Well, spent the evening remaking the sleeve hitch mounts for my Case 442. The first set ripped the hinge pins right off at the Ball Hollow Plow day. Thanks to Daniel for welding it back it for me to at least plow the rest of the day. After looking at how I twisted them up, it was obvious I needed thicker metal to hold the 3/4 rod. Now with 3/8 steel I think they will hold. The one on the right is my old one. I tried to make it look factory. The one on the left is the remake with 3/8 steel. I don't think I will twist these up.

Did a repair on the seat pan of Gravely 8179-G. It has some cracks near the hinge bracket. The paint is in pretty good shape so I don't want to weld it and have to repaint it. If I paint the seat pan it won't match the rest of the tractor and I don't want to paint the whole tractor. I came up with a way to fix it and not paint anything. It isn't what the purists would do but I don't care just as long as it looks cool and works, then its good enough for me. I hope other people thinks it's cool looking and not tacky. Now please be honest with me, is my fix tacky?

Saturday was the day to start removing the engine in my Cub 129. The balance gears are coming out. I will not run the K301 with them in any more. I like my engine!

I worked on my belly grader today, sanding off all the loose rust and prepping for painting. I have been debating about reinforcing the pivot hole in the frame I welded shut some time ago.

I was thinking of getting a piece of steel and drilling a hole in it to accept the 5/8" pivot bolt but decided that I would try a 9/16" grade 8 flat washer and just weld it with a edge bead. First I had to move a bunch of junk just to get my welder out of the shed. Talk about needing some organizing. It was fairly neat until I cleaned out my truck. Now all I can do is stand in the door and toss it to the back and hope I don't need it tomorrow. Anyway I did a little welding despite getting one phone call after another.

Boomer approved.

BTW: for those who might want to make a smart comment, I finished the welding before I drank the "1554".
I'm just a novice (bad) welder.

Got my plow mounted correctly on my Case 444. Took it for a ride down the driveway. Everything felt good!

Got the snowblower mounted up and greased on the 107 tonite.  She is ready for the flakes to fly.

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?

That is the tool for the gas line connects to the fuel pump. It pushes the two square little buttons on each side of the connector that snaps into the fuel pump and to remove the connector from the fuel pump. I think some Kohler engines use it.   Regards Fluid

P.S. you should keep it just in case you have to remove the plastic connector from the fuel pump. Its a tool.   Fluid
