Re: JD 1010 buying advise

Lucky doesn't apply to crawlers. No such thing. If it was an easy fix it most likely would have been done.

It will have to be really cheap....

Re: Yay! For Accu-Link Belts!

Something else came to mind about these belts. Put one on a table saw. It greatly smoothes up the saw's operation.

Re: Diagnose the problem??

Took it up the canyon mowing. I don't recall it ever running that smoothly. Trash could have been in there way before I bought and rebuilt it. Never had that fitting off before.

Re: Diagnose the problem??

Fuel bowl had a little in it, mostly clean flakes.

The filter on the fitting in the carb had a lot of junk in it! I will make a run up the canyon mowing again to see if it behaves.

If it does, back to town to mow the hill.

Missing on both.

I will get some time to check everything this weekend. I'll post the exam results. I hope it's not in the tank, it's almost full! 😂

Re: Diagnose the problem??

Almost a full tank of gas. I've mowed these exactly like I was doing today. I plan on pulling the bowl, also the line at the carb to see if fuel is flowing. When I loaded the first time, it was missing and came down fairly hard and that's when it started running fine. Thinking back, when I decided t...

Diagnose the problem??

I had to mow some steep lots today with the 420. I mowed the lower one which isn't very steep. Turned the crawler up hill and headed for the upper lots. It started missing badly, nearly quiting. I swung it sideways over a bank and back towards my truck 1/4 mile away. I was trying to decide if I shou...

Re: 2010c Engine Swap

There was one with the Wisconsin conversion along a road I travel occasionally. It kept moving and I'm assuming it was being used. It looked like a late 40. There were parts of another one there for a while but they disappeared. Finally had a 4 sale sign on it and it also disappeared.

Re: 10-10 Crawler loader

My brother used to restore antique engines. He said warm the engine and then put a big chunk of dry ice on the piston and it would literally fall out.

Re: 420C and a flail mower?

I mow 5 acres of very steep hillside every year with a brush hog. It's a 6 ft and I have modified the upper link hookup on it to allow extra movement should I hit a high ditch or slope. Sitting still, I have lifted the back of the crawler off the ground with the 3 pt.
