done a toe-in on the Rover 2 , changed the front tyres to these P3080074.JPG

 

refitted the electric ram to the push blade which works better as i changed the purchase rate for quicker lifting & lowering & removed to nudge bar from the front

I just realized - I have never installed a set of chains on a tire , until today . I put some on 'Rusty's' other set of wheels for this winter.

I was a bit worried about the traction, it gets icy on the driveway . I found a good deal on a new set of chains sooo...

Find you another set of chains and put a cross chain between the ones you have on the teractor now.  Those are vehicle chains.  For Gt's you need a cross chain on every other side link.  Remove your rubber chain tightener and tighten the chain up (after adding the extra cross chain) with the locking link.  Doing this will give you much better traction as you will have a cross bar on the surface all the time.  Been there, done that.  You are definitely on the right track by buying car chains and rebuilding them to fit your GT.  Good luck and hope you don't need them.

Not much today.  Tried to figure out why I don't have any spark on a S14D.  Instructions for checking the stator and ignition module are not for the ones I have on this engine.  Wire color code is wrong.  Still sitting with no spark.

Pulled the carb off my 4041 loader last weekend to see why gas was running out of it like a river, float was filled with gas. Waiting a replacement.

striped out this Rover i salvaged from the scrap yard last week & got some good parts from it including 3 pulley sets                   .P3160107.JPG

 

Done some work on this Rover Rancher  i bought last week  P3160111.JPG  

 

changed a tube in the rear left , replaced some bolts on the hood ,

repaired the gears on the starter & done some rewiring including where the previous owner pinched the headlight  power wire behind the starter mount ,

 

dug into my stuff & found a 11 HP cover for the engine 

which fits 10 HP                        P3160112.JPG

 

 done a toe-in on the wheels & reset the main steer rod too , adjusted the brake , replaced the throttle & governor unit on the side of the engine , tuned the carburetor ,

 

replaced the broken air filter housing unit ,changed 2 head bolts so to bolt the fuel tank mount on  

 

Now it starts & runs good for a 1970's 10 HP point type engine

Put the carb back together using a Tecumseh float in my Onan Zenith carburetor, had to file float stop column a bit to allow for the slightly smaller center hole in the float, but works great. I'm back in the front end loader business!

Did a fender swap and swapped tires for winter...now the 140 has some 26x12-12 on the rear and 18x8.5-10 on the front. Just looking into building a light bar and over the next week will be greasing and getting the 49 hooked up and greased. Oh, tried attaching the weights and need longer lag bolts.

Got the blower on the 19.9. Kind of a project, but worth it.
Also put the second weights on the rears. 240lbs in cast and almost that much in the seat. Hopefully, with chains, I can back up with the blower raised this year.
