Well up at plow day I lost one of the bolts that holds the S/G on my CC129, the hole finally stripped out.

So today was the day to fix it. I bought a 5/16th Helicoil kit, then had to buy a 21/64th drill bit, and some new bolts.

I removed the S/G and bracket and repaired the stripped out hole, and put it all back on. I was tightening the last bolt in the bracket and I stripped it out. So I ad to removed everything and fix the other hole.

I should have fixed it the first time.

Now on the garden, I have collards to plant.

It's always something. I love helicoils. I wish I could get in the garden. Still to muddy here.

With this older stuff, if it isn't one thing it seems to be something else to fix.

Lost a spring on the mule drive for the snowblower on the Homelite, bought a replacement, snow melted some and found the original, and now the slightly worn belt won't stay on. I have about had it with the Homelite. Might see a post in the 'what did you do to your gt today' thread about me shooting the damn thing with the .45. And the 30-30. And the 10 gauge.

Oh, and it would not start after sitting for about a week and a half. Crank, crank, crank, battery charger, then starting fluid. I have had it.

When the Bolens is done, I'll try that out. If it works, then the Homelite is getting the boot. I'm sick of that darn carb on that Briggs, it's junk.

Well I got quite a few things done today. First I didn't unload the trailer when I got home from Plowday, so the first thing I did was hook it up and head to the car wash. I washed the dirt off the DB, then I unloaded and fixed the CC. Took it back down to the carwash and washed under the tiller. Next I got my Snapper RER out changed the oil, aired up the tires, sharpened the blade and gave it a bath.

 

So today turned out good.

What Brigg is on that creature?  Large Flo-jet carburetor?

Single 16 hp with that idiotic updraft carb. If it's not leaking, that means it's running.
