Well I failed!? Put the mower back on the Murray, and decided the primary belt needed replaced.

So I ordered one from the NAPA store. Got it last night and the one they got is about 1 ft too long? The one they got is 103" long.

I think the belt should be 97"?

No Joy!! Talked to Cory this morning and he is ordering two more in slightly different lengths and I'll try again tomorrow night.

Allis Chalmers 316 H

Reinstalled the gas tank , carb, gas lines, shut-off valve,battery. Only to realise that I didnt have a Fuel filter to put in there.

 

Still I couldnt stop meself and took it for a little ride around the yard. Quite surprised at the maneuvrability of this GT.

I think the welds are sloppy, and it's as crooked as Kenny's driving going past a nudist colony........

Well just got back from a 2 week vacation and went to fire all my machines up. I missed them all. Low and behold the 446 is only firing on the right cylinder. I could tell by touching the exhaust pipes. Left side was cold. Anyways figured I would pull the plug wire to see if it would affect it. THE COIL IS GOOD!! The pain in my arm is still reassuring that lol. Guess its time for new plugs. Good thing I have a set on the shelf. She is as good as new.

Set the high engine speed on my MF10 today. I always thought it sounded a little over speed before. Thinkin this oldy maybe last a bit longer if it runs just a little slower. Sounds better now.

Spent about 2 hours last night regrinding the baldes on the 140's deck. I might as well have been cutting grass with a baseball bat they were so dull... it did cut pretty well though. I can't imagine how nice it'll cut now!

I changed out the cam roller on the hydro of my 916H today, I thought it was steel but it was some sort of rubber.
null_zps445d3507.jpg
I made the mistake of changing it out in my shed and when I cranked it up it ran into my tiller. Couldn't find neutral at all. I got out my manual and tried to adjust according to instructions. Lining up with the neutral mark was about as precise as throwing baseballs at a clown in a dunking booth. I finally gave up on that and started using the wear marks at the adjustment bolt and finally got it to where there was no creep when the lever was pulled to the backside of the neutral gate. The problem is there is at least 3/16" play front to rear in the gate.
null_zpsa927bfac.jpg
I can't move the lever that much without activating the hydro motor. If I push it to the front of the gate it creeps forward but is absolutely still at the rear of the gate. I don't know why they didn't just make it with a single point ball detent.

I went back out and tried adjusting again using the adjustment nut on the cam cross shaft. As little as 1/8 turn of the nut clockwise or counterclockwise would start engagement of the hydro motor forward or reverse. I finally settled on a point where the hydro starts energizing forward and reverse at either end of the neutral gate. I am thinking of modifying the shifter sector with a sliding bar so that I can adjust the neutral gate to match the narrow neutral range.

Also changed out the shuttle reversing brake band on Sweet Allis (3414s). The old band had broken inexplecidly and I had made a repair to keep her working until the new part arrived.

I also took the opportunity to repack the planetary gear drum which required me to remove the right rear wheel so that the cap could be driven back on with a mallet.
null_zps84bf54b4.jpg
I found a zerk fitting leaking on the axle and decided it needed changing; A two minute job normally but it took me at least 30 minutes to find the package of zerk fittings in my mess I call my shop. I finally found it and changed out the zerk and got the axle tube lubed. Finally got everything lubed and the tire put back on and had enough time to get the lawn mowed before supper.
