Between morning & night dairy chores, I thought I'd get several things done on my Bush Hog D4-10 restoration. But just as I got into it, company kept dropping by, so ended up not getting anything done. By the time I had the chance to do more, it was afternoon chore time again. :wallbanging: This happens almost every weekend. I'm a social person, but I get little shop time any more. :mecry:

You forgot chalk outline of a body on the floor,
Incessant mumbling to yourself and giggling,
Parking the leaking "honey wagon" near the entrance door to the shop,
" If this garage is a rocking, don't bother knocking" sign on the door knob...

Ya gotta remember my shop is a mess. No room for body outlines!
Many days I mumble to myself (like today), but no giggling!
This is pure country country, so a poo wagon wouldn't keep anyone away. They'd ask for some to take home to their garden!
If my shop is a rockin, then I likely just blew something up! LOL

I don't care for Dobermans myself, so I'd not be able to enter my shop either!
Police tape would just draw more spectators here in the country, and "do not" anything signs would be an invitation to do just the opposite!
That last one just might work! I plan to do some morning shop work, so I'm not showering! Maybe I should go ride the 4 wheeler across the fields till I can find me a ticked off skunk! :bigrofl: Brian (TD&H) seems to think that would keep people away! :smilewink:

Since I know my plate is overfull for the projects I want to do this winter, Ryan and I spent an hour in the garage "winterizing" a couple of running, spare engines. Then we put them in storage. He and I also got that hirth engine freed up and running, I don't know what to do with it, but it sure makes the noise. After she fired the first time, Ryan went and got earmuffs. LOL. Good boy!

Got a late start installing the 3 point hitch from my parts Massey 1650 on the MF14. Got the fenders off, removed rear wheels and drilled the needed second hole on each side of the frame. Mounted it on the tractor and the wife called............Honey Do. Got that done and it was 3 PM. Went back out but it was already 105 degrees so I decided to :beer: Will work some more on it Monday and take pictures.

Spent the whole day tearing down a very stuck Y91 engine in a Massey Harris Pacer. Took about 6 hrs to get the engine freed up. Lots of cleaning yet to do, but a major step in the right direction.
When I get the engine running, it's slated to be horse traded for some GT stuff. Don't want to jinx it, just think we are both getting what we want out of the deal.

I traded my 66 suburban 12 for a new to me cub cadet 129 and a deck. I got the cub home and swapped rear tires with my 68 sears super 12. I prove it around a little at 9:00PM haha. This thing is quick! tomorrow when I am board I am going to see if I can get the PTO clutch unfroze and maybe mount the deck. I gotta some wiring on it, it dont charge or turn over with the switch so that happens tomorrow.

Got up to 107 today but we had some overcast so it wasn't too bad working outside. Got some weeds pulled out of the garden spot and then went to work on the MF14 3pth install. Here's a pic. of the hitch mounted. I had to drill two 1/2 holes in the frame for the bottom of the bracket.

Then I installed the hydraulic lift.

Just kidding on the last pic. Next I fabricated the bracket to hold the hydraulic cylinder.

Probably will not get to work on it tomorrow..................Honey Do List.

Well I got my Wheel Horse C-175 project finished today. It has been a real pain getting the hood finished. I have painted this thing 3 times. Had the red painted, taped the hood so I could paint the black, painted the black and it looked really good, when I pulled the tape off some of the red pulled off and was so mad I had to wait a couple days before fixing that. Got that fixed and had the hood opened to put the headlights back in and as soon as I turned to get them the hood fell forward and hit the concrete floor. More sratches and a dent or two. Needless to say it was another couple pays before I wanted to fix it again. After fixing it again I was putting on the decals and when I went to reposition one it pulled the paint. This paint pulling is really something. I have painted many tractors and never had this problem before. I think it was caused by some primer I got at ACE hardware. First time and last I use that. Finally cooled down enough to finish the hood today. Still waiting for the side decals but here it is.

Not too sure about those 26x12x12's on there though. Had to raise the seat pan up about an 1 1/2" to clear and I did put a deck under it but it may be too high to be useful. May have to use it as a plow tractor.
