I have the 38" blade that I use on Hulk II. Always looking for sleeve hitch attachments, kinda scarce in this neck of the woods.

We, I mean I knew this was coming, what tires to choose. I went to the Miller site and decided on a matched tread pattern so I am thinking of these. I should be able to get them (all 4) for around $350.00. Comments suggestions welcomed!

Those should work well for your soil/lawn conditions!

I want to try those on the front of mine, same size. I will be anxious to see how you like them if you get that style.

All I did tonight was install the clutch assembly. Grandson was on the computer so I couldn't look at pictures, but it is only 3 bolts, so after mounting it, a pulley was hitting the deck lift bar and wouldn't  move with the brake pedal. Ahh wrong pulley, so I removed the pulley and it is the same size as the two spares. "Scratching head here now" Ahh, look under Hulk II, the pulley goes to the rear towards the transaxle. All is good now.

On a side note, in my search for a steering sector (as a spare) I queried several sites with the Model and part number. I got this reply from Almost Heaven Lawn Mower Grave Yard.

We would have to see the part to see if we even got one that will interchange yours IF YOU WOULD Please send us some pictures of the part you need and or your tractor (the better the pictures the better we can help you ) That way we can be sure that we can get you the correct parts Sorry we are NOT a dealer We are in the parts business !!! Year Make Model Type of Engine HP and shaft size Parts numbers wont help us at all We are not dealers We dont have those fancy books with fancy numbers That way we can keep out prices down so we dont have to charge high prices like the dealers with those fancy books PARTS IS PARTS !!

 

I thought this was hilarious!

Larry,

I broke your link as it wasn't actually a link to the page, but a link that showed your log in (just the email... not the password) for Fbook

Thanks, I didn't mean to link the site, "cut n paste" issue on my part. The main reason was for the comment I got from them "We dont have those fancy books with fancy numbers That way we can keep out prices down so we dont have to charge high prices like the dealers with those fancy books PARTS IS PARTS !!"

Wonder if they deal with "Green" parts too. :D Better have a picture!

I ditched "Almost Heaven Lawn Mower Grave Yard" the sector picture they sent me had more missing teath than a 97 year old hillbilly, I guess this was to be expected base on their comment "PARTS IS PARTS !!"

 

Any how, I was hoping to install the engine tonight but my help has to work till 10:00. I had the paint issue again with the ACE brand paint, (it is humid now). I switched to my preferred Fred's Emanuel and it came out fine. I also added my ground modification so the engine / chassis ground isn't 100% reliant on the chassis bolts and star washers.

I checked my fancy books and they only have one for a murray and john deere

Anyone know off-hand what a Briggs 18 Opposed Twin weighs? It was heavy! and I still have a leaf screen pattern on my arm from lifting it. My son was working late again tonight, and I was hoping to move the engine from the work bench to the frame. Total of  (4') yesterday. I need the bench space to start working on the large tins, so..... I Hulked it. I'll probably pay for this tomorrow, but the engine is mounted.

They ain't light. That is why I snagged this little Hoyer lift when it came up. Makes a perfect small engine snatcher.

No worse for wear this morning. I do need a small shop crane. The HF 1 ton is too big for my shop. I may look into building something on casters.
