I opened up the switch and did tinker with it to get it working better but a project I’ve wanted to do for awhile popped back into my head. Upgrade the headlights.
I dug out the original single LED I purchased down at Kyle #2’s place and quickly ran down for a second before they closed.
After stairing at it and not wanting to drill thru the body panels nor wanting the lights hanging outside I made a bracket out of some 1/4 inch aluminum I had and made them a mount that worked great and kept them hidden behind the grill. The LED lights should really help when out in the snow . Think l’ll either get green LED 1156 bulbs for the original headlights or install yellow ones in there and try to make them flash like a township truck. Time will tell

Tire Wheel Tractor Vehicle Motor vehicle Automotive tire Wheel Hood Motor vehicle Bumper Wheel Tire Vehicle Automotive tire Motor vehicle Tire Wheel Automotive tire Tread Motor vehicle Wheel Tire Riding mower Lawn mower Automotive tire Since now the 210 can see its way around it was time to mount the snow blower that I purchased cheap a little over a year ago and modified the chute on and changed the drive gear from a 48 to a 38 tooth. Started this project last night and finished today. I needed the drive pulley/shive that bolted to the PTO and luckily my favorite man store had it in stock. Thanks guys.
I also drilled a new hole were the linkage attaches to the blower so it can lift a little higher. Forgot that they did not lift very high.
First time I turned it on I was amazed at how fast the auger turns now. Excited to try it but really would be fine if it doesn’t ever snow again

Pikeville Equipment , good coffee, great people and always there for advice on repairs and a laugh or two. It is Kyle 2’s family who own and run it. Just a quick trip down the road for me. Don’t think I’d enjoy the hobby as much as I do without them.
