  1. Replaces the original bulb in the older lights. https://www.steinertractor.com/ABC3857-6-or-12-volt-LED-Light-Bulb
  2. Hah! Bitty I had that exact same wiring smoke experience with my 450 several years ago! The ammeter fried.
  3. You just need to specify a "cold climate" mini split. The inverter drive heat pump is good to -15 to -20 or so. .
  4. Wow, that is a lot to endure. Prayers sent, lots of them.

    Can't beat a good hot radiator on a really cold day!
  8. Sending prayers to your Mom and you and everyone.
  9. Shouldn't be too hard to find a pair of brake drums. eBay, salvage yards, 50 to 100$. As said, it would be way easier.
  10. A neighbor of mine years ago had two H's in daily use. One had virtually smooth shiny pedals with barely a outline of the diamond pattern. He estimated that the tractor had between 20 and 25,000 hours. It was purchased new in 1946 and was the main tractor on their dairy for a long time.
  11. The picture of the complete housing has the smooth bull pinion shafts with the brake "drum" retained with a large woodruff key. The smooth shaft was used from S/N 501 to about S/N 70,000 approximately. After which the splined shaft was used.
  12. I run Husqvarna XP synthetic +2 in my Husqvarna saws and trimmer. Never had any issues ever. My understanding is that it is best to use the oil designed for the equipment you are running it in. We had a Still MS 280 at the place in Maine, the fellow running it was using BRP Evinrude oil in the saw as it was handy since we have an Evinrude outboard. The saw tended to foul plugs and not run well, but it was used anyway. A few years ago it was replaced with a MS281, the shop saying that outboard oil has different additives and is designed for a completely different operating environment. We use Still oil in the new saw, runs great! Since this is an oil thread, if motor oil comes from petroleum, sunflower oil from sunflowers and soybean oil from soybeans..... Where does baby oil come from??
  13. When I got my 450 it had a 4d finish nail holding the throttle lever like in picture 3 & 4.
  14. No..... Happy new Year!😃🎆
  15. Happy Birthday 🎂🎈🎊!
