Tomorrow I hope rains hold off so I can mow more with it, but I'll get a grease fitting in the deck spindle first & get it lubed & quieted, plus of course grease everything else.  Things are not worn & I'd guess it's been sitting a while, as all the linkages are a bit snug & need some PB Blaster to loosen things up.  The forward/reverse pedals are real slow to return to neutral once you take your feet off either.  

  I also need to take my JD430 to my FIL's, as his JD420 has an issue, then the Kubota he bought burnt the deck belt, so he's without a working mower.  I'll drop my 430 off & bring back his 420 & get it fixed for him.  One of the air filter housing screws backed out & is under an intake valve.

  The deck belt on the Kubota was new last Fall, but he admitted he was putting it through the mill in tall grass around his barn that hasn't been mowed even once this year.  He never knew it was pulling the deck so hard, as he said that little diesel wasn't straining a bit!

  Gonna be a busy day, as I milk morning & night.

Daniel, you have probably thought of this already but will teeing into the return line cause it to back up as there may be more pressure on the line coming from the tank than the injector return? I'm not familiar with that fuel system but wouldn't the relative pressures have to be taken into account for it to work properly.

Won't be any problem, as the return line is a 5/16" ID, and the restricting hole will only be a tiny hole, using like a 1/32" wire drill.  Just large enough to purge air, but not flow much fuel at all.  Also, the T in the return line will only be 2" or so from the dump back into the tank.

I didn't get to sleep till around 3am, and rise at just before 6am.  But not as much the excitement of the F935, but more from having a Mocha chock full of caffeine too late in the evening.

  Getting ready to go fix the purge fittings on the 935.

The one blade cut kinda funny, and it had a loose bearing.  I happened to have several of those bearings on the shelf, so took the spindle apart to replace it.  Found why it cut funny..... no woodruff key in shaft for pulley!  Some people should be banned from attempting repairs!  Maybe me included, as I had a bear of a time getting the shaft through the bearings.  The former mechanic has swelled the shaft on the end.  If I damaged the bearings & they go out again, I'll put the shaft in the lathe & get it right next time.

Tonight I took the turf drive tires/rims off & put on a set of ags I already had mounted on rims with more offset.  This made my footprint 4" wider overall, so much more stability, plus I bolted on 50lb plastic covered concrete weights to each rim.  She's going to work right away!  Deck is kinda noisy, so I think I'll have to put new bearings in all the spindles.  Strange thing is, all the spindles feel fine when turning by hand.

  The hydro in this one is MUCH stronger & more responsive than in my older 935.  The deck lift is also much faster.

Was almost dark when I got back from mowing more roadside, so I'll snap a pic later.

Sounds like you got a great almost new machine for very little investment. Maybe you'll have to use the other machine as back-up, parts machine. You did very well in my book. :thumbs:

Yep, the older one will serve as backup, or if I need a major part, it will serve as parts to keep this better one going.  I should be good for life with the 2 of them.

I think I'm gonna be sick! Not that I would buy anything green like that but down here $500 wouldn't buy you one even if it had been run through a shredder.

Well that tears it!!  Daniel, I'm sorry you got skunked on that deal.  Should I just come up and take it off your hands so you won't have to look at it anymore?
