Here in a little bit I'm going to fabricate and replace a few of my broken and/or missing sheet metal tabs on my 1250. Then I may replace some wiring if I have time.

Oh he loves the fumes...so much that he fires that chainsaw up every afternoon also to get the aroma of the 2-stroke oil! The fumes & a beer or 2 (or 3), and he's one happy camper!:bigrofl: :smilewink:

I just got back from dad's place. I charged the Elec Trak while I picked the popcorn for drying. I plan to charge it once a month to keep the batteries ok over the winter here.

Just got all the popcorn hung. Neat sticky thread!

I finally have the engine back down into the frame!

Now I just need a few 3/8 lock washers and some new triple spring pins and I'm ready to bring it back alive. :)

Finally had time to work with the JD330. Stopped by JD and picked up the fender support and got it installed. Water heater caught on fire Tuesday night and got it replaced last night. Lucky I was home and awake and got it put out b4 it did any damage to the house. Yep, a electric water heater can catch on fire :mad2:

I gave the zero turn a bath before its winter nap. Got her all cleaned up and changed the oil. Now all that's left is to get some stabilizer in the fuel tank...and then nighty night!
