Mowmentum Magazine / IMOW/Super Stock story
« on: September 30, 2009, 11:37:51 PM »
A neat feature story that I'd appreciate comments on is the IMOW/Super Stock division. I know at the us nationals, Pierece and one of the Sullivans raced the same machine in JP and IMOW. (And this thread was in the Coffee Shop, too). What's it like participating in so much back-and-forth racing?

Follow up question, what's a realistic ball park for a starter mower...?

Deadline for the November edition will be Oct. 22. That leaves me a week to design the content and get it to the printer and upload to magcloud by the first of November.

Stories may be submitted in any fashion, complete stories (which would include your byline if you want[trust me, it's neat to see your name in print and I've been doing it for 12 years]) or just finishin order and I can compose them into a little story.

Spelling of names is very important. The rest of the grammar I can catch, although a few typos can be expected.

Thanks for the support everyone. Looking forward to working with you quite a bit more.

Had time to move a few more onto photobucket. Here's a couple more for thumbs.

I think these are the results...

The names look familiar, anyway.

Here are a few pics from the nationals. I'll upload more after 5 ... hate to abuse the company's high-speed too much.

I don't know most of these guys' names, but they seemed like good folks. Got a bunch more I'll put on later. If you were there, shoot me a PM and I'll see if I have an action shot of ya.

I just started ebaying, and I have up for auction a fuel oil stove ( It ends in a couple days, but for my heymow pals, I could hold on to it and even include the tank. Was going to scrap it. Don't think I have the regulator, though.

I can post a pic when I get home. My 1999 Mac doesn't agree with photobucket for some reason.

Driveline / Re: Losing neutral?

Haven't looked internally yet. Have one more race with this one, then I'll look. Hopefully it'll hold.

Driveline / Losing neutral?
« on: July 15, 2007, 10:56:16 PM »
Has anyone ever heard of losing neutral? It happened on my Peerless 820. After a race, on a course so tight I could only get in second, I brought it back to the pit and I couldn't hit neutral. I ended up taking the direct drive off and put on a centrifugal pulley system, that way I really don't need it as long as the RPMs are down. The shifter rod (Toro 210) is just off the steering column. Have to depress it to get in reverse. But there's no stop between 1st and neutral, and no position on the rearend where the wheels can spin free. Ever witnessed this before?

Tires / Re: Having trouble removing my wheels....

Don't know if you got it off yet, but I had to weld nuts on to mine, then use a gear puller, but if you plan on re-using your rims, not a good idea. In another instance, I had the tranny sitting on concrete block with a 2x4 under the tires. Unbolt the top of the case, extract each axle, then us a rubber Get a dremel and polish the axles up once the tire's off. Unless you go with a new straight axle.

On a side note, chalk your tires. If they move once that case is off, and if you aren't paying attention, then it shifts all those gears all around. Learned the hard way on that one.
