Anyone know what the red gell is inside the front tires?
Naval jelly would be my guess.

Pulled the carb off the FORD, needs a new float. Fixed the recoil on the Plow Hoss and it has no spark. Sat and stared at the RUGG.

I would say the red stuff is stop leak of some sort.

Naval Jelly doesn't really make sense because the inside of the rims are in really good shape, no rust or paint build up at all.
I'm thinking it is stop leak of some sort too. I got some on my hands and it slightly stained. Plus when I was wiping it off with it left a fibrous material, almost like cotton fibers. I would say it is 2" deep in the bottom of both tires.

Took the Bolens HDT1000 off to put some new tires on the rear. The Ags that it came woth were pretty worn and weather checked. I put a set of 26-11-12 CST Ancla ATV tires on it. They are a real aggressive 6-ply 'Ag style" tire. I got them real cheap, at $75.00 each.
When I was getting ready to load it up on the trailer, the battery gave out while trying to start it. Even with a jump from the HT20D it just wouldn't crank over. I looked at the battery and saw that it was sold back in july 06, so I guess it was pretty much time for a replacement anyway. So, it was off to Wally World, and with a new 600 CCA battery, it spun over REAL good, and fired right up.
So today, not only did "Baby get a new pair of shoes", but a new battery as well.
Nice thing is that the ANCLA tires use a Husky dog as a logo, which fits real well with the Bollens Husky brand
Here's pics of the new tires. They were already dirty by the time I got the pics as the HDT is my trailer spotting tractor, and the side yard is pretty waterlogged.

Yesterday, I got a few minutes here & there. I have been working on trying to get my Hour-o-meter in the 18/6 to work again. It would work for a minute, then quit..30 seconds, then quit, 3 minutes, then quit... Grrr
I finally drilled a hole in the side of the case towards the top and below the display. Then I hosed in a bunch of good penetrating oil.
Played with it & played with it... kept putting in the oil... eventually, it started to just slow down once in a while, but keep going. Now it runs great and is ready to go back in the dash.
I also got the snowplow angle blade mounted and tested. One bend to make & then it's all good & done... just have the REST of the tractor to fix up & restore.

Fixed the recoil starter on the RUGG today(frozen one way clutch). Now the engine turns over great. Next is to try and clean the tank and the carb. The FORD sucked some more trash up in the carb.

Looks like a mess.
The guy we (my brother and i ) bought it off of said it had been sitting for about 10 years. I found alot of mice nest stuff , oh joy! Too cold to pressure wash today, but monday it looks like it's going to be about 50 out. So guess what i'll be doing?

I got the 'new' wheels put on the FF20 today! I turned the tires so the old inside was facing out. I even got them on the wheels correctly! I'm right proud of myself for that!
I thinks he's ready to go plow now!
