I need the favor of an 1886-01 picture looking down on top of the engine.  What I want to see is how the heat shield where the regulator and solenoid mount bends and warps its way around the back of the engine.  Right now, the one on Old Buzzard's forklift is bent so that it gets into a fight with the dipstick

 

Second question. 

 

I had to buy a good salvage muffler support bracket from Bob's Lawn and Garden, so forgive my ignorance.  Is that heavy bracket really hanging off the engine shrouding like the pictures I am seeing seem to suggest?

 

Thanks in advance. 

Ben W.

Hi Ben. Looking at the parts manual at Item# 32 Bolens Part #1722 533 Support Assembly Muffler, there is one 'leg' that bolts on top and one on the side of the engine shroud. You can see it in this pic.

http://sonnys_bolens...hoto/1886-1.jpg . Also, the flange will support the weight alng with that bracket.

 

As for Item# 19 Part#1722 527 Heat Shield Assembly, Item# 47 Part#1722 766 Heat Shield Top and Item# 157 Part#1722 942 Heat Deflector I'll look harder or hope that someone else can get you pics.

 

Good luck.

Maybe Utah Smitty can hook you up. Found this topic on an 1886.

I thought you got a new one from Bob.

Or, is it a different one that you were talking about there?

 

I'm still in Mississippi, or I could have gone out and taken some pics of the one I brought back from PA.

 

However, I do have a couple of pic that show the dipstick area.

 

When I picked that 1886 up, I asked about the riveted on piece of what appears to be reinforced belting.  The PO, who used to be a Bolens dealer, said that it was to help deflect heat from the right foot.  He said that came as a TSB from Bolens.

 

In one pic you can see that there is a bit of an extra bend at the dipstick on the shroud piece.

While we are speaking of that area, here's the mod a PO made on the foot pedal on my H14.  It makes using the foot control a lot more comfortable.  He adjusted the pedal to be closer to horizontal, and then 'raised' the top of the pedal.
 
It appears that he used a part of a door/gate hinge to raise  the front. It might be possible to drill holes and just bolt it on.  If not, welding it on would be OK too.
 
I'm thinking that the aforementioned belting might have to be longer to account for the lower position of the front of the pedal.

My 1886 is a -2 series, but it's probably the same. However, one of the POs lost the top shield, and made an aluminum shield that fits down by the treadle pedal in the same location as the rubber shield on Old Buzzard's pictures. It's a tight fit to get the dipstick out.  My HT23 was similar--but had the upright of the loader frame to contend with.

 

The HT23s sold, but I can get a pic of the 1886 if it will help.

 

Regarding the treadle pedal--the PO screwed a 1 1/2" square by 3" wood block to the top of the pedal to make it more comfortable.  As was previously mentioned, you can also adjust the pedal for different positions as well.
