    1662 becomes a 2362 snowblower with cab

    I''ll add some text soon. I know everyone loves pics. 🍻

    Okay here's the deal. The super just doesn't get used that much. Even when it does, it doesn't get worked that hard, definitely not enough to justify having a 23hp engine in it. I've had enough of swapping the cab and blower twice a year. It's a PITA! I figure the 23 hp should blow some snow pretty good.

    So, I started by yanking the CH16 out. Took about 10 minutes.

    Then took the 2372 for one last ride.

    Pulled the Vanguard out. the worst part was the spiral pin.

    The rust bucket waiting for it's upgrade.

    I dropped it in and pushed it forward under cover to keep it out of the rain that was coming, again...

    Pulled the 451 out of the back of the barn to make room for the supers hibernation spot.

    Pushed it most of the way to the barn like this.

    One stop along the way. Probably the only single cylinder Super. I haven't decided if it's going to stay or not...

    Ok.... so, gotta ask. Why did the SGT give up it's motor for the GT? Looks like it is a good tractor....?

    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 started a thread at the other place explaining this. The GT is going to be my permanent snowblower machine. The Super really wasn't using the big motor so I figured I'd make use of it, if we get snow. IlI' edit the first post with details but I'm getting really tired about now and I wanted to make sure that the pics got there. More to come...

        Thanks for posting Travis. Why not make the 2372 into your snow machine? To much machine?
        Hey, I know you're tired, but come on man. Get back to us after you get some sleep.
        They can't all be turn key.
        Make the best of each and every day.

          Howdy Todd! I have a cab for the cyclops. I guess it could be modified, but the Super needs rewired and the 3 spool valve installed. Its my favorite too, so I don't want to abuse it with snow or grass.

            Today I freed up the rockshaft, cleaned the CV joints, installed the driveshaft, and took the old tires off. The rims will get blasted and powder coated tomorrow. Next will be the wiring. Happy New Year!

                Well the sand hose inside the cabinet had disintegrated and I couldn't find a replacement here. Looks like a wire wheel, rolocs, 1 step, and tubes for these wheels and tires. Ordered the tubes from TSC for $7 a piece. Hopefully ship to store doesn't take too long.

                  I blasted the inside of the wheels yesterday and got them primed and painted. Put a coat on the outside this afternoon. Their not perfect but should keep them from rusting through anytime soon. The tubes will be in tomorrow, then I can get it out of the garage and clean it up some more.

                  New fuel line and bushings put in this morning. Got the fenders and seat bracket mounted. I will finish up the wiring this evening and should be ready to get the snowblower and cab on this week. Oh, Rumblefish is going to send me some better footrests. Thanks Jeff!

                    Looking good! Are you filling the rear tubes for ballast?

                      No tubes in the rear. I am putting the rear wheels and tires that came on my 1864. They are filled with WWF and have 2 link chains on them already.

                        60, that's perfect weather for getting it running. Good luck Travis, you'll get it before long.
