Gave the old girl a bit of a workout over the weekend. We had strong thunderstorms with lots of wind Friday evening. Lost some big branches off a couple of cottonwoods, and a decent size maple in the back. The Bolens was enlisted to pull the trailer around picking everything up. Put 3+ hours on it. It ran and drove great.

I must say that it came out top notch. If I ever have the pleasure of restoring one of these tractors I will be referring to this wonderful thread. Great job to be proud of.
