When I click for close-up, my eyes try to cross! LOL Is this your problematic camera Maynard?


Daniel, it's that model of camera they sell for craiglist pictures. It called the "Flaw and Blemish Hider 2000"

Sorry Maynard. Glad you're making headway!

Today I finally made some progress on the homemade tractor. I got the steering gear mounted, and only need a few more bolts to finish the mount. I also got my LT1000 started today so I can use it to mow the lawn some this summer if the grass will grow.

Sunday I finaly got around to washing down the G-12 and snowcaster, "gotta make sure the road salt is off of them" was my defence to the wifes criticism. :thumbs:
Gave all the bare metal on the caster a good spray of p.t.f.e. and put it where will be "away" for now.
Then mostly enjoyed watching it go around the yard pulling the spike aerator with the next generation taking turnes in the seat. :dancingbanana::beer:

This thread has a hidden advantage, I keep a spreadsheet with tab for each tractor to log maintenance and work done on each tractor. Well today I was updating it and I realized that I hadn't logged a few things. With a quick search of GT talk and this thread I was able to fill in the gaps of my maintenance log.

Today, I rebuilt the carb on the little Ford 75 I picked up yeserday. Then added a new battery, slime, new hood bolts, and lastly an 8 year old to the seat. He had a great time mowing the lot with it.

I spent some time with the case 444 today, about 2 hours worth. I finally fixed the issue with charging, and it has actually improved the starting, made it happier anyway. It turned out to be a faulty voltage regulator, but I did replace some damaged wires too (before I finally put a new 40 dollar regulator on it).

Keep plugging away Maynard. You have at least posted pics. I still have to ask George to put my pictures on the site. One of these days I'll learn.

Well I got the Sears SS12 running today. Put gas in it and found out I had a broken fuel line. I tried to just feed the new line through but it would work so I pulled the flywheel tin work off and tried again. still no luck so I pulled the flywheel and ran the new gas line. Since everything was dry it took a couple of pulls to start but it did eventually start. I drove it around for a few minutes and then parked it. When I went out later to pack it in for the night I noticed gas on the garage floor again. It is leaking out of the carburetor now so I guess I will get a rebuild kit for it and just rebuild it.

Went into town to grab a couple of items to hopefully bring life back into the wards 15hydro I got last week. Still need to get a case of pb blaster for when I tear into the deck. I want to be mowing the weeds tomorrow hopefully I will have a vid of it running today.
