184 With McKee Snow Blower

Postby jensenracing77 » Sat Dec 04, 2021 12:45 pm

I got the 184 finished. Ended up milling the head .050, lapped the valve, pulled the front beam and cleaned the pivot pin and added a shim to tighten, worked on the steering, new clutch and clutch parts, and several other little things done. Mounted the McKee snow blower on it and ready for snow. Here is a You Tube video of it running with the blower.

Spray that rusty snow chute with SlipPlate before the first snow.

I was thinking about taking it off to bead blast and paint it. I have never used the SlipPlate but I heard it works good on the bottom of mower decks also. I may get some and try it. I plan to do some work tot he mower deck for this before Spring. Is there any kind of coating for the bottom of mower decks I can use while I have it apart.

I’ve heard of people using spray can bed liner on the underside of decks, after blasting the rust off.

Very nice looking and running 184. Not even a rattle from the PTO belt tensioner.
Don't forget to replace that gas cap with a free one from IH. Those flat ones have a burning history.

I sprayed the underside of my mower deck with a can of undercoating. In most places it wore off the first year. By the second year it was non-existent. Pretty sure it didn't like being sand-blasted by the blades. Maybe a bed liner or thicker (tougher) product would be better.
