A good days work

Recommended Posts

Woke up this morning to 5" of new snow with 1/2" of ice on top. After breakfast I fired up the D and hit three driveways. The snow thrower slowly ate through the heavy snow & ice. The chute clogged twice so I had to slow down some. The fourth driveway was a different story. My D has the power but not the traction. The drive is about 100' long and most of it is uphill. Thye D just will not grab, even with chains and wheel weights. So I had to resort to my Deere with the snow plow. At least it will go UP the drive so I can plow DOWN the drive. Once I broke up the snow with the plow and pushed it as far as I could (which wasn't too far) I was able to chew through the piles and throw that stuff where it belongs. Now, all three of my elderly neighbors can get out if necessary, All in all, it was a good day.

The snow in central pa was a bear today...so wet and sloppy under that thick sheet of ice. my chute clogged 5-6 times but got 5 driveways cleaned up. My 11 year old passed out flyers this fall to do driveways. He's the clean up shovel man for now since he can't lift the blower. He got a call today because the guy who plows the neighbor did not show up and when he does he takes 2 long swipes and leaves the neighbor 1/2 hr. of snow to shovel. He's learning the value of money and what it takes to make it!

We had about 2" of ice & snow. It was so hard to break through it and plow it.

When I got through it and down to black-top, my chains would spin on the asphalt, and this stuff was heavy!

No fun at all!

      1967 Wheel Horse 1277 - Kohler K301S, gas engine, belt driven, hydrostatic. I had it running recently but then attempted some electrical work. I also cleaned it up by sanding some rust, dirt and grime off body and engine. Some new parts were added like a new choke cable, ignition switch, head lights, spark plug, battery and battery cables. I have new seat and some other parts that I will never use if sold. The implements include a tiller, snow thrower, mower deck. I've never attached these items. I have some belts and pulleys that came with it when I inherited it. It's easily accessible for removal and showing.

      Grandpa wouldn't line up in right way.  Stubborn. Nice day today, got some of my herd out. 315-8 w/42" deck to mow. D200 to disc w/tandem disc. 520H w/36" tiller. And RJ59 with 36" Parker Sweeper. These horses done me well today.

      I repowered my D200 last winter.  I got the for/rev handle on wrong.  It’ll just drift and has no resistance if you’re operating it.  I would like to put a fiber washer in the linkage somewhere.  Any ideas.  These are just some pics of the repower.

      Guess since I broke the hub and found that bad axle keyway I’m going to pull the rear and rebuild it
      might as well, cause I need to replace the axle. This way I get a good look inside and inspect everything.
      Also change the bull gear bolts to mark 8, seals, bearings, whatever it needs.
      1: looks like I’ll need to make a new gasket
      2: Axle seals
      3: Bull gear bolts and nuts 5/16 mark 8 
      4: O-rings 
      5: and Anything else as I inspect
      6: Not sure what torque specs are but I'm sure someone will know.
      This way she will be tip top and painted.
      I will post pics as I go not sure when I’ll start but I need her fixed.
