Did some garden plowing with the Massey 12H yesterday.  I'd been going back and forth with this woman since early January because she wanted her garden plowed in the winter.  Every time I've tried to set something up, there has been rain or even frozen ground one weekend!  Yesterday was supposed to be the end of a 4 day warm and dry spell, so I contacted her and asked if she wanted me to try.  Got there, she had claimed there had been a garden, but its been a few years since anyone gardened.  Brambles chest high here and there, lots of "tree whips" standing about waist high.  Unfortunately I'd brought my Gravely and the rotary plow, but not the bush hog.  At one point she said " I thought about sending you a picture" and I thought "Boy I wish you had!".  Went ahead and started plowing with the Massey, but after making 3 passes, one of the "tree whips" got up into the belt drive system and popped the belt off the pulley.  I put it back on and was able to get some plowing done, but not like I'd wanted.  The ground was still wet and came off the plow "slick", instead of breading up.  I advised her this probably wasn't the best, but she really wanted it done and I'd loaded up and driven an hour, so I went ahead and did it.

Got the Squire 9 parts, started taking it apart.

Took off the BGB and engine flywheel couplings from the drive shaft, BGB needle bearing is very bad so ordered that.

Change out the hood latches for the SS hood bolts.

Today I finally scored my 6 spool valve, so now I have all the pieces to build my backhoe for the Jacobsen. Every thing on my tractor has to be pulled from scrap. I named my loader Dumpster Digger because all the material for the loader was acquired from my favorite sport, dumpster diving. I walked around the property and am getting ready for the next snow fall.I looked at my 4-wheeler that blew the front diff on the last storm, thought I should fire up the the old Willys plow truck, but as I looked around at all the plowing the old Jake got done this year I just looked at my empty gas cans and told my wife don't worry how deep the snow gets, if it's over 1 foot I'll need to fill 2 cans.

Used my MF1655D's front loader about 1 1/2 hours today.  Spread a compost pile over the garden & put out protein tubs for the cows.

Cleaned up the latest instalment of snow. We are frozen solid here. The 2320 has started ok all winter although it doesn't seem as eager to run as when new. I think it may be time to look at a new battery. The factory battery was installed late in 2007.  I also wonder if I have one glow plug that's weak or not working. That's easy to check once it's warm enough to do it without freezing my hands off.

Awoke this morning to about 3" of new snow.  So that gave me the chance to play with the 782 Cub Cadet.  Cleared my drive and around the workshop.  Also did six other drives/parking area for the neighbors.   I put a peice of schedule 40 on the blade.  I really like the way it works over the gravel and grass.   Rick

Put new points, condenser, and plug in my 1974 Montgomery Ward 16.  Then took it out and spent some time blowing the new snow we got.

Today I did nothing with my tractor as it is Sunday the day of rest. I had refilled my fuel cans getting ready for the week to come. I know that it is not what I can do with my tracto,r but all the does for me.

Last day of spring, day b4 20 ft of snow fell, I locked up my PTO and today I finally got the time to fix it tmp_20140303_1544211492758421.jpg tmp_20140303_154409-1836183544.jpg Took it apart and found that one of the belts jumped the pulley. Time for new belts. You were right Danieltmp_20140303_154341-1243304761.jpg tmp_20140303_1445001023877045.jpg tmp_20140303_144448-1643600756.jpg

I've been wanting to get a v-belt pulley mounted on my burr mill so I can run it with the walk behind. Finally had time to get it done today and it works great! I cut my time by almost an hour running it with a gas engine vs an electric motor. Now to figure out how I can get something mounted on the corn sheller so I don't have to run it by hand.
