    Hydraulic lift wait time

    I have 4 tractors with the Eaton 1100 When the temp is low, one takes 10 minutes to lift and the other three lift in 1 minute. All four tractors work fine. I have seen a bulletin from WH stating to prevent damage, the tractors with the Eaton 1100 should be warmed up for 10 minutes before use.

    Dragged home a Work Horse

    Careful Cleat.....when it fires up, don't let the PTO yank the hood support chain. Good deal, she could turn out to be a real stallion.

    42" deck rebuild

    When I rebuild decks, I always add 1/16" steel reinforcement plates inside the deck at the wheel carriage brackets. Then bolt the bracket thru the deck and the new plate. These plates can also usually be made to cover the rust holes.
  4. to the Bob. Great intro and pictures.... BUY IT, in my area plows sell for 150 bucks. You get a free tractor. As stated above, the 8HP Kohler is a great easy starting engine. I am not a fan of the rocker plate engine mounts, but that is a fine tractor.
  5. I bought a blower drive pulley at TSC for my tall chute. I actually replaced the stock pulley with a 1/2" smaller dia. pulley for two reasons. 1. The P220 Onan in my 520 sounds and feels better at 3200 RPM than 3600. So at 3200 the smaller pulley keeps the auger turning at the same speed as stock pulley at 3600 engine RPM. 2. I can now replace the blower belt w/o loosening the bearing block.

    Removing the Mule Drive

    I had to add a spacer to move the lever out enough to clear the motion control pedal in my 312 hydro . You may also have to lengthen the 1/2" rod to get the lever more vertical.

    Wheel horse 42" snow thrower

    I believe it is size 40 chain. Take your sprocket along and make sure the chain fits the teeth when you wrap it totally around the sprocket. Use a piece of tape to measure the length of chain that you need for your blower. TSC sells the chain by the foot. Buy enough chain and a connector link. Make sure the tensioning idler sprocket or block is loosened when you install and cut the chain to the correct length. The chain will stretch with use, and you will have to tighten it with the idler sprocket or bloc. OOps, I see Garry has answered your question. Thanks Garry

    C'mon Cleat, It's hard to beat home grown Pa corn squeezins.

    Removing the Mule Drive

    The flat bar extending down under the mule drive must be pulled forward. As stated above, yours is bent and may have to be driven forward with a BFH to release the fingers that hold the mule in place.

    Removing the Mule Drive

    As you hold in the rod you are pushing on. And don't let the mule drop on your hand.
