Washed the JD 100, getting ready for our Labor Day show,  West Liberty Ohio.

 

Found a mouse nest under the tin, took off the hood and tin and cleaned out the nest.

Luckily their was no wires chewed,  drained the fuel and put in new fuel filter.  Started right up.

 

I must have a serious talk with my barn cat, she is in charge of rodent control !!

Need more info on the show, directions, dates.

Redid motor mounts on the moto mower with my sister... one dropped out, stepmom found the washer in the driveway.

Probably taught her some more of my grasp of the English language, the air musta been blue.

Also did an oil change on the roper rt16

Mounted my new/used seat I got at Portland show for $15 on my CC 106. It's in great shape and the back is higher than the old seat, also thicker padding. Bolt pattern also matched perfectly. My old seat was a cover type thing that kept sliding off when I mowed.

Well I successfully fit a new engine in my 1968 Sears SS12 Hydro, although its not exactly a 68 anymore because of the engine swap and then the needing to swap out front grill and hood with a 69 I had so that I could accommodate the air cleaner, Id say the swap went pretty good. The hardest part for me was cutting into this old survivor but I was running out of Tecumseh parts, fining many parts were no longer available. I need this tractor for mowing and snow blowing so plan to use it many more years so sprung for a new engine.

The reason I used the 69 grill is because I had to cut it away to fit the engine and did not want to cut the 68 grill up, plus the 69 fit perfect for this engine I think by taking both sides of the grill off it now has a pretty cool look, but all in all I don't care to much because after all its all about blowing snow for this tractor.

No cutting needed to this side of the grill can fit my pinky in between the exhaust and the grill.

I could not think of a better place for the exhaust to exit. With the hood shout you can't get burned by this one. 

 

Sorry Tecumseh but it was not practical for me to hold on to your well built steed of an engine, now lets see if the Subaru will have the life it needs to wear out this Sears hydro rear end...lol

I like it! Keeps it going much longer. I wonder if the engineers expected their creations to last this long.

I just hope this engine can wear this tractor out. The tecumseh tried for 50 years.

I put a tube in the leaky front tire of my CC. Had to pump it up every time I needed to mow. Even though it's only an 8'' wheel I got quite a workout putting the tire back on. I used the trick one of the members posted about using the vise grip pliers on one side of the rim when installing. Time for a brown pop break!

I probably made that post! Do it often when putting tires on the rims. My wheel holder makes a bunch of difference!

After tubing the leaky front wheel I got out my IH #2 cart and washed it. Then took my grandaughter for a ride in the yard. She was fascinated with the tools I had out for the work. She is 21 months old.

Inspired by the "how do you like your tractor?" thread- I got off my butt and washed mine! Usually I just hit it with a leaf blower after mowing  to clean the grass off it. Maybe about twice a year I get out and wash it. I don't like water in the deck.

Standing back about 15 feet makes all the scratches go away!  :D

Discovered that the front blade mount on the 1864 had one nut out of three, and it was loose. I fixed that and tightened up a bunch of stuff that was loose.

Broke the seat on the roper rt16. Cussed at the roper and Then I made sure it was broke.

Pillaged the seat from the sears crapsman and installed on the roper. That seat is a bunch stiffer...
