Re: Who's ready for Winter?

I actually don't know what model blade it is, but its not a cub blade. I can see a case emblem on it but i don't see a tag anywhere, im guessing it may have been painted over ;)

Why yes, yes i can. What your looking at in the picture is the coupling between the engine and the drive line, the bolt heads that you see touching are what hold the bushing for the end of the driveshaft and the rubber flex disk, somehow they line up just right making me wonder if there is special b...

Re: 1772 vibration

Picture of where my vibration was coming from, some how managed to get a die-grinder in there and made some space between the heads and now runs a lot smoother. I did order some new motor mounts as well to try get whats left of the vibration. hope it works those motor mounts were not cheap. :cry:

Probably a little late now but you can also convert the drive shaft on that to the CV style used on the Cyclops tractors.
