    Replaced key switch connector (badly burnt from being loose) and got my choke working on the 140.

    Very nice work grandpajay. Midas Muffler would hire you fer sure.

    I have tips on my side exit 400's to keep the carbon off the side panel. Cheap and easy to do. I bought a length of stainless exhaust pipe that was just the right size to slip over the original tips on the mufflers. I cut the new tips on an angle on the outer end so they look stock and square on the muffler end. Didn't need any clamps. They've been on there for years and have rust welded themselves to the original tips. They've never moved on either tractor.

    Yesterday I hooked up the engine and got it running. Gotta put the grill, hood and side covers on it and mount the blower yet. Wouldn't turn over at first but I cleverly deduced that the starter cable needed to be connected to the solenoid. Spun around like the tasmanian devil after that but still wouldn't start so I checked everything over. Couldn't find anything wrong. Then the little light bulb went on over my head and I realized the gas tank was bone dry. Haven't used that tractor since March. I doubt I ran out of fuel just as I parked it and the tank was never out so I must have drained the tank using the fuel line. Don't recall. Put some gas in it and it roared to life. It always blows oil smoke on startup and I had the shop doors all closed. Only took a few seconds to require the middle bay door to be opened so I could see and breath again.

    That engine swapping you are doing Army seems like a whole lot of applied ambition! I love reading of your exploits.

    Installed the new pulley that gabby told me about on my 49 blower. Fit perfectly and is MUCH better fitting than the sloppy old one. Plus is was dang near 100.00 cheaper than deere! I think I might actually be done with my winter set up...


    Sorry about the crooked pic but you get the idea.

    I've done 532 removals and installs enough times I never have to think about what to do or when to do it. Sometimes it's been pretty annoying though. Like the time I had to pull an engine out just to replace a bad starter with a snowstorm in progress. Some guys say they've done it just by lifting the engine up but it would be really awkward to do it that way and almost as much work as yanking the engine right out. The top starter bolt would definitely be a real PITA. And even with it blocked up I don't like the idea of having my hands under there anyway. I did make an exception one time when I forgot to hook the cable up to the starter till I had the tractor back together.
