    i got my wheel horse deck all put back together. The belt was bad and with the angle drives you have to take it all apart to get the belt on. When i got it apart basicly needed an entire rebuild. the bearings were bad the gears needed to be shimmed tighter and the cast iron plate on the bottom was broke so i had to add braces. I got it all done and mowed the lawn. stalled it out here by the pond and it wouldnt start again because the starter belt was chunked apart. Fixed that in the field and finished up. Parked it in the garage and now there is oil everywhere. Seems like the pan gasket is bad so i guess iv got to pull the engine out.

    I’m dying to get my hands on a JD 318, Wheel Horse 416, or a sears suburban. I had a sears FF-18 with the hydro lift deck and 3 point hitch. I miss that unit.

    I had a jd140 h3 that was a beefy unit i had a plow for it too. Right now i have a
    Gravely 8123 im trying to sell. Its just too beefy for my needs and takes up too much room in the shed. I like this wheel horse sofar its a good size. Kinda lacking power but it does ok revd up just have to wear ear muffs.

    Been gathering parts for a 23 T-Bucket project. Have a new 5.3 block in a separate goodie pile. Couldn't pass up the CJ5 so it will just wait longer 002.JPG DSC05004.JPG 001.JPG intake.jpg 001 (2).JPG front susp.jpg 517.jpg 1131.jpg

    Cylinder head for the Z24 came today. Not bad for $335 and free shipping. Shame they didn't deburr the head after resurfacing but still not a bad value.

    My '09 Ram's chrome Nerf Bars were in terrible condition. The PO had them installed by the dealership when he bought the truck new. I was prepared to go to the metal yard today and fab my own using the existing brackets and 2" X 4" tube stock. I woke up with a different idea...Why not? I had nothing to lose?

    $14 dollars later. [​IMG]

    Here's what I did...

    Tools. Some type of flap looking disc on the grinder. A chisel to pick off the chrome flakes.

    I put the mounting bolts back in to give the tube some legs for the top side.

    Used some Purple Power and cleaned up the plastic.
