I had the exact same gas "drooling" problem on my 122 when I got it.

The float had a leak and would slosh when shaken. A new float ( and bowl gasket ) solved the problem.

All these snow pics are making me jealous up here in Detroit Lakes, MN. We did not feven get a snow flake out of that storm, and down south got dumped on. I was doing the snow dance to get it to come up north even..... maybe i danced it wrong. Well either way, ol grumpy is just a waiting for some action!

Here is the blade on the diesel last year before i put it on a quick attach plate for the loader.

Pushes a nice wide path, but gotta watch out for the ditches that sneak up on you!

Hope everyone got dug out and is staying warm!

starter generator vs. bendix drive starter?
which do you guys prefer. i have owned tractors with both, and i would have to say i prefer the starter generator. you dont have to remove the flywheel to service the charging system. the starter drive is also allot more quieter. starter generators are barely audible, while the bendix drive starter is very loud for a starter. which one charges the battery better?

Tim T., that looks to be a standard unmodified QA36 and it should mount right up to your 147. I suppose it could be bent apart making it appear wider, if that is the case just bend the subframe arms back together. I need to bend mine back together as they are slightly sprung apart from years of use.

After church today I spent several more hours clearing snow. Wow what a difference with that double spring PTO clutch. Wes, I hope you are correct that this one should last. So far I'm happy with it.

After I finished clearing snow I was going to haul some trailer loads of fire wood in. I left the 125 run while I was shoveling out the firewood pile and the engine started to stumble and quit. I tried to restart it but with the charging system not working the battery was dead. Thankfully I had cleared out a big area around the firewood and was able to get my truck close enough to hook up the jumper cables. I let it charge for a few minutes while I shoveled snow from between the firewood piles. In the 18 years that I've I've been heating with wood I've never had to shovel snow from between the firewood piles. There's over 2 feet of fresh snow between the piles.

Anyway after I let the battery charge for a while I tried to start it again. It would turn over but no fire. By now the choke cable and throttle cables are starting to ice up from all the snow on them. I went to the shed and got a spark plug wrench to check if it had spark. No spark!
bash.gif
While I'm thinking of what all could be wrong I start to brush the snow off of the carb and coil and what not and I notice that one wire from the coil was broken right at the crimp connector. I had some tools in the back of the truck so I grabbed those and got the wire stripped back and a new spade connector crimped on, put the tools away, (yes that is usually not a smart thing to do but I was feeling blessed), closed the hood and cranked it over. What do you know it started!

I quickly got the jumper cables removed and the truck moved out of the way and got the Cub back in the shed where I have electricity. I'll deal with thawing it out and hauling in firewood later. I'm tired.

I hope you were able to get that back out of the ditch! I bet it made for an exciting ride.

Hey everyone, Well my little part of the world got 4.3 inches of the fluffy white stuff.
I really think the 127 with QA36 snowthrower loves that amount, did awesome.
Now need to put weights on and see how it works then, did slip a little,
we had ice before the snow.

Paul B., when I first glanced at your photo as it scrolled by I thought it was a real person and a full size Cub. Ya got me!

Jeff U., I like your idea on the cam follower, let us know how it works.

Yes I do play guitar. I have a 1976 El Maya Les Paul copy (made in Japan) and a 1977 Fender Twin Reverb. I bought both of them new, way back when I was in high school. I also have an Epiphone Les Paul (made in China), an Epiphone Elitist Les Paul (made in Japan), a Rocktron Replitone amp, a Behringer Firebird Gx108 practice amp, some effects and a couple of cheap acoustic guitars.

Kendal H., looks like you could have used an extension on the top of the QA thrower you have a full load there.

Mike C., place an add in the classifieds you should be able to find the blade subframe you are looking for.

Denny, I'm not sure I have the photos of Wyatt's engine.

Rodney, no reason the Original wouldn't work just fine with the BB36 snowthrower. Same as for any snowthrower make sure there's no rust in the auger housing or the discharge chute that will cause it to plug up.

I posted some pics of today's snow-removal in Don's 450 Snowblower referb thread.

The pics are off-topic for this forum. I thought they were off-topic because the tractor I used is an MTD-built unit and not <FONT COLOR="ff0000">I</FONT><FONT COLOR="000000">H</FONT>-built, but I see they are off-topic because this is now a guitar-forum...

Aaron-
Nice blade set up!

Kraig-
Glad to hear you got the Cub up and running again? Frozen control-cables? What's that? I've never had that problem with a "non-perfection" 82-series.

Paul-
Your cub is going to need wheel-weights and chains if you're going to keep pushing snow in your shirt-sleeves!

Came across an IH chipper/shredder a guy wanted to sell. Looks similar to unit that mounts to the front of a NF CC, but it was engine powered (long since removed) and had wheels and handles. Was this the same as the front mounted unit except for mounting brackets and mule? Was in real nice shape for $25. Thanks.
