Some more photos to share... Last week the belt shield came in and I was able to paint it along with the snow blower chute and a few other parts. The shield did not come with hardware, and the longest bolt I could find was too short. I ended up using threaded rod instead. The problem with the threaded rod is that the top of the belt has to rub against it and would trash the belt in a short time. What I did was to go all out and made some sleeves on my lathe. I had to make the back one a little shorter because of the "deluxe muffler" bolts on to one of the holes and has a thicker bracket. After the sleeves were turned and bored, I cut the threaded rod to length and attached the shield with some nice stainless washers and acorn nuts.

By the way, I know the pedal attachment should be painted red, but I just really don't like the way they look done in red. I am also positive the only reason they were red, is that the blower as painted all red and they just shot it the same color. I may of done the belt shield in gray if I had it when I painted the gray stuff, but I really kind of like it painted up red.

Here is a photo of the sleeves, and a custom sleeve I turned for where the cables mount to the blower housing. On my older style chute, there was just a 1/4"-20 nut welded to the chute. Because you can't let the bolt go past the chute or it binds it up, there was very little to hold the cables securely. I am also running a larger plastic coated cable, so this was made so the bolt would lock tight against the nut, and not have to "squeeze" the cables. This also allows the cables a little movement.

Here's a photo of the blower chute parts that were painted up too. These are from my "good blower" that were already sandblasted and in primer. Because the top deflector was missing from the blower I bought from Alex, I decided it was better to just paint these up so I have nice smooth paint.

Tomorrow I will try to get the chute all in place and upload a photo... Getting closer now!

Nice looking new place you have there. Love the house. The paint job you're doing looks great too. Good to have you back around.

Looking good. I like the extension on the PTO pedal.
I hope you get some seat time on this winter.

I always wondered what the pedal extention was for.... got one with a box of parts one time having never seen one on a tractor.

Mac... That extension has to be used for the blower, it's where the rod that engages the blower belt connects to. I still like it in gray much more though!

Here is a photo with the rod hooked up, and a few of the blower chute all set up and looking pretty along with a few other detail shots for you all.

I re-used the original toothed washers and the rest is stainless steel hardware. The stainless fender washer was coated with a special white grease

Wow!! That is coming along really nice. Now all you need is some snow. I just mounted the blower on my AMF 1010. Do you happen to know the length of the drive belt for the blower? Mine didn't come with one.

I have been just spotty at best posting here lately, but get to read some. The pics you post help me learn more about my MF12. My snow thrower is different, the brochure says MF620. I still won't be using it this winter but maybe next.

Later---DAC

Hey, I am very sorry I am just getting back to you now!  (Christmas..8 kids and a dog... you know!)  Anyway, I just went out and checked the belt info I smartly saved!  I picked up the belt at Tractor Supply, it's a 1/2" Kevlar V belt that is 64" long.  (pn: 44-61046)

 

Also, but reading the manual, you fine tune the adjustment for belt stretch with the lower mount arms.  You can rotate the tilt forward and backward to keep the correct tension.

I would put money on you having the new design MF-620 blower.  My style is the early style that ran the drive off the engine pulley itself.  The newer style was a full redesign and even had a much larger under carriage that ran the belt off the PTO jack shaft itself.  If I am correct that new mount system made it so much easier to remove the frame bracket and mount things like the mower deck back on.  I think the mounting system is far superior than the early style, but I like the look of the older style better.

 

If you need some photos, I have a bunch of photos of that style blower and how it mounts saved on my hard drive.

Here is a pic of the brochure and the thrower. It will require a thorough rebuild as it has been stored outside for many years. For now I push snow with a blade on my MF8E. Of course it all depends on if we ever get enough snow to justify starting a tractor! I will get ahold of you if pics are needed. I believe I have all the mounting hardware too.

 

Thanks---DAC
