As promised here are some pictures of tonights tilling with the Homelite T-16H (Bob), and the Simplicity (to be named later) at my BILs Mothers house. Both tractors ran great. Both tillers performed flawlessly. The tiller on the Simplicity has been sitting unused since 1998. A few new bolts on it and a good greasing and it is working well. This is the first time either tractor has had a tiller on them. I have one question though. Both of our rear lifts had slipped out of the hitch???? Is this common for this type of rear lift or did we just not have the collars tightened enough?? Any thoughts?? Thanks. Roger.DSCF4165.JPG DSCF4173.JPG DSCF4176.JPG DSCF4177.JPG DSCF4172.JPG

Roger, those look like they were doing a great job.  That soil looks pretty good there too.  Thanks for those great photographs.

Nice tractors. I'm not sure what you mean by slipping out of the hitch but nothing like that happened on my Simplicity while tilling.

Collar tightened? Isn't there a hole through it for a pin?

Where the rear lift quadrant fits in teh hitch with the collars on each side it shaifted to the left on both tractors.DSCF4116.JPG In this picture you can see the two silver collars on the right and left that hold the rear lift in place. Both had slipped to the left and teh end of the rod came out of the hole on the hitch. We might not of had the collar on the left with the step tight enough. Just wondering. Thanks. Roger.

No holes that I saw. I will have to look at it closer tomorrow. I think we just didn't get the collar tight enough. Thanks.

Oh, I get it. One of mine was broken when I got mine and had to be replaced.

Nice to see your tractors and tillers doing such a good job!

 

You just didn't get the collar screws tight enough Roger. There aren't any holes in the lift shaft.

 

I noticed, in your pic of the rear of your tractor, that the lift shaft wasn't flush with the outside of the right upright bar, as it was intended to be.

Now I understand and can say that has never happened to me. If the grub screws won't hold try drilling an indentation into the shaft for the screw to seat into. That should keep them from sliding sideways.
