  1. Bought a 1973 140 with a broken bellhousing/tunnel. I have it off and looking for a used one and tractor yards can`t tell me what models would interchange. They say bring some wrenches and take one off and if it ain`t right, bring it back. Everybody says a SA/100/130 etc SHOULD be the same.
  2. Man! Wished I had known this 40 yrs ago! Especially on the ones without the recess in the casting to access the edge!
  3. Read on another forum about mig welding on an installed race and it will then fall out. Doesn`t make sense but then again, neither do I...

    mine does the same on my pc and my phone but MORE frequently on phone.
  5. Tony, I am one of many who have never met you but have great respect for you. We have had and hope to continue having a great bunch of members on this forum. This country is enduring great changes affecting us all. During the calm times, such forums, which consist of citizens of all walks of life, experienced tranquility. That calm has been disturbed by none of us. We tend to express our emotions on such places as this. It gets heated. Simply whip the lawbreakers but not the entire forum. I have endured much worse than this as have us all. It is dividing a great group. Unfortunate but truthful. My bills will be paid with or without Red Power. That is my quest. Imo, the time out has been destructive to us all. My dad guided me, but didn't make me feel unworthy or like a child. And with that, allow me to say gnite.

    Hmm my/our use in life. Now THERE'S a topic to re-open Coffee Shop with! Better write that down....where did my pen go..........
  7. Only been to 2 roundups. When I met forum members, we didn`t sit and discuss engines, we had fun. We didn`t discuss oil or paint or tire brands, we had fun. We didn`t rebuild any engines or control valves, we had fun. We drank a beer, went out to eat and watched the perty girls walk by. We had fun. Kinda like coffee shop, we have/had fun. If you see a post from me, it`ll either be a joke/ask for prayer/marital problems or sarcasm towards another member THAT I KNOW! I have nothing to offer in General IH. No tractor mechanic for sure and don`t want to be. If I see something I don`t like, I don`t read it. Yeah, the good old days are gone but I still try to have a little fun. And if I`m one of the disturbers, don`t hold your breath waiting for an apology. Me is me and I`m OK with that.
  8. this forum is for technical talk/questions, not pictures. ask a question or remove it.
  9. Assuming that is the pole you installed with a red tractor?

    Thank you ALL for the input. My friend stopped by and helped me work on the mower deck last night. A carpenter's hands are better than no help eh? He told me some anonymous person paid for 6 weeks rental of the van he is taking his daughter to Philly in for brain cancer treatments! Hallelujah! We both got weepy AND got the mower deck aligned and drive belt replaced. Weeds, here we come!
  12. Have had various boosters from different sources. Then I learned I could replace battery available anywhere. Interstate/battery warehouse/napa All of mine used same battery. $70ish. Duh!

    I have a SA.i bought it with a bad motor.wouldnt run.i had a good motor.i tore it all apart, got new motor in and it runs great.but the steering is real sloppy cause if I use any gear higher than 2, it shakes real bad.plus tranny makes really loud noises.all the gears work but noisy.i dont know what to do with it. Take motor out for another tractor or fix steering and tranny. Got a lot of money in it already.tires and wheels are good.so are brakes. Never had a tranny apart or even the steering box.wished I knew tranny and steering was bad before I bought it
  18. Well I understand why. Wished they drained all the ponds around here and my brother wouldn't have drowned. And I wished all 5 gallon buckets were crushed so my neighbors daughter wouldn't have fell in and drowned. My chest freezer I keep my feed in is safe. I put a hasp and lock on it. Not to keep the kids out but keep the horse out. But we are losing kids today to dope. What can we all do about that? Let's crush the dealers and save thousands of kids!
  19. U r crazy? Cut a 2" hole high in the back, cover with mesh. worlds best animal food storage money can buy.
  20. Caught my apprentice crushing a can of brakleen last week. I asked WTH are you doing. Said his SHOP teacher showed them to do that to get the last little bit out! Told him don`t EVER do that again in this shop. He dropped his head and threw it in the garbage can.
  21. Um, I thought I did. Did I miss something?
  22. The biggest. Ask anyone on RPF
  23. Thx for the heads up. Flushed it out
