Kenny

How wide is the frame on your tractor where you bolted the 3-pt on?


It's 13 inches wide, same as the Massey 1650.

Maintenance day for the 2320 today. Got the hydro fluid / filter changed. Put Amsoil synthetic fluid in it. We'll see how that works out. Initially it seems quieter but I only had it running for about 15minutes. When I changed the hydro I had to remove one of the 3pt arms so I cleaned and lubed the entire hitch. Changed the fuel filter. Man there was a pile of crap in it. It's self bleeding so it started right up, ran for a few seconds, stalled and then went again after cranking for 3 or 4 seconds. Pretty painless.
Touched up some scratches on the frame of the 314 and finished filling some pitted areas on the engine side covers. They will be ready for primer soon.

Ronnie, had an idea about how that mounts. Could use that type of mount system on other brands for a 3-point.

I agree, I think it will spread to fit a frame 14" wide and maybe squeeze in to fit one 12 1/2 wide. When I pull it back off I'll check that out just to see and let you know. I don't know jack s*&t about hydraulics but the PO had mounted a valve with supply and return lines. I'm going to build a better mounting bracket (he had it mounted to the sheet metal under the fenders) and have lines made to the cylinder. Hope it all works. I put the same 3 pth on my Snapper 1600 (standard shift version of the 1650) a while back and used an electric actuator I had from a Craftsman GT6000 that was used for the deck lift/sleeve hitch lift but it is too week to lift anything other than my 10" moldboard. After I get this working correctly and get my 3 pth tiller working I plan to get a pump to install on the 1600 and hook up hydraulics to it. After all that, it'll be time to clean them up and paint.

Tinner, on your valve. Keith, (skyrydr2) mounted two valves under his fender on the 165D Ford. I don't think he has any pics posted of that setup here. He might be of some help if you need it.

Didn't get to do anything, but got the new spindle for the MTD today. It will get put in this weekend. Ordered the belts and spring for the JD 68. Looking for the snow blade for it.

Replaced the solenoid on the Cub 1210 last night, bought the same wrong switch that was already in there. Going to pick up a new switch tomorrow.

I have been slacking with updating this thread with anything I have been doing.

The other night I was working on getting the Brinly 12" 3pt plow mounted on the 1655. I had to shorten the top link since it was about 2" longer then the factory one. I had bought the shortest one I could get at TSC but it was still too long. Now I can get the plow plenty high enough off of the ground as to not worry about digging unnecessary holes. During that time though I went to start it back up and it wouldn't start which has been an issue with it for a while now but haven't had time to check in to it. I finally had the chance so I narrowed it down to a bad coil.

I am hoping the coil will be here today so I can get it back together.

Last night, I cut out the worn bar on the mower lift for the LGT 165. This morning, I cut a new piece of 3/4" and welded it in. See pic of old bar below. After the new bushings arrive, I will take the other 4 bolts out and repair as needed. Should help with all the slop out.

I threw in a couple pics of the worn shoulder bolts and bushings for grins. I will be going back with 3/8" ID X 3/4" OD bushings instead of the $18 each shoulder bolt/bushing combo. There are 8 in the mower lift. I'm not ready to spend that much. I'll just use straight 3/8" bolts.

George (NUTNDUN) and I got to do a little work in the garage today. The biggest thing we did with the Bolens was to remove the tiller from the 1000 and install a mower deck. I used the 1000 in the garden several times but it came with the smaller tiller. The Bolens 900 that I just bought had the tiller with the extension kit already mounted. I am still trying to decide which tractor to restore this winter. We need a project to work on, so George said I should soon decide so that I can start ordering gaskets,seals and whatever else may be needed.
