    New from Eastern Iowa

    Welcome from Maine. Still using my dad’s 1972 (though his first Cadet was a model 70). I’ve augmented my collection with a 1968 for snow pushing duty.

    Postal delivery problems

    Happens to me rather frequently. I’ve two “homes.” When I get my mail forwarded, they are usually a week late. I can understand that, but I don’t understand sending some mail back to the sender saying I’ve left town leaving no forwarding address. They seem to particularly enjoy doing that with...

    106 mule drive belt kicking off spring pulley

    I had a similar problem with a 109. A cotter pin let go and the shaft and pulleys disassembled themselves. Many of the bits and pieces were lost in the grass. I ordered new stuff from CCS and began to set things right again. That is when I realized there were at least two ways to reassemble the...

    Boy, did I learn a lot!! Hey, what is that neat device you used to remove the mouse urine damage from the bearing plate? Seemed like it was attached to a drill?

    coil question and introduction

    Ditto the above. I left the key and an old (1969) Triumph motorcycle. I was camping out in Kansas at the time. I had just refueled and the fuel tank had a slight leak when topped off. Well the fuel dripped onto one of the two coils which was red hot because the key was left on. This caused a...

    Going to Colorado Elk hunting

    Love it. Reminiscent of the old Goodyear Custom Xtra Grip. I preferred the directional pattern. I don’t believe I’ve yet found a better snow tire than those tall, narrow Goodyears. That Carlisle looks the equal. John in Colorado

    Tire chains on AG tires

    Chain repair links as sold in your local hardware store would work on a garden tractor application. Some bolt cutters if you don’t already have them. More than that, you can go to tirechain dot com and pick “parts and accessories “ from their drop dow menu. They got everything you need and more.

    Cranky K341

    Had an interesting affliction with my 109 a few years ago that may or may not be applicable to your issue. This problem went on for several years. The engine cranked very slowly and often required jumper cables. I replaced the battery and that didn’t change anything. I took the starter/...

    Tire chains on AG tires

    One supplier told me the reason was that he chain would fit many different size tires - - therefore cost effective for the manufacturer - - not so cost effective for the poor sap who paid for 30% more chain than he needs and perhaps has to go out and buy a bolt cutter to trim them down to size.
