Wanted to cut down the winter rye in the lower garden with the DB I got last weekend ,was making a snapping sound when I tried pulling on the starter , found the spark plug wire cut through , nothing that a piece of paper clip and electrical tape couldn't take care of for a temporary repair so I could have a little fun today , Al

Today I finally took some tractor time. Took the rusty wheels off one of the Bush Hog JBI's , then removed both the old tires. Got 1 rim over 1/2 sandblasted. Gotta do afternoon dairy chores, so may not get anymore done. At least I got started!

Rebuilt/replaced the center Quill on my 52" Murray mower Saturday. Housing, bearing flange was wallowed out, so paid $39.00 for a new housing. Dumb on my part, I ran it all last year and some this spring and did not know it had grease zerks till I had ruined the housing. Back together and running good.
The John deere 318 i is torn apart to put a new bearing in the PTO Clutch, hopefully will have that back together this week.

Fixed my throttle cable on my JBI with the twin TJD engine. Cable housing came loose at the throttle lever.

Put a set of used tires and wheels on the rear of the G11. was going to install the new battery, but discovered that the battery end of the positive cable is gone. Gonna have to fix/replace that.

Mounted the 3-pt and the sleeve hitch adapter on the 1886. I don't have the right lift arms installed. I have the right ones, but need to put new ends on them as the originals are rusted junk.

Moved the G10 over to the small concrete pad I have so I can dismount the Sickle-Mo and then mount it on a 1256. Taking a break right now, and pondering it I should wait until tomorrow to do that.

Sanded, primed and painted the back sides of the hood supports and the front bumper of the 120. I also painted the wheels after mounting the new tires.

Finally got around to poking into the weird rumbling noise from the mower on the Craftsman GT6000, found it wasn't the quills, but the idlers. Whew, those are at least reasonable to fix.

Also puttered with the offending Rotospader that has been kicking my arse for a month. Finally put a different (wrong one, but handy) carb on it and away we went. Determined there was a hairline crack in the casting of the original, twice rebuilt, carb. I never would've have gotten it. Tried to take a pic, but can't get close enough to see it without the camera loosing focus.

Also, took the two parts tillers and made one wide body MF tiller out of it with the right input shaft. Have lots more work to do on it before using, but I wanted to have it assembled in time for the Summer Show here, just for looks.

If you are talking about the 3-pt to sleeve hitch adapter, it's this one:

Here's a vid of it in operation:
