Broke the tradition last night. Started prepping the snow equipment without any snow flying.

And finished a week and a half later. Still with no snow.

Several day project.

Doing maintenance on the Speedex 1631. Seemed to be leaking some oil from the output shaft on the transmission so I yanked it and got a new seal to put in.

Noticed the chain and transmission sprocket are well worn (transmission - > differential on this tractor is chain drive). McMaster has the chain and transmission sprocket on the shelf so I ordered those. I'm sure the differential sprocket has some wear too, but because it is so much larger not enough wear to be noticeable. Since replacing that would require some machining I'm leaving it alone. Hopefully the new chain and transmission sprocket will extend the life a LONG time.

I also ordered replacement brake pads for it (it's got a disc brake). The way the caliper mounts part of the pad is off the edge of the rotor and they wear funny. I was planning to shim the mount on reinstall but I noticed this morning that the mount bracket leans away from the rotor. I presume it came from the factory that way because there is really no way to bend it accidentally. I've got to decide whether to heat and bend the bracket or just shim the caliper.

Tried to get a rough running Tecumseh to run smooth. Once again it got the best of me and I decided to wait for a warmer day.

Starter has been squealing o the k series 16hp Kohler on the c160 snow blower rig. Hard to start too.
Pulled the starter and cleaned the commutator, oiled the bushings and used a center punch to swell the bushing on the bendix end.
Not a permanent fix, but a stop gap. Also set the points. Starts easier. They must've been at 25 or 30 thou
Yesterday, we pulled the rear end out of a b112 to replace the one in mine.
I horse traded for it and will be delivering the rest to its owner soon.

All this was in the garage. It was -2 in there yesterday morning... thank goodness for the torpedo heater. Got it up to 20.

Installed the newly rebuilt generator/starter in the  67 JD RF 112  after having it rebuilt.  The first time that the tractor has been all together and in running condition since I purchased it 4 years ago.  Many issues had surrounded it when I bought it. I got real tired of constant problems,spending money and time on it so it was shun to the shed for two years.

Continued working on the 67 RF 112 today. Painted the back wheels but may be rearranging wheels
With another RF and putting the tiller on back of this one Insted of the 110 it's on now.
It's the first time I used the TSC brand and the color called "New John Deere Yellow"
The colors matches very well with Mother Deere's and is much cheaper.

Helped my nephew with his Gravely 524 today. Had little to no spark. A bit of tweaking to the points and it drove away from us. Guess it was still in gear. Had a happy nephew then. He had been working on it for a bit.
