    What model is this?

    When I did a rebuild of my 1250 motor (.010 over bore, all new guts) the cast white metal piece of the muffler box was too busted up to use. I was not able to find a replacement within my budget. As it holds all the sheet metal that surrounds the muffler, and the muffler itself was holey, I...

    Today's project

    Still driving my 1990 740 turbo wagon, 250? K miles, easy to wrench on… advised a step kid to buy a Volvo XC70, wish I hadn’t. Awesome car to drive but man is it a pain to work on and we’ve done a lot…

    Just another 129 project

    Is that a robo mower in the background? If so how do you like it?

    Mower Deck belt woes

    I have had some success with the blue/green Kevlar belts from tractor supply, but only after I worked hard to get the 2 pulleys directly below the pto pulley (1250) aligned well to the pto. They come in 1” size increments I think. But I don’t mow very often…. When I do it’s 1 acre of grass with...

    My first yellow GT, rough 147

    I put a $23 eBay Chinese carb on a Briggs 8 hp (on a tiller) as I couldn’t find a rebuild kit to fix the leaking original carb and damned if it doesn’t run great. Also put a carb from “I save tractors” on my K 12 hp 1250 when I rebuilt it, it also runs just right. BUT now the last non ethanol...

    Is there any love for metal shapers on here?

    Neat stuff. In the 80s I worked with an old machinist, he had a functional model from the 1908 Colombian Expo. About the size of a sewing machine. It worked!

    I'm in need of a set of 26x12x12 tires

    I'm in need of a set of 26x12x12 tires

    Yeah me too. Put tubes in one rear and one front last year and tho I am stubborn and like to do it all myself, next time I’m taking them to a tire shop. I’ve done plenty of motorcycle tires and tubes but it was a real challenge on that front wheel.

    Checking RPM

    When I rebuilt my K301 (rebore 10 over, all new guts) I started with one of those units that hooks inline with the spark plug wire but I couldn’t get it to work well at all, so I got the cheapest optical one I could find, maybe $30 bucks, works great. I would go that route.

    Hello All

    Somebody on this forum suggested mounting the coil on the frame of the tractor - I did that after a new coil lasted a few hours, havent had a failure since. Of course they have been mounted on the engines forever without problems, but maybe today's more cheaply built coils cant take it, I dunno.

    Help with a 169

    Yup I just left it on. The old fan had maybe one or 2 blades left, I think I just sorta chomped it off. Camera is pointed toward the hydro. (1250)

    Help with a 169

    That is the right way to do it. In my case I had had it apart fairly recently but had chewed up the new fan mowing my rough acre. Lotsa sticks plus I like to use the whole tractor to push back at the brush.
