Glad things are working towards you getting some play time, George. On the hone, I went to O'Reillys to rent it. Had to put up the cost as a deposit. They said I could keep it if I wanted. Since it was a brand new one, I chose to keep it.

Glad to hear it, I thought you were going to give up on fixing it and sell it to me. :D

Good deal, that's a tool you will use infrequently, but worth having.

Now you just need to find a good Air Compressor.

This is good news George.

The kids are growing up fast, and they'll want to get out and cut

the lawn with their mother. :smilewink:

Ok, have it set in my head now that I will be getting the motor back together this weekend. Just gotta get a ring compressor to get the piston back in. I am going to try and get it honed tonight and start cleaning and assembling tomorrow. I don't know if I will remember how everything goes back together though.

 

I still need to get some sheet metal to build the battery box. It would be great if I could get it back together in time for the plow day.

Good to hear you back on it again!! You have a really nice one! I am thinking yours is actually a HW-12 based on the books.....I know you have HD-12 on the side....but the only difference I can find between the HD and the is the wide tire option that is on yours.

 

George your front tires are 20 x 8 x 10 is that right?? According to the books that is what it should be

Scott,

I can't remember what size tires are on the front. I know they do seem like they are larger. I think they might even be the same size or larger than the ones on my Massey 1655.

That's good news George! Good luck :thumbs: I was just thinking (i Know Dangerous :D ) Places like Auto Zone might have ring compressors to rent? I do that with a lot of specialty tools that I won't use often. And you get the money back when you return it :dancingbanana:

Just a thought, Not even positive if they have that to rent.

This is awesome, GREAT News. If all goes well for you, BH will be up on her feet in no time. :thumbs:

 

The youngins are anxious to see mom up and about.

You know George, that tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary, that she got on your trailer

and left her family behind. And they haven't seen a single child support cheque... :(  :(  :poke:  :rolling:  :rolling:

I did get some work done on the Bush Hog. I got the motor all back together ready to be put back in the tractor. I tried to finish up with some wet sanding on the golf cart to get some of the runs out of the paint and it isn't going so well. I am just going to put it outside for now and probably paint it again next weekend. 

 

I want to get the Bush Hog outside so I can pressure wash the frame as it is pretty messy down in there before I put the motor back in.

Great to hear George, and I'm sure good for your mental therapy!  I've been tinkering on my day ff cow duty, and it's sure feels good!  You'll be plowing deeper/faster with this HD soon!

The hardest part I think is trying to figure out how everything came apart. Been so long since I tore it apart I done forgot how it goes back together. :D

 

Once I can get the engine back in I will work on some of the wiring and I also need to make up some sort of battery holder. Will did a great job making one out of wood and had some of the stuff mounted to it. I don't know if I will be able to figure out the exact factory locations for the stuff or not.
