mowed the lawn with the 147 worked on prepping the frame from the 124 for paint. getting that tractor ready for paint is allot of work. it stilll is surprising how much good metal is under that bad paint and rust.

Stripped the deck I got from jpcubs so he can have the spindles back. Tried to break down one of the 8" wheels I got from him and broke the HF tire changer. Pulled the bolt head thru the bottom channel iron. Didn't know I was that strong. Made some 1/4" thick washers for those bolts, that should take care of that problem. Finally got it broke down and off the wheel. That sucker was stuck on there.

Put a good coil & ballast resistor on my Bush Hog T-63, so she runs again. Put a battery into the Unico 15 & fired her up. Got the TJD powered Bush Hog JBI fired up, had a bad key switch. Ran the MF1010 a while, being she's sat idle for a while. Worked a bit on a fella's Case 224.....got the lift handle button working freely, checked the deck belt, & used grease needle to lube it's deck idler. Had a fun day!

Started working on the 314 electrical wiring. Cleaned the ignition switch and male contacts and removed the female contacts from the connector and cleaned them. Lots of corrosion and dirt on the contacts. I need to rewire the safety interlocks for PTO , neutral switch and the seat switch is MIA so I need to buy or make one. One of the PO's disconnected all the interlocks. I'm also adding LED taillights.

Yesterday was my last day of vacation, did a bunch of little household things I had hoped to accomplish, then tightened up the steering on the Sears 12. While I was under there, I noticed a leak on the rear end. Water had gotten in and raised the levels... looked like chocolate milk. Drain flush & Change. Then I adjusted the brakes on it & replaced the stretched springs on the belt tightener. Bunch of little maint items, but still felt good.

Finished rewiring the 314 and changed out the wheel bearings in the front wheels. I had to kludge up a puller to get one off of each wheel. I was able to pound one out of each wheel then pulled the other one out. I probably could have done it with a bigger hammer but with the puller I didn't damage anything.
