    My neighbor has this old walk behind plow she wanted re-motored. She uses it to loosen up the horse arena sand when it get's packed down. It had a really old Brigg's & Stratton on it....but with the price of small engines in the $200 range, replacing the motor was the best option. The first...

    Culvert is placed and covered with 3/4 minus. Now, wait for septic system survey next week, and then we're putting in the retaining wall along the face of the slope and finishing up the street parking with more fill and leveling.

    Here's today's progress (day 1) There's a picture of the slope looking up at the home. The area of grass & plants is home to a septic drain field, with the tank up in the left side towards the back of the home. I thought the owner had said the drain field was in the planted garden area closer...

    KUBOTA SAFETY SWITCHES

    The dealership pages have on-line parts ordering look-up which include diagrams. I also use Messicks on-line part ordering diagrams. Electrical "rule of thumb" for me: Check Battery voltage Check the ground Check the fuses If I suspected a faulty switch as you mention, I might build a jumper...

    Well.....my turn! I've had the frustrating pedal wiggle to get the tractor to start for a while now....until this afternoon. My B2650 just died....no warning or nuthin.

    Install of water temp gauge - L245DT

    I ended up using the drain plug outlet. The "in-line" choice was too big to fit with the short hose lengths, and I also didn't want to be back fixing any leaks later on (the tractors get used by various employees and their "love" for them isn't always sincere!) :-)
