I acted on one of DanO's videos for making a david bradley more practicle. I had an old toro snowblower with a tecumseh engine that i used so i put the" DanO air filter on it " , I also put a handier valve on it for changing the oil, and a chain to pull the pin when i want to swivel the blade, The bar i used goes through a 1" ring stay and has a piece of 3/4 inch conduit as a handle, and i also mounted a tool box...... Thanks again DanO

Neat idea on the air filter as well.

I couldn't help but notice... What model Bolens is lurking in the background? :D

It's a 600 model and either a 1963 or 1964 not sure on the year.

Looks great! Mr. Dan'o should be given much credit for taking the time to post great videos of his ideas and helps on the DB for the practical DB users. I'd like to see us start a thread on the modifications and reproduction parts people have made for their DBs to make them more useful or to just keep them going. Maybe after Christmas I will have time to get some pix and post a couple of the small things I did, unless some one else can get it going sooner.

Now there are some good ideas, took it from a hard to use unit to very practical and all without major modifications.

YES, Mods are best when they don't destroy the original equipment. You may one day want to restore it.
