Thank You.
Glenn P built the plows for me.View attachment 135861
As a kid that grew up in the sixties and seventies, I remember a lot of evenings spent plowing after school. No cabs and sometimes the radio might pick up a station from St Louis if all was good. If it was cold and we were lucky, we had a heat houser on the tractor. If not you dressed warm and kept going.
Your picture brings back a lot of memories.
Thanks.

I have a 14hp 321 block that im rebuilding This block come out of a JD not sure the model of JD This block is a flanged base kohler And it used a square sheet metal oil pan So what were these extra cast flanges on each side of the block used for an the JD application? Each cast flange protruded outside the side of the block about 2 inches had 2 bolt holes 3/8 each flange

Stamped steel, to mount one in a cub you can put an oil pan from an engine out of a cub on and it’ll bolt up. At least it did when I took a k341 out of a John Deere and put in a 128

didn't the flanges crowd the cub area? did u think about cutting off or grinding the flanges flush with the block using a cub oil pan as a guide?

I thought about it but it looked like a lot of work because if you cut the flange off it leaves a gap that has to have a patch welded over, and it fit in my wide frame ok

that depends on where the oil fill hole or dipstick is located at The pic u sent yes, I know about the gap on this type of kohler block has I had a block like this and I had to do the same thing by plugging the gap with cast iron welding it then machining the base flat I had another JD 321 block a week ago I cut off the flanges off that had the dipstick pressed in the RH top of the block But this block there were no fill plug or dipstick holes in the flanges that would leave a gap to need plugged I made sure of this BEFORE I started cutting and grinding I bolted a cast iron oil pan to the block as a guide a template I guess kohler made many different type of blocks for different applications
