After 6 weeks on crutches the doctor said I can start putting weight on my leg wearing the special support boot. So I went in the garage today and started all 3 of the bolens. It sure was good to hear them run. I was hoping to take them for a drive around the yard but we need to move some other tractors to get them out. Maybe over the weekend when we have time.

Glad to hear that you're up and about!
I started 2 of the Wheel Horses (the C-105 and the 314) and the Bolens today. I shoehorned the Bolens and the C-105 closer together so I could get the snow plow and chains on the 314 before the snow flies! She's all ready for winter now. I also sent my Zero turn off to the repair shop for some warranty work.

We had a new hay tedder delivered today. Was on a tilt slide bed truck, so had to drive my Kubota G4200 back onto the bed till she spun, then he leveled the bed. Hooked to the tedder, then he tilted while I was ready to jet off before the tedder pushed me. All went slick & drove it right off with no incident.

Not my tractor but I tried to get my neighbors snapper 1650 running for him. It's his snowblower tractor and the starter went out early last winter. He just got a starter for it. It has sat outside since the starter quit. Got it to run at 1/2 throttle and up but will not idle. To much crap in it for the usual tricks of running a torch tip cleaner through the passageways from outside. Have to get a kit tomorrow and tear the carb apart and give it a good cleaning.

I am happy to report that we got to use two of our tractors today. We started splitting and stacking on the wood pile, seems like we barely made a dent but we got to use the Cub 147 and the Huskee so dad had transportation and a place to sit while running the splitter since he is still in his boot from breaking his ankle.

I found a kit for the carb for the neighbor's 1650 Snapper. Last night I brought it over to my garage and started working on it. The carb was pretty full of crud. It took about 15 minutes to get the nozzle that screws up through the center of the carb out. I kept spraying penetrating oil on the threads and kept working it out a 1/8 of a turn or so and then turning it back in to work the penetrating oil in the threads. I finally got it out and got the carb cleaned out and put back together. He had broken out the plastic around where the choke cable went through the dash so removed the cable and put two 3/8 flat washers on either side of the cable to hold it in place. Then I had to reform the end of the throttle cable where it fastenes to the throttle lever as it had broken off. Then the screw that holds the throttle and choke cables in place on the engine was stripped out so I had to find a little longer screw and put a nut on the bottom side of the bracket. At least after all this tinkering it runs well and he is happy with it.

Nice looking Hood!

I know what you mean by the joy of seeing the positive reading on the ammeter. It seems these generators/regulators always have issues.

I took dad's Sears super 12 out to take down the temporary electric fence and posts from the sweetcorn and sunflower field. Gotta love those Sears tractors. Alot of power and very little non sense.

Got 5 minutes with the "Idea Pile" and started sorting stuff for a rear carrier deck for my sleeve hitch.

Then I went up to my Dad's & helped him rewire the 10SI GM alternator retro-fit on his 1943 101 jr. It's the tractor he uses to haul around his splitter. His "Woods-Mo-Buggy" so to speak. He hooked the wiring on a branch and ripped it all out... including the idiot light in the dash. It's all back in & working now. Whew.

WOW! Wish I could Help My Dad with a project. He has gone in 94.
Value that time, it is shorter than you can imagine.
