Now I'm thinking about going to ask the body shop how much they'll charge to make my rims white and maybe touch up where the old muffler was burning the paint. Not much point in having the plow repainted, since I'm in Wisconsin.

What are lift links? The guy I bought it from suggested loosening the bolt on the back end of the GT. Is that a good idea? I usually trust bolts to have a reason for where the stop.

The lift link is where the implement attaches to your tractors lift. You could paint those rims yourself.

The only problem, besides the rims not being white, is that now the plow stops going down about an inch before it touches the ground. I live in Wisconsin, so it's a huge necessity to plow all the way to the ground. Any solutions please?

 

Put the correct size tires back on the front. Aside from 'looks', those front tires are doing you no good whatsoever. The tractor looks to be in great shape, congrats.

Will the wheels do anything bad? Other than me having to adjust my plow?
Thank you!

Before

Looks sturdy enough to do the job. I think it's slightly cross eyed though that shouldn't make any difference. Now you aren't talking about those round bales are you? :-)

The lift links on the plow have 2 settings. You might want to change holes and see if that helps. It will let the blade fall lower, but won't get as much lift. But,its worth a shot. Hope this helps

Thanks! The plow ended up going to the ground the next day, without me doing any adjustments. What do you mean that it looks "cross eyed"?

Do the hydraulics have a way to attach hoses for a log splitter and is that when you put the hydraulic lever in "float" mode please? Also, is there a specific type of hydraulic fluid to use? I can't find that info in the owner's manual.
Thanks!
Bob

Also, would this fit on my snapper 1650? I don't want to buy it if it won't work.
"New Holland tractor cab
condition: good
make / manufacturer: New Holland
model name / number: cab
size / dimensions: 6'6' H x 42'W x 42"L

painted John deere green I've had it on 2 John Deere's so far. plexi-glass ,vinyl,and canvas 4 mounts
to back fenders and to the side of the tractor deck by the pedals. The price is firm it stays comfortable in there just out of the elements. It's not real pretty but it sure is serviceable. 6'6' H X 42"W X 42" L."
Thanks again!
Bob
