That did not take you long to get going. It sounds great. Good news on the S/G, the regulator should be a quick fix. You will have to take some vids of it rolling. The new year will bring new life to this old bush hog!!:thumbs:

Had to run tot own today, but got a few minutes with the T-63. Turns out the regulator was fine. The strange readings I got.....the ammeter was hooked up backwards! :bigrofl:
Oh well, the regulator got cleaned up good! And the headlights nor tail light worked, but crossed over the terminals & ALL work great. Took the switch apart & cleaned the contacts.....lights! Gotta go milk those darned cows again! They keep cutting into my fun time! :smilewink:

Glad to hear you found a simple fix. I love it when that happens!

I salute farmers like you! Just had a tall glass of milk, thought of you!

Here's to more fun time!

Took it for another spin yesterday, & the left front hub bearings began to seize up. So new bearings go in today. Luckily I have some new 1" tapered bearings on the shelf.

When I buy bearings, usually off ebay, I always buy in quantity. If you need one now, you'll be needing more later. Having what you need NOW is invaluable many times.

The new bearings are in, plus I packed the other side with grease. Someone put these in without any grease at all! The other side was dry, but the bearings & races were still perfect. Been driving her around. Strange thing is, now the carb seems perfectly fine! No surging or anything out of normal. Temp is just 30, but I may drive it the 1/2 mile to my BIL's in a few.

I may get the T-63 out today, but then it is kind of muddy. I'll at least fire her up, just to listen to the sweet sound of that little Wisconsin engine!
