Well I got one of the side covers on (the easy one) I am glad this is a hobby and I’m not making a living at it, I would starve. Old mount was too short and had to lengthen it, had issues with getting the weld to hold, I was trying to minimize panel warping. A little hammer and dolly work should make it nice to paint.

Does anyone know where I can find a couple of these? They are 3/8 inch bolt.

That looks good! Now for the fun side.
The adjusting nuts are available through New Holland. Part # JAC358881, $13.31 each. They are rather proud of them.

They must be gold plated, electronically automatic self adjusting at that price. I'll keep looking.

Russ, my 165 has that cutout.
New Holland is proud of their parts, for sure. If anyone finds those elsewhere, let me know. I could use a couple.

Well, I was at it again.

Maybe not as nice a factory, but who's counting?

Russ, Don't know what the purpose of the cutout is other than it lets the weather in to rust out the shelf above the muffler. PO made a new shelf in mine. Yours must be a rare model.

Next, Fix that deck.

That looks good, Bmerf! Glad you found the outer garments for it. I haven't figured out the hole either. Maybe to let out some of the heat?

No Russ, the hole is on the bottom of the panel where it slips over the adjustment stud in the front. The original holes were in bad shape so I simply welded a washer over the hole to reinforce it. Works great.

The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.

The Good,

Well finally got a day off, and finally mowed the entire yard with her. But not without issues. Sharpened the blades and installed new belts. Reinstalled battery, hit the key, and

The Bad,

Nothing. With all my work getting the side panels to fit. Unbeknown to me, I moved the wiring and it fell apart. The PO had improved the factory harness by fixing problems with solderless connectors. Only problem was he didn't understand the concept or didn't own the proper tool, simply inserted wires and taped them up. The wires fell apart leaving me with a questioning attitude. An hour latter no problem, (will eventually have to fix.)

The Ugly,

Twenty minutes into the mow job, mower quits. Motor is so hot you can't touch it. The air temperature is only 89 degrees, cool this summer. My nice new side panels have caused the machine to vapor lock. Probablly the reason the panels where missing in the first place. Allow to cool off, remove panels, and finish yard. Ugly but done.


Next drink, I mean think about what to do.

Have you pulled the tins off the engine and checked for debris clogging the cooling fins? Has to be a reason it is getting that hot besides the side panels.

All tins have previously been removed and fins cleaned. I feel the exhaust that blows down in front of the engine, as you drive forward, this hot air is sucked up by the engine fan/intake. The fan/intake (with the sides on) can only get its air from under the machine. I don't know for sure, but seems strange that after cooldown and removal of sides, no issues. Any help would be appreciated.

Do you have this upper firewall (Item 31 &31a):

It looks like it is supposed to direct the exhaust out the front. Maybe Russ can help us on this.
