    Ya!

    I just finished swapping them out and took it for a test ride.

    I think it's got weak pump yet. Fuck!

    That's a task for another day.

    You boys ever get into servicing pressure washers? I have a customer that needed there’s serviced…. Let’s see. Poured gas into tank, gas ran out of carb. Rebuilt the carb, hooked water up and pump manifold was cracked, ordered and installed manifold. Ran it some and pump seemed “tight” ugh now what…. Found plastic plug on side of pump. Drained some smelly gray looking oil out of this pump and found that non-detergent 30 weight oil will work just fine. Did a couple drain and fills and now seems “like new” :fingerscrossed: 150.00 bucks for said service…. 400.00 for new pressure washer… let’s see how it’ll last

    got the wheel motors replaced. Found out the right motor was original and the left was a replacement already. After test driving I still have a chatter in the right side when switching directions . Pretty sure there is something wrong with the pump. It doesn't seem to have any power issues, but of course I'm very flat so I don't know if its really weak or not.

    Gonna order a pump and swap the thing out.

    More pics and ramblings to fallow.

    Motor on the right is an original and I believe there was nothing wrong with it. The left was replaced at some time.[​IMG]

    The motor on the left is one of the new ones I swapped in. it is a happy medium in size.

    I ordered them from China and the fit was perfect. They seemed to drive the mower just fine.

    [​IMG] Obviously I'm annoyed that I still have the chatter on the right side.

    I need to autopsy the old filter.

    There was a quite a bit of visible metal as I was pouring out the old oil.

    I hope it was doing its job and kept that metal entrapped in the filter media. I'll get pics when I cut it open.

    Random pic of hub removal.

    An air chisel with a blunt anvil makes removing these hubs a joy. No puller is needed.

    Battery may be replacing lots of air tools, but I think its gonna be a while before they can top 30 impacts per second.[​IMG]

    I like using plain old starting fluid for degreasing. It's a 2$/ can cheaper than brake clean.

    [​IMG] I almost wonder if its the same thing?

    Sure smells the same and brake clean does help start stubburn engines as well.

    Thank ya'll for the input on the trailer. I think I hauled ~2700lbs on a 16ft steel trailer with no brakes when I hauled my tractors, cart, and box blade up to a co-workers house for dirtwork. My clutch was not happy with that at all.

    I think if I bought this tractor I'd rent a truck as well. Probably cheaper than a clutch.

    He said he would cut the bar to whatever length he needs, probably around the 4’ range. He wants it to mow around his fence. He also wants it to break back if he hits something, and of course it will be hydraulic driven.

    Water sinks and fuel floats.

    Most of the diesel modern tractors have a water separator built in or in conjunction with fuel filter, most users should dump that a couple times a year.

    **Always keep diesel tank FULL over winter months, reduces the amount of sweat and condensation that will build up in a tank.

    On a 300 gallon tank, not always will it be topped off or full, so they receive more condensation/water with temperature swings, I added a water separator, allows me to visually see if water is in fuel and drain off prior to putting fuel in tractor/equipment.

    Getting ready to spray some paint. Scotch brite smoothing yellow primer which was sprayed over over etching primer then will spray with catalyzed IH yellow on my Cub 3205 tins.

    Off to dig another hole.
    At least it's triple digit heat.
    I need to learn how to say "no".

    I service our rental units and whatever customers bring in. Usually pretty maintenance free until people start doing dumb stuff...or freeze them. A couple of the pumps are easier to get into than others. Oh, and Ryobi's are absolute trash
