Well I did some mowing with panzer the other day and it actually
did a good jod. I need to give the blades a good sharping
and I need to level deck better but over all I was happy.
I also need to get a new fuel filter, with engine under load
from deck running fuel flow was a little slow. The reason I
rebuilt the deck first was the tractor itself is in fairly
good shape. After I gave it a good pressure washing it looked
so so. I felt that if I did the tractor first something
would come along and cause me to put the deck on hold
and before you know it years go by and deck is still on hold.
I think I'm going to pull engine off over the winter to
do a rebuild. Here a few more pictures. one is the new paint dirty
from mowing and the other two are from drive belt rubbing through
the new paint. I'm pleased over all because everything works
like it did when the original owner bought it 45 years ago.

I am going to have to put on hold any more work to the panzer
untill I finish rebuilding this to install on my
craftsman GT6000 for the winter.

I put a new fuel filter on Panzer Saturday and did some more mowing.
Tractor started running bad and stalled. After a few minutes
it I got it started and preceded to mow some more and
after about 10 minutes it stalled again. I got it restarted
and drove it to the garage for the day. Yesterday I removed
the carb to clean it out and found a few small pieces of
rubber. Ahhh! I didn't replace the 20+ year old
fuel line when I did the fuel filter. Today I replaced the
fuel line and put the carb back together and back on the engine.
It started on the first crank. I let the
engine warm up and then adjusted the carb. It was
running great so I decided to mow some more and
tractor ran great! I didn't want to stop but was getting
dark so I called it a day. Funny but mowing the grass
with the panzer is fun, at least for now. The tri
rib tires are brutal on the yard. I did mow
over half an acre and everything went well.
Funny how many of the tractors of today have 20+
hp for mowing and dozing or plowing dirt or snow blowing.
The 7 hp Briggs on this panzer did the mowing with
ease.

I bought this seat cover off of e-bay for $54. It is for a Bolens 1050.
I had to give it a try but the seat back of the new seat cover is shorter
than the Panzer seat pan. I did not want to cut the panzer seat pan
so I made a new one. I still need to weld the corners and drill mounting holes.
It will do for now.

Lookin real good. That seat cover will be sharp. Glad you like the mowing. I love mine but it has taken some work to get it to mow real well. If you ever want to put a mulch plate on, it does help to surround the blades with curved steel wherever possible to get good mulching.

Well our power is back on in our part of New Jersey but my employers power is still out
so no work this week. I have never seen anything like this. We had a few limbs bounce
off of the roof of our house but no damage. Tree limbs everywhere in my yard.
Trees down through out this area. Inlaws had a 55 + foot tree just miss
the house but it did take down some gutters and punch a 3" dia hole
in the porch roof. That tree had a ground level crotch so its two 55 + foot
trees but only right half came down. The other 55 footer with only half
of the root system left holding it is still standing and the wind is still blowing
but way less then Tuesday. Tree guy is backed up untill Monday.
On a lighter note the panzer and my other two tractors survived
unharmed. My family and I have been fortunate through this
and I feel blessed and hope our fellow New Jerseyans recover.

Glad to hear you're up and running. And it's probably better off that you couldn't get on with the power out. I woulda offered my generator for a trade for that Panzer!

fxsr55 - hopefully you are getting back to normal after Hurricane Sandy.

I had a couple of question about the operation of your mowing deck. I have a 1966 Panzer 1110 with deck (bought both this spring) and I've had two problems.

The first is that the deck sits to close to the rear wheels when it is raised and the rear wheel rub against he wooden rollers. I've adjusted the deck everywhich way - but no luck so far in terms of moving it far enough forward to get away from the rear wheels.

The second problem I have is related to disengagin the pulley that drives the belt system to the mower. When I push the rod in to move the throw out bearing backwards it oftern is stuck/jammed.

If you or anyone else reading has found a way to overcome these issues I would love toget your advice.

TGaffney, As cookiemonster said to start a new thread with your
problems more folks will see your thread and help.
some people might not see your question in the back of this
thread that might be able to help you.
As far as your deck, Pictures would be a big help to see
how deck is installed. For your deck clutch problem there should be a grease
fitting on the collar/yoke on the clutch assembly on engine crankshaft.
Try lubing that fitting. Also do you know about the web site below?

Get this manual, it has parts list with diagrams.

Got the panzer out yesterday to haul a few things out to
the back yard for storage. I forgot to turnoff the fuel shutoff
from a few weeks ago and carb dripped on to new paint.
Its just the belt guard and the paint is not going to be
new forever. I am going to be removing the engine in the next
week or so. I'm going to put in my little work shop in the basement
so I can take it apart for rebuild, cleanup and repaint.
