2  General / Coffee Shop / Bert's new car on: April 24, 2014, 12:54:17 PM
Bert just got himself a new ride. Sure, it's not a Pinto, but its big block Chevrolet power.

Come on over and take all you want of this crap...This is what I woke up to this morning.

4  General / Coffee Shop / Anyone work at an implement dealer? (Bobcat) on: April 12, 2014, 06:48:06 PM
Anyone work on or for a dealer who services Bobcat equipment?
I just picked up a skid steer, and wanted to get a service manual. I found a few places online to supposedly download it for a fee, and I found some on eBay for around $100, but am skeptical that they are what I am actually looking for..

6  General / Coffee Shop / Redwing boots on: January 07, 2014, 08:26:55 PM
Anyone wear steel toe Red wings? If so, check yours for recall. Free replacement it looks like.

This is how we move snow around here.

It's even Ford powered, so chances are it will end up cleaning the lot at Bertrand Hydraulics..
8  General / Coffee Shop / Some help for my daughter's class project on: September 12, 2013, 08:18:22 PM
My oldest daughter's second grade class is currently learning the states, and about them.
They are trying to get postcards sent to them from other states. Something simple, like with the state animal, flower, etc.
If anyone would be willing to pick up a postcard and drop it in the mail, it would be greatly appreciated! No need to write anything on it, just a black postcard with address will do. PM me for the address to send it to.
Thanks!
9  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / 28 vs 31 avs piston dimentions on: August 08, 2012, 11:33:27 AM
I dont have a 31avs piston in hand to measure, but is the only difference between them the diameter? Pin height and diameter the same? Ring land locations and size? Overall height and "face" thickness?

Also, are the 31ci crankpin journal the same width as a 28ci crank?

I still have some 28 stuff, but only a 31ci "standard" (non avs) piston, and no 31ci cranks anymore to measure.
10  Engine Help / Kohler Engines / Magnum 8hp on: April 21, 2012, 12:55:21 PM
My Dad has a Kohler Magnum 8hp on a Troy-built roto tiller, and it needs some work. I cannot locate any numbers on the engine to look up parts with. Anyone know where they would be located on this thing? It is a horizontal shaft l-head.
11  Mower Building / Setup Help / Garden Tractor Pulling / Kohler K-series, and horizontal input transaxle on: June 06, 2009, 02:11:28 PM
I have a Kohler here. Other than that it is not siezed I know nothing about it. I also have this transaxle. Both were in a large Ford LGT12 garden tractor. I also know nothing about the transaxle, other than it feels like it goes into gear, and the input will turn the axles when in gear. Has large 5 bolt hubs, and weighs a ton! It looks like it would be good for pulling, but there are no manufacturer markings that I can find, even behind the brake asm. Not sure even as to how many speed it is. H-type pattern shift, but feels like it has 4 detents on each leg of the H...if that makes sence.

Both located in central Wi. Shipping is not an option due to weight, but I would consider parting engine out, and those pieces can be shipped. So, with that said, it would need to be picked up, or I will be at the following ARMA national events for sure- LaGrange,In.  Henry,Il.  Valpraiso,In.   Oskaloosa,Ia   and Oshkosh,Wi.  I would be willing to bring to those events for pick-up as well. MAKE OFFER on any, or all. If nobody claims it by the end of June, I will be disassembling them for scrap.



12  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Walbro lmt seat on: March 08, 2009, 08:26:10 PM
What I have here are 2 carbs, both that do not appear to have a removeable fuel inlet seat. Can this be machined to accept the standard fuel pump seat, or is there something different insde that makes them undesireable. The one in question is on the right in the picture, next to a standard old lmt.



I know they can be run with a fuel pump, with a gravity inlet, but the engine it would be on is relatively mild, and I don't want to mess with fuel dumping all over out the vent.
13  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Crankshaft taper on: January 23, 2009, 10:45:08 PM
Are there different lengths to the taper/threads on the old style (removeable eccentric) 28ci cranks? Reason I ask, is that I have one here that is shorter than all the others. If you set a flywheel on it (ARC wheel) the top of the crank is even with the top of the flywheel. Dimentionally, everything else is the same, except the tapered portion of the flywheel side is about 1/2" shorter....anyone ran across this?
14  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Copper gaskets on: September 22, 2008, 09:12:49 AM
When installing a copper head gasket, should a coating, such as copper coat be applied? I always did it on automotive applications due to coolant, but is it neccesary on an air cooled engine?
15  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / 700 bushing discoloration on: May 26, 2008, 02:21:54 PM
I tore my 700 apart today, and I noticed that the bushing on the countershaft (it would be the one directly behind the drive sprocket) was slightly discolored on the top portion of it....looks like heat. Trans only had one race on it, and the bushings were new. I mic'd the countershaft, and it has no taper and is not out of round. Due to this being the front bushing, and it being mostly hidden from splash lube by the input and countershaft gears is this something that is normal, or do I have a problem with this trans?

Thanks,
Ed

By the way, trans was prepped per George's 700 thread.
