Broke my PTO shaft.
Will have to cut out shaft and weld in anew one made from a bolt.

Greetings!

Shes' commin' out pretty good!

How or what; material are you using to fix the plastic in the dash and how did you determine what kind of repair plastic was compatible?

Also- you're doing an awful lot of work to that mower - who's cutting the grass while you're busy rebuilding this one?

 ;D

Regards!

Thanks. It is a lot of work.....
The dash plastic is ABS.  Just like some pipe material that can be purchased at Lowes.

To make filler for it:
Small chopped up pieces of ABS pipe.
1 oz ABS cement
Bottle of Acetone.

Place everything  in glass jar. Cover ABS with Acetone. Stir
Let sit overnight.
The next day you will end up with a slurry. Stir it up and see if it is too thick or too running. Add material as needed.


As far as the grass, that would be me. Need to cut it twice a week but only getting it one time a week at the moment. :(

This tractor will probably never mow grass. Will see more of moving earth with a front end loader and box blade.
