Well I started the weekend off by replacing a bad wheel bearing in my truck, just to find out both lower ball joints were shot.  Good news is everything else is in great shape.  I have a friend that runs commercial sales for AutoZone so instead of the $200 it would cost....I spent $80.  I figured after church this morning I would work on the Sears for a bit and I got all the re-wireing done, new starter solenoid in, new ignition in, all new wires, conectors etc.....cleaned all the aditional conections that were still good and then cleaned the carb.  I feel pretty good as most weekend I feel like doing absolutly NUTHING lately from 70+ hrs a week mon-fri at work.  How was everyone elses weekend?  Anyone else get any tractor repairs/resto work accomplished?

Here's a few pics cause we all like pics.........lol

Went and picked up the 'toy hauler'. Stripped the boards out to see what damage existed.

Now I just hope I can remember where everything goes, so I can get it back together after painting!   ~~  Lowell

Looks like a nice project Kenny!  Must have been overloaded something fierce to ben those angles like that?  WHERE ARE YOU GOING TO PUT THE RESTORE THREAD? I need something like that for a project I have in the works and will be watching how you do it.

I drew a castle.  Daughter's project but I know CAD so we sat all day and I drew what she directed me to draw.  Turned out great and we had a lot of fun.

I take pics of everything.  That's the great thing about phones these days.  That way before I rip something down I know what it looks like to refer back to later if need be.....

It's not a tractor, but I built this side table to match the dining room table I built a couple of months ago.

I also started putting the 1254 back together, but stopped when I realized I don't have an idler pulley. image.jpg

Nice table, clean design. What kind of wood?

Top and shelves are aspen, the legs are poplar. This is what happens when your wife is an interior designer!
