Right as I was getting out of bed Grady called and asked how many ounces of freon his Exploder took. I sent Steph off to make coffee while I got online and started to look it up.
About the time I finished my first cup Grady pulled in the driveway, and one if Steph's classmates came over to work on some class work.
I went out and swapped the A/C compressor on Grady's Furd and then found that the new one did not come with o-rings.
He and I went to every parts house in town and no one had any. We called the parts houses in Lincolnton and they didn’t have them either. I can't believe that no one had a part for a 06 Exploder. So we ordered them from AutoZone and went to the tire shop to see if they had a tire for the Furd. He did so we went back to the house and got the Furd drivable and Grady left.
It clouded up and started to thunder so I came inside. Heath was down for a nap so it was after 130. When Steph's classmate left the sky cleared up. It never rained a drop. Since Heath was up from his nap we all went outside.
The old Bolens got dragged out of the weeds and the engine got pulled off
and the tractor got loaded on Christine. Then an old Craftsman with a seized engine and the 4wheel steer Wizard got loaded up on the trailer and I headed off to the guys house who wanted to trade for them.
We got them unloaded and got the two 12 hp Kholer Commands (one vertical one horizontal) were strapped on Christine. He asked if I had any Cub Cadets and told him I had one. We came back to the house and he looked at it.
After it got loaded back up on the trailer we headed back to his house to unload. Fortunately he doesn't live very far away. A Briggs Vanguard (which I honestly cannot remember what size its is but is a horizontal) got strapped beside the Kholers.
I had to stop at Wal-Mart for milk. beer and cookies. At around 845 I got home.
I have sweated about 12 gallons today.
Tomorrow we have to go to Charlotte to meet a childhood friend of Steph's that she has not seen in about 10 years. She is driving through NC on her way back to WV before she heads to ID. (Military wife – they are stationed in Italy) I have never met her so it should be interesting.
