Yes!

I use an online calculator for steel weight. Goes back to my working days.

Plugged in some generic numbers and...says they are heavy.

@8ntruck  https://pgnbearings.com/products/6203-2rs?  just a reference to a very common bearing , note the glairing wide rubber side shields ? easily removed with a flat pocket screwdriver , typically the " grease " is made for light low temp applications , like ceiling fans , and consistently fail / whine  with noise. clean out grease , flush with carb cleaner , repack same amount with  lucas , x- tra heavy duty . bearing failure issues are gone , was that difficult ? that bearing size is common to mower deck spindles , mule drive bearings , that heavy angular mule drive pull , really cooks a bearing , anything related to mower deck function and related lubrication , gets the green , read the specs , your front axel spindles and axel center shaft and steering fan gear , also work with total ease . having applied this fix to chronic , failures , just makes me ask , why not ? how about that chronic drive belt , idler pully failure ?  thats an easily doable fix , realize this approach to stopping a problem is not what many do , often stare at picture failures , time to make a change , only if you want to , greasy, pete

I use to be good at math, got old and lost it. Just can't come up with the right answer even when I know what it is.

Started moving the wheelhorses to the temporary storage unit in town.

 

This is "Pete" the C-161 that's getting an engine transplant and FEL. Amazingly the half knackered briggs fired up and let me drive him to the trailer - has sat for nearly 2 years.

 

All the fibreglass bodywork is already at the storage unit, along with the 416-8.

Tuneup

K301 carb connected and the linkage adjusted. Coil mounted. The starter return spring is knackered (I do like that word). Removed it and messed with it until it could rightly tuck when mercilously rammed by the bendix. Mounted. Stared at three mufflers and an assortment of piping. It's down to painting an original ebay model that now sits on the old C120 and is quieter than the remake. This rebuild has been fun. She's about ready to start so I can see if a 60 year old brain can align timing marks and how much a 301 vibrates without its balance gears. It could all go to hell but it never has since the teen days. First bore though so it will be a 12HP engine that actually makes 12HP.

Interested to see the results. I got a cub engine on solid mounts, no gears, and it will shake your teeth out. 

I am actually thinking something else is wrong. Idles nice and as it comes up through the RPM it hits some bands of vibration and of course one of them is full throttle. 

One of these days, might just change flywheel and put a runout gauge on the output shaft to see if it is bent. :confusion-shrug:

Too close to show time going to back burner.

I mowed this evening with my late grandfathers 416H. I love how it stripes.

I very much enjoy stories like this.

And neighbors?  Well…

Being neighborly is a good thing, yes?

I’m lucky my uncle gave me first chance at it when he decided to “upgrade” to a Cub cadet.

 

My direct next door neighbor on one side doesn’t mow their lawn at all, on the other side is my parents house, on the other side of them is another neighbor who doesn’t mow. She’s the one who’s a pain.

I cleaned up TachMatic parts, so I can put the guts back in Clyde's mid hitch.  When I got him, both side plates were hanging loose and the latch pieces were gone.

 

I'll get the hitch fixed, then pull the PTO apart so I can get that operational.  It has a cone clutch.  Hopefully, the clutch surfaces on the cone and engine pulley are OK.

We have a lot of pig manure from the 2000 still in the sheds.
