dragged to the redemption store. It was an hour plus drive. Then have to spend hours in the place!

Only had to swap out the rockshaft (3 bolts and two clips), trim the clutch pedal and slide it all together.
