Pics at end because my tablet is being a jerk.
At 545am there was a horrible noise. I went to investigate and Jareds alarm was going off for some reason. I nearly strangled him.
I tried to go back to sleep and only managed to doze off a bit.
We got up at some time later and

Then we goofed and watched tv till Heath went down for a nap. Jared and I left to go get some seafoam and gas.
After dosing the Ss12 and hooking it to a battery it would turn over but not fire. I told Jared to get the brake cleaner out of the Ox. While he was looking he managed to spray carb cleaner in his eyes, I led him in and we washed th3m out. He is fine.
While he sat inside I went out and got the tractor started. It ran fine.
I got started on the tiller and couldn't get it to run. The breather would not come off either. A little investigating and I found that the sediment bowl on the gas tank is plugged up. The bolts are frozen so I hosed it with PB Blaster.
I finally got the breather off. I will have to run a die over the stud.
I pulled the spark plug and spraued some PB in the cylinder. After it sat a while I poured in some Seafoam, and let it sit some more.
When I pulled the rope with the plug out it sprayed nastiness everywhere. Once the plug was back in it fired up and ran for a few seconds till the cyl cleared out.
Tomorrow I will pull the bowl off and try to clean it out.
Anyone have a manual on it.
Also attached a pic of the tines.
Jared finally came back out and drove the tractor about 10 feet before it ran out of gas.
Then the big dogs were turned loose and Gunner chased them around the yard. When they went back in the pen Gunner was covered in slobber.
Now we are watching Whose Line is it Anyway.
Jared goes home at 9.
