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)


Got the 123 dug out yesterday morning and tilled for a couple of hours. This little beast still amazes me how well-built it is. Everything about it is HEAVY! Put's the new ones to shame!

Today, I took out the elec trak and pulled a wagon to the sweet corn. My fiance actually wanted to drive. We filled up on corn. Any excuse to take the elec trak out!

I converted the spindles on my suburban from bolts to C clips that hold the hubs on. (A fun fact: the hubs are made out of the original rims)

Didn't use my tractors any, but I welded the deck hanger back on my Father-in-laws lawn mower's deck.

I haven't had a chance to do much lately with my tractors other then getting the pushrods put back in the tractor the previous homeowner left for us and then yesterday I managed to spend a little time working on the Massey MF12. I worked on straightening the hinge point and welding part of the headlight plate the was tearing. I am also going to get the one good grill trim piece put on it and then sandblast the parts grill I have and paint it and then the front of the MF12 will be like new minus paint until she gets restored.

Used loader and chain on the Sears 16/6 to move some of my Allis B bits and pieces to one spot and up on a couple pallets to get them off the ground and out of the middle of the yard.

Well, I got it running, and it runs nice, but it drains the battery quickly. I need to give it a good charge.

Started to tear down my Simplicity 7790's Lombardini Diesel engine for rebuild. Has anyone had and experience in rebuilding Lombardini Diesels?

Was mowing the steep roadside with my John Deere F935.Must have creeled the tire & blew the tube & lost my ballast mix. Limped in on the flat. Hope the tire will be ok. It's an old tire, but looked to be ok, but we'll see. Right now I'll just stick a turf wheel/tire assembly to finish the mowing.

I believe if it were possible to do a study of rolled tractors we may be surprised how many were rolled because of tire failure when the tractor was on the borderline of too much incline. One problem with gathering the information is; if the operator lives he may not know the tire failed before it rolled and if he died we certainly will leave that information space blank.
