couple of simple tricks, got any?

Recommended Posts


First, I have one b12 where the gearbox sticker (1,2,3,R) is worn off. While I just could go the easy way and write the numbers on the panel or get a new sticker I have an easy memory trick to remember where reverse is (keeps you from running into the wall when parking)

Just remember

Rear, Right=Reverse

(for any boaters it may seem close to the Red, Right, Return for remembering which side to keep the red can on when in channel)

Reverse here


second easy trick, I like to keep my belt with the pulley when removing attachments. One pulley= one belt, so that is easy but for example, the rear pto has 2 belts, as things stretch and wear you have to take an extra second to measure and fit and at times use the wrong belt. 2 zip ties make it easy to keep the belt with the correct pulley for storage


Got more but I cant think of any atm

For storing a belt WITH the proper pulley, I slide the cardboard that came on the belt down to secure the pulley. That way, everything is labeled. It's also easy to hang from a nail.

      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!😁
