I have several (10) stock, unmolested briggs 28ci flatheads available

$40 + shipping.. (I accept cash/paypal)

The more you buy the cheaper they get..

Let me know they will go to scrap at the end of the year..


Get with the guys from River bottom speedway. 

They are doing a 2 day race Labor Day weekend.  Possibly set up a deal to race each other's race. 

I won't be able to attend yours because of harvest.  But the other guys will be looking for races!!

I will hit them up thanks !!

The Minnesota Lawn Mower Racing Association is looking into hosting a 2 day event in central and southwest Minnesota on the first (or second) weekend in October.
The class structure will be based on the USLMRA rule book but all racers that pass a basic safety tech will be placed somewhere..

One Evening (Saturday) race and one Noon (Sunday) race.

Primitive accommodations (porta-potty) available for those wishing to camp overnight in the pits.

The events will be held at established go kart tracks, meaning that along with the facility advantages of racing at a kart track there will be insurance and entry fee's for both days.
These will be announced when we determine if there is enough interest to pursue this event.

Currently there are 20+ local racers committed to this event. Let me know if you would like to join us !!!

Coffee Shop / grass cutter/snowblower question...
« on: December 10, 2013, 11:19:22 pm »
I was on a few weeks back looking for a model # for an MTD with a vari-drive. I didn't have but a picture of the one I have and I needed a model Number so I could get drive belts.

Someone here was nice enough to take a look and identified it for me and I was able to get belts. I mowed all summer and it worked great.

But now I have attached a 2 stage snow blower to it and well it's not working so great...

My problem is when I run in to a load, say like when I am about 1/2 way down the drive way with about 4 inches of snow on it, the mower just slows to a stop. If I remove the load and play around with the F-N-R knob and move it between speeds eventually it starts moving again.

Sometimes it does it even without a load. I was just trying to get up the slight incline of my driveway and it stopped on me.

I am assuming that even though I got a model number and assumed it was correct it might have been off a bit and I have the wrong belt or belts?

I am assuming that one or both are too long from the way it's acting?

Any help would be greatly appreciated...

Lee no one is racing on a regular basis, but we would like too.  Maybe we could lure some of you guys out here too.   
The promoter at Redwood Speedway may be interestd in starting something on a limited basis.   

Ya know... even if a guy did a once a year type, stand alone type event say this time of year or even into Oct.
Make it a dbl header then:
- We are outside our typical race season so points are not an issue
- It's easier to justify the 2+ hr travel to make the event

Just food for thought...Redwood Oc-mow-berfest anyone?

Sounds like it is junk to me Lee.  

Cut it up and race it!!!!!

Ha not this little "gem"....George and Bud you guys hit the nail right on the head. My situation is exactly that the off the shelf belts will get you close but not EXACTLY what MTD specs are... I ended up getting the correct MTD belts to make it work properly and all is good...

We all have our issues with what happens on Heymow from time to time but it is home to some of the most helpful and insigful folks on the web.

Thanks for your time guys ...

Yup I even took it out and cleaned up the surfaces (rust) but the middle portion slides up and down round and round with ease...

I will spare you all of the gorey details, in a nutshell..

Little Cub Cadet 1027 (MTD Yard Bug)
I replaced the 2 drive belts and now the silly thing wants to creep fwd/reverse when in gear.
Parts tree says the belts (2) are a MTD 754-0453, 954-0453 which is 5/8 x 36 so, that's what I got and put on..

It's a vari-drive system and the belts seem to be tight all the time even when in neutral

i can't leave it like this the brakes will not hold it when in gear and it won't come out of gear like this.

Thoughts? Suggestions?

There is only one way to make money racing..........start with a lot of money.  You may have a little when you are done. 

The only way to make a small fortune in racing start with a large one...
