Brought the new beater craftsman LT home

Here it is parked in the hay barn beside my shop. That orange hood is the moto mowers front end...IMG_1926.JPG

I like the heavy duty hood hinge on the orange one. :thumbs:

Well a couple of days ago I sanded down the back of my new to me seat on the CC. It was black with lots of rust spots all over. I got that all cleaned up and put a coat of etching primer on it then topped that off later with some epoxy paint I've had for a least 20 years. I like the off white, sort of almond color. I use it under the deck also and it holds up great. I've tried to buy some more but I think the company is out of business now.

This week I may mount another set of tires on the 106. I have 23x8.50x12 on it now and a couple of days ago i picked up a set of 23x10.50x12 with rims for $40. I going to see what they look like on the old girl.

Just finished putting a K241 in a 73 JD110 that came with a mosquito killing K181. Just need  longer throttle and choke cables and some shims behind the starter motor to be a runner again.

I tweaked the front blade on the 1864, that’s about it.

    I decided to reinstall the Sears three point onto my 782 Cub.  I also installed a set of spacers to move the rear wheels out an additional 2".  This is the second set of these I've used.  The  turf tires will be replaced by a set of Carlisle Super Lugs.   I got the job about half done when the wife "forced"  me to come to the house for supper.

    I will finish this up in the morning.   I recently got another Sears 10" plow.  It needs shined up, but if I don't do that before plow day I can still use the wife's pink plow.           Rick

I got to rebuild my 3 point carrier this week. It finally gave it up hauling firewood. This time it is smaller to avoid the over load. 30" oak gets some weight to it quickly.

    I finished installing the wheel spacers and the Sears three point hitch.  Then I did the set-upon the plow.  It should be pretty close to plowing a good furrow.  We'll see in two weeks at a local plow day.  (About an hour away)     Rick

Why not "practice" or tune it in your yard? Then it'll be real nice come plow day time

Local? Is it an hour towards me? Could use some practice.
