Re: Cab Door 11/20/2014 10:33:34 AM   (Total replies: 0)

The hinges I used were a Spaenaur part number 098-184BK.  They are 4“ wide hinges.

The closest McMaster-Carr part number would be 15195A25.

Cab Door 11/24/2012 10:42:54 AM   (Total replies: 1)

I finally collected all of the parts that I needed to build my door.  The final piece was the threshold plate for the bottom of the door.  I was going to build one, but then I checked with the dealer.  It was only $40, so I bought one instead.  The lift-off hinges and slam latch came from a place up here in Ontario called Spaenaur (the Canadian version of McMaster-Carr).  The latch is a really nice one piece, lockable unit with a paddle style handle and an ...

Never heard of a 520. If it is anything like a 720, should be a splined connection, so the motor should slide free of the connection, which sounds like it is stripped. Good luck and post some pictures. - SR

Re: Man, Do I Feel Stupid! 11/11/2014 9:50:59 AM   (Total replies: 2)

Don't feel too bad about this.  I was installing an electric fuel pump in my machine a few years back and was drilling a hole in the engine bulkhead to tap for a mounting bolt for the pump.  The fuel tank is on the other side of the engine bulkhead....  you can guess what happened.

Thankfully, the fuel tank is really easy to remove on the 440b.  I tapped the hole and plugged it with an 1/8” NPT pipe plug.  So, my tank now has a drain plug!!  I am a ...

Nice projects, Mike. 

I look forward to seeing the transformation on the 773.  They are one of my favorites, too. 

That 883 looks like a sweet machine!!



Re: BobTach cylinder 7/9/2014 1:22:37 PM   (Total replies: 2)

I don't have all the dimensions handy, but they are a very customised cylinder, not something you can buy off-the-shelf (except at the Bobcat dealer).  If memory serves me correctly, they are a 1.5” bore with a 1” rod. 

I have an old bobtach at home that was power, I will take the extended and retracted pin lengths off of it for you if you wish.

If you are wanting to convert to a power Bobtach, here is a link you may find ...

How long does it run for before it quits?  Does it sputter at all before quitting or does it just die? 

Could be an ignition or fuel problem.

I vote for the electric pump. I have one on my 440b, as the mechanical pump with the siphon system that this machine uses leads to hard starting and burnt out starters. With the electric pump, I turn the key on, wait about 5 seconds for the pump to prime, then hit the starter. Easy start every time. The mechanical pump only runs when the engine is turning, and does not have much capacity at low rev's. Based on the Wisconsin's suseptablity to vapour lock, I would go with the electric pump. ...
