    682 Loader Tractor Kohler Command Engine Swap

    I mentioned in another thread I was about to do this, and have finally almost started. Too many things going on at the same time. Anyway... I pieced together this tractor and loader about 10 years ago, moved it Kansas to use around the yard this past year, and fixed up a bunch of stuff on it...

    782D Driveshaft Upgrade

    I've been wanting to do this mod to my 782D for awhile. My Dad was using it to bag grass this spring, and a stick or something went through the hydro fan and took out all of the blades. This tractor had the disconnect clutch option, which uses a different fan, and the fan was nearly $100 from...

    Timothy D.- They did not.

    1872 Refurbish/Command Swap

    I figure I'll put this all in once place, as it might be 6 months or more before I get this thing moving under its own power. I got this 1872 cheap, but only a fair price considering its condition. The good: -Sheetmetal is mostly quite nice. Just a tiny dent in the fender pan and...

    Brian K.- Yes, input shaft is splined, and the reduction ratio on the output shaft is different. My plan is to swap the output shaft from this hydro unit to another ported pump I have. I think the only reason the splined input shaft was used was for the rear PTO on the supers. Since I won't...

    David S.- The thicker one is correct for most of our cubs, IIRC.

    Wow, it has been years since the archive bug got me... Last year I got way too good of a deal on this 5kW generator. I finally got around to making a Pincor-style mount for my 782.

    44C deck rebuild

    I decided to completely go through the deck for my 782 while the spindles are out. When I brought the 782 out here, I cobbled together a deck from a pile of several partial ones, and left the good ones for my Dad. This deck worked fine, but it has cracks in the usual places, and I've been...

    Time to make a 3-point for the 782...

    Since my 782 is the only one of my Cubs that has migrated out to Kansas with me, it needs a 3-point hitch so I can plow my garden and do a few other things. I have been putting this off for awhile, but it finally reached critical mass when I needed a way to attach my EZ-rake. The lower 3-point...

    Scott N.- Is the toe-in set correctly (1/8") on all of your tractors? That will make a tremendous difference in steering effort required. When everything is adjusted correctly and lubricated, I have never noticed a difference in steering effort between any of my WF or 82 series tractors...

    Mike C.- It's been awhile since I have worked on that style of spindles, but is the OD of those spacers a bearing surface that the seal rides on? If so, you need to clean up that surface or replace the spacers, as that pitted surface will tear up your new seals in a hurry. Unfortunately I...

    For those who met my Grandpa at the Freeport show 10 years ago

    I've been really busy lately and haven't had much time to check in here, but I need to stop by for a few and say this. Several of you (Tom Hoffman and Bryan McMeen, and a few more, I think) met my Grandpa, Edwin Gonitzke, at the Freeport, IL threshing show in 2003 or 2004 when he came down...

    Art- I don't think I've seen a notch like that before, but I did buy some aftermarket valves once that looked like those.

    Josh S.- It doesn't matter what kind of tires you have; if you have any ice at all, you will go nowhere without chains.

    David S.- That can't be his problem, as there's no way that exhaust elbow unscrewed while it was still attached to the muffler...

    Harry- If they're IH bolts I'd say they are original. I don't remember there being anything special about those bolts- they look like normal 3/8" bolts that are 2 1/4" long. As long as he has the correct length bolts in there, it should work.

    Dan- You might be heading for problems, as the hoods and dashes are also different between the two tractors, so you may have an issue getting the hood to line up with the dash.

    Allen- The direction of rotation is determined by the way the field coils are wound, not by the polarity of the battery.

    Put my 'new' Sims cab on my 1872

    A couple months back I posted about getting a 782 with a Sims cab on it turns out, the cab is actually for a super, so I put it on my 1872 today after undoing most of the mods the PO did to kludge it onto the 782 (which actually turned out to be a repainted 1712). Since I couldn't...

    That's what happens when the PO tows it, I think.
