    How do you pick up / put down / move around your heavy engines?

    I use a chain fall- but I think a folding Cherry Picker would be ideal.

    WHEEL HORSE REAR WHEELS SAFE FOR HIGHWAY USE ?

    Thanks Guys- the way the trailer sits now- it has 3 bars over each exposed inner wheel & tire- inside width of bars is just big enough to squeak a 42" cut mower deck between them-If I could gain an inch on each side it would be great! All "Size matters"! Al

    WHEEL HORSE REAR WHEELS SAFE FOR HIGHWAY USE ?

    Thanks Guys- I've been around pee patch a few times & would never just use a wheel or anything that was not approved. Thats why I asked those who know. Thanks again. My worries on the spacers is not that puts a lot on strain on the elongated lugs to mount them. - Al
  8. Hi Guys- I'm speaking of wheels not tires. I picked up a small trailer and by using a wheel that is offset, I can gain enough track width to help getting tractors with larger decks aboard. Thanks for any advice you may give! GO ILLINI!

    Raider 12 drive belt slipping

    I had the same problem on the "Yellow 953" I had. It turned out to be that because the same pedal that works the brake, works the clutch- the brake adjustment is too early and won't let the pedal to travel far enough to disengage & engage properly- Set the brake so it doesn't activate til right at the last of the pedal movement- then your clutch will be fine- Al

    POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Sorry my bad- I meant 2.5-5 lbs- I befuddled about this-the tractor is running again- I put on a known good stock pump-I will research using a return line back to gas tank- I found one video where they did it on a Deere. They used a T fitting & used the regulator to vary the pressure to let fuel go back to the tank. I haven't given up- just retreated to fight another day- Grass had to get cut! Thanks for all the help- I will up date this post or start another when I make the change- Al

    POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Just to test, I should be able to turn key on @ 4 lbs and let the pump run- and nothing should leak- correct? I have a Nelson muffler right in front of carb- and dont want to start a fire- Al

    POWER SOUCE ELECTRIC FUEL PUMP?

    Engine won't start at 4 Lbs- but will start @ 4 1/2 Lbs. But then floods out.- Al
