    Tiny toolbox for tiny tractor

    Now I see, armylifer. The other picture looked as though it was mounted vertically against the actual tractor frame. I'll look at the tractor more closely at that spot today. Thanks for taking time for the pictures and the info! TG

    Tiny toolbox for tiny tractor

    Yes, armylifer, I'd like to see a closer picture. I don't think there is that much room at the side of my BX23 but I'd like to see what you did. After I see what are the dimensions of the proposed box, I might get some ideas. Thanks for offering.

    HST drain plug dripping

    Yes, this makes perfect sense, NCL4701. With that in mind, I'm going to try the Loctite 518 that was suggested. Thanks for taking time to respond. TG

    I want that tool box carrier, wingnut! Really nice. Got any extra parts? :-) A fishing tackle box would fit great. Tractor Gal

    The PRICE of super UDT2 - are you kidding?

    Another viewpoint. We all know that in order to stay in business, there must be a profit. While I would not relish paying large sums for repairs if I can do it myself, I am not quite as hard nosed when it comes to parts. I have purchased some parts online from Messick's. They have good...

    HST drain plug dripping

    Interesting product, for sure. I'll have to mull on this one. NAPA doesn't have it available online and the local NAPA is already closed for today. Thanks for the info. TG

    carbide coated mower blade search

    I hear ya', Adf. When I get new blades, I'll come back to this thread to check things out again. For now, I've just sharpened what is there and will see how it goes. I don't have to do a lot of mowing with this mower so all should be good for now. Thanks for your good report. TG

    carbide coated mower blade search

    I hear what you're saying, CGMKCM, but it's not the "lock washers" we all know and love. It is called a lock washer...notice in the diagram you sent. #7 is called a lock washer. It is the stop sign kind of lock washer. It fits directly onto the bottom of the shaft and is the same shape. No...

    HST drain plug dripping

    The leak is definitely the HST plug. I am not blonde but I do know where the HST plug is located. :-) Teflon tape is not recommended for this application, as I view it. Teflon tape has its place but getting into the HST system would not be good. And, the sealant is also a big question in...

    carbide coated mower blade search

    Yesterday at the Kubota dealer, I learned that the cup washers have been designed to keep the blade spinning properly. The bottom one pushes up and causes the top washer to flatten a bit but the bottom one does not flatten very much, holding tension on the blade. Two are required on each blade...

    HST drain plug dripping

    Now wouldn't that be awful...get the bolt in and not leaking but impossible to remove! Wish I could see a cut away view of the HST oil pan. It must be pretty thick based on its location and lack of protection. If the helicoil extends above the bottom level of the pan itself, the HST oil...

    HST drain plug dripping

    That's what I'm afraid of, Hagrid. I can do some things but generally I need to spend time mulling over the problem and then spending time mulling over the solutions! TG

    I will have to check to see what NAPA has and how..or if...it will address this particular problem.

    HST drain plug dripping

    When I got this used tractor, the HST was slowly dripping. I have tried to address the drip to stop it but have only made a little progress. The threads in the transmission case are in bad shape. I've searched on this forum to read solutions that different people have tried. I've...

    Thanks, mikester. You must be doing a lot of mowing to get new blades every year! I'll just have to monitor and see what develops over the season. Thanks again. TG

    Good info, lugbolt. I'm learning more and more every day about this whole BX thing! It's a great little machine...as are many brands. Maintenance is the key, as well as not abusing while using. :-) Thanks for the tip. TG

    RCK60B-22BX

    Update on RCK60B-22BX. Situation: Had the calamity described in the thread, oil was leaking out so I needed to take the gearbox off to see if it was damaged or see if the seal above the pulley needed replacing. Thankfully, the gearbox was not damaged. Whitetiger gave excellent instructions...

    carbide coated mower blade search

    Good to know, CGMKCM. I guess in the big picture, it's "how you mow." Or, maybe included in that is "what you mow." :-) I've sharpened the blades that came with the mower so we'll see how they do. No point to buy new until I see how things go. But, I do appreciate the comments from those...
