Got the charcoal on the seat pan where I wanted, waiting for mounts to ship. Ran the Onan some and changed the oil again. Other than that I chilled.

Managed to get a little "therapy" time in today! I pulled the main drive pulley off of the 8 HP Briggs engine that was installed on my Wheel Horse Commando 6 and installed it on the HH60 that's still on the bench. Then I pulled the Briggs off of the tractor and set it aside for now. I also installed the fuel line on the HH60, but alas, I have no hose clamps. I'll have to get some of those when i go to pick up the parts for the push mower on Friday. Lastly, I threw a coat of primer on the "new" air cleaner assembly for the HH60.

Sounds like a very productive day. But as someone who has gotten use to garden tractors, what is a push mower ? Is that when your tractor runs out of gas and you have to push it ?

Today I mounted the tiller onto the Bolens 1600H. I also removed the weight box, the snow blower and swapped the studded tires out on the Bolens 1220. Maybe tomorrow I will get a mowing deck or two out and onto a tractor. Got to till the in-laws garden first though.

:bigrofl::bigrofl: Close Grand! That's a miniature version of a tractor with no drive wheels that you give to your teenage son to push around and cut the "small" parts that you can't get at with the full size version!

I don't have one of those push thingys. Too much like work. If the weed wacker can't get it, it gets a dose of ground clear medicine.

Got a set of Carlisle Turf Savers mounted and put on the back of the DYT4000. Didn't have a chance to take a ride. T-Storms hit and it has been raining cats and dogs all afternoon. Flash Flooding in the area.

:bigrofl: That's a good one Grand!
I was thinking it was what you called to tractor when in got stuck in the mud trying to mow even though it won't stop raining...
But after doing some research, I found out it's a componet piece to weld several together and pull behind the tractor as a gang mower. :thumbs:

I didn't actually get to work on my Sears SS12 but I went and picked up my parts I got off of Ebay. I got a full set of front spindles for it since I damaged one last Friday while skidding logs. I also picked up a set of top adjustable links that I was missing from my mowing deck and the guy asked me if I needed some rims and so I picked up some 23-8.50x12 rims with tires. I now have a contact for when I need more Sears SS12 parts and he is only 30 minutes away. Maybe I will install the spindles and the clutch arm today.

The small parts of the lawn that can't be mowed with the GT? Huh. I guess my brand of push mower is "Roundup".
