My 185 Progress

Postby Puffergas » Sun Oct 27, 2019 10:23 am

Welded the transaxle shifter.

Replaced one shift fork. Next time I'll try removing transaxle clutch to slide shift rod forward. I slid it rearward and had a heck of a time doing that plus damaged the rod somewhat.

Someone had a muffler pointing up like the Farmall Cubs and the muffler was gone with the wind or should I say rust. Of course one of the elbows were pointing in the wrong direction and unusable because of rusted pipe. I used the elbow removal method, found on this forum, and to my amazement it worked. A new muffler was out of my budget at this time so I used what I had.

You can get the complete muffler assembly from Hamilton bobs cubs

It’s a great tractor to mow with, very comfortable. But sometimes a pain to work on.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.

I purchased so many int154 parts from hamiltonbobscubs I probably have a complete 154 on shelves minus the frame. It’s nice to need a part and have it instock.

I was thinking when I add the geared starter in my loader a fcub oil bath aircleaner with a precleaner will be added so the alternator and hydraulic pump can be added. Outside exhaust and aircleaner.

I will replace it in time but right now I use what I got. The other problem was That I would have had to remove the fuel tank or the manifold in order to remove the other elbow. In due time.

Just change out the whole manifold with the muffler.

These parts are getting harder to get.

I am planning a new manifold, carburetor and muffler. But I need to get this one running to take the place of a 154 that needs more work. Juggling show.

I see and that exhaust should be okay for lower rpms.
