pulled the engine out of the B110 and cleaned out the mouse house and dirt . reconnected ,soldered and shrink tubed the magneto wire the po had cut .got it back in . found some mystery parts under the engine the cage nuts for the hood and the screw for the wire harness . and one two inch long L shaped bracket thats black . cant figure out where it goes .. under the left rear engine mount bolt maybe ? I did have to hold it down with a screw driver to tighten . it runs but I think it needs a condensor ( I can see sparks at the points and it missfires a tiny bit .

Was using the Roper 18T and discovered the hydropower loss issue I have been chasing.
I thought it was the pump, seems to be an intermittent slipping belt.
No squeal, not stalling the belt, just slowing under load.
Tightened and will try it tonight.

Also, changed the rear shoes on it and repaired a thorn puncture in the front tire/tube.

Snapped a mower deck draft arm in half tonight, the ones on the G152 are home-made. Fired up the diesel generator/welder, and got it fixed. The generator battery had to be charged up, it's been since winter the last time that ran.

The weld on the mower deck draft arm is holding fine. Blew the lower radiator hose, though.

Three mowing machines, none currently operational. Yee-ha.

Found a hose that is close but bends the wrong way. Using a 1" x 3" coil spring inserted into the hose where it wants to collapse. Wish me luck!

you need to cut the hose & put a peace copper pipe & clamps in to it so you can turn the bend the right way round to stop hose stress

While mowing my yard this morning, my pto locked & killed the engines.  I heard the pto belts squeal when it happened.  I took off the pto shaft to the deck & engaging the pto still kills the engine.  Apparently I have locked jack shaft bearings.  Not feeling quite up to getting into it right now, so I'll mow with the F935 till I'm up to it.
