I put a new K341 in the MF1450, going to swap hoods also, so now my 1450 is a 1650. I got the steering column out of the MF14 and ready to install new column

Did nothing with the tractor, but did some work on my Onan B48G 18hp that will go on my MF1655 w/FEL when finished. Got the block clear of gaskets, chased all the threads out, honed the cylinders & lapped the valves. Gonna do a good wash on the block, then start re-assembling it. Crank bearings are great, but got new cam bearings, piston rings, and all the gaskets I needed. Just finished turning some steel on my lathe into a cam bearing driver.

Today was the first mowing for me. I had to jump start the 112 John Deere. It sat all winter but just wouldn't start, battery was low. The charging system just doesn't keep up on it. I think the stator is getting bad. I mowed the flat yard up behind my house then brought the 112 down to the shop to change oil and check her over.

You guys up north arre lucky. How many times to you have to mow, 2, 3 times, lol. I'm getting ready to mow for the 4 time and I'm behind due to monsoon seaon. The last two years have brought us close to 60 inches from January to July. The rain and lack of sun have caused gardens to wither, so I'm planting in the end of June, first of July. We rarely see a freeze till first part of December and it doesn't realy matter when the crops are mature as it does when there starts or flowering

Mike, we're about 5" behind normal rainfall. I don't like the trend I'm seeing either. Many parts of the country, like the NE are getting deluged as you. Then other spots are dry & can't pray rain in. That is exactly the weather pattern 2 & 3 years ago when we had drought here.
Besides Mike, I love mowing....when I don't get too far behind. I mowed some today, then worked on the Onan engine I'm rebuilding. Time to milk again, so see ya'll later!

Also tore apart the carb on the craftsman to clean it since it was leaking gas into the oil.

Problem seems to be fixed now.

Didn't do anythging with the tractors today but I did fix a leaky lift pump and put the muffler back on yesterday, I had a stack on the 920 but the motor shakes too much and it broke the pipe right under my weld, hell it was too loud anyway with it on there. HOLY CRAP I just came to the realization that I'm getting old.
