Used the Sears/loader to move Allis B parts out of the way of 2 large trees that we then cut down. Making room for a 2 bay car port to get my toys in one place and under some cover:dancingbanana::dancingbanana:

Just purchased my MF last week, it didn't run so I worked on it till it fired up. Carb needs a good clean. I have high hopes for this machine!

New to me John Deere 214. Have been working on it for about a week. Today, I replaced all 4 rubber motor mounts. Runs much smoother now. Jeff.

I got to play with my Cub 123 and #1 tiller this afternoon for the first time since I took it apart, cleaned it, and painted it. Had lots of fun tilling, and had a few "YIPPEE!!" moments and a few "RATS!!!!" moments:

In the YIPPEE!!!!! column:

It looks great!!!
Everything fit like it was supposed to.
It tills VERY WELL!!
Much less work compared to wrestling with a two-wheeled tiller.

In the RATS!!!!! column:

Had a couple of bolts fall off that I hadn't tightened properly, had to fix.
Broke the skinny drive belt. Must've been too tight. Need to order a new one.
Could stay outside all day, but it always has to get dark!!!

But, all in all, a GREAT afternoon/evening!!!

Got a call from my friend that the bevel gear shaft for the B112 should be done tonight & I can pick up tomorrow morning. :smile1: Got the new bearing pressed in & started to make a new alignment pin (one of the 3 are missing... has been for a while). Felt good to get dirty hands after the day I had @ work... even if only for a few minutes.

Readying for local show this Saturday. The MF12H had problems. A big dirt dauber next on the hydro belt idler ran the belt off & bent the hydro cooling fan. Got that fixed, washed it, the customized JBI, then went ahead & loaded them and the rusty D4-10 & unrestored JBI on the trailer. Need to do some little things to each while on the trailer before day of show. Figured to get them loaded while I had time. No telling what could take my time later.

Mowed again with the GT6000, finished rounding up the parts I think I'll need for working on the B112 tomorrow night.

Hooked up the tiller to the 214. Adjusted the drive chain tension for the tiller. Tightened up manual PTO clutch. Ready to till up my Dad's garden once the sweet potatoes are dug. I am hoping to get him on the tractor this time. He could not handle the manual lift on my other tractor. Jeff

Today I put some fuel stabilizer in the 800 and 1050 and put them away for the season. Had to make room for the snow equipment.

Replaced the leaking fuel line on the B112, last thing I'm doing before winter, putting it in the back of the garage tomorrow. If I have time next year, I'll do a carb job, right now I'm outta time and have other projects I promised time to.

I went up the road yesterday to an antquie plow day and shouldn't have even unloaded. The ground was sticky and like rubber. Nothing for GTs.
Also found some problems with the hydro on the 1655. Not pulling a load well. Have some serious work to do. May just slide in a different Hydro.

Real stinker when the expectations of an event are better than the event itself. Been there, done that.

Oh, well, it's better to be playing with your hobby and a little frustrated than at work and a little frustrated. :D
