    I Just Had to Have One

    Nice find for sure! I never had the chance to work on the cubs as much, I was always told the rear end on them is super strong and coveted by pulling tractor enthusiast? Still a wonderful find.
  3. I had the classic Ammeter Melt Down awhile back and never polished up the drawing, here is the final result. The dash light in this circuit is representative of the back light within the Voltmeter Gauge. This circuit isn't likely to have such a melt down again.

    Sears Bankruptcy

    Sears & Roebuck! Who doesn't have fond memories of all the wonderful O.P.E. & Tools! Then shortly after the Customer Service began the "decline", it was only a matter of time.......

    D series PTO shaft

    This may be of some help.......
  7. I found this pto driven 60 inch deck from a D-250, curious to know if the pto speed and rotation will permit me to fabricate this into three point cat-0?

    Those front wheels are great! The whole machine is excellent! I envy the engineering went into those wheels for sure!

    kohler rectifier k181-k582

    Yes, the gauge I am using may not be that accurate, I will search and by a new rectifier. As per gwest I agree a solid ground is crucial. I have the circuit modified with the amp meter bypassed/removed and a volt meter in place grounded to a block behind the dash. I seen the charging volts high and I won't run the engine too long that way for sure! Oldman

    kohler rectifier k181-k582

    Right, whenever I tested it outside the tractor and plugged into the harness, I ran a solid ground and it worked great. So then I already had the surface cleaned very well. I may just go ahead and install and additional ground as stated. Rectifiers can be dysfunctional due to that grounding issue and then people can't figure it out as the rectifier and or regulators test out fine on the bench. Sears are good for placing theirs in bad locations, which are also almost impossible to get to! The 18 auto isn't too bad to get to from the ground with a 1/4 drive, using a 1 inch extension. (I prefer mine inside) Some people just mount a new one outside and it is susceptible to damage that way. My volt gauge is after market and probably isn't too great, but it is resisting the rain, "for now", Lol! I have a nice W.S. on reserve. I changed the circuit to allow a volt meter and bypassed/removed the amp gauge altogether. I also installed a solid grounding block behind the dash. I have the modified schematic handy if anyone needs one. Thanks for the reply, enjoy the day! Regards, Oldman
  12. Hello, I am getting 13v dc at idle and 15-16v dc at full throttle. I hope this is fine as I am using my last rectifier right now. Regards, Oldman

    Kohler k482 overheating?

    Kohler k482 overheating?

    Let me go outside here when it cools off and run it again since the last adjustments. OK, I went outside and fired 'er up right, the heat issue has ceased, perhaps by tightening the 8th inch line from the oil pump to the block helped? Although the rectifier finally went! I had a spare from a kohler k241, old style and the plug matched correctly, so it charges at 16v full throttle and 13v at an idle. The heating up thingy seems to have ceased, for now! I will keep an eye on the oil safety shut-off though!
