So I had to repair the ash/auger door latch. I had a spare so it wasn't an emergency repair but I didn't like the latch on the spare door. The original latch was made out of pot metal and the threads stripped.
So I made a new one out of steel. It actually has alot going on for such a small piece. The hole going through the center is stepped to make room for a spring. The threads had to have flats put on to keep it from rotating in the door then I had to grind a slot for a pin in the shaft to recess in to. Sure was glad to have my lathe and mill.

So I recently acquired a 2007 Kawasaki brute Force 750 it came with a snow blower, a plow, a 3 point hitch with a couple of gardening attachments and a trailer. Mainly I wanted the snowblower setup but didn't want to split it up. The wheeler has less than 400 miles on it.
I started off by removing the plow mount and then loosely installing the blower mount after looking at it for a while I decided I could modify the mounts and have it so I could have one mount with both mounting brackets. I have it welded up and paint drying on it now. Also wire wheeled some rust off the frame under the mounting plate and painted it too.

So I'm at a standstill for today. Put on a new throttle cable (modified one from the local Polaris shop) got that and the clutch control mounted. Started the engine , second pull. So left to do is order a sheperds crook for the chute crank (missing), come up with a better hook and pulley for the lift mechanism, figure out what to do with the sway chains, change the oil.
