Hot & tired as I was, I did manage to install a new choke cable assembly to the Ford LGT165. She starts easy now! I did just mow part of the yard with the Kubota G4200 too.

Mowed the lawn today with the "New" mower after fixing the pulley last night. My son took a few seconds of video for me.

Glad you got her going again. Always good to overcome a seemingly impossible problem. Home engineering is king! But steady with the camera...too much caffeine? LOL

hooked my 2 year old's radio flyer up to the Hog and he helped me load it up with sticks to take to the fire pit.

Went to town to have 2 new hydraulic hoses made for my 1655's FEL. Got them on & ready to clean some calf stalls. May start on them tomorrow.

Started cleaning up the deck on that GT 6000 tractor I bought. The guy never cleaned it up when it quit a year ago. Found newer yellow paint. Good. Kept poking around & somebody painted over the old scale. Bad. :wallbanging: Time for the needle scaler. Thin but only daylight in the 2 spots where they welded on brackets. I can fix that. I plan on Friday to get some etching primer & spray-on liner. Figure the liner will help hold it together :confuse: and maybe keep it around for a while. I also bought a new filter for the tranny, now to find some 15w-40 synthetic...

I took the mower deck off of my new (to me) Cub 123 and attached the #1 tiller. Did some tilling in the garden. I was going down one of the hilled rows, high-centered and got stuck. It was too dark to shovel my way out, so I'll get to do that in the morning. (Tiller worked great, though! Operator troubles will be overcome, eventually..... LOL)

Started cleaning stuff up for the Chilton, WI Show this weekend.

I have to quit using these tractors so I do not have to do all this clean work every time a show comes up. :wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging::wallbanging:
Some are going as is.....just to hot.
Will post pics of this show next week.

Only 30 mile to the show and it is suppose to cool down a little to mid 80s. Today was a bad one. Heat Index hit 99*.
About 75 mile to the southwest of me they hit a heat index of 109*. Humidity has been a real issue up here. My shop foreman actually turn the AC to 76* today so he did not feel like here was walking into an icebox when we could get into the office.
Had to spend a couple of hours out there myself today troubleshooting an ignition problem on a 3.0L GM. We have a lot of new tech that just came on-board and just not up to speed on forklifts yet. Basically all the same as automotive but thing look a little different and they need help finding the proper service information.
They do not get a laptop till they pass 90 Day probation period, so they need us to help then thought this period. Always hard to be the new kid on the block but both of the last 2 hires are doing very well with minimal help.
On the 3.0L it turned out to be a failed ECM and I have one on order.

I personally mowed grass on the JD 318 and then swept the heavy spots in the yard with the wh 656.
