Got My Sign Today

Recommended Posts

Roy
Did some work on the mower deck and put it on the Sovereign today. Then took a test spin to make sure all was well. Didn't blow out the discharge or cut leaves/grass. Stopped and checked. Sure enough, I had the belt routed backwards. So I got my "stupid" sign. :I:I All is OK now.

Been there, done that. Blades on rightside up? You get a bigger sign for that!
After spending about a month re painting and rebuilding a 64 Broadmoor, I get it all back together, go to try it, put it in 3rd, and what? I'm going backwards??????? Darn belt on backwards:(!:(! Elon

Roy, I put the belt on backward, mowed my whole front lawn, then looked at it and said, "man I need to sharpen those blades". Mine has been put on backward several times. :I:I:I

Now there's an idea!

Hey Ray Funny you mentoin that,When I got my B-112 ,(The tractor that started this whole thing)I put the deck on it and took it for a spin, I thought' Man this thing dosen't cut for very good at all!! After checking it out ,Yup the belt was on backwards, And the original decal was still there, I guess this happens a lot,But not usually in the winter

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
