Dave, thanks for the link. For about the same price, I can get one from Kubota that screws directly into the block, so I'll probably go that way. I do plan on having this tractor for, well, for the price it darn well better last me the rest of my life!!!!!!! The Wheel Horses kept me going until they were 40 years old, so by the time I'm 97.......

Poncho, yeah, I've been know to haul tractors home that have been scrapped, parked in the weeds, and put them back into use. In fact, one of the runners I have I acquired this way.

Back to Dave. If it hadn't been so FREAKING COLD, I would have put the time into the PTO clutch on the Wheel Horse and not bought the Kubota. There just comes a point in time and circumstance when one changes direction, whether one was planning to or not. The cold and my inability to move determined mine.

I just went out (it's a balmy 42F) and started the tractor as fast as it ever started. Not a clue what happened last week with the clunks and strange noises, but now it's 'stuck' under the porch with way too much soggy snow(15-18 inches) on the path to the driveway to be of much use.

Oh well.......

That sounds like a good excuse to me , , you didn't really want to plow snow today anyway did ya,,,

 

 we are getting rain like you won't believe, I'm having to run a pump to keep water off the back patio to keep it  from running under the house, through the crawl access door    , we had a hell of a snow storm here last week,, NOTHING COMPAIRED TO WHAT YOU NORTHERN FOLKS GET but a lot for this area  8"wink put the whole area in a standstill,, sure glad it don't snow like that all the time,,, I'd have to move to Hawaii or something,,,biggrin
