I installed an oil pressure gauge on the FF 20 today.

And I had to rework my GTTalk reading chair. No pics of that. But it pulled the bolt through for the recline feature. Nearly had a recliner. Which was good for reading, but hard to reach the keyboard. It's all welded back up so I can continue my quest of reading all your fine posts.

Well...spent my birthday working on the 140 that I'm resurrecting. It knocks a little. Smokes a little. But hey, who knows when the last time its seen life. Hydro is great. I put the sleeve hitch on and mounted the plow. Pulled it about 6" to see if it would be ok under a load. It did great. Oh and yes I stood on it to operate it LOL.uploadfromtaptalk1361655545776.jpg Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2

Fixed the depth control bump stop on my Ford 1500. While testing it I graded the lane. It is partially frozen but was able to knock the top off some ruts just the same.

I put bumpers under the seats on my 126 and 127. Wanted to do some more work on the 126 but decided its too cold. Can't wait for warmer temps.

Took off the old tires from my Kubota's 8.5x8 rims. I could tell they hadn't been taken off in a while since the steel bead rings were rusted to the rims. I had to use an angle to cut the steel bands then I ran a chain through rim and another through the tire and used my cheery picker to rip them apart... I am also referb'ing the grill on the 682.

I put on all new battery cables on the JD 314. I think i have the wiring for the starting system figured out with the help of Trav1s and ol'stonebreaker... Thanks guys for the help!!

 

 

 

ETA: bought a new battery , ignition switch, and spark plug.

 

Also found out tonight the petcock on the gas tank was busted , the hard way! :wallbanging:

 

Bright side : i did get it to crank over sunday night ! :thumbs:

Got the frozen idler pulley repaired on the deck for the 212. Bought one at Thrifty Supply for $9!! Sure beats JD pricing! Mounted the deck back on the 212 and I also removed the PTO tensioner. It was frozen. So after some PB Blaster and a little love from me it works like new. Just need to give it an oil change and it will be ready for spring mowing! I can smell the fresh cut grass already (or my dog just passed some gas). Eric Sent from my SPH-D700 using Tapatalk 2

horibile day for garden tractor work i started off putting a solenoid on the cub 1810. that didn't fix it. decided to look into the clutch issues on the 1200 i think i have it figured out. it wasnt wanting to disengage it looked like the throwout bering was on backward so i took the assembly apart turned it around now i need to find a way too compress the spring so i can put it back together. went to go to the parts store to get some fuel line for the 1810, jumped in my old ford and hit the key and it went click. got in the blazer went to the napa to get 2 feet of fuel line, they only had a foot. went back and made that work...it didnt matter it still wont fire up and run.charged up the battery on my old ford and took it for a ride all the pretty girls were checking us out (its known fact that women love a truck thats 9 different colors) took it home cause she wasnt running right i opened the hood and gas is pouring out of the bottom of the carb jumped in and put it in its parking spot and the power steering pump went out.went in and got the test light out for the 1810 and started chasig wires and actually got it straghten out so i pulled the carb off of it and took it apart and cleaned it. the jet was pretty nasty went to put it back together and the bowl gasket got streched out so i called it a day and went and got a 30 pack of hamms beer and taking it easy.

I have been rebuilding the engine on my JD 400 and yesterday I bolted it back onto the tractor, made the necessary connection to fuel and electric, plus choke and throttle, and turned the key. O how sweet it is. That engine purred like a kitten. Will try to get some pics soon.
