Ryan & I got some more garage time today. Downloaded the service manual for the MF10 & tried to do what they said on the belt adjustment, we may be putting it back the way it was as the belts now seem a little loose. Anyways, Ryan got to take it out on it's maiden voyage. That Variator handle may take some getting used to for him.


You'll see in one of the vids (sorry, no audio... mic was off) that it needs weights & chains... and a driver that doesn't corner into the unplowed snow. LOL

Drove the diesel JB up to BIL meangreen's house. Was going to make a video of it driving, but right rear went flat on way home, so limped it in & changed out to a better tire. By time I got finished, my buddy Cecil stopped by & didn't get the video made. It will come soon.


CRAP, didn't know you had a flat on the way back. Drive her back up and I'll make a video for you. Still have ruts in the driveway where ya pealed-out :yelclap::yelclap::yelclap:

Switch came for the SS12 today. My MIL stayed for a little (babysitting while wife was at work) and let me install it. Charge light wasn't working when I bought the tractor, so while I had it all apart, I changed the bulb. Now the switch works better than I expected & the charge light does what it's supposed to. All around great night! Tomorrow I hope to take the rest of the mower stuff off & put the snow blade on it. We have a parent teacher conference, so that comes 1st...

Had a little time today so sand blasted and painted my new cast wheel weights for the bolens and also ordered a dash decal for it. Have to replace the plastic dash that broke with a metal one.

After a roller-coaster like Parent Teacher Conference re: my Daughter... I finally got a chance to xfer the 25# weights from the 7 & make a set of chains for the SS12. Too late to fire up, but something to look forward to tomorrow nite.

Had a gravy night at work doing some gundrilling.
So I had a chance to pull out the dusty piece of flatbar that will become my sleeve hitch, and finish drilling the holes in it.

The weather forecast for here is for a winter storm Saturday night through Sunday night with 5 to 10 inches of snow. I gased up the Snapper 1650 with the blower and the Farmall H with the loader on it. I have 2 five gallon cans of gas sitting in reserve. BRING IT ON!!!!
