A nice turn-out - about 50 tractors.
It was great meeting another gttalk member. Hoped to have some time to visit, but was kinda busy and didn't get much of a break.

I'm told that the sled weighs at least 2000 lbs. It's hard to know the exact weight. To make the sled harder to pull, the chain can be attached at one of 3 different heights. The top height is about 12". Also the weights can be added to the skid pan and the transfer box.
I found a picture with your MTD 960 - blue tractor in the top-left corner.
There are more pictures available on the web site and a facebook page I'm setting up.

Anyone know if they cross-reference to a more cost-effective SFK, NTN or ???

Earlier, while pulling the clutch assembly I broke a bolt that holds the steering gear.
Finally got the steering off and still cannot get the broken bolt out. I drilled through the bolt and was hoping that would loosen up the bolt. Still too tight to move. I put an easy-out on it - still no movement. Didn't want a broken easy-out in the mix.
Not sure what to do next. I don't have a tap-n-die set (yet?).
