There's a Danfoss dealer in Lively, and 6 in Toronto. Sauer Danfoss bought Sundstrand quite some time ago.

There's also one in Flint MI that apparently has good prices.

Thanks Bob. I'll see what they can do, and for how much.

 

Daniel also alerted me to Patton Acres (site sponser) in Pa. They have the gerator as well.

Time for an update.

After discovering the gerator was worn badly, I took a look at the end cap of

the charge pump. Badly worn too.

The gerator set from Paton was $85, and would take 2 weeks + shipping, tax

and brokerage fees. Probably end up at about $175, and still no end cap.

I called the Cdn Danfoss dealer. $349 and 6 weeks for the cap, and gerator set.

Considering that all that smeared metal, went to the motor, I just couldn't spend

that money. Doug (DH1) had a spare complete tranny on the shelf. We struck a deal

and he brought it up this past Sat. when he came up for the trail ride/meet and greet.

This aft, I installed it, and now I have a moving MF14. Thanks Doug.

Glad your 14 is up and running again!

I think I'll drain the fluid, and give it a new filter, now that I

know it works.

I've still got lots of work to do, before the 14 gets put to work.

-Hook up throttle/choke cables

-tweak the hydro lever . It's way out of adjustment.

-Make up exhaust piping, and install muffler. Finish wiring

-put all the tin back on, and the snow cab.

-install the snow thrower

-make up a rear counter weight.

-Load the rear tires, and add wheel weights

-Install an ATV winch on the rear

-new front wheel bearings

 

There's probably more, but that's a start.

Had a good day in the shop today.

Stroked a lot off the list.

 

Muffler done, wiring, cables, hydro oil change, pto clutch on, tin back on and pulled running

boards off and touched up paint, made up a brake band centering bracket.

 

Tomorrow, I hope to get the blower and cab on.

Sounds like you had good day. Won't be long before you'll be blowing snow inside a warm cab. Looks good Will.

I like that brake bracket. Good idea for that. Pretty neat exhaust extension too.

Managed to get the blower mounted, and made and installed a rear

weight bracket. I still need to install the stock manual chute rotator, so I can be

ready to snow blow, while I concoct a powered version.

Muffler looks good and the weight bracket, how much/many weights can you put on it?

Thanks Doug.

The muffler sounds good too. I put the same one on my Ford LGT165.

The weight bracket can take the 3-40lbrs, and 6 of the smaller ones, which I think

are 25lbs ea. So, 270lbs. I'm going to load the tires, and put some weights on the rears

yet, too.

I pretty much finished getting this thing back together, and useable, so I took

it out and blew some 6"-8" of heavy packing snow. It worked good.

I think that's a good test, so blowing the fluffy stuff will be a walk in the park.

Sorry, no action shots.

Things I did prior to test run today.

 Loaded tires with washer fluid- 6 gallons each.

 Switched chains to 2 linkers.

 Installed rear wheel weights.

 Installed LED lights on cab.

 

DSCF2446.JPG

 

 Flapper on exhaust.

 Raised the support rod for the chute rotator shaft. It interfered with the air breather, being

the K341 (16hp) breather is bigger than the stock one for the 14hp.

It sure was nice sitting in the cab.

I'm pro cab now.
