    No time to install yet but happy to say the blower is finally back together except for the gear and chain. Now about that “other” tractor.......

    10 tooth different should make a difference!

    Yes the ten tooth difference should speed it up nicely.
    I don’t own any yet Don they are both within reach though. I really don’t want to spend time fixing one I’d like it turn key.
    Afraid the 200 may need to find a new home which was not the original plan. Time will tell.

    Even though you don't spell it correctly I still know what you are talking about.

    I can't find the engine drive pulley installation instructions in the service manual.
    Could anyone tell me which way the pulley goes on, and do you just drive it on till it gets tight on the key? About how far from the block should it be?
    Thanks for any help!

    Cannot help with the hub replacement but I think you just
    Line it up so the belt tracks straight.

    the headlight bulbs on the 210.
    Not sure what I was expecting but don’t think they are as bright as I hoped for.
    They were $7 for 10 ea shipped. Thought they were worth trying but may still try others or add another light .

    Been wanting to paint the hood on the 210 for some time. So today I removed it and found it to be a little worse than I thought. The crack that I thought was only on the side of the hood was worse in the middle thru the headlight bucket. Ground out some of the fiberglass on the hood and used cloth and resin in behind the broken areas and a small bit of tiger hair. Rebuilt the front corner that was missing also with tiger hair and bondo. It’s buy no means perfect and will be a quick turn around. Had it been a restoration I would have spent a bit more time on it. We’ll see what it looks like in the morning after wet sanding if it gets painted green or not. Excited to finally get to try the Tallmans paint so highly recommended by the Elfman himself.
    I had also called Pikeville Equip about new hood decals for it . I am hopeful we can find original yellow decals and not have to use the Tiger Stripes on it . I do have another idea if we have to go Tiger Stripe to maybe invert the colors on the stripe and have decals cut in yellow since it’s not really original anyway.

    I believe HAPCO used to have the 210 decals.
