Sure sucks that we don't have more time for our projects

That's what retirement is for. Get up everyday and you have something enjoyable to look forward to. Looking back it is a amazing what a person is able to accomplish while they are working and raising a family.

Your oil pan really came out nice. Cant wait to see you driving around on it. :thumbs:

But Chris, I'm a dairy farmer & will likely only get to retire when they lower me 6' under! :wallbanging: :confuse:

Daniel if you don't slow down they will never be able to get you in the hole :angel:
AND your a dairy farmer because you want to be.
I had the chance to take over the farm but I do NOT like dealing with live stock :(

Hammer how much time do you have left before the show you were taking this tractor too?

You've still got time then. I was getting a little worried that you were getting into a corner. Here's hoping that the rest of the project goes smoothly for you.

Got some work done on the 3 point hitch. I was hoping to have the radiator yesterday but it didnt show up. Also have a mechanical fuel pump and fan shroud coming. I should be able to drive it around next weekend as long as the parts show up.

I hate when parts don't show up and you have to rearrange the building schedule. Let's hope they show tomorrow in good shape.

Your not going to let a little thing like 14 hours hold you back are you? :rofl2:
If I did a 14 hour day I'd have to take the next week off to recover. :p

After a 14hr day, I'd be too pooped to poop! I have those days way too often as I get older. I'll be putting in about 12 today. Vet is on his way now.
