This post is more like "what did you do FOR your tractor today"---LOL! I finally started getting rid of some junk like an old refrigerator that was a paint storage cabinet so I could move a particle board cabinet where it was. There was one more old computer hutch beside it that I had junk stored in that had to go too, so more crap for a dump run. That opened up a hole big enough where the 12G can park by the shop wall instead of in front of my welding table. I know some of the junk going to the dump will be needed soon as it's unloaded but it has to go! I need the room!

Ahh you wouldn't want it---it's a GMC Jimmy not a Blazer---LOL! It's got twice as many headlights as a Blazer! I forgot to say last night to that I found "Billy Big mouth Bass" in that computer hutch that had to be disposed of! There was a thread somewhere on this forum  a while back where that subject came up and "Bones" was all I could find then. I guess there needs to be some space on the wall made to hang these wonderful mounts!

Finished plumbing the 3 point on the 69 Case 444. It's all ready to turn some dirt now. I broke one line so it's plugged up until I get to rural king and grab another. That's ok though, 3 point is good. That line was for the mid lift.

Then proceeded to work on the Massey 214gtx. I had some wiring to do. PO decided to get a little crazy with the wire snips when the pto switch quit. Got it all repaired and ready to connect the new switch in when it shows up. Unfortunately the 2 connectors were nowhere to be found. Will just use spade terminals. I've studied the wiring diagram pretty hard and now know what every wire you see is. My head hurts haha.

HAVING A STROKE! Last night and yesterday we got snow!3"an hour!I'm thinking I got this in the bag.... NOT! Get home.. dragging bottom on my 2016 Silverado in the snow...
Anyways tractor fires right up and off we go.. slow because the stuff is deep! Get the front of the garage opened up no problem.. just turn to head down the drive and ... nothing.. engine running tractor driving but no blower.. hmmm belt failed or came off?? NOPE.. MUCH WORSE... PTO CAME OFF SHAFT AND ALL... oh no! Now What Im thinking? Seems the metal failed on the crank adapter. Well pull it in the shed crank up the heat and take it apart. No way to fix this at home.. so back to work I go...at 70mph no traffic..just snow.. that new Chevy is AWSOME! Get to work,1 hour later i have the shaft adapter all fixed better than before and head home... you guessed it.. 70mph. Yup get it on in a rush and it wont even turn..doh.. take it back apart to see why.. reassemble methodically this time.. and success! It actually runs truer than before! Whew! Finished the drive at 7pm last night... I'm beat today from stressing out over this .. but I fixed it and finished the job at hand.. dang.I hate when things go bad at the worst possible times..

Sounds like the time BMP blew a belt and ripped the wires out of the PTO, After doing surgery with a dermal and JB I was able to fix it.

I wasn't pressed like you were, I had backup mowers.

Good job on the repair, Better than new is always good!

replaced a front tire tube on the JD Sabre also removed the hood from it as it kept unclipping itself and partially coming off

 

, replaced 2 front tires on the Rover rancher 2 ( using some old tires that's been stored for a long time in a shed , use them up to make room for other stuff )

 

, reset the chain tension on 2nd reduction before the g/box on the home made tractor , and checked all the tire pressures were right.

Washer fluid was on sale at TSC.  Bought two cases, so since it was still early I went ahead and mounted the 23/8.50/12 Deestones I got on Ebay from Cleveland a month ago ($100 for the pair).  My trusty Harbor Freight tire changer sat this one out, I pulled the anchors out of the floor dismounting tires from the Suburban last year and never replaced them yet, and I didn't want to wake the 1450 that is sitting over the holes.  I started in the trucking industry busting tires in Alaska in the snow, so I figured I'd just mount them by hand.  I did eventually get them mounted using vice grips, a pry bar and lots of Dawn (and a whole bag of cuss words), but not after I found out that I'm far past 25 all of a sudden.  Forgot to take pics of that part. 

 

Once I found my lawn chair in the garage, I went ahead and loaded the ags (and I loaded the mechanic a little too).  Quick review of the 1/6 horse pump at Harbor Freight:  this one worked, for around $50, and I can use it for other stuff.  The adapter was something like eight bucks on Amazon and the washer fluid was two for $3. 

 

I decided to mount the weights on the inside, but I can't remember why.  All carriage bolts at TSC are $2.19 a pound, so when you see "wheel weight bolts" for sale for $20 don't buy them.  They are standard 1/2" carriage bolts and are available in any length you want in increments of half an inch.  To mount these I needed 3.5" bolts, which took me two trips because I somehow lost the ability to do math these days.

 

Everybody's favorite question about tires deal with measurements.  I did not measure them, but I did eyeball them against the old Goodyear turfs that are probably original (taller) and the dirt tread type I run with the snow chains (shorter, also can't read the sidewall on the dirts anymore), so they are between what I've been running and should be fine for height.  they seem a little narrower but with 5.5 gallons each and some weights I expect them to bite just fine.  I had one gallon left from a dozen.  Once I get my sleeve hitch adapter from Jeff in PA and some tuneup parts from David Kirk we will be in business for plow days!  See yinz there.

Fixed the fuel leak on the wheelhorse with a new fuel tank bushing and some new fuel line. Also I added another washer and a troy bilt belt to the troy bilt tiller to see if that fixes the problem

Learning how to weld so I wanted to Replicate a light bar for the Allis B10. Got three Blazer c123 tractor lights and wired them up. I need more metal to make a better rear light bracket. Lights are hooked directly to the battery. I figured hooking them to the regulator would burn it out.

I got the arbor for the deck of my 3410 rebuilt and installed . Now just need to remove the snow thrower from my 7112 to try it out, 3410 isn't running at this time. The nut looks like someone has done some not so good work on it in the past. One thing I have found out is the older I get the harder it is to torque to high specs. Called for 140 ft lbs but I could only get about 125 or 130.

 

The corners are rounded just a little.

Some of the damage.

Still need to find some orange paint.

Adjusted the lift assist spring on BOH. Plan on carrying the deck and blade in the show next weekend and that put's a lot of pressure on the lift lever. It was a bear, but got it done.
