Re: Stripped spark plug in head

Matt, We had a K161 in a 71 that we used to work on for a guy. He used it really hard and mowed like 2 acres and this little 71 was his only mower. It may even be the 71 that my Dad now owns. Anyhow this guy was bringing this tractor in every couple months with a blown head gasket. Each time we sand...

Re: 451 Snow Blower and a 2072 tractor

Eden, Apparently CCC never offered the 50" deck on the tractors with the larger PTO. I looked at the parts list for the 54" deck and it has the input pulley on the center spindle just like the 50" does. So if the lower sheave is the same diameter then it should work. If you have the rebuildable spin...

Re: Stripped spark plug in head

Jess, That is why all the plug manufacturers recommend to go by their application listings rather than cross referencing. Sometimes when you cross-reference they can jump heat ranges because some companies don't offer the same heat ranges as others. Ben, I know a lot of guys warm the engine, then le...

Re: Plastic grill housings

You could also splice it with a piece of sheetmetal. Put sheetmetal on both sides of the break and attach it with pop rivets or screws. I don't think any kind
of glue or epoxy will stick to it very well.

I'm sure there are some folks who don't like the new format. I'm sure there are also plenty of guys who haven't heard about us yet as well.

One thing I have found with the new format, is that I can keep up with the new posts while spending much less time doing it.

Re: Mounting Model 451 Snowblower on Super

Bryan,
The 1782 was built both before and after the change to the larger clutch. Most of the other models started and ended with the pto changeover. So if you want the larger clutch, order the one for the higher serial #.

I didn't check with Bieler's yet. The other place I was talking about is Fast Track trailers in the old ambulance garage. I stopped and looked at theirs one day

Re: Fired up the 2082

Ken, What all did you do to it? On a fresh rebuild I like to put them under a good load by letting the grass grow tall then mowing it fairly fast. It is a good idea to vary the load as well. This forces the rings against the cylinder wall and helps them seat in. I run that way for 5 hours then chang...

Jerry, If you want it to run for a long time, I would replace the rod, the rings and the piston pin clips. I would measure everything while it's apart to see if it's within specs. Then if it is out of spec, replace what needs replacing. If your budget is really tight, only do the rod, but it may use...

Re: Mounting Model 451 Snowblower on Super

I guess having multiple tractors is why I would lean towards trying to change the pulley on the blower over changing the PTO clutch. If I had 2 or 3 tractors with 5/8" PTO pulleys I would go that route so that all my tractors and attachments would be interchangeable. Otherwise, you'd have to dedicat...

It will also depend on whether or not you have the slotted lift straps on your Brinly hitch. If you have the slotted ones they will allow the plow to float so you can let the lift handle locked in a notch. If you have the straps with holes, leave the lift handle float. As long as the soil isn't too ...

You are correct, it was the rag joint coupler that I drilled. And I had forgotten that the CV couplers were hard. In fact I think they are made from powdered metal. You can't weld to them either.
