    Snow thrower conversion

    I am very lucky. He has built or fixed many wheel horse parts for me over the years. He can build anything. He is gonna be lost when he retires. Me too!

    Snow thrower conversion

    Had to make a trip to dad's shop to drill out the holes for the idler since this model didn't come with it. Here are a few pics. Headed out to dinner with the family then probably to get that all squared away and figure out a belt size. Brought the my youngest. He loves building stuff. He fits right in with grampy.

    Snow thrower conversion

    They will be. Dad made the pins today. I couldn't get a angle grinder into cut the bracket for the bearing and drive shafts so the mechanic at work hit it quick with the the plasma. Only cost me a 6 pack. Got the extended drive shaft and bearings assembled and welded it all back where it needs to be. Tomorrow after ice fishing I will work on determining where the idler needs to be mounted and figuring out if it's gonna need a different sized drive belt.

    What are your other hobbies?

    Other than tractors I am into hunting and fishing. I shoot a lot of archery with my wife kid's and friends. My young boys play baseball so we do lots of practices and games all year.
  7. We are looking at 8-14" here in western mass. They have been dropping their estimates all day. My 416h is ready with the 2 stage and my 753 is ready with the plow. By the time I get home I'm sure I wont want to do any of it with the tractors. Boss already said 1 to 2 am start Sunday morning. Then out by noon and back as soon as it finishes before the flash freeze.

    Snow thrower conversion

    Hit a minor snag tonight working on the snow thrower. I have the drive rod that has the belt pulley on one end and gear for the drive chain on the other. On the old wheel horse shafts the gear had a keyway and set screws to hold it in place. The new style has been welded. Walked the shaft to my dad's house and he took a quick look at it and he quickly knew what he was gonna do. He also made me a pair if lift flags for my stash of parts. He is gonna make some pins for them. This picture was of them before he added the rod to them. My camera on my phone is busted so that's all I have right now. I also noticed that the main drive shaft for this blower runs a lot lower then on the old wheel horse throwers. I'm hoping. A belt a little longer will solve this problem. I am also gonna go the lift assist spring to help my bil out.

    @Herder perfect thanks so much. I will be in touch. As long as the snow doesn't come every weekend I will come down in the next couple weeks. @ebinmaine I can get it back here to Deerfield but may be able to get it to athol

    I don't believe alignment will be a problem with my dad in the mix. He won't let anything leave the shop til it's just perfect lol

    No pictures went thru but I got the text. My buddy was gonna pick up the snow thrower for me cause with the snow moving into the area I'm on call for snow. I'm not sure when I will be able to get there. At least 2 weeks depending on weather.

    I messaged him about a snow thrower he has. I was gonna have a friend of mine whos near there pick it up for me. If we can figure something out then maybe I can make the trip some time soon. I can get it back to Deerfield Mass for now. About half hour from Athol.

    Unusual surprise today

    My choice on the loss. I mainly chase round hoods up to early 70's. He is a great guy. He better take good care of this one. I plan on working a maintence plan with him since he isn't mechanically inclined.

    Unusual surprise today

    I just snagged one the other day. If my brother in law didn't need one so bad I would be keeping it.
  15. My dad works as a machinest in the big college locally. He was up at the scrap yard one day and found this almost brand new toro wheel horse snow thrower. I didn't really look at it cause he wanted to give it to my brother in law with his last wheel horse but then he bought a JD. Now he's gettin the 310 I picked up the other day. I went to my dad's to get the thrower and realized it wasn't ment for a 310 style tractor. I ran the serial number and it turns out it is ment for a 260 series toro. Well after doing some digging in my parts pile I have every piece I need to convert it to fit. So between my parts and my dad's fab skills we might have it up and running by this weekend storm so I can put it through its paces before I deliver it to him.
