Judging by what Charlie has available, I believe I over paid when I had mine rebuilt. He sells em new for less, oh well live and learn. Did have a nice weekend here, but I decided it was better to catch the flu and stay inside all weekend. Forecast is looking up at least!

Mark, I've used my local electric motor rebuilder. They do starters, alternators and any other electric motor they can get parts for. Do a search in your area and call around. Last time I had one done was several years ago and cost about$190 I think. But that's in northern Illinois. We have a lot of farm tractor guys around so that helps keep them able to do the small ones.

Ethan, I was thinking about this and I think you might be able to use your 48" deck on your 149 if you swap the mule drive section from the 44" deck sub-frame onto the deck hanger portion of the sub-frame for the 48" deck. Basically making the 48" deck sub-frame a wide frame deck sub-frame. Make sense?

Mark S., the starter generator from the Original likely has a different size pulley than the S/G on your 123 and may not work all that well but it's worth a try. Keep in mind that it's designed to spin a 7hp.

Hello:

Need a rebuild on my Starter Generator for my 123. I recall a place in New Jersey I used a while back for my Original. Anyone know of a rebuilder? Also, have a spare from my Original, will that work on the 123?

Thanks

When I remove the (oil fill) dipstick it blows air out. Does that mean I have to much pressure in the crank case? Or should there be a little bit there normally?

Ethan, if you can haul your deck over here, we can weld some metal in.

Kraig,thatís what I was thinking but I thought Iíd ask anyways.ill see about getting my 44a serviceable for now

Ethan, the 48" deck would require the wide frame sub-frame specific for it. The one from the 44" deck, I believe will not work with the 48" deck. And the narrow frame sub-frame you use with the 48" deck on your 125 will not work on the 149.

More seat time!
Went over the garden spot with the disc, then the cultivator.
Laid off the rows, and planted four rows of corn.

It is supposed to rain from late tomorrow until Thursday, so I had to get on with it.

Kraig I have the sub frame for both my 125(I cut with that now) and for my 149 with the 44a.I was looking over my 44a deck again it may not be as bad as I thought...donít get me wrong itís rough but serviceable,one of the POs used bondo to ďfixĒ some rot on the deck body that hack repair may actually sealed up the rot areas so they didnít get worse.Ill replicate the bondo hack and get some new pulleys for the deck and use ituntil I can find a better 44a.What size are the pulleys on a 44a deck???

Ethan, the 48" decks were used on the early 1x8/9 series. I'm posting from my phone so don't have access to my archives but I believe you may need a different sub-frame to mount it.

Can I swap my 48inch triangle deck from my 125 onto my 149?The 44a deck that came with my 149 has great spindles but the deck itself is a basket case and Iíd like to cut with my 149 till I can find a 44a thatís in better shape

Patrick,

Also check your breather cover, breather filter, and "weep hole" inside the breather to make sure none of these are stopped up.
This is not on the very top of the motor, but if it is leaking, it could appear to be leaking near the top.

Ethan,

I am just getting over a bad cold and I have been using prescription Flonase a lot.
It seems to be working real good, so far.
The migraines have subsided also.
I noticed when I do more of my therapy exercise, I have less migraines.

Pat you probably have a head gasket blown. A new gasket and remove the carbon buildup and check the head to see if it is warped and you should be good to go.
