  1. My 300 Us torque amp wasn't doing anything and the main clutch was not the best, so I decided to split the tractor. The main clutch plate was worn down almost to the plate itself. Looking at the end of the shaft that goes into the pilot bearing it looks like only the very end was touching the bearing! Like the shaft was too short. I could pull the shaft back and forth about a 1/4", is that normal? Now the main reason I got into this anyway. Took the cover off the amp clutch area and the fingers on the pressure plate are worn completely off! The throw out bearing is non moveable the disk is good. This bearing has no way of lubing it. Now I am wondering how this thing work's.? I assume that when you pull the lever back the clutch is released, is that right? How then does it get it's power? Can I just eliminate the clutch and not have the Amp? I don't really need it for what I use it for.
  2. How the heck could a person think up such?
  3. That was the right thing to do and a very brave thing also.
  4. Some of the info was on classic tractor fever this past Saturday.

    Do those machines automatically level them selves? You must be fearless to do that!
  6. Fly tiers use them while making fishing flies.
  7. THERE ARE SOME TUTORIALS ON YOUTUBE. I FOLLOWED ONE OF THEM AND FOUND THE AIR FLAPPER BROKEN OFF SO IT WAS LAYING OVER THE OPENING FOR THE FAN. BY DROPPING JUST THE FAN DOWN YOU CAN REMOVE THE FLAPPER THROUGH THE HOLE. IF A OLD 82 YEAR OLD LIKE ME CAN DO IT ANYONE CAN ! THERE CAN BE A COUPLE OF OTHER THINGS THAT CAN CAUSE LOOSE OF HEAT SO LOOK AT THE VIDEOS. iT TOOK ME ABOUT A HOUR TO DO IT AND NOW IT'LL ROAST YOU OUT, LOTS OF HEAT NOW. THIS SEEMS TO BE A COMMON PROBLEM WITH DODGES.
  8. Nice to see the Cub doing what it was meant for.
  9. I have the same problem with my 03. I thought it could be a cabin air filter but, they don't have one. Where does it get it's air? Could it be plugged up with mouse nest? Where is the air inlet?
  10. This is a hand saw filing vise that you could clamp onto a board or bench top.
  11. I posted this in projects but, didn't get much response. When replacing the sleeves on my 300U should I pack them in dry ice or will they slide in easily at room temp?
  12. Don't forget the one who gave us all that we have. By His grace we are the most blessed country ever! He gave it all so we can have it all. Peace be with you my friends and may God bless you.
  13. Well, I thought I was done rebuilding, but this came up. The starter ring gear is bad, so I thought I'd split the tractor and replace it. Then I thought you know it burns a little oil so why not do a head and ring job too. Well, the sleeves are up to .016 out of round so not just a ring job anymore! It has dry sleeves so is there any tricks to removing and replacing them? Bearings look like new, and it does have 60 pounds oil pressure when warmed up, so I think a sleeve, piston, ring kit will do. Any recommendation's as to where to buy them?
  14. I believe it's a Hawk Owl, nice picture!
