Got the plow close to being adjusted and installed a homemade hydro lever

Found the old brake band and got it installed on the 702. Will be good for now. Didn't know I kept it when I took it off.

Is the regulator grounded good?

 

I cleaned the plows up and coated them with grease so they would be ready for another plow day!

Yea, I even ran a ground wire from the housing mounting bolt to the frame. Hey, the regulators are only 40 yrs old, what can I expect?

Going to buy an Onan 20 amp new one and try my luck. If not, then flywheel will come off and check wiring.

Took some time to work on my Massey 12 Hydro today.  The lift arm release button needed a new spring.  The thumb button is supposed to screw off, but it was pretty firmly rusted.  However, using the tactics I've learned on this site, I used my Oxy-Acetylene torch to heat the button red hot two or three times.  Then, it just screwed right off.  After removing the old broken rusty spring, I had to find a replacement.  Finally found something that worked and put it back together.

Just got this thing Friday for 150. Have changed the oil, put in new fuel lines, patched the fuel tank, and got it running/driving (kinda). The rocker cover breather was backwards,so it was puking oil everywhere. Turned that around and no more oil leak. Tried to adjust the governor and carb in the dark tonight... Think I made it worse, looks like a diesel when you up the throttle. Needs a battery, sucks when it dies half way across the yard and have to push it back to my jeep to start it again. Carb is a #30, not original to the motor AFAIK. Half way on the throttle lever is full throttle, dont know what the deal with that is. Needs a spark plug, air filter, and other misc stuff. Its been abused. Hoping to get it running good before I leave for Iowa this weekend, dont want to have to come back in November and screw around with it in the cold, bought it so I could plow the driveway. e8e2umyn.jpgy8ydedy9.jpg

I swapped out back tires between the 300 and the 140, then took the deck off the 140.  Then I bolted on the weight bar/bumper to the front of the 140 and added suitcase weights, then I  hooked up the hitch, then hooked up the plow.  it's time to run the plow thru my garden!

I made a grille for the #2 FF. It's not the same material, but does dress the front some.

Now see if you can guess what this will be. Hint: those at plow day will remember I said I would build one.

Worked on Clyde today.
null_zps7fc9fdb5.jpg

I changed the fuel pump, cleaned the carb bowl, and main jet and replaced the intake gasket. I cranked her up and she started very easily. No more bubbles in the fuel line coming from the fuel pump and she seems to be running much better after warm up where before it it had a constant miss. I suspect the gasket was the source of the miss. I have been struggling with the K341 since the day I bought it. I may go out., put the mower on it and see how it does pulling a load. If its strong again I'll put it back in service so that I can sideline Sweet Allis for service so I can change out the shuttle planetary gear drum.

I am puzzled...What is this large external "c" clip doing in a sealed bag with other parts for a "K" series fuel pump?

I hauled my MF1650 and traded for a frankentractor. Frankie started life as a 3200 series Cub and has a nice Kohler twin that I have plans for as well as power steering. I'll miss not being able to bring the old 1650 back to life but I NEED the engine more than I need another project.

Ok Kenny, you are going to have to fill me in. What does it do? Looks like a top link anchor.

Yep. The FF's only have one hole for the top link.(See last pic above) With the top link I have, it is screwed all the way together for the 12" 3-point plow. I am hoping by having 3 holes, I can have a bit more adjustment left. The extra 2 holes are lower, but should 'stretch' the top link out. Won't know until I get it on and try it out. The top hole in the 'new' anchor will still be real close to where the single hole is now.
