    782 front subframe wear?

    Just a thought on welding them up. Might consider using hard facing rods that are used for anti wearing loader bucket surfaces. Then hand grind to fit. I have used it for repairing a broken gear tooth or teeth.

    147 Cub Cadet how Do I find out what PTO rebuild kit is correct?

    I did face the friction surfaces on the lathe & used 80 grit Emory cloth to crosshatch the surfaces. I also purchased new bolts, triangle spring, 3 coil springs & a new button from CCS.

    147 Cub Cadet how Do I find out what PTO rebuild kit is correct?

    I recently went through all the correct steps to rebuild one of these PTO clutches….. EXCEPT for genuine CC friction material… the off brand stuff “EBay” is a crap shoot & you will most likely get burned in the long run. My FleaBay friction material held up for 2 months. Slippage became worse...

    Red Sticky grease

    I’m sure the Red n Tacky from Lucas is good grease. For my area most local auto parts stores have it priced in the $10.00 range. I usually buy a carton of grease about every 3-4 months. I most always just buy Lithium based grease at $3.29.

    1967 Massey Ferguson 10

    Years ago I had a similar tractor. Possibly an 8 ?? It had a recoil start 10 HP Tecumseh engine that had obviously been transplanted. Deck was 38” 2 blade all gear drive on deck. With a belt PTO.

    Vermeer M 147H PTO questions

    My recommendation is….Use genuine CC parts to rebuild your PTO. They will work & perform/last a very long time if done correctly.

    Chainsaw chain

    I use Oregon or Stihl chains & have an Oregon bench grinder for sharpening & gauging rakers. Almost anything else I have tried as far as chains wear in the hinge pins & the pitch on the drive dogs creates excessive wear on drive sprocket(s). I used to hand file for sharpening & nothing wrong...

    Wheels & studs

    I have home made wheel weights that the bulk of pull off to get to the wheel bolts. But about 30#’s of weight & weight bolts stay with the wheel. Some sort of alignment aid is much needed!

    Wheels & studs

    I have a regular bolt, same thread as wheel bolts, with the hex head cut off. Run it in a hole with fingers, that gives you a temporary stud. Then install all other bolts, remove stud & replace with last wheel bolt.

    1862 Cub Cadet mower issues

    Sounds like a carb/fuel issue to me. Should never be run to mow or other work without an air filter. except for diagnostic reasons

    1450 belt issue

    I don’t have a tiller. A few years back I had lots of issues with mower drive belt. After much frustration I removed entire mule-drive assembly. There was lots of wear on the pulley brackets & mounting shaft. This was causing some alignment issues. Once all that was repaired belt issues...

    Best Carb Cleaner

    The pine-sol might work well in the ultrasonic too! Last time I used my ultrasonic I was out of simple green & found my wife’s MrClean Worked well.

    Best Carb Cleaner

    I have an ultrasonic cleaner that uses water & a bit of cleaner like “simple green”. Prices vary depending on size. If you might have other uses for it they are a good investment, & no really harsh chemicals needed. VEVOR 30L Industrial Ultrasonic Cleaner with Digital Timer&Heater 40kHz...

    Bought something else i prolly dont need.

    Been a long time, probably late 1960’s since I fooled with one of them. As best I remember took about 4-5 turns to wind up the spring, then fold crank handle back over. Then there was a lever you pushed to crank engine. They worked OK as long as engine was in tune, points, carb etc.

    Cub Cadet 1330 PTO clutch switch won't stay engaged without holding the clutch switch on

    If not too much work, replace it with a switch from 1of your other tractors. If that cures it get a new switch & replace it on donor tractor..

    K-301 carburetor

    Finally managed to get the 12 HP installed in my 106. Had real issues with the eBay replacement carb. First off the fuel bowl overfilled & gasoline just poured out. Pulled bowl to adjust float, then again & again. The tab on the float is horrible thin & the slightest effort bends it. Finally...
