My brother said there is a crank on ebay for about $100 after shipping.

I think some of this damage may have been caused by using the tractor to move large snow banks by hitting them at a high speed. The snow blade is bent a good bit and I bet this tractor was worked hard for a long time.

 

 

Here is the one I found on ebay.

Thanks. The model of the engine on my bush hog is TR-10D not TRA-10D. What is the difference between the two?

I believe there only small differences such as the TRA10D has electric ignition compared to the magneto ignition on your engine and the TRA10D has slightly more hp due to a bigger cylinder bore. Other than that I think most of the parts will interchange. If it helps you at all the TRA10D is the same model engine in my 1050.

The TR10D is actually just 8 1/4HP where the TRA10D is a full 10HP.  Sadly, all my D4-10's have TR10D engines.

Man, would never have guessed a broken crank!  The throwout bearing looks to be much like that used in the Power King tractors.

Luckily, my brother hoards bolens parts and tractors and said that he would give me a TRA10D to rebuild. They appear to be the same size and mounting pattern. All I would need to do is get the crank, new rod, and other stuff to rebuild it.

Wow, sorry about the crank. That had to be a weak spot somehow as so many of the GURUs hadn't ever seen it before.
Hopefully the repower isn't hard or expensive.

Is there a chance Matt had a good crank in the parts pile and you could just swap it in?

Matt, If you are talking about the bend in the A-Frame of the blade that attaches to the tractor, it is bent upward under the front axle if I remember correctly.

The crank in the bush hog engine is a special design, longer in the front for a front pto, and hollowed out in the back so that the drive shaft has plenty of room to extend through the clutch. That's why I cant just take an engine straight out of one of his parts tractors.

No, he is talking about the blade its self, it is bent and dented in quite a few places.

If you want to, put a list of parts you need, I may can help. I can get the crank, may can come up with the throw out bearing. Will try to put together a package deal.

Thanks, will see what else I might need. I need a crank (and matched rod would be great), a headlight if you have one, throw-out bearing, and a seat frame it you have one. I dont need one, but if you have one laying around, a shifter lever for the hi/lo (somehow the one on mine got bent). I dont think I will need much else, but will check.

Can you take a close up of the condition of your headlight?? Maybe front and back....will try to match up in condition....I have several I can choose from.

 

The crank is at a guys place and I will have to go get it.....I may could go by the end of the week.....will have to see how that works out. I also might have a used throw out bearing that is good. I know I have one NOS...but not sure I want to part with it.....

 

Will look in my boxes to see what I can come up with.

I will take a few pics of the good light, they don't match, the broken one is a replacement. Thanks for the help.
