Tom.....That snow blower is either a 49 blower that will fit your 318. Or a 47 blower that will fit either the 420 or 318 with the proper frame mount I think. For that kind of money, I'm betting it's the 49.
Tom, if it is a two-stage it is surely not a 47 blower. My guess is he is probably talking about a model 46 blower which is basically a 49 blower that has a hydraulic chute added and I believe (but not positive) was made to fit the 420 (and 430?) but can also be made to fit the 318. If you look in the resto/hydro postings there is a thread on one right now !....Ed.
Here's one for you guys/gals. I replaced the mounting bracket on a mule drive that came with my 316. Long ago when I pulled it off I knew it didn't look right since it was missing one side of the mounting bar. Does this bracket look familiar to anyone? Is it supposed to be this way? Was a special bracket like this used for something else? Why would it be made like this do you think? Was it pulled apart at one time and a new bar welded on?
The receiver bracket underneath the front of the tractor is fine. There's nothing as far as the mounting bracket slots are concerned that would warrant this bracket to be built this way. Since it almost looks like the rod is factory I was just curious to know if this was a special made bracket.
Can someone tell me weather or not if I reg. my tractors if the ones already on there will be counted twice. I'm sure I must have reg. a couple before. I know that none were prev. owned by members. I should be able to add about 25. Don't want to screw up count.
AJ Thanks, I got my tires, ordered, and my front wheels, They should be in next week. I will post a pic when I get them put on
Harold/Roy On its way... Ha Ha Its been sunny here, but its been pretty cold. I wish we would get a little bit of snow, not to much though, I work for the Alabama Department of Transportation, and we just are not equipped to handle a big snow event.
OH BTW, Here is my new Plow Day Tractor LOL My family thought it would be funny to get me this for Christmas, YES I PLAYED WITH IT. LOL I have put in back in the box, I am going to save it for when me and my wife have kids...
Romeo Isabelle Jr. - Thank you bud. I was suspicious about that bracket ever since I saw it but I wasn't totally sure. Boy, I'm not sure why in the world someone would do that to a mounting bracket but it takes all kinds.
Larry A. Decker - Good lookin' picture of your 214 and "Yes" I'm Thinking Spring.
John W. Smith - Nice 140 H3. Looks like it's in pretty darn good shape for sure. Nice lookin' clock too.
Larry F. Hall - That 317 looks pretty darn good as well.
John Lang - Happy New Year to you as well!!!
