The engine on my 1050 was using a lot of oil, and I had to pull the engine mount bolts to put the hydraulic pump supports on anyway...

So, I decided to put the engine from the 1053 I parted out on the 1050. That engine seemed to run good once I fixed the fuel supply issues.

Started Monday, and got the original one removed. I also cleaned up a bunch of rust on the battery tray.

I was finally able to get back to it today. It's ready to run, just need to hook up the hydraulic hoses and fill the pump with oil. I hope the system works ok.

Nice 1050, you'll like the hydraulic lift when you need to lift something heavy.

Got her up and running and pumping tonight.

I then hooked on to the snow caster and brought it inside so I can get it ready to go. Just need to check the oil in the gearbox, and bolt the discharge chute back on, and hook it up again.

It was awesome to just turn the handle on the hydraulics to lift it up to bring it inside!

Yep, I sure wouldn't have it working without your help. Those pump supports fit perfectly.

Thanks again.

Today I got the snow caster hooked up and ready to go. Just in time too, already got about 4 inches of snow.

Then I started working on the other 1050. The engine is packed full of mouse/chipmunk nests.

Here is what it looked like once I got the front cover off.

I know it needs an ignition switch and the carb cleaned. I'm going to pull the head off too, since I'm almost there anyway. It also needs drive and PTO belts. I plan on putting the front blade on it once I get it going. Hopefully it won't need anything else.

Today I cleaned out the driveway with the 1050. We got 5-6 inches yesterday.

It did good, well after I put the chains on anyway. I figured I would try it without chains to see how it did, but soon realized I wouldn't be going anywhere without them.

The governor spring broke about halfway through the job, but I had a couple more on the other engines. One of the broke too, while I was putting it on, but the third was the charm.

Looks like a fun time.
Were you slipping alot without the weights?
No, it did good. I was impressed. About the only time it would spin was in reverse in high range if I let the clutch out too fast.

There is quite a bit of beef on the seat though!

Beef on the seat certainly helps with traction in the snow!! :D 275 lbs here :D
