:bigrofl:

You beat me to it. Hahaha!!!

Just finished up the build of a front weight bracket. At the first plow day I took it to, the frontend spent the whole time in the air. That was with a 10" plow and I want to hook the 12 to the 3 point.

I think 2 of these should keep it grounded. Not bad for a deck bracket repurpose.

Well today I tore the carb off the restored 208 as she had a little dirt problem.
Installed an inline filter and shut off in line under the tractor where the fuel line
runs which will also help with Winter storage and act as an anti theft device.
The carb is no longer nicely painted black to match the engine but she runs better

It helps to be able to steer while plowing!

Figured out why drive belt was slipping occasionally on Moms older mower. Idler on belt clutching sticking + belt worn and longer than it should be + Murphy's law= intermittent reduction in power to the point it wouldn't climb a hill.

Replaced bad idler with one from something else (modifications needed) and will be ordering new belt tomorrow nite.

I awoke the Allis 416S from it's slumber. Washed the top of the deck off and greased her up for future duties. It's running sweet as I could feel the exhaust hitting me 15' away at idle!

Not my tractor but my ZT 2242. I have a few wet spots in the yard that I seem to always get stuck in so I went to my favorite tire dealer and got a pair of ags for it.

I also swapped mower decks on my 7112. Had the deck that is set as high it will go and put on one set at a normal height.

Let me know how the AGW work on the ZTR.

I mowed with it after installing and it ran great. Didn't have any trouble knowing where I had mowed on short grass.

We have a set of ags on the Grasshopper at the church, it's a must or we would end up in the pond. Doesn't leave any marks on the lawn unless you hammer down or spin it around.

I got my starter for my Simplicity chipper/shredder made yesterday and it works. Used a socket and a 1/2" carriage bolt and nut. Ground the head down to fit inside the socket, add the nut and lock washer, chuck in drill and start the engine.

Years ago I needed a valve for the outriggers on the Pippin Backhoe mounted on the Ford 3400 , the only one I had ( free lol)  was a 3 spool with no pressure relief in it , it was OK if you were VERY CARFUL when using the outriggers but since this tractor  is heading to my son's house and a good change he'll use it I didn't want to take a chance him deadheading the pump and breaking something . I installing a 4 spool valve with relief in it . the 2 outside spools with be for the outriggers , I put a detent on one of the middle spools with plans of running quick couplers off that , the other could be used if I ever build a hydraulic thumb  .

I put a new seat on the Cub 1811 today.  I found the seat at our local supply store the other day while walking around with my kids.  I was very surprised to see it there and the price was even reasonable at $70.  I also adjusted the high and low idle screws on the carb.  The high was a little rich and the low was to lean and would die.  She runs good now!

I went a little crazy with the camera so here are a bunch more pictures include some with my dogs!

I've only owned this tractor for 8 months and I really enjoy it!

Is there a brand on that seat? Matches my Massey 214gtx exactly and it needs one.

No brand label on the seat.  All it had was a price sticker.

The paint job on the Ford looks good.  Hopefully the tractor will return back to you with everything in order!
