International Harvester M1 Garand

I picked this up in the mid 90s for cheap from the DCM ( formerly Civilian Marksmanship Division ). This was when it was a total "crap shoot" on what you ended up with. In my paperwork I included a hand written note asking for either an International Harvester or a Harrington and Richardson and than...

Re: Hardened driveshaft?

Glad I could help. They make fancy file kits that will only cut in specific hardness ranges but they are a few $$$ Although everybody wants "super tough" and high strength material, sometimes it's better to use something on the "softer" side as that material absorbs shock better and will slightly de...

Re: Hardened driveshaft?

Ken He said the finish was not polished. He also said something about the hardening was 1/32. Something else about the holes shink a bit so the spiral pins might be hard to install. I’ll try the file test tomorrow. Do the file test. If it cuts, you'll be fine. If it "zings" and knocks the edge off ...

Re: 147 Drive Shaft Part Identification

I can make a new driveshaft for you. Also check the rear pump coupler for excessive wear where the 3/8" driveshaft diameter fits in. At the engine, check to see if the drive hub is still in good shape. Once the driveshaft starts wobbling, it wears the slots. It would be more cost effective to replac...

Re: '66 Cub 102 questions

Pretty much any NF attachment will fit. You can ever use the quick attach attachments but you will have to bolt them on ( no big deal, the holes are the same). One winter I had an engine problem with my 125 and put my QA-42 snow thrower on my 122. Bolted it up and off I went.

If decide you want to upgrade to a CV driveshaft, I make the adapters you'll need plus can shorten the CV driveshaft to the length you specify.
