  1. If lifted all the way up, does it drop on its own to the mowing height (rather quickly)?  I am assuming the cam on the frame is limiting mower drop to correct cutting height.

    If it drops quickly to cutting height,  I would suggest a blown piston o ring on the cylinder.

    If it holds it up, I wonder if the implement lift relief spring has broken and you don't have implement lift pressure building any higher than normal charge pump pressure.  650-700# vs 180-200# of pressure. 

    Lift relief is on top center of hydro, in front of check valves and directly above charge pump.  Looks like a tall 1/2" bolt head just off center.  You can see it below, between 3/8" tubing connections. You can clean area, remove cap/spring/shims/relief dart and check for debris holding relief open or broken spring.

  2. Couldn't see rest of foot rest.....issues with mounting there make sense.

    I wouldn't worry about corrosion.   Unless you are regularly leaving it outside in the rain for extended periods there just isn't much corrosion going on there.   A dab of silicone fixes it either way.

  3. It won't hurt anything.  I'd skip the self tap and use a longer 1/4" bolt all the way through.

    Better yet, mount them under the foot rest, angled out.  Better wire protection,  easier mounting access, and not structural.  1/4 bolt per bracket......done.

  4. 3 hours ago, Big Bud guy said:

    Didn’t IH make a modern offset like the JD 900HC.  If they did I’d go after something with modern features and transmissions.  Local Hutterite colony I’m friends with use a pair of 140s for their gardens.  I wouldn’t go any older then that 

    IH had a replacement for the 140......the 274.  A 284 offset.

    That would be the latest greatest option, but I hear parts can be hard to get for the 274/284 machines.

  5. Usually don't give a rip about "sports ball", but friends invited us over to watch it and we had a nice chill evening.   Game was entertaining,  could have gone either way.  Half time was ehhhhh at best.  Commercials have gotten so deep they were hard to understand. 

    Taylor was on screen 6-7 times, but they didn't dwell on it just quick clips.....didn't really distract IMHO.

    Overall I enjoyed the evening for what it was.......hanging out with friends watching some entertainment.
