My 4 way Snow blade still held position, and did not swivel, without the lock out valve. I installed one, because of the lag in response, for the swivel. Obtained mine from Grainger. Rated up to 1000 psi. $12.
On another note, I recently moved all of the videos on my YouTube channel over to a new channel that is specific to only tractor/outdoor power equipment videos. I've fixed all of the links in this thread too. Check it out if you get a chance.
Came across a pretty good deal on an MC519 cart with a power flow head for the 318 yesterday. Everything is in really nice shape. The only issue is that I'm missing a few parts. I was missing the bracket that's needed to mount the cart to the tractor. I was able to source that with one I found on eBay.
The other parts I'm missing are the double stack pulley for on the deck and the power flow mounting brackets. Anybody know the part numbers for these for a 50" deck and/or a good source to pick them up?
I think the part number for the pulley is M90692, can anyone confirm? I haven't been able to find one however.
The brackets I am having trouble finding the part numbers for.
I was impatient, so I ended up fitting up the power flow today. I'll end up doing another video on that at some point too, I just had some free time to drill the holes for the mounting brackets, so I went ahead and did that. I still need to cut the belt cover for the double pulley though.
I'm not sure if it's safe to just yet, but I took the front blade off and put the rear blade on because I have some dirt to move and grade this week. Still need to swap out the rear tires. Hoping I don't need the snow plow anymore this season. Fingers crossed.
Been a while since I've updated this thread. Once maintenance is caught up and tractors aren't breaking it makes it hard to come up with video content. The 318 has been getting used for grunt work type things such as hauling, grading, etc...while the 316 has been the mower. I put the wheel weights back on it yesterday and will likely be taking it to camp next week to use the roller on the yard.
