Yes but they are rough and the standard rims don't accept the average gt wheel weights

I like the Sterling Yellow. I hope you get the hubs figured out.

Those new meats are mean looking. Will they not fit on the 4 lug cub rims?

Drilling holes for the weight bolts. The valve stem is awful close you the bead as well. I wonder if they make 5 lug hubs off another model that would fit this.

I do believe I burnt the rear end up. Alot or heat alot of whining this may be the end of this pretty thing. Off to storage she goes.

I'm wondering if you've got a blockage in there somewhere. I suppose it could've given up, but it had been a real workhorse for you up until now?

If it is the end, Thats a shame. At least she had one more glory ride.

It was whining hard and I pushed it harder. Tires should spin. Traction should be the limiting factor not a week hydro

I am with Alan on this one.  I don't know the situation you had today but I would not be so quick to condemn it.  Maybe the filter plugged up and is bypassing or it has some other issue going on.  You did just change all the fluids and filter in it did you not?

 

Give us a run down on what exactly happened with it and maybe we can help you diagnose it.  You say it was whining and running hot, what happened next?  Did it just quit moving?  Details we need to figure it out.  It may yet be something very simple.

 

I can tell you my 107 with the wheel weigths on it will NOT spin here at our plowday very easy.  I can make the hydro growl pretty good and kill the engine if I try.

 

Keep your chin up and lets figure this out.

I was plowing a field that has never been plowed so the sod was thick. I started out doing ok and I could tell it was pulling hard. I was harder on it than in sure it could handle but I really wanted to see what it would do. The more it bogged down the more it whined. It got weaker and weaker with every pass. Eventually it would do anything. I rolled it in the truck and brought it home. I let it cool down and tried it. It sounds fine. It will lift the plow if I pull up with my hand as I lift the hydro lever. Steering doesn't have the turning power it had. It will move a little in forward and hardly at all in reverse. I changed the fluid and filter months ago when I got it. I changed the filter tonight and the fluid looked and smelled ok.

Maybe a blockage or something in the pump so it's not pushing/building pressure?

I think you should do like you said Saturday, put it away for a while out of sight, work on the Snapper. Maybe good for ya to leave it be for a bit and get back on it later.
