Here's how I will wire the lift switch. I did a test of this the other day and works great.

Just have to make it a permanent installation. I will save all the original wiring and switch.

Finally got to work on this installation. It was a decent day today.

I found this bracket and used the round section as it fit the 3/4" shaft on the frame.

Added it to my other piece. I'm trying to 'duplicate' the original parts to fit this actuator.

DSCN0165.JPG

Put the actuator up to see how it would work. First off, had a binding issue.

So i made up a part to fix that.

Still had a binding issue, so I moved the mount pin back 1/4". That cured this issue.

Went to work on the rear mount. That is one of the reasons for the part in the first pic.

Got that all figured out and installed the actuator. It works great.

Now to get the wiring sorted out. Hopefully tomorrow I'll get that done. Once I have the tiller on the back, I'll get a video of it in action.

Going out to get the wiring finished up real soon. Might get lucky and get the tiller attached!

Got it rewired and the actuator is installed. All new connections are soldered and have heat shrink on them.

Here's the old wiring.

DSCN0178.JPG

Went to hook the tiller up and ran into a challenge. Now I know why they say to have the tires in the narrow configuration when using the tiller. I'm not sure if these 23-10.50 Tru Powers will let me do that.

DSCN0179.JPG

It needs to come up and in just a bit more, but the gearbox is against the LH tire!

Also, the cold front has arrived here. Wind switched to the North and is getting gusty! Close to 20 MPH and very chilly out there!

These tires & wheels are off my LGT 165. It had 23-8.50's on it originally. May have to go back to those!

I'll get out tomorrow and see if swapping the wheels around will work with these tires. Just looking, they may rub the fenders. But won't know till I try. If they are too close, I'll have to get tubes for some 8.50's and use them.

Got some pics. The tiller will not work with 23X10.50 tires! So I have to get funds to buy some tubes for my 23X8.50 tires.

Here's before I swapped the tires around.

DSCN0184.JPG     DSCN0185.JPG

After.

DSCN0186.JPG     DSCN0187.JPG

Here's how tight the tires are to the fenders.

DSCN0188.JPG

And the tiller gearbox hitting the tire.

DSCN0189.JPG

 

I will also have to make an extension for the lift mechanism as the bar hits the axle mount right now. That extension is part of the Tiller package, but I don't have it. Not that hard to make.

DSCN0190.JPG    

The extension will go on this end, lowering the mount point.

DSCN0191.JPG

 

On to other things as this will be back burner for a while!

It's a beautiful day out down here (sorry to everyone NE). I got to thinking about tires for the Jake. Then it struck me, the AC 416S I just bought had the 23X8.50's on it. HHMMMMMM? Well they fit, though a bit close to the seat pan.

DSCN0202.JPG     DSCN0203.JPG

DSCN0204.JPG

 

But I gained the distance for the tiller to mount on the tractor. I think these AC wheel have about 1/4" more offset than the Jake wheels.

DSCN0205.JPG     DSCN0207.JPG

DSCN0209.JPG

 

I had to make a lift extension so I could see how it works. Sorry Tom, won't need yours now. The actuator would not lift the tiller until I got the assist springs hooked up, though. Need one a bit stronger.

DSCN0214.JPG

 

But, with the springs, it does lift it.

DSCN0210.JPG     DSCN0211.JPG

 

And I still have plenty of clearance between the tire and gearbox. Both raised and lowered.

DSCN0212.JPG     DSCN0213.JPG

 

Now I need the 68" belt. Checked through my 'supply' and 71" was the closest I have. Toooooo long!
