snow blower conversion

Recommended Posts

I have a shot at getting a late sixties a-c snow blower. My tractor is a '65 Big Ten which I think uses the 3 belt blower. Has anyone modified a later blower to fit an earlier tractor? What major problems am I apt to run into? Bending metal and welding are no problem. Will the 10 horse motor give enough power or will the snow land on the front tire? Any comments would be appreciated

I'd go for the single-belt blower over the 3-belt blower, any day. With the 3-belt, you have to get off the tractor, walk to the front, and engage the impeller. With the single-belt, you simply sit in the seat and push/pull a rod to engage it. Any yellow 36" single-belt blower for the larger tractors (i.e. not a B-206/207/208) will mount right on it, and you're in business. I use this single-belt blower from my B-210 on my Big Ten all the time... http://simpletractors.com/operation/snow_thrower/single_belt.htm A 10HP is plenty. You may need to either put a speed reduction pulley on it, to slow it down for really BIG snows like this, though... I was using Low/Low or 2nd/Low on my high-low...

      folowing  this from a link at the downloads.  I just rescued an AC 920 with the lambodini diesel. I can' t download  yet .  Where did you find the PDF copy you posted. . I would like to figure out how to adjust the injection pump. 
      I assume it's a bosche, correct

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
