Even in my best days I couldn't lift this deck.  But then I once did lift an Allis 620 mower deck and set it on the back of my trailer.  This one, like the Allis deck is awfully heavy built!

I lifted my SIM 4140 deck once up onto a couple pipe stands to repair it. I never did it again, man are they heavy!

I have to service the 61" deck on the Grasshopper at church, it pivots up and locks which is nice, but I have to use a 8'- 2x4 to get it up in the air. Either that or I use a come along and chain from rafter, that thing is heavy.

Daniel,

I've never used the EZ stuff but I have found that Rustoleum POR primer is really good for under coating decks. I have been tempted to try the EZ stuff... I'm rebuilding the T1600 deck so this might be a good time to do so.

 

What lift do you have in your shop?

Rust convertor is good stuff. Last year when I was filling in as shop foreman at a rebuild shop I found 4 gallon jugs of rust convertor sitting in the junk pile. They wanted to get rid of it but couldn't throw it in the dumpster. So I volunteered to take it home.

I gave it to dad and he did the mower deck in it. Then coated it with paint. Most of the paint is gone but under the paint you can still see the black of the rust convertor.

I don't know what brand this stuff is. Plain white jug with rust convertor in red letters on it.

The O-rings Kubota sent for the F3060 pivot were the wrong ones, but I think the old ones will seal fine with the new bushings.  Got them installed, and when I slid it up onto the O-rings, they went in snug, and I had them lubed with gear oil.  I told the parts guy there was a serial number break online, and it said to call, but he couldn't find it and went with the only numbers he had.

The mail hasn't ran today, so maybe I'll get the deck parts today.  Hoping to button this machine up tomorrow.

Kubota deck parts didn't come today.  Looks like the old O-rings will do fine.  Placed a paper towel under the pivot joint, and not a bit of oil leak after a few hours, not even weepage.  Before it would let out a drip every few minutes.  The headlight glass was busted out and a new assembly is $85, so no way buying new.  I found 2 plastic lens that are the same size out of a Simplicity Sunstar, so I used adhesive caulking to glue them to the reflector.  The original glass was put in with silicone, so this should do fine.  The headlight bulb holder was shot too, so I also used the Sunstar bulb base.  Need to get me a good LED bulb to go in it if I ever truly need it.  Mainly I just wanted a lens in it just to look better.

  Used my pallet forks to load most of the old milk parlor steel on the trailer.  All the small stuff I'll have to gather in the loader bucket, then dump it into the load up front, where I left a little space.

  Dad's ostomy supplies arrived, so got him squared away this afternoon.  The grass is starting to really green up already!

I knew my neck gives me lots of pain, but I must be even worse than I allowed myself to think. Reason I say this is because I applied for disability just 9 weeks ago, and just found out that I am already approved! :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana: :dancingbanana:
They never asked for anything more, so my medical records got me approved in blazing speed. I am so relieved, but at the same time, it kinda makes me feel worse off physically than I already felt. Everyone warned me about not hearing a word for at least 3 months, and then I'd likely have to appeal and appeal to get approved, but just 9 weeks? Wow, excited, relieved, and in a weird way kinda feeling down all at the same time. But this is so good to have it behind me. Won't get the first check till July it says, but I'm ok till then.
