    Compound Bows....anybody own/use a Parker?

    Mower deck fitment to a 1712

    Wyatt: As Matt noted, my 1712 has the Series II in it. The engine in the tractor is/runs fine, with 721 hours on it. I was just wanting to warm it up slightly....minor hotrodding, since we use the tractor for normal duties. I don't really want to do a complete engine swap, unless the KT-17...

    Your first gun

    Recently a guy I work with came out with a clay bird thrower, and some of his shotguns, and the two of us and my son shot trap for an afternoon. My son seemed like a 'natural' at it, and since he REALLY showed an interest, and he used the guns safely and properly, I decided to get him a shotgun...

    1712 Update/progress report

When we had gotten the stuff we needed, I unhooked the charger, and tried to fire it up again.....it fired and...

    Jerry M. The type/style of sleeve hitch you have (the one Charlie posted a picture of) was designed for use on the 'Original'. The 'newer' style lower bracket is a 'U' shape, and can be used with a stablizer plate, and adjustable jamb nuts.

    Let the fun begin

    Yesterday morning, I went to my local dealer, and ordered manuals, and some small parts to begin on the 1712. One of the things I picked up/ordered, was a new seat. They had 'universal seats' sitting on a table right next to the parts counter....looked PDC to the original type seat...for...

    Thanks for the info Ken. I wonder if that (NLA parts) is going to start happening more and more frequently? Eventually the warehouses will run out of the NOS parts, and if MTD doesn't want to manufacture any more parts for the IH made tractors...................where does that leave all of...
