Got the 4040 dialed in, 'i hope' new tranny fluid and filter, points,plugs and timed. Working starter, chains and blade. Couple questions I developed in the process of workin on the ole girl. It takes 8 sec to raise the blade 9 1/2 inches, is that slow or about rt.? Engine spped is 3350rpm. Should it be able to lift the front of the tractor off the ground??I have a new cyl on it and it does not bleed down over night. Is it normal to have to remove the rt fender to get the hydro filter off?? seemed a little strange. And who wants to kick me for forgetting to put the heat pad on the engine while I had it out..Tanks..MPH

As I read though posts a couple more questions came to mind, guess I need to take notes when I think about stuff. What front tires do those of you lucky enough to have loaders run?? Mine are ready to blow about any moument. What other attachments use the sub-frame for the blade? Looks to be three other mounting staps with hole in varies configurations. After I get the 725 engine rebuild I hope to have enough winter left to mount a Johnny bucket type scoop on that subframe. Is it strong enough??Thanks again..MPH

Marty Simplicity offered a high capacity 6x9 front tire. I believe that was for tractors using front loaders. I am using the agricultural tires with my loader, so far, they are holding up to the task. The blade sub-frame appears to be the same frame that was also used for the 52" snowthrower. I would have to guess that my blade on the 9020 raises in less than 4 seconds. I'm glad to see that you have that gal running once again.

Thanks for the tire info Ben. Inspite the fact it dropped to 25 below over nite I had to go play today. On 3 acers I knew I could find some snow the 112 missed, I did, man 3rd gear, full hydro is like mach 4 compared to the B-112. The lift got slower the longer I was out, little over an hour. snow was old crusty stuff thats been rained on and snowed on top of. Not really fun stuff to play in. As to being a beauty, thanks guys, but sometimes its nice to have a cheap camera, the orange paint needs a fair bit of TLC..MPH
