Hope he comes back a little closer Sam. Like said yesterday our bow season ended. I watched a doe out grazing the neighbors cornfield behind me then watched a monster buck stroll across the soybean field.Good morning. Had a buck ease out of the woods to our left into a path just out of range this am. Did not take the shot. Maybe next time. At least we saw one.
hi chipper - if you tinker with it and get it running, let us know why it wouldn't. all the readings I have done on rusty mags says does not hinder spark, unless build up prevents flywheel for rotating ~Good evening guys. Nice day here today, it's starting to cool back down, good working weather as long as it's not raining. Got the splitter I just bought running, pics taken, and listed. Still have another that doesn't have spark, quite a bit of rust on the coil/pickup, may try to tinker with it sometime, may not if someone else wants to. Also listed a little Yamaha ef2000is inverter generator. While have had many of Hondas version of these I've only had a few of the Yamaha's, some like that you can shut the fuel off on them and then run them dry, they are a little more complex though as far as controls go. Hope you guys had a great day.
reminds me of the old geezer with not so good eyesight bringing his wife a cup of tea. 'here's some tea for you honey' wife in orange pants bent over in garden...'no, I am over hear, dear!' lol.Good morning. 47*/clear. Happy Pumpkin Pie day and Happy Red Mitten day to our Canuckistan friends. Workin on the wood piles today and maybe checking out some dead trees in a guys pasture he said I could have. He thinks it's ash but not sure. Have a swell day guys.FS.
hi wcc - sure sounds like a headache to me. a big pricey one. guess it's back to the drawing board and... the parts counter, too! given u supplied s/n and I assume model #, too. sounds like a snafu somewhere out by the woodshed. but, little doubt in my mind... you will sort it all out and have your cat back in action... sooner or later! ~When ordering parts at Tormont CAT, you can't get a price on anything unless you give the S/N. With S/N, they supply me with exploded view diagrams. I order parts. They confirm parts. Straight forward process, no? No, it isn't. They were quick to take my $9,300 though.
Parts came in for this 2007 257B2 skid steer. 3 weeks now? Eager to get started yesterday morning. As is usually the case, there's always something....
The new tension arm is not the same size, much smaller. And it won't even fit in the new chassis bracket. And then upon closer inspection, the chassis frames themselves are different. A full 1/2 inch difference in the tubular steel. Front wheel axle is moved forward about 1-2 cm. Lower tension arm mount is moved back some couple inches. Bolts don't have the proper shoulder on them. I figured maybe using the top half of the old tension arm with the new lower half would work but the lower half won't even fit in its bracket on the new frame.

Had a buck ease out of the woods to our left into a path just out of range this am. Did not take the shot. Maybe next time. At least we saw one.
Bosses Kohler wouldn't fire with rust on the magnets, scotch britted it off runs like new, I've seen saws with way more rust run fine, but that particular ignition would not.hi chipper - if you tinker with it and get it running, let us know why it wouldn't. all the readings I have done on rusty mags says does not hinder spark, unless build up prevents flywheel for rotating ~
