Replaced the front spindle and king pin bushings, all 8 of them on the 999. Instead of the factory nylon I used oilite bearings from Mcmaster-Carr. Less than half the price of the factory bushings. PN# 2938T26

Replaced the front axle assembly on my JD LT155. Had a lot of play at front axles. Originally had the welded steel axle and solid tie rods. Found a cast iron axle on ebay for 38bucks! Hard to pass it up. Also did a little fab. work on the tie rods and now they are adjustable to correct toe in! Great Day!

Made a clutch rod on my Sears suburban Saturday, it has been grinding gears for some time, new belt, islets and brake band and I could not get adjustment properly. I had either good shifting w/no brakes or brakes with grinding gears. I made this up with a piece of all thread, nuts and found bar. Got it on and adjusted, now I have no grinding and great braking.

Pulled the deck off the Bolens H-16 because the last time I used it, the belt broke. Took the opportunity to clean the deck, make some minor repairs while I had it out and apart.

Painted some MF red on parts for the 14 going thru restoration. The rest of the day spent working on a guys 8N ford that he just bought. Ignition tune up then ended up having to replace the fuel bowl shut off due to it being rusted shut. After I gas flowing it was pouring out of the carb, pulled the carb apart everything rusted up. First time i have ever seen green algae inside a carb. Ended up doing a full carb rebuild, tractor now runs. Tomorrow it will get and engine oil change.

I had brought my son's White GT 2550H to my house this week because it just didn't to have the power and when the blade were engaged the whole thing just vibrated . I was hoping it was maybe a bad plug or , since it has 2 carbs maybe one needed cleaning but ,changing a plug didn't do anything and checking the exhaust temp..compression  confirm a dead cylinder . Pulled the valve cover off and saw the push rod off got me excited thinking it was just a adjuster that had backed off , nope valve was stuck open because the seat had come  off  . Tuff part was getting the keepers off . I made a tool but even after getting the seat close to going back in place you could only compress the spring just enough to get them out , I guess I should be honest here that my wife was helping me as I was having a hard time getting them off then after about 5 minutes she said to just use a screwdriver  and after being married 32 years I knew I had to at least try , which worked in just a few seconds lol

Thanks. If you were closer I would love to help with restoring your two XL10s. Those are my favorite sears tractors. Been trying to find another after I got rid of mine. :worshippy1:
