Someone beat me to the MM asking! LP, cool! Should be clean engine running on that. Nice! I had several MM's, but now only have an old R, need wheels if you know of any?

Thanks! I don't know of any wheels but my dad might know if there's any around.  Whats the tractor set as your profile pic? A economy tractor?

If you aren't concerned about keeping it original looking, you could probably modify it to work with linear actuators. They are electric, but function sort of like a hydraulic cylinder . Princess Auto has them for reasonable prices so Harbor Freight likely does too.

I have experience with linear actuators. I outfitted my Haban Sickle mower with one this spring. Lifting it up and down all the time gets tired on the arm. I have had good experience with Firgelli Automation for linear actuators. I was thinking of using linear actuator for the deflector but i'm still not sure what to use for the rotation.  :thumbs:

That thing is a beast! As far as the electric I'm not sure. I would think a good shop might be able to rebuild them? And the plastic pieces. If you can't find them you might think of making them your self? Some UHMW plastics would work great.

+2 on a linear actuator for the chute tip control.

For the blower on my G152, I just used 1/4" urethane for the glides.

For the swivel, would a high torque, low rpm electric motor for a kid's electric jeep or robotics work? Use a #40 chain sprocket on it, and cut apart a larger sprocket and weld on several pieces around the chute to attach.

Where did you buy the Urethane? Everywhere I've been looking has been kind of expensive.

I work construction/demolition. Found it wrecking a building. I gave the rest of what I had to a neighbor for a project, I'll see if he has any left of it.

Your 154 doesn't have the hydraulic accessory kit, how is the front implement lift set up on yours?

I have the hydraulic accessory kit for it but it leaks and the control valve is frozen up so I removed it. I plan on mounting an atv winch to the bumper of the tractor to lift the blower.

IIRC, the motors are the same as the late 1960's Chevy Suburban used to raise and lower the rear gate glass and the power windows when equipped.

I searched up a power window motor for a 60's Suburban and came up with this. Not a Suburban motor but it looks almost exactly like the motors that were on this thing.

Apologies on the thread rez, but I had this bookmarked and I was working on my own model 1949 blower today.  I thought I had a bad motor, but testing determined it was a wiring problem.  At any rate, before I got it figured out, I spent some time trying to figure out what the motor is from.  I'm 98% sure that it's a window motor that fit a pile of 70s/80s GM vehicles, including some Suburbans as a tailgate actuator.  I happened to track the picture down on Rock Auto, but many other sources will work.  Look at the front left/right rear window actuator for a '76 Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser.  Cardone P/N 82016 or 4216.  The gear is listed as well, Cardone P/N 8290 or 4290.
