  1. I think $300 is very high for those weights. They are more in the $150-$200 range. If it was a complete set of rear and front weights then $300 would be spot on.
  2. And I was one of those 5 callers! Congrats!

    Five sector snow plow

    Somehow I have acquired two 48” snowplows with the 5 hole sectors. The weird thing is I never see them or hear anything about them. Mine are very different in the angling hardware. One has the standard rigid wire to the triangle plate that pivots and pulls the angle position pin. The other has a cable similar to the brake cables on a bicycle. The angle arm also has some interesting factory bends in it. They both work perfect. Are they rare? What years were they produced?

    push blade, 11hp briggs

    I see your looking for a vertical shaft Briggs engine. The engine in this ad would be a horizontal shaft.

    C series confusion

    Sort of. The frame, steering, motors and transmissions pretty much stayed the same. The sheetmetal and a few other things changed over the years. A) The first machines referred to as a “C” series and were the same each year were the 1974-1977 units. B) The 1978-1979 “C” series looked real close to the previous machines with a few changes. C) The 1980-1984 “C” series were very different looking (same mechanicals as previous years) . 1984 was the last year a “C” series was offered. Machines made after 1984 were called the 300, 400 and 500 series. There were also a couple of oddball “C” series machines produced after 1979 such as the Gt2500 Anniversary model and a couple others.

    Storm Responder by Briggs & Stratton

    I understand the interlock concept but yours seems screwy. If your main is off(down) it seems like it will drop the bracket down and prevent that top left double pole breaker from being turned on? Or am I not seeing something??

    Fuel pump question

    I reached out to John ( @wallfish ) and he set me straight. They go in opposite and are check valves, fuel is incoming thru the right side of my pic, leaves the fuel pump thru the left side with the 90 degree fitting. Learned something today.. thanks John!!
