Does it count if I did something to someone else's tractor?
If so, I managed to get a Bolens 1000 off my trailer ON IT'S OWN POWER
1967bolens collector (Sam) found it on eBay of Craigslist, but it was here in OH while he's in NJ. He asked me if I would go get it and pay the seller and he would reimburse me when he comes this way to pick it up.
There was some mis-communication involved with the seller as he told me that it ran and moved under it's own power, but told Sam different.
Anyway when I got there it turned out that it DIDN'T run, and to make matters worse (or better as it turned out) it was missing the freewheeling pin. Without that even if it did run, it wouldn't move. However that turned out to be a good thing since we had to push it onto the trailer.
Anyway, the weather got nice and warm today and I decided to get it off the trailer. I borrowed a freewheeling pin from one of my tractors, got it installed, then tried to start it. Since the battery is toast I jumped it with one of my diesels. A splash of gas in the tank, opened the fuel valve, a small shot of ether, and it fired right up.
Now it's in the back yard waiting for Sam to come and get it. However there is a RANSOM DEMAND involved now
There will be a vid of it over on the Bolens forum shortly.
