Bought 10' of 2" square tube 1/4" wall about a month ago for $64. Also picked up 10' of 2 1/2" square tube 1/4" wall for $75. Both were welded tube. Price of steel keeps climbing up here.

That's one reason I don't build half the things I want...too expensive !!

check the mower deck on my 214 (46" deck)

it was sounding different the last time I mower

had to replace 2 spindles bearings and the main drive spindle bearing

had to go to Deere for 2 more bearings for one of the spindles

 

cleaned up the desk so that I can put some Pur15 on the deck, starting to get rust

put the Pur15 on the underside and on top in the spindle area 

 

the had a fun time removing the bearings of the spindles

 

clean up the spindles and pulleys and gave them a new coat of yellow paint

 

well put it all back together tomorrow, so the I can mower

 

I will repaint the deck this fall when the grass slow down from growing

I cleaned the spark plug.
Hey, it got it running again!

It may be a walk behind.
But, it's a powered walk behind!

Yesterday, put the solid steel 90# weights back on the JD 140H3.  Today, pulled the fender pan to replace the broken right brake pedal.

I got the carb. linkage in the mail yesterday from Joes Outdoor Power...Thanks Joe!   the W H Raider po was using a piece of 1/4-20 all thread filed down and bent in sort of a z-shape to hook up between the governor and carb.  Joe had the correct piece of linkage on his site and it worked like a champ.

  I also took the tiller off of the W H and got it listed on craigs...I have tillers on 2 tractors now and don't need a third. I had a hitch from another W H in the parts box in my shed so I put it the tractor....

Not my own. Buddy of my brother owns a landscaping company so brought his push mower and two zero turns down to service and test them out. They sure are a nice cutting machine. Checked the bushings, changed oil, cleaned them off. Got them good and running condition. Afterwards gave the 345 a shower.

Today I've been working on the adjustments for my drive belt on my Sears GT 16 Garden Tractor which is an 80's model. 

 

Trying to fix the slipping problem. I drove it around the yard today and it slipped off again. I'm sure I'll get it fixed though. I enjoy working on garden tractors so I don't mind putting the belt back on the pulleys as it doesn't come off that often.
