Re: What odd jobs did you do today? bunkclimber 8 hours ago
started digging into a customer generator, 20kw Deutz diesel on a trailer, customer stated they couldnt get 240V on the receptacles..dug into it and one SqD QO 60amp breaker had one lead wire loose the other was hanging, lug screw musta backed off due to vibration-action..never had to put Loctite on SqD breaker lug screws before..not really recommended but there's always a first time.

Clear and chilly, but December is here..fuel oil is 3.70/Gal

Re: new blades for Mower King skid steer mower bunkclimber 11/29/2023 12:06 PM
the gearbox on the mower only has a 1/2" npt port for adding oil. the owners manual states add 'oil' thru the port..with no mention of what viscosity to use..typical chinma manual.
for now the synthetic 80w90 will do it,the seals just have a seep to them,class 1 leak. I'll reinvestigate it in the spring

Cant lengthen the levers,---they already over a foot long stickin up in my face, -- Totally HATE 2 stick controls, I'm used to 6 to 13 levers on shit! lol!
Airport here wont sell gas to the general public, found that out years ago,---they real asses here about that. Motor runnin now mostly without the choke on since I took carb apart and blowed air in it, put it back together and after an hour or so the motor started smoothing out.

Maybe after the valve bank wears a bit things will improve. Thats how I bent the tooth, when it jerked I hit the side of the stump that didnt move! 13hp bending teeth tells me they are soft iron, so now on to finding/modifying REAL teeth to bolt on it. Dont want to weld teeth on it, too hard to get damaged ones off.

Still need the flow control valve on it ----- would be real handy for my kind of diggin!

I couldn't even make it myself for what I paid, including RB auction commission and tax. I always try to buy USA made..But raw material costs are thru the roof,and it would take at least a whole section of 3/8"plate to make one..plus the energy to plasma cut out all the parts,grind,fit and weld it together. If it breaks again, I'll just weld it back up.

sometimes the chains are SO out of whack I can only do the best to straighten it out, Im pretty good at it- but when its totalled..it becomes a "stump chain" or a chain used to cut stump roots,one or two uses in the rocks and dirt and thats it
