Specifically the name of the dirty rotten so-n-so who designed the shaft of my Allis B212.
Spent an hour just changing the starter belt this evening when it broke.
At one point, I was muttering "under" my breath and Ryan chuckled... And said "Well, there's a new one... :rolling:

Careful. Don't be uttering threats. In this day and age, one could get in trouble.

I did a little research, The Designers name was  Alan B. Angry. But I believe His helper Wi Foo Yu influenced the design as well? :D :rolling:

Rah Zell  Frack  usually works when I am too lazy to be creative like Alan . But I do remember a few words and phrases from the 60's.

You could have the shaft off my Massey if ya want too!!!

I don't remember the shaft being that bad on my dad's HB212, but then we had to pull motor.

 

I just changed the drive belt on a JD LT133, had to remove half the freaking underneath just to get it off, pulleys, brackets, springs, steering linkage.....not in happy place by the time I was done.

 

Got another one...the Ford engineer who thought it was okay to mount the oil filter right about the starter so all teh oil ran down  and covered it.
