You need to get a case switch that one looks like a real early after market switch for old ford pickup. Your key comes out at the right place for that switch like mac said left one more time is acc without ignition circuit energized.I'm sure someone mentioned Brian of salem power contact him he will get the right switch for your tractor I bought one off him for my 79 224 case.Case switches are a little different than other light on switches.Roger...

Thanks. I sent an email off to Brian a few days back. He supplied me with many of the parts I've uses thus far in my snowcaster refurb.

By the way gopher, welcome to GTTalk. What do you have for a tractor? This is a great place to learn and explore the world of GTs.

Well, today was a real learning experience. I am proud to say I now know a thing or two about gears, mechanical reduction of RPMs and humility. I found out today that my airplane flap motor will NOT work for the purpose I bought it for. I contacted the company today to determine the RPMs and this is what I learned:



motor RPM

C301002-0101 is now C301002-0309 actuator assembly and is our D148-00-1 actuator assembly. The motor is 12 VDC motor & at no load a maximum RPM of 6300 plus/minus standard motor manufacturing guide lines.

Thanks,

M. J. Hindman
Engineering Specialist

As you can guess, trying to reduce the speed of a 6,300 RPM motor in the type of space and way I'd be trying to is impossible. Back to the drawing board. Chalk this up to a great learning experience.

Heck, attach it to the side of the blower. It'll shoot the snow so far it won't matter which way it's pointed.

My decals from Maple Hunter came in the mail last night and I promptly applied them to the Snowcaster.

I sent an email to Carrie, at Maple Hunter, and from my email she mailed out the decals to me with an invoice enclosed. They were great to work with. I'm not sure if it's kosher or not to post but I thought others might find it helpful to review the booklets that accompanied my order.

If I need (for one reason or another) to remove these please let me know or if they should go in another place on the site let me also know and give me directions. Thanks.

I'd be looking for a power window motor myself. If I come accross one I'll rig it up. I'm not unsatisfied with the manual chute turn.

Wish I had a 48" blower not a 38", darn front tires rub the blower near the sprocket on the right side. A little wider and I'm sure it would clear ok.

Not sure what tractor your blower on if on case I have not heard of tire rub with the 38 just to narrow for rear wheels .They say to add wings.Check your rims to see there not on backwards

Tires are oversized. 18x8.50x8. Needed them to level it out with the 9.5-16 rear ags.
