Alan, you're a long way for 'old'.

 

 

No No Kenny, he IS old. Or at least showing all the symptoms.

Have you seen that thread, where he traded in some good speakers

for a plow that he doesn't what to do with? Oh well, at least that'll

keep him from dancing, and falling down and breaking a hip. :D

Had a bunch of crapola to deal with when I got home and it took exactly four times longer than it needed to, but eventually I got up to the farm and hooked the plow to the ss12. We have had a bunch of rain the last few days, but I wanted to take the surface brown off. Plowed from dusk:30 until quarter after wheresthefurrow, but got it turning the dirt over.
Took the orbital to it afterwards and really cleaned it up. Then shot it with black... Good to have it done.

I really inspected it tonight. Not sure it's been used more than twice as the moldboard and most of the point still shows casting imperfections.

I need to weigh this one. Seems about 10 lbs heavier than my other one.

Maybe it just feels 10 pounds heavier because of the aging? :rolling:

My wife says we are all just big kids now as all we want to do is play with bigger toys than when we were little kids.

Just a note on aging.  Yesterday was our 24'th anniversary.  My wife's friend told her that she was just 8 when we got married.  I said, "Did you tell her that you were only 4 the first time I got married?"  yeah, I have a few years on her.

And... Nice looking new toys you have there. The speakers mean a lot less to me these days too.  Of course, when I get old, I may just wish I had good speakers, on my phone, on my TV set, you get the picture.

I just had the lift arm in my hand and walked past my lift arm from the 66 Sears.
Thought you guys would get a kick out of the comparison

Do you know the true year on the skinny lift arms? They are the same as on my 64 -725.

I think they were the same from 63 to around 66. I will see if the lift has a tag on it next time I'm near.
