Today I was going to mount the linear actuator that I have on the 1220 to raise and lower implements. I hurt my shoulder at work and its been a little painful to do it manually. But I could not get it to work without cutting some tin...:mad2: And I'm not willing to do that so instead I mounted a ATV winch under the seat and ran the cable to the lift arm, It seems to work really well. I still need to tuck the wires away but here are some pics.100_2764.jpg Posted Image

I went out a played with this for a while today, its great I LOVE IT.... so much better than the manual lift, and all I had to buy was a couple crimp connectors had the winch sitting in the shop for the last few years. I'm really pleased with how it works. I will be sure to update any changes or problems I encounter.

I like your method to raising and lowering your implements on your 1220. I am thinking that may be an inexpensive way to update my 1220 to make it easier to raise and lower the snowblower.

Was wondering if you have down a compression test on it? It sounds like it wants to start but if it is lacking in compression then it won't draw in enough fuel/air mixture to run. When was the last time it ran? Maybe try a new spark plug. That is what I have to offer from what I can tell from your video. Good luck and keep us posted when you find out why it wouldn't start.

Try taking out the spark plug and pouring a small amount of gas in the Sarkplug hole.
I know someone had a JD 318 and it sounded the same way. When they helped it out by adding gas to the sparkplug hole if fired right up and was fine after that.

Sounds like you're blowing back thru the carb? That first set of noises i thought I heard a little blow back in there.
If compression checks out good... the only unmentioned thing I can think of is RPM on the starter, if the starter was turning over faster, it'd stay engaged a little longer & maybe let you get her running. I see battery cables in there, do you have a good battery to set in & try again?

I got the bearings for my snowblower! I have the shop furnace running to warm the garage up and will be down there shortly to put it back together. The new bearings are just a tad bit thinner than the original. I think one or two 3/4 inch machinery washers should take up the extra space on the shaft. I'll let you know.

Ryan & I got the last motor bolt in the MF10. We also finished installing the shifter.

Ever have a simple job that made itself much harder than it needed to be? :wallbanging:

After that, we filled the rear end up... 80/90 gear lube runs slow when cold.

Then we rigged up a gas can & started it up. I think the carb'll be fine but we need to adjust the belts as
the clutch won't & it won't go all the way into park yet. Time to read up.

I welded an old engine block to a bracket and bolted it to a tractor for weight. Then I started building a new snow plow for the tractor with the engine block. So now I have 2 plow tractors, one with a tranny for weight and one with an engine. Now to finish the second plow.
