Why positive ground?

These have the dual diode regulator. The + side goes to the ignition switch for battery charging and PTO operation. The - side goes to the lights. So this makes the lights DC but at a positive ground.

Well, that would make it so you have to pay close attention if you decided to put in LED headlights

For those that have sleeve hitches, this is probably the most used attachment I have. (I do have a 38" blade also).
I made a 1-7/8 ball hitch attachment for my little 4X5 trailer and use it constantly with Hulk II. Even makes unloading the trailer easier allowing to tip it slightly. I have a larger trailer 6X8 now and I needed a 2" ball. For now only Old Girl can move it as I installed a 2" receiver on her. I wanted a 2" ball attachment that I can use on Hulk II and BOH's sleeve hitch.
Tractor supply has a pin that fits in the sleeve hitch, but you need to grind a lip off so it sets lower allowing the pin to be inserted under Neath.
Then you need a 2" ball and cut the threaded shaft off (expect to use 2-3 hacksaw blades in your saws all).
Next, have the neighbor weld the two parts together. He will do this for me tomorrow.

I'll now have a 1-7/8 and 2" sleeve hitch ball. :rocker2:

 

I'm doing the same thing, found an old 1 7/8 ball with screwed up threads in my tool drawer. I will use it for both  1 7/8 and 2" trailers so I will only need one.

Yes, that is why I had a hard time finding LED's that had both red & black wires. I will test them once I get the engine running before I drill holes in the fender pan.

I didn't think you could use a 1-7/8 with a 2" trailer. I guess just for moving it around, but I will have a load on mine so I am making a proper 2" for it. Thanks.

My buddy pulled his 14" landscape trailer with a 2" coupler using a 1 7/8" ball for years. I couldn't believe he did it, but it never came off.

Yes, I just move the trailers around the property, never on the road, works fine

If you jar it hard enough a 2 inch will jump off a 1 7/8 ball. Otherwise it isnt much problem. Not really safe on the road though.

One of the worse wrecks my dad ever towed was someone was towing a trailer full of tobacco and it got loose going up hill and ran over a car. The people behind did not survive.

@#$^@ Sears Parts Direct!!!!! :mad2:  :mad2:  :mad2: . I got the PTO switch, in a baggie and no nut! WTH!!!! Who sells a switch without the nut! and it is an odd ball nut too-boot! 1mm pitch. I dug through all my part boxes and found several 1mm pitch but not big enough. Hope I'll find one at work tomorrow.

Grandson commandeered the computer which allowed a second search of the shop for a nut, Nothing turned up till I thought (wait a minuet) the GT came with a PTO switch. So I went through the parts bags and there it was :wallbanging: . Under dash wiring is done so now I can install the fire wall. Oh I was so pissed at Sears that I forgot I had this in the trunk of the car.

A BOH update. Regular Work takes presentence, but for the last couple evenings I labeled the shifter plates (I think this looks good). Installed the fire wall and fuel lines. I need to pick up a filter to complete the fuel lines and add gas. Dressed out the electrical and picked up a 360 CA battery and tie down. Had an issue with the throttle cable, it is too tight. It will allow WOT but on return to idle it wouldn't retract fully, so I am trying to let oil seep into it over night. I also relocated the jack stands so when I get him running I can go through all the gears.

I think I am still on track to have a running video this weekend.

The guy who packaged that switch must havebeen the same guy who packaged the brake adjuster hardware on the Dakota.


The lettering looks ok. Different though.

Well I promised a video, but I picked up a fuel filter and installed it. Put about a gallon of has in the tank (no leaks) and pulled the line off the carb and sucked on it till I saw gas in the new filter and re-attached the line. Camera battery was dead so I thought I would just test it once. Woo Hoo it fired right up. Milestone met. I'll get a video once the camera is charged.

The promised video, I did cheat and primed the carb, but ran into an issue with the drive belt. I loosened the idler as far as it would go and the brake would not stop the belt allowing gear changes. I put the old belt (both are specified as 1/2 X 98") but after examining both belts the Husky is slightly larger in width. I think I need to order two OEM 110883X from Sears. The PTO and seat safety worked perfect. Stay tuned for a LED Headlight POSSIBLE update (still in the R&D phase).
