    That frame is a lot heavier than the one on my old wrangler. I'm impressed.

    I restored a 1955 Lyman boat including “improving” the steering my wife had the pleasure of steering it the wrong way on a busy lake. Because I had to drive our truck to the rental cabin. She wasn’t smiling for the picture driving back.

    The gas can spout hits home with me! On mine it popped apart and a long spring fell into the gas tank not to mention the half gallon of gas that spilled into the environment which I think these things were invented to prevent. probably another government mandate. Never spilled gas with the old vented cans. sorry about the rant.

    Makes me cringe watching you put those rubber grommets and hoses on without proper lube.

    I put a thin coat of Threebond 1184 on any grommet before i put it in a plastic tank, because I was tired of them leaking. I have never had one leak afterwards on my two cycle stuff.

    I didnt understand the need for the jack when you were installing the plow. The stand the mower was on goes up and down doesn't it?

    Hey Mustie1 just wanted to pass a tip to you from the automotive industry. They have fuel line at Napa and im sure other parts stores that is specifically designed to be submerged in gasoline. If you submerge regular fuel line it will gum up and fall apart..not a huge deal but seems a lot of that type of equipment may have this same setup so just wanted to pass it along. I found out about it on South main autos channel doing a older jeep Cherokee fuel pump. I was like ohhh wow never heard of it.. Have a good one and loving your videos.

    I find that some sputum in the inside of the hose would make it slip on easily to the fitting. That is the best lub. and does not deteriorate the rubber as oil my do.

    This is a great series. I have a 318 with the loader (use it all the time), mowing deck and I picked up a tiller. The 318 has the rear PTO, but not the mechanical assembly with the pulley to drive the tiller. I need to tear the tiller down, restore it and paint it, but I am trying to find the manual and that pulley assembly. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    It must be so annoying having to move the camera every time you change what you are fixing I was going to do videos many years ago but couldn't be bothered one reason being that I don't like anyone especially meat eaters and two I cannot be bothered to solicit TVclip and their adverts so I double triple respect you for your humbleness

That was a two day ordeal it was a bad 45 degree coupler now all I working. One side note my neighbor seen what happened they said i moved like grease lightning now that they know what really happened they feel bad for not helping me. That H fluid actually broke the skin. Thank the good old lord I has insurance. All better now. Lol.

    A little 2 cycle oil works good for lubrication on fuel lines and tank fittings. As long as your line is good with fuel it's fine with the 2 cycle oil.

    Wow you got a lot done on the 310, wow if the person was paying hourly they'd have to go get a new tractor. Unless you work for nothing just the joy of fixing all sorts of equipment, Tractors, lawn mowers chainsaws, motor bikes you name it if it has a motor you can fix it. Like your videos very informative.

    Love your videos, especially this "series" on the free, non running, John Deere lawn tractor. One suggestion though. Could you go back and put numbers on each one so that they are easier to sequence. I tried to send them to a friend that works on riding lawn equipment, and had a hard time putting them in order for him. I'm not really sure that I even got them all. Thanks.

    Thanks brother. Great vid. Great wrenching stuff. Btw that tractor looks tough as nails. I'm thinking they don't build them like that anymore.

    I am late to the party but you are installing the cylinders backwards. The chrome is supposed to face the tractor

    it might have been wrong when you found it but i think they just got switched
    i think the ram you had on the side to side should be the raise and lower

    I had a verry similar experience when I cleaned out the rust in my 1967 f250 gas tank becouse when I shook some nuts around inside to nock loose the rust I heard a large clatter and when I was getting the nuts out there was one of those steel flex lines from those old school gas cans that someone must have broken off in there.

    Make sure you used the fuel line that is made to be submerged! Great video BTW!

  • Josh Fuerth

    replace that 90degree fitting with a new one, but when you install it make it point away from the angle cylinder instead of up. that should fix your clearance issue

    pic of the hydraulic lines on this plow shows the one that broke going to the side and not up toward the frame. hope it will work for this one Love seeing all the work and bringing stuff bake to life!

    Easy outs are a last ditch effort lol, center punch and hammer usually work better for me, I think easy outs wedge the metal out making it tighter typically
