  1. Thanks for the reply bitty. I've been looking for a loader for a while. Was happily surprised to see one pop up pretty close to and sized to fit my model tractor. Just need to see if it is doable. Iowaboy. Nope. I just remove the arms and plow. Actually, I don't remove the arms. I just disconnect the lower pins and tie the arms back and upright to the frame. My long shot hope was that there was enough in the pics that shows how the new loader and hydraulics would fit right into my existing frame. Probably something that never happens but I'd figure I'd ask. Sometimes you get lucky! Thanks for the reply. Paul
  2. Thanks snoshoe I didn't know that the frame could be the reservoir but it makes sense. I don't know much about loaders beyond the international 33a power loader (plow only) I have now so the missing drive shaft is new to me. I googled and see it's apparently a splined shaft but that's all I know. Searcyfarms. Does the loader I'm looking at resemble the koyker Super K you had? My current plow is a bit of a wresting match to get on each year (I'm not getting any younger!) So it would be good to know that this isn't gonna be much worse. Everyone. What are the odds I can buy this loader and use the bucket and hydraulic remotes with my current international power loader. For the 2 or so years I've owned they tractor, come spring, I take the loader off and put the mower on the back. Thanks all. Paul (sorry for the upload pic failures. I'm using a loaner phone while mine is getting fixed)
  3. Thanks everybody for the input on weight. So, regarding mimi's comments. This requires a separate pump and reservoir? Paul
  4. I've been looking for a loader for my 300 utility. I already have a front plow. I found this on fb market place. Ad says it's for a 300 or 350 utility. It's about 120 miles from me and I need to figure out how much it weighs and whether my utility trailer is strong enough to haul it. As you can see in the pics it's pretty old piece of equipment and I can't see any markings. I'm calling the owner tomorrow or Thursday to learn more. Having someone haul it that distance would probably push it out of my desired price range. I'm ok with your best semi-educated guess, it might help me get to an average. Thanks for your help! Paul
  5. Forecasted 7 to 12 in my part of the Adirondack mountains in NY. Only got about 5 or 6. Didn't really need to use the tractor but thought I'd i have a little fun. My wife instantly figured what I was up to so but her car cleaned up a bit first.
  6. I don't know maybe it's just me, but if you shoot a gun at a police station the results seem fairly predictable. That said, prayers needed for all involved.
  7. Hello and welcome! I've received many excellent suggestions that I've been able to use on this thread. Great bunch of knowledgeable folks here. Having a mid 1950's tractor I've had many of the same questions and the answers you received are consistent. I've been fortunate that most of the suggestions allowed me to repair what I have rather then making new purchases. (Except tune up and maintenance where shortcuts don't pay.) I'm surprised nobody asked for pictures. That's usually the first request! Good luck. Paul
  8. Praying for you and your family.
  9. Hi Ron Sorry to be dense here but I don't want to take any chances. Are you (and R190) saying it is ok to disconnect this shut-off and reconnect the 2 wires from the tractor directly to the 2 posts on the generator in the same way the old generator was connected? Thanks! Paul
  10. Thanks Ron. I should have included that my tractor does have a voltage regulator. The old generator did not have this cut out. Can I simply disconnect this cut out and re attach the two wires running from the tractor to the posts on the generator as they were original generator? Thanks! Paul R190. Thanks for the advice. My inclination is to make everything tight!! Thanks! Paul
  11. I will try to brief for a change. I recently posted about charging issues and the need to occasionally jump start. My tractor is 6 volt, positive ground. Per previous post, I had success cleaning all connections and tractor was starting fine but still reading "D"ischarge. I work out of town frequently but was squeezing some mowing in, smelled a burning smell and my generator was smoking badly and needs replacing. Note. I've been debating converting to 12 volt but purchased a new battery and lights less then a year ago so I've not decided. While working out of town, I decided to bid on a used generator on ebay. Seller seems to have a good reputation just a couple of negative reviews concerning shipping. Has many years selling history and many parts for many brands of tractors. I successfully bid about 55% of asking price and received this generator. It comes with no guarentee of course (seller states he was told it was recently rebuilt) and for what I paid, it won't break the bank if its junk. I got back in town Saturday. It is exactly as appeared but as I'm getting ready to install I find I'm a bit unsure of whether what appears to be a resistor fitted to the top can damage my tractor. I've been extremely fortunate with all of the used parts I've purchased so far and appreciate your thoughts and help here. Thank you!
  12. I loved reading and that helped me get through school but was terrible in math. Only got though college by taking my 1 required math course during a winter session course. With no one around I was forced to do nothing but math for 4 weeks. Just barely passed with a C. My Pop rest his soul (would be in his 90's now) never got past the 7th grade but was an amazing carpenter. Could build homes from the foundation up. (Literally, from taking the transit out to an open lot, laying out the foundation right up to the roofing) Was capable in all trades: plumbing, masonry, carpentry of course but did not like electrical. Always told his 5 boys to leave that for the electricians. He retired into remodeling kitchens and baths. Turned the garage into his shop. He tried to teach me how to build cabinets and the like but other than gluing laminate for countertops, I was pretty much useless. He had virtually no education but could drop a corner sink into a counter top perfectly everytime. Same with laying out stairs. I've seen many good carpenters screw up steps over and over, the old man would just take a few measurements, take the pencil out from behind his ear, draw a crude picture, and ther e thou have it, perfectly fitted steps. The talent skipped right past me, that's how I ended up in college in the 1st place, I would have starved as a carpenter! I miss watching my pop work. Never frantic or rushed, easy pace, efficient motion, and even if he was just using a shovel always seemed to get a more done then the next guy.

    From judge Judy (I'm a fan too) to Ben and all high paid athletes, entertainers etc,. They only make that much money because of demand. Nobody forces us to go see in person, on tv, buy merchandise etc. Look at the bright side, it's proof that capitalism/free markets work. Think of how angry most of us would be if we lived in country that wouldn't allow them to make that kind of money. Some of these people actually give back to their community so that's an upside as well.
