Ever since I got the reel on the EK10 I knew it needed some back lapping to get a decent cut again. It would leave grass behind and not cut right in places.
So after successful lapping on the Bolens walkbehinds (Which is real easy as you just flip the belt and use the engines own power) I decided to find a way to do it to the shaft drive ones without taking it to a shop and waste money.
I installed the PTO kit on the 1050 then changed the pulley for a sprocket. Lined up the tractors and was good to go!
Fired up the 1050 and lowered to an idle then brushed on the lapping compound to true up the reel and knife bed.
