Changed the engine oil and hyrdo fluid. Maybe shouldn't admit it, but I bypassed the seat interlock switch.

Changed the primary PTO belt on My Murray mower deck and remounted the mower.
Did a test run and it's working beautifully again.

I had a chance to get the little Troy-bilt back in the shop this morning and change out the fuel line and filter. I had to remove the mower deck, seat pan and gas tank to get to the fuel line. This is going to make a good mower for our plant, with the foot hydro. It runs like a new machine, I don't think it has very many hours on it, 100.00 was a bargain.

Just about anything you can get that you can do work with while you ride on it for $100 is good. From the pictures what you got is great. Glad it's turning into a work horse.

Worked on the weed-eater Saturday and got it running good, it needed the spark plug cleaned and re gaped, now I can use the pole saw attachment and get some of these trees trimmed.

Too hot to do much! But I did take the Murray and trailer out to the garden and pull 60 lbs of onions, haul them to the garage to dry.

Painted the tank, frame, pump housing, and fly wheel for the #20 Air Compressor, painted the fiberglass fenders for the '63, and primed two sets of front and rear rims. Sun was hot, but the limited breeze kept me going. Tomorrow I'll apply a top coat of yellow to the rims, and mount a set of tires on the set of rims I painted last week.

Worked on the 'new to me' JD 68. Had to pull the carb and clean out the old gas residue. Changed the plug, it started firing, then quit. Checked out what parts are needed to get it mowing again.

I got the carb kit put on the Bush Hog D4-7 and got it running pretty decent. I also worked on another guy's Wheel Horse Commando 800, the governor wasn't setup right and it would only go to about half throttle. I got that fixed in about 1/2 an hour and it does good now.

I have been trying to get the 314 back together. The console was rusted bad on one side. It was also crooked so I straightened it when I was repairing the rust damage. Now when I go to attach the engine side covers they don't want to fit. And the front grill is also giving me trouble. I have been adjusting the location of the hood mount bracket to get the covers and the hood to all fit together. The front grill seems too close to the muffler. There is only about 1/2 inch between the muffler and the plastic mounting studs for the JD logo on the grill. I'll figure it out eventually but if anyone has any suggestions I'd like to hear them.
