    Checking in with a new group

    Hi all. Belong to a few other GT sites and liked the looks and feel of this one. I have several Bolens GT's but also have a couple CC in with them. My main mower is CC1512. Mrs. uses a 1018. Have a 1650 without a motor sitting for a motor install.

            Chieffan, did you get that GR starter on the 1512 yet?

              Yes I did and it turns over a W H O L E lot better. Fires off quicker too. Should have done that last year. Think I can stay with the 450cca battery now. When I think I may need it with the thrower on will plug in the trickle charger and 2 magnetic heaters, one on the rear end and the other on the oil pan.

              Does your 1512 still have the disconnect clutch?

                  Then you don't need a heater on the rear end. Unless you live in a climate that gets below like -20 regularly.

                  I would put a block heater in the coolant on the engine. That warms the cylinders and helps it start. Warming the oil just warms the oil. Does heat up the cylinders much.

                      Been busy on this end and haven't been on for a while. We got nailed with 10" + snow last Saturday. Sunday was dig out day. Got that diesel fired up OK. Let it warm up some before I put it to work with the thrower. Done a real good job as long as I didn't try to push through it to fast. Was wet and heavy so made that diesel work a little, more than a 50" deck ever did.

                          Nothing loads a motor like a snowblower. No matter what tractor it's on. We had an 8' 3pt snowblower on the farm (still do) and it would kill a 100hp tractor! Snowblowers take a lot of power!

                          Will try and get some pics today. Got another 6" yesterday. Been looking for a coolant heater for the bottom radiator hose but not finding anything that small that will work. Any suggestions?

                          I messed up and left the key on last time so have to charge the battery up for a couple hours first. Probably right after dinner it will go. Have ice under the snow that could be fun going.
