    Yep - hydro Allis Chalmers. When the end of the world comes, the cockroaches will be riding these things. I also have a B10 at the cabin(1964), but that has a cast Briggs, so I guess it doesn't count.:cool:

    You got that right. My head should be done and I have 24hrs before the head gasket gets here. What should I do with my polishing equipment?

    Fugetaboutit. Other than just cleaning things up all nice, nice - slap that sucker back together and beat it like a rented mule.

    LOL it is amazing a 301 12 hp will spank the crap out of a modern 22hp.

    Two different critters, Jay. The 12HP in that old iron was treated as a tractor, tractor speeds, tractor gearing, etc. The newer stuff is designed different. Fast mower deck speeds for extra lift and mulching. The zero turns have fantastic ground speeds and stuff like that.

    Do you realize that your 12HP really only has 9.4 brake HP? Yep - even then they played with the "advertising". It only got worse.>>

    I still say you have the wrong seat on that tricycle, Jags. Should look something like this:

    Wow, really? That K301 does have some power. I have two Deere's with 25 hp (757 ZTrak (gas) and 855 (diesel)). I wonder what they really pull on the dyno.

    Dunno - I find it interesting that you can go to the farm store - or wherever - and buy a 36" law mower with a 20HP engine. It doesn't really make a whole lotta sense to me....unless that 20hp isn't really what it appears to be.

    The K series was just a brute with a bunch of torque.

    Got any local mower shops with bone yard out back? You could probably pick up a good seat from one of those on the cheap.

    I have a buddy that is the head of the parts department for industrial equipment. The seat on the Allis and the Case were both "dead" inventory that they wanted to purge. The big one on the tractor was over $800 new.:eek:

    Yeah...not going to find one of those, but you might find something better than you have.

    The guy I used to mow for had a Michigan suspension seat on the diesel dixie chopper and it was nice. One of our contracts had a large area (about 6-7 acres) of ground squirrel infested former cornfield planted in grass. Nobody could take it for more than an hour at full speed without feeling like they should be pi$$ing blood at the end of the day. That seat fixed that, but it was big money. It paid for itself pretty quick because we could mow it that much faster.

    My Dad was a cabinet maker/ Funny story he always said going through door ways. We can replace your knuckles cheaper than the cabinet. Guess that means stock seat for me. :eek:

    That lawn is begging to be mowed with a zero turn. Man, I could open up my mower on a stretch like that:

    I have been sniffing at zero turns, but there is no way you would be able to run anywhere near top speed on my lawn. It simply isn't smooth enough.

    ZTR is some of the best money I have ever spent. My yard is not smooth and I can run close to top speed (8 MPH). I mow my three acres in just shy of an hour. They're expensive because they're worth it.

    Mine's pretty un-smooth as well. My rear lawn is somewhat wooded, and is a lower area requiring lots of buried drain pipe to keep it drained and dry. Every year, it seems a few more trees die blow down, leaving me to grind out the stumps (6 in two years!). Those drain line runs settle and sink a bit more each year, along with the back-filled stump holes, leaving the lawn pretty darn bumpy when flying around at 11 mph.

    I have been running around with a front-end loader full of dirt, twice each year, filling in low spots and/or holes as I find them. I tell myself it's getting better each year, although animals make new holes and the frost does its thing each year, so I'm probably just keeping up. Old bumpy spots get flat, old flat spots get bumpy. After the 2nd or 3rd mowing each year, I know where I can go full speed, and where I need to pull back.

    Ok who can drink a beer and mow at the same time? (Jags you cant do that on a 0 turn) I can! ;) 6 way aeration spring and fall. This year with the cub I will be pulling double aerators.
