Re: setting up a sleeve hitch plow for use on a 3point

Joe What are you asking? For set up info? Or how to bolt it on? The info should be found in the document section above. I haven’t poked around there I. A while so I could be wrong. As for mounting there was a guy on eBay making A-frame type adaptors with the Brinly Mount included. I bought one of th...

Back on line!

So after 4+ days without power or internet we are back! The isis storm left a mess here in CT, luckily no trees or damage to fix/clean up. Several trees in the neighborhood where blocking roads. At the height of the storm I had someone coming for a engine from a 1650. He couldn’t get in and as he tr...

Re: Sabre tractor

Steve is correct, to add they are basically stx38 Deere’s painted differently. Deere upgrades there own line and took the older model and kept making them under the scotts brand. Then later the saber. Then did away with both!

Re: High-boss vs Low-boss Cylinder Head ???

The 3 studs that are “extra”, are they along the flywheel side of the block? If so it’s posable that your engine was replaced with a short block or new engine for a narrow frame. Is your engine black from the factory? Often times the engines sold as replacement would fit many models if the changes r...

Re: Original tire options?

I’m running a mix of stuff... because you have a Original your stuck with the 4x8 fronts, unless you drive out the bushings and put them in a newer rim. Miller tire in Ohio sells a decent 4x8 tire that has a old look. Lots of options if you change out the bushings and go to a 16-6.50x8. As for the r...

Clean all wiring connections, including the ground which is through the fender and the frame with the same bolt that holds the fender on. Also double check any connections going to starter, sounds to me like you’re not getting enough current flow

Re: Carb Repairs

You would need to find a used one, the shaft repair kit requires you to grind off the Top of the shaft and the new one has a tapped hole for a small screw. I think it4-40 threads.

I did find a OEM for the bushing without the shaft. 25-158-02-s. I’ve yet to try this but it has been saved in my eBay watch list for some time. It’s around $15 with shipping. Keep us posted.

Re: Carb Repairs

Worked with 3 this spring, 2 couldn’t get the high speed and adjustment right. The third came from a different source and I couldn’t adjust low speed! Re-rebuild the Kohler carb and it’s not happy either. Take care of your fuel systems, run them dry and find ethnoal free fuel!

The 3000 series took over for the 1997 models. The cyclops series ended at that point.
