Speediet, in your second picture there's a spring to the right of the front tire. What is it for? Can you get a picture of it?
Thanks, I was think of taking the bar of a horse drawn mower and hanging it underneath a GT.Probably 2-300 pounds. It's heavy!
It looks like your knives are still dull, and that you have quite the gap between the knives and the shear fingers. It's my understanding that the sickle bar acts like 25 scissors, so the knives need to be close to the shear fingers to work properly. These are just my thoughts.I sharpened the knives...
I'm not sure. It has 140 PSI in the cylinder which is very surprising for how much it smokes. Probably the valve guides.Neat pics C&S. Your engine appears to be smoking in the distant pic. Does it have a dropped valve in it or does it need rings?
My guess is it has dropped a valve.
I've heard of serrated knives for these and i'm sure they cut better but this does good enough.If they needed to be replaced i'd find serrated.The knifes on that sickle look like they are made for straw. We had knifes like that on our swather and it wouldn't cut grass very well. The 8' sickle mower we used grass had serrated knives and cut way better.
