Got the pulleys figured out on the Sears lt11 and got the rear end in place. Had to move it forward to work with the original belt...

Just need to put tires back on then should be ready for the road

Hooked up the clutch after a test run (see the "what did you do with your tractor" thread) and then started swapping stock tires for atv tires off of a junk atv behind the school

Sears lt11 from the scrapyard needs some ignition work... For now I'll jump it at the starter

Cut up the stock rims to make some adapters to fit on some atv rims I "borrowed" from a junk atv behind the shop...

Gonna have some decent atv tires now!

Got my old Cub Cadet 1864 running, turned out to be a combo of cold, weak battery and flooding. Cleaned the plugs and they were firing fine, fuel pump was working, so put it together and it fired up with the charger and booster pack on it. I knew it was weak because it would fire when I let off the key, so I added the booster pack to the mix and it started right up.
Worked on the driveway a bit basically just to charge it and run it some.

I have an Ingersoll 3014 that I got last spring for cheap. It's a pretty good machine but for several small issues. The Walbro carb on the M14 Kohler is real special. I have to crank it a lot to get it to start and of course there is no high speed adjustment. I've gotten a Kohler #30 carb from Joe's Power. I stripped it down and gave the carcass to my friend, Ken who has a 5gl. can of the old time carb dip (the stuff that will kill you if your in the same room with it). The small parts, I put in a can of the modern dip I have. After a couple of days, It hasn't even touched the paint on the shaft levers. I think I will have to use vinegar. I didn't want to hand over my small parts to Ken for fear of them getting lost(tiny springs, ball bearing and such); and I really didn't think they would be difficult to clean. I believe with the new adjustable carb and the electronic ignition the M14 will be a new animal.

My other issues are the steering and one of the mower spindles has a loose bearing. The steering is kind of hard, so I'm going to put one of those custom axle center pins in it. Case GTs have a tendency to spread the frame ears front and back of the axle, so the axle gets loose and wobbles. The new pins are made to tighten the ears back together. Also, I'll put thrust washers on the spindles(poor man's power steering).

Changed the molasses. I mean oil, and filter in the International 234 today, smelled a bit like diesel, but full, mostly just old dirty oil. A bit of a job getting the plug out, I used the impact!Worked though, I put it back a little differently. It had a Dixon filter on it, I like them, made in USA, but hard to find locally.
A big Saturday night planned, Tombstone pizza in the oven and laundry in the washer.

Nice out today so I washed the top layer of barn dust off the Deutz-Allis Vanguard I got from Kris:  Tractors 2018 001.JPG   Tractors 2018 002.JPG

 

Probably won't get anything else done to it til spring!

These new tires are great. They chew through snow great. Can't wait to get them in the dirt.
