  1. Finally finished the tow hitch, the hydraulics and added some paint. volvo C30 tow eye heavy duty drawbar on bendy
  2. I was thinking of it... would like to get the hydraulics running though
  3. Looks good Norm
  4. Been a while since I posted a project, this has been in my head for years and I did the axles early last year... Left over axles make good bogies. Been stalled for a few months until a few weeks ago a tracked barrow skip turned up on that site. So so that set the juices flowing Building a frame Sprung drawbar
  5. does it run better and longer with the choke on, that's usually indicative of crap in the carb. Another favourite on briggs and kohler carbs is the float needle sticking so it might not be pulling enough or any fuel through.
  6. measure the width and pitch, it's almost certain to fall into a standard type i.e. 3/8, 1/2, 5/8" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roller_chain you can then cross reference to: https://www.usarollerchain.com/Metric-Roller-Chain-Chart-s/4870.htm then buy from https://www.engineersmate.com/products/BRITISH-STANDARD-ROLLER-CHAIN/C106058 or https://www.bearingboys.co.uk/British-Standard--1305-c that's where I'm buying it from at the moment... hope this helps, if you get stuck, ping me the width and pitch. mark
  7. Spent many happy years cutting the grass on a 25. Think we got it when I was about 8 and it ran faultlessly for another 8 until we upgraded. I think my brother bought one out of pure nostalgia a few years back
  8. Have a look at my Bendy build on the other channel... I build one from scratch
  9. Trying to organise another wheel horse round up, but other than family and Norm I’ve had no interest. A few years ago I managed to get 36 together! Have wheel horses had their day? Do I call this the final meet?
  10. Happy new year boys! And Nigel :p
  11. it was marketing, before 74 they were 6 speed (with 2 reverse) after that they became 8 speed (inc 2 reverse)
  12. shift boot is easy to get from the US pt no #3577 my first horse had a gearbox full of water, I stripped it - but it didn't need anything thats still running in my 4x4 horse

    help needed

    Pto switch, I've had a few fail now causing the 12v to the coil to drop.
  14. https://youtu.be/rjckF0-VeGI they do exist, I've got a set that do holes in wood
  15. I wasn't out to cause controversy and agree that none are shift on the go. I've replaced the selector on on one and can see it was never designed to be pulled through the middle under load, it's just not berry enough! agree on the grease too, I'd rather have something that splashes around rather than is thrown to the extremities! Btw never seen a spicer one, always been foote or peerless...
  16. those peerless boxes will generally allow shift on the go if the are the ones with a spring loaded key that runs through the gears. They are usually 5+reverse all in constant mesh and packed with sticky bentonite grease.
  17. of the dozen or so Briggs verticals I have worked on they are all 1" straight shaft with an inch long key (not half moon) The flywheel end on the other hand is always a 1" tapered with short very soft key that is designed to shear when things go wrong (don't ask how I know)
  18. I said watch this space... new addition to the fleet. 2010 4WD John Deere 3036e with loader and transport box, will come in very handy around the garden... Here's Ewan having the first test drive
  19. weld a nut into the broken shaft and screw a bolt in and then it will just wind the existing pulley off. I've never seen on seized as they rarely see any moisture - only oil! good luck
