Ready for snow

Got the plow on and hoping for snow this year. Have the relief valve adjusted properly on the actuating valve this time so I don't spring a leak. Amazing how much easier the blade goes on when you install the seperate parts and not trying to do it all at once.

I'm sorry, am I drooling? one mention, I might look for some of that heavy spiral wrap and wrap both the hoses to the angle cylinder and make a bracket to hold them up, scares me seeing them hanging down like that. My grandfather always said I could tear up an iron wedge, me I would have those ripped off in no time :P

Yep, those hoses wouldn't last long here either. But, other than that, it's one very good looking Cub! But I'd probably just use tie wraps. Mrs Willy says I'm the "King of Tie Wraps" as I tend to use them like some people do duct tape.

Nah, it's not leaking oil. It's just marking it's territory.

Nice job, Shawn! That Cub looks great. I hope you get some plowable snow. Getting 3-5" here today. Will probably be out after the kids are done opening their presents in the morning.

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I went ahead and zip tied the lines together and then pushed the lines up higher under the hood, and made a zip tie latch to anchor them on the lower protruding bolts. This setup was a copy from a older post on here.

It is looking promising that we are going to get some snow not as much as I'd like but hopefully.... (fingers crossed)

Thought I posted the pics after I was doing restoring it this fall but guess I just posted on facebook.

Now add ice link tire chains and dual rear wheel weights, three rib tires on the front with two sets of wheel weights so it will steer. That’s the max setup to push snow.

I’m sorry but I speak the truth. I get heavy wet snow that’s deep. It takes a tractor that’s setup correctly. My old Willy’s has two locking diffs with chains on four tires. She’s weighted.
I know the fcub isn’t the same power wise but the fcub or number cub is more fun plowing.
The jeep is a animal.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

Looks good to me! If I had to complain about anything other than the hoses you already fixed, it's that you gave me more work to do with the ideas for hydraulics that I'm going to have to steal!

I'm wondering what's up with the square tube on the end of the rear lift? Boom pole base?

Will get some pics here as soon as I get around to going out into the barn. The square tube, I'm not sure was like that when I got it a previous owner put it on there for some reason.
