I have a small dilemma with the rear end in the 1254/G11.It's a Bolens 1254 with G11 Engine,hood,fenders,dash tower and PTO.So it's basically a G11 with a 6 speed rear.I Just got most of the buggs worked out of her.She runs very well.Still Have to get a dual belt pto pulley and a set of PTO belts.
I think there is something not quite rite about the rear end.I finally got to test out the tractor today after rebuilding and adjusting the driveshaft,clutch and brakes and finished welding up the exhaust and installed 2 new drive belts.I chained it to a big tree and put it in 2nd gear hi range and let it dig while I fine tuned the carb while under load.
I have the locking Hub turned in as far as it will go and bumped it tight with a rubber mallet.My Right wheel seems to have little to no rotation while in gear.I got off of the tractor with it still in gear and seen that the axle on the right side wasn't even trying to turn.The left side was digging a nice deep hole.
I'm not sure if something is messed up in the Diff or if the locker is worn.Does the Locker lock the Right axle in or the Left?
If it locks the left axle then I have something messed up in the Diff.
It's a very very strong running tractor now since I got the carb adjusted and runs super smooth and quiet (now that I got the exhaust put on lol).This old 11hp Briggs seems to have a good bit more power than the TRA10-D that was on my old 1050 but it may of been a bit tired.
