    1450 snow fighter

    filedata/fetch?id=4829&d=1547515230&type=thumb After over 15 years, and my growing dislike for freezing my ass off, coupled with a forecasted snow accumulation of nearly two feet projected, I am pulling my QA 36 snowthrower out of retirement, dusting off my 1450, and taking my IH windbreaker cab out of the shadows.

    Over the years I have acquired needed parts for the thrower, with tonight marking the starting point for the great reunion!

    I'm fairly excited to put this all together now that my 1450 has power steering... that coupled with everything else, the suspense is climbing.

    Figured I would post a picture of the thrower with my Cyclops conversion kit installed. It will be removed to place the thrower back to oem.

    Anyone interested in my kit? Converts a qa thrower for use on a cyclops with the super steer front axle.

      I guess I don't see what the adapter part is? What's different?

      Get it mounted up and show us!

      Just because it's old, doesn't mean it's obsolete!

      I've got a lot of Cubs in the barn....but I have more implements/attachments!

        I had to make a new sub frame, longer parallel lift bars, shem out the gear box 1.5", build a new lift rod and put on a different pulley. It actually worked rather well!

        I'll get pix

      Nice project, better get the right drive belt headed your way, it will probably be different from what you had on the Cyclops.

      filedata/fetch?id=4906&d=1547598918&type=thumb After being in the shed for almost two years, one flat tire, no gas and a slightly dead battery, I'm using one international (7.3) to jump another! Hope she kicks. Probably have to pull carb and clean. Wish me luck!

      UPDATE: It started!! Drove it to the shop. Let the work commence!

        20190115_185549.jpg Snapped a pic of my mod for the 1864. Be gentle, I did this when I was like 15.

        another note... I almost have all my pieces found for the snow blower. Cant find my lift rod... probably have to build 1

          Hang on. Are you saying you built all of that? Or just shimmed out the gearbox. The gearbox shims are the only thing that doesn't look factory to me. Well, the pulley too.

            The frame that pins the quicktach to the blower, I built. The OEM one is laying adjacent to on the floor as a side by side comparison. I also built longer parallel arms for the top part but don have those in the picture

          Looks pretty dam good for a 15 year old's work. I'd be proud of that and I'm over 60!

            That's what I was thinking!!! I couldn't figure out what wasn't factory!

                  Lol, well thanks guys, I like to think my abilities have improved but I'm sure in reality they have regressed with my eye sight.

                  ran into a snafu, the larger drive pulley hub was stuck badly to the gear box shaft. Had to get local welder to remove for me. Wow!

                  now they aren't talking shit for snow...ass hoes

                    Yeah I saw him over on GT talk, complaining that he supposedly got canned from OCC. I haven't told him to check us out here.

                    You got it ready to battle a disaster... That you now say has been averted. Sounds like a great insurance policy to me

                      Well... that's just It. With all the FD stuff the last few nights I haven't got any time to work on it. So it's not ready lol, but alot closer! Realistically I could have it blowing snow in 4 hours with all the stuff I have yet to do.
