I'm kind of surprised at the way your friend took care of the thing. If anyone else treated a tractor that way, I think you would rage at them. But, maybe I'm wrong. Your just a big puppy!

It's just sad how he took care of it. He tilled his garden ONE time and never used it again except to move it around and then to where it sat till I got it. He bought with the tiller installed and never used the other attachments.

I have to be a big puppy with him. He gives me LOTS of work. Anyone else did that ? I'd pistol whip em.

Hey get this.. I changed a starter on a GMC pick up in 24 hours (i had to go get a new starter).. :thumbs:  That dang work bench seems to be 200 feet long... :wallbanging:

 

:bigrofl: :bigrofl:  almost forgot the eternal workbench cleaning project!!

Don't you have something to do??  :dancingbanana:  something about restoring a JD..  :D

 

 Anyone else did that ? I'd pistol whip em.

At times yes, but they are very limited times. Lol

I've never seen an engine so infested with mice, well that was infested with mice. These pics are just what I haven't gotten out yet. I'm going to vacuum out the rest rather then blow all the mouse crap all over the place. ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364298860.970855.jpg ImageUploadedByTapatalk1364298880.290233.jpg

I'm also going to TRY to clean the heads with something ? Maybe aluminum jelly ? Any suggestions ? I know clean = better air flow, better cooling.

Dissolve 1 can of Red Devil Ly (NaOH) into about 2-3 cups of water in a 1 gallon jug. Then mix separately some corn starch with about a 1/2 cup of cold water.  Add the two together in that gallon jug and mix. Be careful, wear gloves and glasses, and don't spill it. It gets hot. When the mix has a the consistency of gravy, it's ready. You just want it stiff enough to cling to vertical surfaces. Pour the gravy on and move it around with a brush.

After washing the gravy off several times with water,  spray  Phosphoric Acid onto the surface. This will convert the red rust to black oxide which will not oxidize any further. It will also add a thin phosphate coating which will help protect it further. Then just scuff sand it, wipe it down, prime and paint.

 

Watch out with that mix, I hear it's nasty. I haven't ever tried it myself. Not sure if it's safe for aluminum?

 

Otherwise brake cleaner, or simple green (or purple power) and scotchbrite pads.

You can just use diluted white vinegar or flat old cola. Use a spray bottle, keep it wet for 1/2 hour and rinse it off. Use a second application if you need too. I get the white vinegar for $2 a gallon when it is on sale and have found it great for cleaning. On pot metal and aluminum it can pit if left too long. Good Luck, Rick

You could buy a end mill and a couple blocks of aluminum and machine out new fins..  Great excuse for a new tool..
