Re: Dozer blade 1872

This is what Tom and I were calling different "strap / bracket" rockshaft thing. From the picture it looks easy to make? But it's heavy gauge steel and it's offset...so not too easy.

Re: Dozer blade 1872

Looks ok. It's gonna need paint...and a cuttin edge. I think guys are making those...or you can probably make one yourself. I had a nephew with a mill make one with the factory slots for the carriage bolt head. I don't know if anything that can make a square hole in steel so you could just drill and...

I was thinking the same thing steve. I remember one of my first utube videos ever watched was that Cub cadet with the turbo... where he throttles it up and down a few times. Dave's video reminded me of that.

You might want to Google a wiring diagram. What you said doesnt sound right as I know the battery neg (black) goes right to the frame and that ground cable is only like 12 inches long. Maybe to a battery tray bolt? The red pos goes right to the solenoid right next to the battery. Then a red cable go...

I would love to get a factory hydraulic set up for the 127.. but yeah they are pricey. My father had one on his 126 back in the day. Then he got a dual spool from a fork lift at Budd and we had power up .. and sideways. That was living! On my 127 I have a (as joe calls it) "q36" blower. :lol: . I li...

Welcome. Nice job on the 147! You picked a good one..and a little bit rare of a cub. I'm not sure of the production numbers but based on my radar they seem less than many others. I really like the 147s. I think they have great style! For you being in ny you should look for a blower. The single stage...
