It looks as though this season will go down in history as "The Winter that never was." As such, we find ourselves a full week into February and no one is getting to use their tractors. There they sit with either a snowcaster or utility blade on the front and not a thing to do except rust. It's still too early to take those items off or to put on a mowing deck. All of the forums are relatively dead in the water because no one has much of anything to talk about. Tractors are not breaking anything nor are they refusing to start. No one is having issues with plowing or blowing snow because there is no snow.....anywhere. I should be seeing two foot high snow banks on both sides of my road but all I see is bare grass that I could actually mow if I wanted to. I cannot recall a winter like this one.....EVER.

I'd love to see more chatter on the boards here but I'm chalking up the lack of activity to the weirdest winter on record and not to the fact that I forgot to apply my underarm deodorant a few days ago. :thumbsup: :sidelaugh: :trink: :canada:

Yea But,.
Its still a great time for mods and rebuilds, I ordered raw material today for a mod on the front attachment mount, My Idea is to make these joints serviceable, Instead of watchin the holes get bigger and the pins get smaller. The plan is to never wear a pin, a hole, or a slot :think: :thumbsup: EJ

In the interest of increased activity.

I volunteer to start threads asking the following questions:

What year is my tractor ?

Which hydraulic oil should I use ?

How much does my tractor weigh ?

Who is this wench Hilda ?

:sidelaugh: :sidelaugh:

Besides, :letitsnow: may still come back and bite our collective butts..

I took my chances this winter and left the mower deck on the tractor. Im glad I did as I have not got any snow this winter that was worth taking the tractor out of the shed for.

I've actually gotten to use both of my tractors this year. One day we had about 3" of snow, so I broke out the articulated with the plow. One other time we got about 6" so I used the blower on the 4016. Sounds like I'm one of the lucky ones!! It really wouldn't bother me if I was prepared, but never had to use them in the winter.

I've also had the Super Bowl blaahs all week. I thought about banning BBY for a couple of days because he was the only member I could think of off the top of my head that was from NY. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Well, I had noticed that most of the pump supports Kohler powered tractors are power red. The one on my '76-444 is black. I was wondering for future reference if that was correct for that tractor or should it be power red. I decided to look at the part number for both tractors I have and the number is the same. The one on the '74 is power red and am fairly confident it is original. Therefore I concluded that power red is correct for the '76 not black. Being that I figured this out with help from the Tech Section, I guess I don't have anything to post about. :headscratcher:

Is there such a thing as High Heat power red , yes/no, where can I buy it ?

---oldfrank--- :canada:
oldfrank, Home Depot sells Rust-oleum High Heat Chevy Orange which is very, very close to the power red. The can says it resists heat to 500 degrees. In my area the home depot has it on the floor in the paint area, you have to look good to find it. If not Autozone and auto part stores sell Chevy Orange also I think it is going to be the closest match available to the power red.

Thanks Markgru2919, I'll take a trip down to the Home depot soon and check it out, it's to spray the motor on my 446. I try to keep ahead the materials needed by a few weeks.

Bart, the project I'm working will require the engine to be painted power red to match the rest of the frame. You are right stating that it should be black, how ever I have gone completely wacko with this new build. I just want the end result to be as close in body style and color scheme as possible.
have a good one ---oldfrank--- :canada:

{ ps. I my be having to many beers on this job}
