Got around to RED's Spring service.
Added "00" grease to the transaxle
Cleaned the Air filter
Sharpened the blades
Changed the oil
Lubed the steering
Adjusted the governor
and checked the LED and 1157 lamps

Sounds like it's ready to mow!

Switch cranks from the Briggs 23D to the 233431, bolt into Allis Chalmers B-10, run in, called it a day and ran to Greenfield for the evening.

I finally got to work on my Woods 1850 some last night. Got the driveshaft fabricated and am about 75% finished with the engine mount. I hope to be driving it this weekend!

Brought the Toro GroundsMaster 322D up today. Time for a little Spring maintenance. It has a new air filter and an oil change so far. I have a few more things including cleaning wiring connections.

Put them in the back shed for the summer.

 

This afternoon I washed the 314 & then worked on the accessory wiring on the Gator, so I can use the spot sprayer this spring.  ~~  Lowell

Lawn Warrior day

 

Started by washing Hulk II and BMP.

Then added more inside roof insulation panels.

Then Moved the roll up door threshold 1” back and added plumbers putty underneath.

Watched NASCAR.

Then Took RED out for a full mow. He worked great, and I think I shaved 45 minuets off the mow time when I adjusted the RPM to 3550.

Everyone cleaned and put away.

Kicking back with a cold one watching Animation Domination.

It was time to do some work on the Massey 8 G.  Day before yesterday, I helped my boys replace the transmission which had stripped a gear pretty badly.  Fortunately, this happened at the end of mowing season last fall, so I was able to take a bit of time finding a replacement axle on eBay.  Anyway, got the replacement axle in, and instead of filling it with 90 wt, I put in some 5W-20 engine oil and ran it around cutting the yard.  After everything was warmed up, I changed the oil in the transmission and the engine.  Had to use some ingenuity to avoid taking the deck mount off again.  Got a 2 liter pop bottle and cut a hole in the bottom, drained the engine oil into that, then removed the bottle and drained it into the waste oil receptacle.

Installed the new side panels on my 425 along with the new decals, removed the hood (needs to have new studs put in it.) took one of the non OEM headlights trying to figure out how they were jerry rigged in there and broke one of them in the process but no biggie because they are coming off. Took the air filter housing off and cleaned it up, washed the prefilter and reinstalled all of it.  Thinking about selling is as I have found another 425 with only 197 hours on it and looks show room new..............getting that time of year to start getting everything ready for Spring and Summer duty. This has been my dedicated "mowing" machine.

Been getting the mowers set up for the Spring season. Got the Ford R-11 up and going, but a fellow came by and made an offer I couldn't refuse. Sold the R-11, my little Ford trailer, and a 42" deck for a few dollars. Waiting on parts for the JD 68 to show and it will be ready. Got out the little MTD mower and have it ready. Put a new ignition switch in the Toro and it isready. All have been greased and most have oil changes. Just normal Spring stuff.

Boring stuff, reconditioning the deck on my Simplicity/Craftsman zero turn. It's 10 years old and the bearings are still good, the way the blade arbors/spindles are made on this, they're rebuild able and don't look like any I've ever owned before. A lot better than that Murray junk they used later on some zero turns.
