Well, that was fun without a drill press. I managed to drill straight through both broken bolts and remove them without damaging the threads in the flywheel. My drill press is disassembled and stored until my shed is finished, and my Dewalt drill is at my parents, since I'm doing some work on their bathroom. The cheapo Black and Decker did the trick, though. Now to put the Allis back together for the next storm and firewood hauling.

Well, it's warmer than it has been today, so I put the flywheel back on and put the tractor back together. We got three inches of snow, so I just got started clearing the driveway.I'm real glad to have the tractor back!

Glad it's going for you again! There's more snow coming, so get more gas!

Thanks Kenny. It looks like we'll be getting less than an inch of snow in my area overnight, but south of me will be waking up to a mess. The bolts that sheared off in my flywheel loosened up before they broke, because I remember hearing a knocking noise when I would shut off the ignition. I thought it was coming from the BGB, so I didn't bother to look into it. When I pulled the engine, I checked the BGB and it had very little play, less than 1/8". Also, I don't think the bolts that broke were the correct ones, but I replaced them with the correct bolts from another flywheel assembly that I had on hand. I also replaced the flywheel nut, keeper, Key, and starter generator pulley. There is no more knocking noise when I kill the engine, so I'm happy with that!

We are on the North edge of this also. That wind is nasty out there! It's 28° outside, but feels like 19°.  The wind cuts right on through! We only got a dusting here. With it being a 'dry' snow, I think it is just blowing right on by!
