    Almost forgot about this little. The excitement of getting that 854 w/ Danco loader overshadowed picking this up.

    Got the B-140 custom and the 702 custom out today and played in the snow. I didn't put the weights on the 702 yet and I was impressed how well it pushed the snow.

    @KyleLengerich Nice job becoming a supporter. And for the record, most of us 5 year olds really do appreciate lots of pictures.

    Well, I got it running again! Starter wasn’t acting right, after some help from @ebinmaine and @roadapples, in the words of the late great Johnny Cash, “We had that engine running just like a song.” Christmas also came a little early this year, so I figured I’d get festive and turn my name red. Y’all like pictures, and now I don’t have a limit, so y’all are gunna be seeing a lot of pictures! 😂

    Thanks to all of you. I looked today and the return spring is missing. The damper is in good condition and pedal movement is easy. I am really glad to take time and join this forum because it will be a valuable tool for me.I am so excited getting this tractor for $200. One owner, 580 hrs. He gave me 3 oil filters, a air filter, and a spark plug plus all the original booklets for tractor and deck. I just started going over it yesterday and did the deck. I cannot believe how nice shape it is. Thanks again for info and I am sure I'll be asking another question.

    Check the idler pulley. For a belt to fail that quickly it must be friction. Locked idler or something scraping on the belt

    Finally got this tractor in my possession and home. Been trying for 4 years to buy this tractor. Fellow Junkie released it to me for reasonable price. This tractor needs a lot of TLC. Was running on starter fluid several weeks ago. Now it is snowing and everything is froze. Hopefully this weekend we will get back to the 50s and will thaw everything out. Pretty sure transmission is froze up. Really bad thing right now is it is sitting on my trailer and can't get it to move. But...it is at least at my house now and hopefully start getting it back to its glory. Last picture is of it just after being power washed at the local car wash.

    A 5/32" vacuum hose is connected to a switch mounted behind the instrument panel next to the battery. When the air filter becomes restricted with dirt, the vacuum increases and the switch turns the warning light on. Often the switch has the hose connection broken off. Restore the system or cap the fitting to prevent dirt from being drawn inside. Switches are available here, currently the website is being updated. I have repaired switches with a custom made aluminum adapter.

    Okay so A-1.... Safety. Disconnect your negative battery cable. Now get in there and pop that starter off of the tractor and get it on the bench. You see the nut on the end of the shaft near the small gear. Take that nut off and there's going to be a few things that come off in your hands. There's a small spring and a clip or a washer or something. Don't lose those things. That gear rides out on a shaft that has semicircular grooves cut into it. The odds are very very high that all that is wrong is the assembly is dirty and sticky. Take those pieces out and check for broken parts and then just clean them all up really really good. Get some dry powder graphite lube and coat the pieces as you put them back together. Do not use a liquid or paste of any form as your lubricant. It will attract and hold dust and create paste which is what your problem likely already is.

    Original tyres and wheel bearings were past their sell by date. So into Carlisle for replacements. Take two modified wheel spindles made a while ago. Two trailer hubs. Two trailer wheels and tyres. Looking good. Back on all fours. Only £50 more than new turf tyres and wheel bearings.

    My late Grandfather’s snowblower has bounced around the family since 2005. I have no idea how long since the oil was changed, and for the last year or two it hasn’t run. My father in law put a new carb on it, had it running ok then a tire blew out and I dropped off my spare plow truck to him instead. Now, my sister in-law and her husband bought a place in the country and I offered this beast to help them out. Well tonight, I verified it had spark, pulled the carb and brake cleaned it, popped it back together and with some ear-dyno tuning that Tecky is a screamer again! Warmed it up good, drained the oil and topped it off with fresh synthetic. It’s ready for another season of snow blasting, once the new ag tires show up in a couple days. (it’s too late and cold to run ou and get pictures, sorry)

    I like the look of the red wheel weights, and have them on one of my tractors. I also have a set of silver ones that I use on a WH because they go well with the Chrome hubcaps on the front wheels. Your call. I think that most of the original weights were white or linen to match the wheel rims. Your money, your choice. Jim

    Take a look at the red colored weights on my tractor, this should give you an idea of what to expect

    Man oh man! @giddyap that thing looks absolutely fantastic. Here's the thing though. You don't have enough snow. We get more snow here in Maine. You should just send me those skis and I'll put them on something and put them to good use. Hahahahaha You had best be doing a build thread when you do that!!!!

    That is awesome! I think I need to put together some spare parts and make one of these. I have a 13hp Honda engine that would be perfect for this I do believe.

    Put the snowblower on for the first time in about 15 years. Still works. Headlights are kaput and even when they worked, didn't throw much light so the next project might be an LED light bar.

    Interesting project. You sure did a number on messing up that snow.

    Perfect! Thanks @ebinmaine! Now to get it out to the bench and broken down. Updates (probably in the form of questions😂) to follow. Tell your boss I said you could have the rest of the day off, any problems give me a call

    If you're really concerned about the brake band tension spring clearance (I would be too), how about making a 1/2" wide x 1/8" thick x 1 3/4" long extension tab that would bolt onto the Uni-Drive housing web and would extend an inch higher that the height of the web? Drill a like sized hole in the extension tab to allow fitment of the spring and Presto! You've got your clearance problem solved. My $0.02 worth..... Cheers! Dave

    Those are the kind of bolts you tell your wife you need from the hardware store so she'll be gone a while! Giving you time to go pick up another tractor !

    I don't know wheel weights by model number but every one I know of mounts to the rim using carriage bolts. Thread size is 3/8 which uses a 9/16 hex nut.

    In the drawing below item # 53 is the damper. It is located on the right side and they become slow acting due to dirt and crud build up. Just remove it and be cautious when releasing the clutch. got along without them for several decades, don't know why the felt a need to mess up a good thing.

    Some came with a damper to keep the clutch from taking hold to fast. It could be it's not working as it should. It can be replaced with a spring. You don't want to drop the clutch with the spring as the front wheels will come off the ground. It will come up pretty good if you have the engine wide open.

    They look identical to the Carlisles on my tractor. I think I paid $85 apiece but that was a few years ago. The ones you posted seemed to be priced well! I did use wide rims to mount mine (23x10.5)...not sure how well they would be on the narrower rims that a 312 came with.

    Idler pulley return spring is either weak or broken. It's located under the belt guard on the right side of the tunnel, next to your right heel. If that's not the case, then could be the wrong length drive belt on it. Good luck, Jim Correction. The clutch return spring on your model is on the left, even though it operates the idler pulley on the right.. Trace the connecting rod from the clutch pedal, back to the linkage. Could be something as simple as a missing roll pin or cotter pin, or a missing spring, or a broken connection lever (parts still available from Toro dealers). Go into the Manuals section on this forum, and search for 1990 312-8 to see a diagram and parts list. Jim

    WHX my neighbor guy thinks it's pretty cool. He gets a kick out of seeing the "Old" tractors out working. He's a "kid" lol, same age of my oldest son, 38 yrs old.

    I too have the same machines, B80 and a C101. They both have Rear Discharge mowers on them. I let my daughter borrow the C unit for her place 60 miles away. The C is in rougher shape than the B but I have restored/ made usable. It has preformed well so far this summer.
