    Grading--what am I doing to cause this?

    Maybe already said but weight and speed have a lot to do with the ripples. weight because the 3pt has no down pressure and just bounces with every rock and bump. angle will help with the grader blading and some of the ripple effect. The speed effects box blading a lot. But the box blade could...

    You missed part of why I wanted to find the correct bolt, and I have future plans to attach to those bolts, which I did not exactly specify in the post. My challenge and the first thing I had to do was make sure I had the correct bolts for the holes. Those holes are blond holes in the front of...

    Hey that is great information..I went by my local Kubota dealer today and told the part's guy what I was looking for. As usual He get's on the computer and starts searching the diagrams, I told him he would not find them by diagram. After about 3-5 min looking at his computer screen and asking...

    Hey I would if I had one, I'm by no means a mechanic (that should be obvious by now lol ) and the tap and die set is what I have and it's missing some, or, maybe a lot of what used to have in the set. My guess is that if it had a pitch gauge it got pitched somewhere at one time or another over...

    I most likely have to agree with you on this point, mm that is, it just dosent seem right that the 16mm is so disagreeable. however i think we will know for sure in the coming week as i hope to have more time to get it cleaned inspected and a fresh bolt or 2. I am not even beyond going to a...

    Bolt Update....here we go i have had time to fiddle with it some in between trying to do another million things. 1st off my tap and die set only goes to 1/2 inch bummer, that's just too small. Second 14 mm is just too small and 16mm is too big to start or even go in the hole. Third, and the...

    Update, Sort of? I was able to get some bolts and get to the tractor today. 14mm is too small and goes in the hole without even touching, However 5/8 bolt seems to be about the right size and will try to start a thread but i did not force it for fear of cross threading. So here is my plan, I am...

    Bolt Size Help

    Yes, the depth of the casting I am definitely already aware of watching as I do NOT want to crack anything That's also an important reason I want the right size bolt because it is tapped cast metal and I do not want to be trying to cross thread anything in it and risk expanding/cracking metal...
